Well done Dekosoft.

I would really love to see just one 710 powered unit- a GP60 or SD60, like BN 8300 EMD leaser, or SD60M #9294 from the early eighties for this new set...

Looks great, guys--the models have really come a long way and Pete's paint is A+! (Patiently waiting for more CSX Heritage units.)

Well i think this is another great addon pack for msts, i have bought the csx and bnsf mainline theme packs, and i must say that i love the sounds, cabview and well everything else under the sun!! I plan on buying this pack when it comes out also, though i think you should also have a bn gp30 included, maybe that can be a bonus for this pack and a patched gp30 for the bnsf pack. man you gotta love the unique look to those emds. Other than that Chip, great job and keep hammering away with those awesome emds!!

Streamlines has just released their Burlington Northern Set(Engine Pack1). I would rather buy the Dekosoft set- it will be consistent with my other Dekosoft sets & the sounds are great as well. Plus you get the rolling stock, something Streamlines doesn't offer yet. Please get your BN set out soon!

Well, I guess you are trying to compare apples to bananas. If you look onto their website you see that the BN set is not a stand-alone set but meant to go along with their BN Northwestern Sub product line. So in due time you'll get a route and rolling stock to go with it.

However I am not here to defend SLI. I will in due time probably get both sets. I have most of Dekosofts sets and like them all. Yes, the locos look different, but no reason not to run them together! laugh.gif

I have not heard of the BN Northwestern Sub. I did see the Super Series warbonnet units which I do want to buy. I have The UP and both Santa Fe sets from Streamlines. I also have the older MLT BN Heritage Set as well as the beautiful B30-7 B-unit form Diesels West, so I didn't want to add duplicate stock. I like both companies' products, but it's hard to keep all of my equipment sorted out. I guess I need a new utility- maybe 'MSTS Bookkeeper' so I can sort out my freight services.

Erika, there is a real easy fix to keep things sorted.

Edit the name line.

For example
A Dekosoft, BNSF SD40-2, I would edit the name line like this

Name ( "BNSFDeko SD40-2 ****" )

The MLT will be

Name ( "BNMLT SD40-2 ****" )

Streamlines will be

Name ( "BNSFSTR SD40-2 *****" )

This helps me know where something came from.

Wow, those units look good. And the Crawford Hill route looks so much better with scalerail!

I see it's well worth the wait, it's been quit Dekosoft!

You're welcome, Erica!

I try to be as current as possible while surfing all the website containing add-ons for MSTS. As I'm currently re-building my copy of MSTS I'm a bit short on pictures but that will change soon!

But yeah, Crawford looks extremely nice with Scalerail! Should be a definite download! smile.gif

Sebastian,

I tried to visit your site but all I get is a blank page. Even with the lowest security setting I still can't get in.
Any suggestions? Or did you block my i.p. address wink.gif

I always liked BN, too bad they had to go soft and join ATSF wink.gif

Thanks guys, I love it cool.gif



Ahem!! I have never heard "BN" being mentioned as arguably the most noted railroad in history. ATSF even had song written for it.

I missed this thread,bummer. blush.gif

BN set looks like a must have purchase.

I am even getting to like the UP ( real thing ) after buying that set a while back. biggrin.gif

As we say here in West Wales ,"life sure is fun down on the Ponderosa". laugh.gif

Will the set be discounted to folks like me who have almost everything you sell (haven't got the CNW set yet, no reflection on your work just not one of my favorite RR's). The discount for previous customers is one of the things I appreciate and brings a lot of return business. I really enjoy the BNSF Mainline power set I have but prefer the BN as it suits the era I prefer to train sim in! smile.gif
