    Hi Roy:

    It's been awhile. Great to see that you have continued to work on this fabulous part of our Canadian railway system.

    It is great to have the Rocky Mountaineer done with such wonderful detail. I look forward to additions to the route.

    Wishing you and Ning a wonderful Christmas and prosperous New Year.

    Cheers,

    Derek

    Hi Derek,Chantal,

    Indeed it's been more than a while.
    TRS19 finally is a very good basis for all my routes from Vancouver all the way into Calgary.
    Porting and revamping them in TRS19 is a daunting task and somewhat a miracle the routes and i survived all the builds n3v launched at us "volunteers".
    It is fair to say that more than half of the time spend the last 2 years went into repair or total redo of parts smaller and bigger but the end result is worth every second spent (looking back).
    I learned a lot on top of what i already know and the fact i never end trying things even if the scene looks good makes the route and me grow in a positive way.

    Yes the Rocky Mountaineer finally looks very nice compared to my first TS12 reskin trials years back it's now fun to drive them.

    As said before 2019 and 2020 will bring a lot of goodies and huge routes for trainzers to master and enjoy just sitting on a mountain top and gaze.
    Many times while working on the routes i pause and look around and feel it looks good which means i am on the right track.

    Wishing you and Chantal also a wonderful Christmas and prosperous New Year.


    Cheers,

    Roy

    I am sure you are making these routes what I would call "realistic" or like stations scaled in, as well as industries where found, etc. I just wish there were more functioning industries to play with along the way, Seems a bit odd to run a 100 car loaded coal train over great beautiful distances and not have any mines to refill those hoppers! Thank you for the work.

    One of my favorite Trainz endeavors is driving steam and diesel up and down the Rockies on your routes, Roy. I am a particular fan of Rogers Pass. I appreciate and enjoy your work and look forward to making the entire Calgary to Vancouver in TRS 19. Many thanks!

    Those locomotives for the passenger train look a bit cartoon faced.

    here is the dilemma making it prototypical realistic and have fictional coalmines etc not serves the purpose.
    I did already add many industries where seems fit or real life but you have to wait for Vancouver section to be released to get the hoppers unloaded.
    What you can do of course is clone route if allowed and look in the surrounding mountain ranges (as the routes are huge and real mountains) and see where fit to make a coal or ore mine (or industry)and run a new track down the mountain to a loading point.
    My thought is that running those larges heavy consists over the mountains and shunting in the classification yards is a challenge by itself and lots of fun.

    Roy, I tried to contact again using the website this time as I never received a response to my e-mail. Even though I could see I was logged in, I could not send a message as I received an error saying I was not.

    Hi Roy, I hope I didn't sound critical of your work. It is absolutely outstanding! And I'm sure the Canadians must get there coal from somewhere to fill all those ore cars, LOL. The beauty of TRAINZ is it has, and always has had something for everybody (and sometimes multiple things for maybe fewer bodies). I can certainly create AI sessions on your beautiful work and sit back and watch the mountains glide by. If I want to see operating coal mines, I'm sure I can find plenty of routes for that! Thanks for your effort to enhance the TRAINZ experience.

    Hi Rik,

    no nothing wrong, its ok but other readers who not know me and my routes and that its all prototypical might get wrong impression of what have been done and achieved.

    Look unreal. Do you have a pic to compare to the real ones?

    Well, whoever made the models for TRS19 should have reskinned a better and more accurate model. Even Dave Snow's locomotive with the bell on the cab is a closer match for what is used on that train in real life.

    As for the second unit, in the picture you provided, it really doesn't look represented well by the model used in the TRS19. I'm just pointing out what I believe is a bit incorrect.
