New CP Route In Wisconsin WIP
I am going to try and do the line from Muskego Yard in Milwaukee all the way WEST towards Portage....The main RR will be focused on the CP where in Milwaukee you will also have the UP running around.....I am going to try and get this far WEST as possible with good FPS's......
Here is a shot to start it off.....This here shot was taken in Duplainville on the Watertown Sub for the CP where the CN/WC Waukesha Sub crosses each other at grade
And yes...Them cars belong to the RR fans there that are taking the pix
Now I dont know how many people know the area accept Adam and Steve so they will know what I mean....Here is a map of the real thing on where this pic was taken from
And a ground shot of the area as well
Now this is like I said a WIP so stuff is willing to change from point to point.....

Ha ha ha....Yeah...This one was set a lil bit before them floods....lol
With the new crew on board from Portage...Train 398 is seen here at Duplainville where it is about to cross Duplainville Rd and head towards Chicago....With two SD40-2s and a "Red Barn" for power on this E/B Grain train.
Goes with this pic here

Now 2 shots from the WC/CN side....
First up is a Molton Sulphur train on its way towards Chicago
Next up is BNSF 8605 which leads a CN Train M336 south over the CP Plant at Duplainville heading towards Chicago

Thanks....Its getting there....Slowly but surely .......Most of the Milwaukee area is done now....Now I am working on my way towards Portage.....I started in Milwaukee and working my way WEST....Milwaukee is not right down to the last detail due to low FPS rates on others PC's...I am making this PC friendly......Most of the WSOR and UP stuff in Milwaukee is done....

With the weather being so nice...Lots of RR fans out in Duplainville today...But I only had time to wait and watch for one train.....So we got to see a CP auto train out of Milwaukee with a single CP unit race thru Duplainville on its way towards Portage.....But when we left....I looked back and the gates went back down and the Empire Builder from Portage raced on by....One day I'll catch that

Well part of Wisconsin Dells is done....There is more to add to this part and stuff to switch out and all...But this shows what the WI Dells part looks like....
A CP Auto train creeps over the Wisconsin River as it is about to pass the Wisconsin Dells Amtrak Depot....Hot on his heels is the Empire Builder #8 where this CP train will take the siding up ahead and wait for train #8 to pass on by after making the stop at the Dells first....
And a real pic of the area

Excellent work - it's the kind of Wisconsin layout I've been wanting
Can't wait to get loose on this one
Now if only I can manage to find some WSOR GP38-2s and SD20s ........
Keep up the good work.

Yeah I figure the bridge is lil to low....I'll have to drop some of the water or something.....The only trouble on that is that the ferry boat tour building is already level with the water and it was a pain in the *BEEP* to get it right on the money....LOL....But once I get the area all done and all textured up I'll send it off to ya Steve so ya can check it out and maybe touch some things up if ya want....I also took care of the weed problem in Dupy-Ville.....More pix will come soon.....Oh Steve...Any idea on what building to use for the Dells Depot??? Only one I could some what find is the Milwaukee Road orange one....I know that dont fit it but the size is pretty close...And seeing that it was ONCE a Milwaukee Road line....Just a thought...Maybe you can find a better fit...Here is what the real depot looks like for those who don't know what it looks like but might be able to tell me one that will be close to this http://www.trainweb.org/usarail/wisconsindells.htm ......Thanks
