View Full Version : Recommendations for MWG 3.0 trains?

September 20th, 2015, 04:40 PM
Hey all,

I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas about what kinds of consists to run on MWG 3.0 other than unit grain trains. Since it's the midwest (Iowa, to be exact), you'll find almost anything but I was hoping for some of your opinions.

Maybe long-haul coal trains?

Locals servicing industries? Surely there must be a few non-grain industries.

Ethanol, and by-products of the corn milling process, out bound. Propane, fuel products, agricultural implements, cement, & pipe/culvert inbound to name a few.

You can run a very long mixed train, drop all the wagons, then sort them, load them, unload them, pick them up again. There are various fuels, chemicals, oils, fertilizer, plastics, sleepers, lumber, Caterpillar, scrap metal, even manure. You can also get the RVSX Pack and just keep the trackside neat and tidy....
