    CSX Q302 presses east past Prince WV bound towards Richmond and Rocky Mount. Date this back to the early 2010s.

    But anyways, here's 2 to keep it back on track...



    Before the WC takeover we see 2 FRV GP9's switching out some centerbeam cars





    Up in Pembine Wisconsin, after the WC takeover, we see 2 ex-FRV GP9's leading the local back to Gladstone from Goodman Wi, the ELS has arrived at the depot and will wait here till the WC clears before shuffling their train together to take back south to Green Bay, Wi.

    I wonder how you were able to fix that old container commodity to work in TRS19 so it doesn't end up replacing most of the containers with one texture when loaded?

    SLRR E29A / E25D / E47D / E29B, all ex-MILW GE Motors, glide southbound towards Clear Creek, WV, seen here near Bentree, WV on April 23rd, 1972. It's the first fully electrified train on the railroad, having undergone extensive rebuilding over the past two years. Their rebuilding was a questionable decision, seeing as the motors were all very worn out by the end of their service life on the Milwaukee in 1970, but with no modern electric to suite the needs of the Silver Lines, they went for something a little older. So far, it's proving itself worthwhile, but only time will tell for these 1915 motors. Echoes of the PRR heritage on the West Virginian division are seen in its signaling.



    Two years later, the complete EF-5 E29ACDB set gets a helping hand from some of the new SD40-2s that arrived just last year. Next year, E29ACDB and her 35 remaining sister Boxcabs will all be renumbered from E1 to E13 and re-compiled into permanent groups to make up their EF-1 to EF-5 class ratings.


    Six years earlier, on May 19th, 1968, the first inspection/MOW train arrives in Colcord, WV, near the southern end of the division. The sale of the 230 mile rail line was closed just the day before with the Penn Central, although the deal actually began under the Pennsy. Colcord was the site of a small yard and a coal mine, although the mine closed in 1959 due to a slew of accidents, including a number of collapses in the underground mineshafts. The yard has acted as car storage ever since, and the remaining coal hoppers were written off by the PRR and subsequent PC as scrap, and were included in the sale of the line. Nearly all will be scrapped in the coming months.


    Cheers,
    SM

    I'm always happy to see more of the Silver Lines RR Leo. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, normhart! It's a fun project to use as my creative outlet for this sort of thing. I've spent untold hours during this corona-quarantine-thing doing up rosters, updating skins, and just the other day I cranked out a 19 page backstory for the entire electrified line. Just trying to find that happy balance between realistic and fantasy, where in my little monochrome-based world (lol) I can keep and play with the things that you just can't do in real life anymore. It's a good time!

    Silver Lines was pretty hungry for good motive power in the 60s, picking up and trying just about any motive power it could find. It was hard to live up to steam, where what one locomotive could pull now took sometimes three or four. GP30s were a 1963 addition to the roster and were well received, but the railroad still needed just plain more. The SLRR owned 25 GP30s, which were rebuilt between 1987 and 1988. In the late 90s and early 2000s, 7 of them were lost to the scrappers torch, though the remaining units still see some use today.

    Here, we find a lengthy lashup of a bunch of classic EMDs heading upgrade in southeastern Ohio somewhere around 1967.

    It is 1990, and this old 1922 Baldwin Built 2-8-2 was switching cuts of cars when a yard switch was not lined up correctly which resulted in the engine's derailment but, it was re-railed along with the some cars that also derailed, thankfully, this was a slow speed one, no damage was done and work resumes on making up the coal train for loading and for the mainline, lets just hope that no more accidents such as the one that involved the antique steam locomotive never happens again, that is the kind of things that makes the railroad management absolutely furious.

    Really like the way the trees look, and are sparsely used, and I suppose any areas distant 2 miles are merely painted on textures, and are not 19 billion actual trees
    The expression: "Avoiding it like it is the Plague" just doesn't make any sense. Humans just don't do that very well.

    A CSX train passes through Iris coal shuttling loads to Lehigh, FL with carload for various spots on the Homestead Sub.



    A few hours later, FEC 202 blasts off towards Hialeah. They had a "slow order" so I beat them to Little River Wye.





    It's pretty cool that my signals cast shadows filtered by the capabilities of the TANE engine, creating a sick dapple effect on the trains when they pass. However, several textures and assets were left out by the mass importation so some huge changes are coming.
