Via the Southern Pacific over Donner summit instead of through the Feather River canyon. Amtrak decided ridership in Reno was better than a scenic view. Not knocking Donner, its always my favorite second crossing of the Sierras.

Tony, if all you're looking for is the passenger view, try this... from Leland Fletcher:

CZ passenger views are available. Marc actually built them into the set. All we need to do is add the following lines to the wag file:

Add these after the Lights section:

For a dome view in any Dome Coach:

Inside (
PassengerCabinFile ( "CZ_Dome_Coach.s" )
PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.172 4.267 0.342 )
comment ( PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.70 3.667 0.342 ))
comment ( -Left+Right +Up-Down Back,Forward )
RotationLimit ( 30 110 0 )
StartDirection ( -10 10 0 )
Sound ( "GenFreightWag1.sms" )
)

For a view from a Dining Car table:

Inside (
PassengerCabinFile ( "CZ_Diner.s" )
PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.172 2.267 -5.342 )
comment ( PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.70 3.667 0.342 ))
comment ( -Left+Right +Up-Down Back,Forward )
RotationLimit ( 30 180 0 )
StartDirection ( 0 10 0 )
Sound ( "GenFreightWag1.sms" )
)


For views from a Dome Observation Car:

Remember, the passenger view will be from the front most car in the consist.

If you have multiple passenger views you must comment out all passenger views in front of the car that you want to view from.

Example: If you have a Dining car view and a Dome Observation view active you will need to coment out the Dining car to have the Dome Observation car view.

To do this just add:

comment ( before the Inside (
and add ) after the last )

Example: The first view is commented out:


comment ( Inside (
PassengerCabinFile ( "CZ_Dome_Observation.s" )
PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.172 2.267 -10.342 )
comment ( PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.70 3.667 0.342 ))
comment ( -Left+Right +Up-Down Back,Forward )
RotationLimit ( 30 180 0 )
StartDirection ( 0 10 0 )
Sound ( "GenFreightWag1.sms" )
))


Inside (
PassengerCabinFile ( "CZ_Dome_Observation.s" )
PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.172 4.267 -5.342 )
comment ( PassengerCabinHeadPos ( 1.70 3.667 0.342 ))
comment ( -Left+Right +Up-Down Back,Forward )
RotationLimit ( 30 80 0 )
StartDirection ( -10 10 0 )
Sound ( "GenFreightWag1.sms" )
)


The passenger view can be changed during the activity by commenting out and removing the comment on different views after saving the activity. Then just restart the saved activity and the new view will be in place.

I hope this is clear and not too confusing.

You are invited to enjoy the view.

Yours truly,
Leland
