Okay...

The News Release is up at Train-sim.com...

The ad blurb is up at their MSTS forum...

(Thanks Andy for that very generous endorsement!)

Boy, it sure would be nice if some of the North Arkansas enthusiasts would head that way and make some noise! (hint... hint. biggrin.gif )

No problem, Andre. I think you've been pretty modest about plugging the route, and I hate to see all the modern diesel routes getting all the "ink." biggrin.gif

I've been having lots of fun with your activities, although I did end up with the infamous cornfield meet ohmy.gif last night on #3. I think I see why it happens, so I'm going to head back to it and see if I can get to B'ville successfully this time.

BTW, I got a pretty good chuckle out of the initial instructions for #3 - I had no idea that 'Ol Coonskin was such a legend in those parts. laugh.gif

He is a legend in his own mind. Just wait... you'll hear more about him. wink.gif


"So Andre - does this mean you are still a little short for that shiny new BMW?"


I figure I ought to be able to get that new BMW after, say, another 10,000 sales.

Andre, just for you I will go over there and put another plug in! But only for you. You know how much I hate that place but will post a few pictures and of course tell everyone they are missing a hell of a route, which of course is the truth. Glad you got the ad space there too. Listen, I wish you could sell another 10,000 copies. No one deserves it more than you do. But I would expect at least one ride in that BMW! laugh.gif

And I don't want to talk about the cornfield meet or nr 3. I can't get by there at all! Four times tried, four times failed. Ok, what is the secret, anyone???? blush.gif sad.gif

I suspect its the same thing that others are finding a challenge: Getting that tonnage up the hill from Junction to Tunnel... then getting the work done at Grandview.

Me thinks I cut the timing a bit close on this one. wink.gif

Sorry 'bout that!

Just think: Activity #3 is an EASY one. laugh.gif

HOWEVER....

Ol' Coonskin can do it a'twiddlin' his thumbs. ( rolleyes.gif Sheesh... what a braggert!)
