    Post Any Mega Routes?

    I'm actually no longer interested in short routes and layouts (except Kickstarter Country in T:ANE, Wassen-Gotthard from oliver-trainz.ch, and Modellbahn04 SC) and I'm getting into mega routes (both real & fictional) besides the T:ANE built-ins (e.g. 70s ECML). My main preferences for Trainz content are mostly anything from the US (mainly modern, some 50s), Germany (mainly 70s-present), and the UK (mainly 80s-present). My other preferences are Canadian (modern), Swiss, Austrian, Italian, Australian (modern), Kiwi/NZ, Japanese (Shinkansen only), Russian, and Chinese.


    Mega Routes I only know so far are:
    1. "WM & B&O Mega Route" (by jrfolco)
    2. "Cologne Hbf to Dortmund Hbf" (John514) - WIP
    3. full Northeast Corridor (Flusi737) - Cancelled due to payware content mixed in it
    4. NS Pittsburgh Sub (scratchy) - WIP
    5. PRR Horseshore Curve Route (cascaderailroad) - WIP
    6. BNSF Clovis Sub (Dermmy)
    7. Routes from Pro Train Perfect 2 (Blue Sky Interactive) - payware
    8. Electro Island routes - (pagroove)
    9. Schwäninger Land - (fictional modern German route by trainzmultiplayer.de) - WIP - Recently added 4/23/2016
    10. Rhine Valley - (modern German route by Join Together Trainz/JTG) - WIP - Recently added 4/23/2016

    Regular or "Close to mega" routes I know are:
    6. NS Reading Line
    7. NEC Wilmington - Philadelphia (Trainz 12 built-in) - No longer interested in this version.
    8. Marias Pass X (HP Trainz) - payware
    9. Norfolk and Western - Appalachian Coal (Trainz 12 built-in)
    10. Ostalgie II and Ostalgie II (Epoch V)
    11. "Bad Schandau - Decin" (HP Trainz, Trainz 2007-2010 built in) - I had a short lived interest in Czech trains, but I'm more into "all-German" routes
    12. UMR 2015
    13. NS Route (from RRMods)
    14. NS Chicago Line (from Trainz NS Railz)
    15. Southern China (Trainz 12 built-in)
    16. Balezino - Motsi (Trainz 12 built-in)
    17. Midshire Mainline
    18. Rosworth Vale (Trainz 2006-Trainz 2010 built-in)
    19. West Coastal
    20. Sherman Hill - (TrainzItalia)

    So does anyone know any other mega routes out there? I honestly don't care what era or region the routes are in, so feel free to mention any of them here and I'll take a look.

    There is my Port Ogden & Northern for TS12 that may work in T:ANE (I just have not got round to checking it yet).

    It's fictitious, extensive with a wide variety of scenery.

    Actually, I could say exactly the same about IndustRail.

    I actually have TS2010 with that as a built-in route, but I'm no longer interested in it.

    I do like it, but I'm generally more into modern US east coast routes.

    I've seen that one before, but I found some similar freeware versions which are all called, "MBC" by doug56 which I can find here. - http://www.doug56.net/MBC/

    I do like Canadian Pacific, but I just don't like Hunter Harrison running it, especially with his evil plans of taking over NS.

    Don't forget Montana Rail Link 12 MP. This is an updated route originally from Trainz Pro Routes.

    I forgot to mention that since I'm a fan of the MRL. Thanks!

    Thanks, but I prefer mostly mainline based routes actually.

    I'm not sure either because I haven't downloaded it for ages.

    You might try the Cumberland to Harpers Ferry route. It's not as large as the WM & B&O Mega Route. It has app. 360 miles of mainline track. I'm presently working on the Harpers Ferry to Baltimore route, which I plan to merge with the Cumberland to Harpers Ferry toward the end of this year. I'm planning to call it the Baltimore to Cumberland Mega Route. Information on both routes is on my web site.

    Thanks!

    I also just found the T:ANE version of your Cumberland to Connellsville route and I'm downloading both of them right now!
