That doodlebug in shot #2 looks sort of like this one available over at the TS library. With a little reskinning, we could have a rather fair representation of old 91.

Hi Christian:

Right now, the announced route products are on hold due to several factors. Mainly, because of heavy (short term) vocational and non-MSTS commitments. Any projections for a release time on any announced route product would merely be wishful thinking on my part at this juncture.

What MSTS time I've had since the release of the A&O has been occupied with computer concerns and a few A&O issues. At this point I am at least 2-3 weeks behind on the StLNA Pack. Before I return to route production I intend to re-evaluate the targeted projects and their anticipated release dates.

I realize that doesn't specifically answer your question, but at least it is a candid look at where I'm at and why I am not in a position to speculate as to "when".

Well, I don't suppose for a minute that he will. But the truth is Andre probably needs to recharge after the release of the A&O, and with the other things he has mentioned above, he has more than enough to keep him busy for some time to come.

In any case, he has given us two great routes to use, and there's a lot of exploring in them yet.

Fire up them Alcos and pound some iron....

That's right, enjoy the StL&NA and the A&O.
I'm rerunning every A&O Activity with a different approaches; with and without DBs

Andre is a most efficient route producers, but let's give him a break to recharge and regroup!.

After all, a genius doesn't create on a schedule!

Is there a genius out there that could model that Whitcomb. There is only one at t-s and is European with chain couplers but could be a base to start. Many short lines bought these as they were war surplus from the Army. Paul you are right on about the doodle bug. Andre take it easy and don't short circut.

Hi Andre!

Don`t worry! smile.gif Good thing will take its time, how we`re saying in Germany! Finish just StL&NA-Pack and then begin to proceed with the LNE. Don`t hurry, life isn`t just Msts! smile.gif
We all looked long time to find with the A&O a really good Shortline and we`lll wait soetime for the LNE.
A Shortline in a hilly, mountainous Area is that what we like best smile.gif
BTW: The RS2 and the FA are my favourite locos in the US :-)

Kind regards from Bavaria,
Christian

Gixxer:

Fret not. No decision to axe the LNE.

Though the track and road work is 100%, the LNE will be a long project on account of the specific objects it will need. Plus, I may have to go back and reduce trackwork at Pen Argyl. Even with a basically bare tile, the object count is in deep doo-doo. Sadly, concessions must be made in a sim enviornment.

Hi Andre!

I think everybody is glad to hear this! smile.gif If you need some support for your objects,
surly there are some of us knowing how to use TSM.
As I am working by the time on my master thesis I can`t offer myself for support sad.gif ,
but I think there will be somebody to find in the forum smile.gif

Kind regards from Bavaria,

Christian

Good news Andre.As far as Pen Argyl is concerned,I think Dirty Harry put it the best "A man's got to know his limitations."It won't bug me to see Pen Argyl "downsized".I think we're all in agreement that a good represention is all we really need.Concessions must be made no matter what scale we model in.Thanks Andre!

Christian:

We're glad you like the St.L.&N.A.! Prepare to be "bitten" by the turn-of-the-century "steam bug", of which the Colorado Midland will be Andre's magnum opus.

I recently ran NA Activities No.1 and 2 again in order to give the Alcos a break. It was pleasant to "hear" J.D. Locke's sardonic travel comments as we rolled along.

Hi August!

I think It`ll take a bit of time but it`ll come with gods help it will finish. At least Andre told us this way:
