    Dave --

    I agree. JointedRail should have used SpeedTrees. Billboard tress are just so TRS2004.

    Despite this it looks so impressive that I've ordered it.

    Fair comments you raise, and I'd be interested to see what the route looks like after you swap them out. It's similar to Coal Country in that it uses Speedtrees up close for detail and billboards for distant fill. I did try to use entirely STs at first but they don't have the density or colour I was looking for.

    You can see the mix here

    I think the main reason why they're not so many speedtrees is because it will lag the route too much

    Disagree, assuming, of course, that you use a limited variety of SpeedTrees.

    One advantage of SpeedTrees is that they will vary in height -- plant the same type of SpeedTree in close proximity to each other and you will find that their height will vary. Some will be short, others tall, some medium. This gives a much more pleasing effect than identical bill board trees.

    As for the fame rate hit. I've never noticed it when substituting SpeedTress for billboards.

    Thankyou Vals_Loeder, I hope you enjoy it

    Sorry? The GMD 1 that has been skinned for the route is complete, if you want you can contact the modeler. SMAN1234

    On another note, passenger cars have been added to the roster! A session will be provided running a majority of the route

    Does this "new" BW9 have a better engine sound than the "old" ones?

    Not a carterpillar or bulldozer sound, but a more real loco sound?

    Small re-powered switching engines typically don't use a traditional locomotive prime mover. Railserve's Leaf rebuilds used either one or two 550 HP Detroit Diesel engines. They basically sound like semi.

    I'm curious what kind of beefy real locomotive engine you think would fit underneath the hoods of a BW9, leaving room for the radiators, fans, generators, compressors, electrical equipment, and everything else
