    Cool Miodusi Projects (Large Pics)

    Hi everyone, instead of making a bunch of threads for my routes, I'm going to post them on here. These are screenshots of my most recent project, the Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad.
    The following screenshots are in various areas in Illinois.

    Three CNS&M Silverliners approach Dempster Street.

    A Chicago bound Electroliner races past Lake Bluff.

    Some Greenliners from Mundeline approach South Upton Tower.

    A pair of Silverliners approaching North Chicago Junction

    More screenshots of my other routes will be on here later on.

    I grew up on the North Side with family in Milwaukee and rode the CNSM many times. Last time was July, 1960 a roundtrip that included the Electroliner on one leg. Thank you for such beautiful and time consuming work.

    Great stuff here. I grew up in Kenosha and always used to park by the wye track on Bain Station Road to catch the C&NW. There would be a local weekdays after school that would cut through Kenosha and stop on the south leg of the wye on Bain Station road and eventually head towards Chicago. Sometimes I would wait for him to switch the yard off 39th avenue and chase him to Bain. Fun times!

    This might peak some interest in this thread. Anybody know what it is? This was a side project I was working on at one time. Anybody wanna finish it?

    That looks to maybe be the Kenosha Metra train station?

    It's actually a scale model of the Dempster St. station in Blender. From what I've been told the Dempster Street and Kenosha stations are similar. The model itself is finished, I never got around to adding the textures.
