Wow, I can not believe that link still works. I just downloaded the original and successfully loaded it into TS12. That really threw me back.
Well, now at least we know that it's still out there for everyone to enjoy. And now you can compare how I'm tweaking the route to how Bill had it laid out.
I wish his paperwork was still out there. I might see if I can get in contact with him again to re-release the paperwork at the very least. I'm sure he'd be thrilled so many people are still enjoying his route.
I also forgot he built the original route in TS04. Man that was so long ago!!

Welcome back Bill! Glad you popped on and shared the paper work part of the route as there have been a lot of talk about it recently. I hope you've been enjoying my rebuild of your fantastic route. Let me know if you upgrade to TANE so I can shoot you the cdp file.
Might have to start a fresh thread on the P&B soon. 😉

Great videos, I'm trying to learn some Scenery technique.

Great to see you join this thread. Thanks for the support documents. As I said in my previous message I am very impressed with the route. It really doesn't show its age. I printed out those docs and have started to read thru them. Very interesting read and great fun. Provides a lot on insight into operation.

Thank you so much for your complements. One of the things I really like about my route is that it has the exact track arrangements there were at some of the coal mines and towns that I used to visit as a kid and watch the trains switch. Mine 78 and the Millcreek tipple are great examples of some of those track plans. So its fun to be able to switch and load coal trains on the same arrangement of track that I used to watch as a youngster. I replicated them from official track schematics and also by tramping on the track myself and memorizing the arrangement.
Is there anything I can help clarify about the route and operations?
