Very nice! Will it head into urban areas of Los Angeles? -Chris

Yes this route will go completely downtown with tall buildings and loading docks. Right now I know of an ice loading dock.. (we are modeling the 50's) piggy back trailers, general freight and passenger stations. Probably 3 or 4 total. This will be a good route for FPS with it only being about 12 baseboards. As soon as Steve (007007) get's his butt in gear and works on the downtown area I will post some more shots of our progress.

Will you be doing the trackage from Los Angeles to West Colton via Alhambra, El Monte, City Of Industry, and Pomona?

Tyler!!! New forum and you're not banned!! Awesome.

Eaglefan keep in mind this is an HO route representation of this area and not a DEM prototypical area like I ususally try to model. If you would like to see what we are doing look at the July 2006 Model Railroader page 58 and front cover.

I suppose I better get my butt in gear and finish up the LA part. I am working on the suburban area first, then I will move into the industrial area, then finally downtown :eek::eek::eek:

Additional Shots of my progress using NS37's beautiful GP60M's hauling a tanker train. I went completely around the route and have 11 shots to show however I will just show a few for now.

It's looking really good there Gotoguy but I'm intrigued by the semaphores in the fourth picture on the preceding page; are they freeware and where might they be found?

(Don't you guys use "spacers" or "runners" between locos and hazardous goods?)

I love the tankers, where can we find them??? CN has also a similar version. But white, that is....

Thanks

The Auran webside went down right when I posted 4 more pics. I will get this up this evening.

The semiphoresI have no idea where they came from. Maybe they are from NS37? I've got so much stuff sometimes I loose track of where it came from. I may change them out if they are indeed unreleased.

As for the tanker cars I'm almost positive I got them from the DLS. If you can't find them let me know.

Getting close to being finished with this one. I'm gonna let 007007 put his finishing touches on it then decide on how to release it. Anyway enjoy the pics.

Is this route a circular layout or a route?

007007
December 29th, 2006, 04:51 PM
It is more of a tweaked dogbone than a circle but it is a acutal model railroad that was featured in a Model Railroader earlier this year :)

It's actually a double track mainline and you can run continuously. I would say the best way to use this route is to set up 2 trains running continuously and act as a switcher moving industry from LA to Arroyo or off map via the iPortal's. The only problem I have with this route is the industries don't flow very well which I will figure out before it's released. The scenery is about 90% right now, Trackwork 100% so it's just a function of detail to FPS before released. Anyway thanks for the interest.

O yea am I missing something? ARe there road crossings that match that road? I don't seem to have any.....

All progress on this route will be done http://trainzforums.com/index.php?topic=8.0

I will let 007007 release it over there.. He just doesn't know it yet.

What you need at the end of the route is route 66! 66 is from chicago to LA!
