    Default Tidewater Industrial Railroad

    Another project of mine is upgrading the Tidewater Point Rail route for TS10 to TS12 SP1, credit for the unmodified route goes to TPR. New scenery and trees have been added so far. The Tidewater Point Railroad was rebranded to the Tidewater Industrial Railroad. As of right now all leased power will be used, however I hope to get around to skinning a few SD40's or something for power. Here are the first few screenshots of the improved route. Feedback Appreciated.

    Two of TIRR's new SD40-2's begin their work. Simple scheme, any suggestions to make it better would be great.

    I honestly think that it would look better if it was solid grey w/a blue cab roof

    I am looking for quality bridges, I am having a hard time finding any.
    I don't think this bridge fits the scene.

    A trestle or Howe bridge might look good there, I think.

    Hello Again,
    Thanks for feedback!
    In order to make operating this railroad more interesting, I have decided that Southeast Terminal and Tidewater Industrial are now merging. STRX's C40-8's were recently transferred to the TIRR for use on the heavy unit trains leaving Tidewater. Some of TIRR's SD40-2's were sent down to Georgia. Expect to see quite a bit of STRX power on TIRR trains.

    Some shots around Tidewater...still a WIP...

    Is STRX a real railroad?

    Not that I'm aware of. It is a great fictional pack over at JR, you can get it here: http://jointedrail.com/southeast-terminal-rr-pack.html

    Need suggestions.
    Some Surveyer shots of Tidewater. Some ideas for track layout would be great, since I struggle with that.

    Tidewater just got into the used locomotive market again, this time for big power. TIRR bought 10 retired SD70MAC's from BNSF.
