    Cool SP working in the high mountains.........Awesome to look at......

    Your Scenery looks out of this world realistic, and then you have SP livery working the lines........

    I grew up around SP yards and Union Pacific, both of which I like, but I think SP is closure to the heart.......I just had a real fun time day dreaming, looking at your towering Snow Capped Mountains. Keep up the good work, it really shows in the pictures...........

    Horace,
    Wonderful screen shots. I'm with Blue, it's just fun to look at the scenery and imagine that I'm there. Your details are very immersive and make the scenes believable.

    Great job!

    Default The BC&SJ mainline reaches 105 miles

    Ride along for a blitz tour of the entire 105 mile BC&SJ mainline in only 9 minutes!

    You'd better fasten your seat belts before hitting play...

    Horace,
    Well, that was a rush! The train is going to need more dilythium crystals after that Trek. What a cool way to show of the route. Very nicely done.

    How fast will my train run? Don’t know. Haven’t figured out how to get my warp drive to make steam.

    Default The Daylight in Upper Roberts Creek

    If you've been following this blog you may recall the several months ago I suffered a database corruption that wiped out the finished scenery in the Upper Roberts Creek area (I was able to recover the roughed-in scenery).

    Well, I'm finally getting around to re-finishing the Upper Roberts Creek scenery. The good news is I may have gotten better at finished terra-forming since the previous (actually the 3rd) version of scenery in these parts of the mountain. So, I thought I'd tell Hillmovers Construction to take a break for a while and fly in the railroad's photographer and a brightly colored passenger train for him to shoot. Here (in no particular order) are the results.

    (1) Approaching tunnel 5




    (2) Wouldn't you like to be sitting in that parlour car?




    (3) PBR textures galore!




    (4) I bet the locomotive's chuff would echo for minutes in this canyon!




    (5) Crossing a fill. The valley in the background goes on for quite a way.




    (6) The same fill from a different direction.




    (7) Did I mention there are a plethora of water falls in Upper Roberts Creek?




    (8) Bending around a curve while snow-capped peaks watch




    Hope you approve...

    I wasn't really gone. I've been working on route clean up (signals / grade crossings didn't work, industries without industry tracks, floating roads/tracks, etc.) and only just got started on reconstructing the Roberts Creek scenery that got lost in the database corruption of a few months ago.

    Join date Dec 2018, your skills surpassed mine long ago I was driving my motorcycle at 100 mph, and you passed by me so bloomin' fast, you must have been doing a buck-three-eighty ! You were going so fast, that I thought I was stopped, so I got off my bike, and ended up wiping out !
