Trials, Tribulations, Triumphs and Thoughts on creating and running this route in Trainz 2009 and 12, and now T:ANE.

  1. Landscape Linkup

    Today the scenery is complete on the east (timetable north) side of the tracks. Maybe this route will be complete by Hallowe'en. I am stoked!


    August 29, 2016. Today the last ziggurat is smoothed and the landscape rolls gently (or otherwise) from Iron Ridge to Fond Du Lac.

    There are only about 2-1/2 miles of scenery to install, from MP 137 down to 134 or so. Happily much of it is farmland although the village of Neda needs to be filled out.

    Work has continued sporadically, however, and it's been more consistent recently. Landscaping is now complete to Mile 140 and is reaching the south town limits of Mayville. There've been some improvements also in Iron Ridge scenery -- the anachronistic corn harvest (it's June) has been changed to an ...
