Hello - Below is a few pictures of a current route that Me, David and a few others r working on. This route will be the real life MBTA route between Frammingham and Boston. We are asking any1 from the Massachusetts Area if they would be willing to help out. You can do this by contacting me on my AIM (Ilovetrainz) - This route is going to be VERY detailed and we r going to have a website coming up shortly for the route. We have currently done a few sections but We need to add A LOT of detail =). If you want to help out! Please do :)

Is the route gonna be passenger-enabled? If you are thinking of anymore boston MBTA routes, then please do the
Fitchburg line out of North Station. I live on it, so thats would be cool. Also the Amtrak downeaser would be something to consider. Of course, one route at a time.

I'll see if I can passenger enable the stations, expand the route, and I'll fix up the route a little with the help of some people

If only someone would make some Kawasaki Bi-levels to go with MuttsMooch's horizon MBTA reskin, and his F40 reskin, when Magicland lets him release it.

Forget about the F40. Juts forget it.

Bi-Levels, like I said, will be coming soon.

whatever you say (About te F40), It just was when you said it in the other thread (About the Bi-levels), it sounded like a big possibility, hopefully I can start Gmaxing soon, because I think I've found tutorials for v1.2, now to find somewhere else to DL them from.

Is the route gonna be passenger-enabled? I'll only Like it a lot (I' like it a bit no matter what) if it is. If you are thinking of anymore boston MBTA routes, then please do the
Fitchburg line out of North Station. I live in concord, so thats my route. Also the Amtrak downeaser would be something to consider. Of course, one route at a time.
At this time, were not sure if we are going to do this part, I'll try to get back to you on that...

The next step in the project will be 5-7 baseboards (This will be the Wellesley section)
which will consist of 3 stations...we'll be working on the minor details...
Here are some updated pics....

Hey, Chris.

I suggest you read the topic I started about them (from a while ago). If you notice, I wasn't able to get permission to release them. But everyone can still use the F7's if they want. I'm also going to look into creating the Gp(38?) that the MBTA uses.

Hope that helps a little.:D

By the way; I'd be willing to take some screens of the F40 on the route, if you want, anybody?

I meant GP40, but yet it's a GP40MC. GP40 would look different.

Your Bi-Levels are not realistic but you can visit www.kawasaik-railcar.com (http://www.kawasaik-railcar.com) then go to Urban then Commuter the MBTA for Blue Prints that can possibly help in mesh Creation. It is just my opinion that Magicland is tourturing all of us T fans and I amvery surprided that i a not the only Trainz Fan in New England more like America even.

It is time. Bend the law a little. Anyway Magicland probably has a life so he will get to you back. I am happy about your creations.

Do you mean release them without Magicland's permission? That not only is an ignorant idea, but I would potentially get banned. Plus, I respect Magicland's decision, even if some others disagree with it.

Besides; Better late than never.

You CAN'T be serious, Magicland Speciffically said NOT to release the F40, So MuttsMooch probably would get banned, and if not, no one would like him unless (Like me, and a few others) they had seen this thread. MuttsMooch would hate you if he wasn't as smart as he is!

speaking of which im studing ethics this semister...taking a break from the reading as i post this

think if you had an invisable ring, that would make it so no oen could ever possiably see you. you could do whatever you wanted, and whoever you wanted if you catch my drift

but, knowing all the stuff you could do, would you still do it? Or would you feel bad about it and choose not to do it

Hey all

I know its been a while but I started a new job and thus the lack of response for many months now.

I just hopped back on the forums and noticed this thread. Its neat someone else is also taking a crack at the Boston Line. I cannot seem to find my old thread on this newly redesigned forum but I had worked on the Boston line doing Framingham -> Boston for the past couple years. The project stalled when I decided to redesign it using new maps, but that was proving to be a lot of work so I've gone back to the original (mostly-prototypic) original map.

New screenshots soon!

Howdy. Yes I had been having a tough time deciding whether to scrap the "mostly-prototypic" route in favor of the new one built on those pre-colored baseboards for an idea of where roads/lines/rivers, etc. are. But then I realized how much work had gone into the original, so I will finish it.

(sorry for hijack, I'll start a new thread shortly, but I'd love to see your guys' progress!)
