    the year is 1990 and the Tidewater Western railroad's staff that consists of the boss, workers, management and so on was not happy to see a diesel show up on the 100 percent steam powered system and they decided to have the 1432, a brand spanking new 4-8-4 northern, take the trespassing diesel which is in Penn Central paint, to the scrapyard to be scrapped unless an offer has been made to save it just as long as it is away from the railroad's fleet of steam engines and the entire railroad all together.

    Here are some from a route I've been working on for the past few months, the UP Iroyas Subdivision across central Nebraska. Based on the UP's Overland Route mainline.

    First, a Z-train and a manifest race across the bridge over 27 Mile Creek, 27 miles east of Daypog Yard (emulating Bailey Yard). The Z-train is catching up fast, as the manifest had some wheelslip problems at first.

    Finally, the Z-train catches up.

    The race stays neck and neck as they pass Rielas Jct., where the Charaston and Southern branches off.

    Later on in the progress on the route, I was putting down rulers for signal placement, and... this happened. Took a screenshot because I found it funny.

    This is an expanded city built off the old SBCX map. I'm going for an inner city branch kind of look.

    Early morning at Reno Junction catches the rear of a UP train passing a BNSF coming off the Reno Subdivision.



    Near Reno Junction 2 UP coal trains pass in the early morning light.

    later in 1990, we see a container freight train T-176 with a Lima built, oil fired 4-8-4 2388 in the lead as it rumbles down the tracks which are in need of rail replacement due to the previous diesel operated owner not taking proper care which resulted into the big Northern and the trailing loaded flatcars swaying hence the speed restriction.

    I hate to be that guy, but I have to ask, what are those switch machines you are using? I've been looking for that kind for ages but I never knew what they're called.
    Much ado about nothing.
