Hey everyone,
Was just browsing aroung the VSC website and found the "Fallen Flag Series" portion and noticed it said to visit at a later time. I was wondering (and hoping) that he LNE route is still in the works and will be available sometime in the future. I know Andre just got done with the A&O Sub but I was just wondering if anything will become of the LNE route. Sorry to bring this up so soon after the A&O Sub was complete but being the LNE is one of my favorite Railroads (and living in the area also helps) I was just hoping to see it done by one of the best Route Builders around. biggrin.gif blush.gif

Thanks for you time!

-Jeff

Oh yes Jeff, you can be sure Andre will be working on it again. He has a lot of it done already so you can be sure he is not going to just throw it away. I am looking very much forward to it as well as it promises to be a great route. Not that the other two aren't but I know the LNE will set a new standard from the pics he has posted thus far.

Yeah, you can count on it being done at some point. I think he has a turn of the century Colorado steam route in his plans as well, not sure in which order though.

Hi Jeff!

Like Tim said... it's a comin'... but not anytime real soon.

After I get the A&O settled into it's market niche, I need to get the StLNA Equipment Pack out. That will take a few weeks.

THEN it's back to the LNE Phase 1. Then it's onto the Colorado Midland: Ute Pass, before going back to the LNE Phase 2.

More LNE info can be found here at the forums with a search, I would bet.

However, bear in mind... it COULD be a while. You're not alone though... check out this chap that's also waiting for the LNE.. (pic below)...

Tim & Andre,
Thanks for the quick reply. Glad to see the LNE is still in the works! I'm sure the Colorado Midland route will also be awesome! Can't wait! biggrin.gif

Thanks again!

I wish you would stop showing that picture of me Andre. It was not one of my better days at the time it was taken. I forgot to comb my hair first! laugh.gif laugh.gif wink.gif

Hi 'ya Gixxer!

With as much that remains on the LNE, it is going to be quite a project. Tons of objects left still to build (barely started, actually)... and then populate a bunch of tiles. It will be worth it when finished though, neat railroad.

Instead of "Hainesville", are you sure you're not talking about "Hainesburg"?

Hmmm! I guess everyone does think that is me since no one commented on my post about the above picture. Well, ok, I give up, it really is me, and I did comb my hair. So there. And yep, I am on here so much that spider webs do actually get spun between me and the screen. They have become my friends too. blink.gif ohmy.gif laugh.gif

Lest we forget what this thread started out about, Andre has before taking the brake to do the A&O Sub, been hard at work on the LNE. The route stretches from the area around Penargyle eastward towards New Jersey and will feature shared trackage with the likes of the SusieQ.

The LNE was also an Alco road, as was the NYSW at that time, with the NYSW having a fleet of RS1's.

Hi Paul!

Right you are... the LNE is going to be an extremely enjoyable route.

BTW, if you want to fix the road issue on your installation of the A&O Sub, replace your modified JP road shapes with original default shapes. They will then be at the default height.

Andre,

Thanks. It took some searching to find the spot on my 3 hard drives where I had put the back-up of the shape folder. Copied the JP road files over and this is the result.

Looks just great!!!

Thanks again!!!

Paul
