Very Impressive; even the track looks better!
Question: In the area of Cab Controls, did these early Alcos have manual Transition????
I'm pretty sure the early Fairbanks-Morse units (like the H16-44) had manual Transition,
but I'm not sure about the early Alcos & EMDs.

With the way these shots keep looking, this route is going to ne the best looking eastern route out there, bar none.

"I try to reply to the guys about the lighting on S2 , yes the two light work DIM for backward and i have also put a cone light on the back of the engine when you are in DIM , but MSTS don't permit reverse cone light ( sorry is the best i can make ) Gaetan"
Looking good, isn't it fella's?

What Gaetan is saying, is that there is no way to have a true reversed light cone as defined by MSTS. Thus, instead of having two megaphones placed mouthpiece to mouthpiece, you have them elephant style.
Otherwords, instead of this:
The sim can do this:
It will be effective enough, but not strictly prototypical.

Just remember Gaetan, this railroad that Andre is doing wasn't that old then, so the engines weren't a total mess, plus the LNE line kept their engines pretty clean. At least the ones I ever saw in person or in books. I know you like them used, but remember this line did not have them looking too used!
Doesn't matter, a job well done so far. I will clean them up for my consumption. Just a thing with me Gaetan, just as it is a thing with you to have them as dirty as possible.

Please don't feel the need to apologize for your excellent work, Gaetan - those models look fabulous!
I'm most amazed at the fact that these are still being considered "works in progress" - I can't imagine them getting any more realistic looking!
