    Default Erie Lackawanna Mahoning Division route

    Hi all! im getting to the point with this route that so much is done that its impossible to quit, being able to see the daylight at the end of the tunnel if you will. ive been working on this on and off for about a year, and have custom signals, buildings and more
    its about 100 miles of route but the main line on the Second district is 78 miles long.
    so here is the info a lot of people have been asking for, It is in Trainz 19, because i like the look and the features of the game.
    the Era is Early to Mid 70's
    HERE is a route map i have made to show the exact mileage and line my route consists of. click the highlighted text for the line.
    Below is the Elevation Profile of the route from beginning to end


    here is the line map. again click the link above for a more in depth view.


    and here is my actual route, its way longer than i want it to be, but it will get trimmed down

    here are some shots from the last couple days

    How come Trainz don't have lumpy, bumpy, wiggly track, like the real thing ?

    I concur with the others. This is a spectacular route and the screenshots really show off your attention to detail. It will be a real kick to run consists on this. [Note to self - beef up EL equipment and PC equipment.]

    Thanks so much for your hard work and research.

    Your work just blows me off this planet and to Mars of how well of a job and detail you do. Every time I see your shots, I know exactly who it's from without seeing the name. Not just being EL, but the quality and detail that it presents.

    Maybe a question I missed , is this planning to be personal freeware release, or part of JR Payware ?

    Cannot wait either way!

    thank you all for the kind words!
    but first answers.
    Yes it will be payware at JR
    let me to start the "route tour" at the biggest and baddest yard on the route, Meadville PA. I grew up here, seeing trains from CR to NS to WNYP, today its only a measly 6 track yard, the yard tower still is there, been in it and looked around. pretty neat.
    Meadville yard featured Car shops, which Conrail used as their primary Cars hops for Years until moving the operations to Holidaysburg. in the mid 90's. my grandpa worked there for years, from EL to CR.
    it also had Engine facilities. which still stands and is used by the city's water department as storage.




    Now for Real life locations



    and today

    Glad you are doing the route in it's ERIE RR hey day … As with Conway, Pitcairn, CP Conpit, Johnstown, Cresson, Altoona, Holidaysburg, Huntingdon, Lewistown, Marysville, Harrisburg, Enola … all these places, as well as the entire now 2 tracked NS Line, are nothing what they looked like in the good ol' days
