    basicaly i guess because as you said the long grain train cant go up the steep hill and it would be easier to run in on a flatter track even if it is longer. on the other hand pssenger or piggyback trains can take the steeper route and cut of some time.
    blaaaaah

    This route in MSTS was the inspiration for my Desert Wood Route. As you know I like desert routes so if you need any assistance let me know. I also downloaded the fishlips DEM but never got started.

    Looks good. I was just out there last month, drove from Las Vegas to Phoenix, and passed through Kingman. You have captured it nicely.

    From the video, the most common thing shipped are containers.

    Time for an update as I am working east to Flagstaff! Still got lots to do!


    Here's a train coming from Kingman Canyon and is about to pass thru downtown Kingman by the Santa Fe Depot. The Amtrak Southwest Cheif runs on the Seligman Sub and stops at the station. Kingman is also a town next to the Route 66.

    Outside of Kingman. Heading twords Williams.

    The open stretch as you see Williams in the distance.

    Here's the train passing the curve at Hackberry and a meet with an intermodal heading to Los Angeles.

    Crossing Crozier Road

    Heading twords Crozier Canyon.

    Here's a ruined house that is from the 1800's and is still there today. It's a landmark by the state of Arizona (True fact!).

    There's grades. One is in the Williams area and one huge hill near Seligman. -Chris

I am modeling the sub from Needles, California to Flagstaff Yard in Flagstaff, Arizona. The route crosses Kingman Canyon, Crozier Canyon, the Crookton Cutoff and thru the Alpines to Flagstaff. I have only been working on the Kingston area this evening and this is what I've done: Kingman Canyon.

    Kingman Canyon is a section where the double-track mainline splits where one is at ground-level and the other is in the depth of the canyon floor. the line (going east) reconnects right before downtown Kingman, Arizona.




    A view of the south cliffs of the canyon.

    A BNSF train waits at a red light, going to Needles and we see a good veiw of the north ridge of the canyon.


    This route is mostly mainline. There is a few sidings in Seligman and Pica, and there is Flagstaff and Needles Yard, but the rest is mainline thru the great southwest of BNSF and former Santa Fe. -Chris
    Did you make that Crossbuck? Just asking.

    Yes, I know they whine. I haven't heard one in real life but I have many videos and it's easy to pick the sound up and tell that they're in breaking. Dynamic brakes do NOTHING in Trainz.

    They don't always whine, on a cabride video the DBs were on N7 on an SD40-2 and I couldn't hear a thing.
