    @deadpoolmx55: 1:1 scale. Well, I must say, that's incredible. I don't even know how to do 1:1 myself, so to see that is really impressive. Cheers to you, and a cup of diesel fuel for your EL locos on the house!

    Interesting mix of Searchlights and PRR PL on the signal brackets. Did that combo appear anywhere else on the EL or did that only exist at this junction? I saw a gantry on another part of the EL in Akron with Searchlights facing one direction and a B&O CPL on the other at a diagonal angle in a prototype photo.

    the PRR E&P and chautauqua branch runs parallel to the EL main, those are actually over those lines

    Absolutely amazing. My son is drooling and doesn't have the patience apparently (though I love his work). I'm patiently building my 50 miles. Just curious how many baseboards wide on average you have from the main. I love the scenery in the foreground, but the background looks just as amazing.

    Thank-You. Might have to purchase for my son when it's done.

    Holy moly, well that map screenshot confirms this should be an excellent route to run a mixture of PC/EL/early-Conrail era operations. I can already envision many consist ideas.

    Very nice work indeed Justin.

    Deadpoolmx55,
    After seeing all the excellent screen shots of the route, it was especially nice to see the route in action. The video is really cool. Thanks for posting.

    Just curious, did you make this route using TransDEM? If so what was your grid width on your DEMs? My route modules now are rather...bad, in terms of terrain, so I'm curious if you did a lot of touch-ups or if your DEMs were just really accurate. I'm making the Lackawanna Cutoff along with the other long-gone NJ railroads and the terrain detail from just the DEMs leaves a lot to be desired.
