Thread: Coming soon - UMR2019

    Thumbs up You hit another one out of the park with your new Route.

    All assets are on the DLS, with the two usual exceptions found at Jointedrail.com freeware section. (Weathered Container Pack, and TOFC Pack).

    There is also another known issue with the signalling. For whatever reason, TRS19 and the signals I've used don't like each other too much. Most of the signals work fine, but some will not show the correct aspects. Trains should still be able to pass through them, albeit a little slower than normal in a few places.

    Hope you enjoy!
    I downloaded your updated 2019 Version, and it is really nice with the adjustments for TRS-19, however, I think since I have the 2018 one, I'll keep that for a while longer too.....Great Route, they run great, and this one had one missing Asset in it. Which to me, is nothing to worry about.

    These Routes are keepers, and sure appreciate all u did on the newest update.......I'm excited to try out all the new Commodities......

    Coal may be on the decline, however there are plenty of coal trains traveling through Memphis every day going somewhere. Memphis is one of only three cities in the US served by all the class I railroads, including Amtrak, so we get to see a great variety of stuff being hauled in all shapes and forms. All these railroads have major yards in Memphis including the CN.

    The UMR2019 is a great route and the great challenge with it is to add lots more traffic on the line. That’s the only way the double tracking will pay off for management.

    Here is a download for the brown track.

    To get the rail texture, place the rail.tga from the HM brown mesh library

    That's interesting - I've always tried to keep a height level of +10 for bridges, which allows double stacks through. If you could let me know which ones I've messed up, I'll get right on fixing them. Thx

    -edit - Oh boy, yeah I see what you mean. It's some of the truss-style bridges I've selected. Well, back to work....haha

    There is still lots of coal to be hauled, to both of the ports at Gladston port and Joliet, as well as the powerstation at Eccles, for anyone who wants a bit of a longer haul. Have you found the other industries that have been mothballed Paul? BTW - you may want to re-download it, as a bunch of changes have been made since you tested it out for me. Thanks again for that!

    Looks to me you could run a hundred coal trains into Joliet and not fill it up. I used to work near a coal pier in Baltimore it allways had a number of trains waiting to get unloaded, I'd says Joliet is very realistic.

    Great work

    Yes, I suppose I should have been more specific, some trusses are fine and others have problems with height/width. It might be amusing to only upgrade some routes forcing oversize trains to follow specific routes.

    Got just about all of those crappy truss bridges replaced. Thanks for pointing that out! I never noticed that problem.

    I tend to notice clearance problems,









    The problematic truss bridges are common on a lot of routes.

    I'm drooling. I was a fan of UMR18 in T:ANE. I Just reinstalled TRS19 and I am slowly getting it up and running. I can't wait to try UMR19, as soon as all this DLC downloads...

    Is anyone else having issues with some missing or glitchy ground textures around Milton? (pic below)

    Otherwise, this is a fantastic route! It has very quickly become one of my favorites, if not my #1 favorite. Great, fantastic, amazing work.

    I'm not seeing that. I scanned the area around Milton for several miles in all directions and did not see that at all. You might try identifying the texture on UMR18 and then see if you have it installed in TRS19?
