Time to break up the monotony of only American trains! I don't have anything against them, but sometimes they do take over threads.

Everyone knows that where two main lines converge or otherwise meet, there's a diamond!

The line's resident 37, nicknamed 'Scotty' waits at Windrush station, ready to haul the return train on this preserved line, with an Autocoach on the bay and a restaurant car on the end of Platform 2. The photo was taken from the footbridge.

John, like the graffiti on the Lapeer Tower? What roads are those in your screen capture with the markings? Are those just overlay assets?

Semper FI!

How I wanted to put a train but then remember this week in Hanford California on the BNSF Bakersfield Sub crews are now working at night in which they've finished a ramp like project for the SJVR, (if anyone know what they are please by all means PM me.) Long story short BNSF speed went from 30 MPH to 45 MPH thru town. SJVR went to 5 MPH as they have a ramp that jumps over BNSF's rails now NO=GAPS THAT GO BOOM BOOM BOOM NOW:'( http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/1024x768q90/835/7s6z.jpg

Thank you Dan, the route is the Emily Bay Trainz Layout by Felix G, that has been modified and integrated in MWG PVRR theme, the roads are Yarnish, and the road markings are from Felix Groebli (felix_g), FG Road marking, all on the DLS.

The game has just ended as a westbound autorack rumbles through on a hot summer mid-evening in Kansas.

Amidst the sweltering heat, a load of processed diamonds arrive at Quahog City, bound for high street jewelers.

felix_g's screenshot does not meet the theme criteria. Those are not diamond crossings, they're square crossings. This screenshot should be disqualified.

I see you showing a lack of knowledge of RR terms, before critiquing others learn a liitle more about RR terminology. Ok, I am sorry I thought I was dealing with adults, my bad, go ahead with your bad self.

You sir need to shut it and let bygones be bygones. There is nothing wrong with his screenshot, if anything it is similar to mine. And yours? I can barely see the baseball diamond. Perhaps you want to make sure that whatever the theme is, it is visible to a good extent. Now then, be off.

Nice try. Having a look at the content of your posts so far I realize any serious comment would be a waste of time.

Okay, I have just seen nicky9499's posting in which he says up to three votes are allowed. I guess I must have missed that one. I will reiterate that this is very odd indeed. I mean, do you ever vote for more than one candidate for President in an election? Just wondering about this, that is all.

It has been 3 votes - sometimes 2 - for as long as I've been here...
