    Added left-hand whistle posts at the crossings. My fireman often failed to call them out while running long-hood first. Wish the GP-9 rear headlight...

FOND DU LAC :11 WIP

by RHKluckhohn on August 15th, 2017 at 03:11 AM
The West Forest Avenue crossing of the West Yard has been bugging me. Yesterday I tried a new approach, creating a second crossing of just the yard tracks with My Level Crossings-3 according to the directions while letting the SOO run on its own as is. Once again, it was all too close and the crossing was activated by cars standing at the adjacent industries and interchanges. Ripped it all out, then had the thought of modifying the My Level Crossings rule to take the minimum clearance down to 6

FOND DU LAC :10 WIP

When I started the Fond du Lac Branch in 2009 I was sure I'd avoid having a stack of revisions if I was just careful. Figured it would be "finished" by version 4. Oh, well. Still, less than 2 a year on the average.

Currently going through the sessions checking for issues with other folks' updated assets and spotting stuff I've done that doesn't measure up to my current standards (in other words, creeping perfectionism.) Somewhere between Tuesday p.m. and Wednesday, the FDDM&S

Fond Du Lac v. 9 released

by RHKluckhohn on July 18th, 2017 at 11:02 PM
Aaaand, to my great embarassment, must be replaced by :9, because I broke the E. 11th St. fixing it. The correctioon has been uploaded and perhaps will beat the bad version getting to you, we can hope.

The Basic Session has been updated too, and the Free Session has been added to the list of mods. Both should be available on the DLS shortly.

Sorry.

FOND DU LAC :8

by RHKluckhohn on June 26th, 2017 at 10:58 PM
Doing some polishing prior to uploading version 8 of the Fond Du Lac branch. Now that TANE SP2 is installed, it's time to migrate from 12 just to see if it works, and see what's needed to repair it (always the optimist!)

The major changes have minimal operational impact:
  • Moved the East and West Iron Ridge mainline signals to clear the foul points.
  • Gave up on the West Forest St crossing (SOO/West Yard) ATLS installation and reverted it to normal automatic control. ATLS could
