    That is, dare I say, an interesting substitute for the PRR GP9.
    Thanks, It was all I had at the time mate, I don't think it looks too out of place but it will be changed eventually.

    Just one question, how far West are you planning on going?

    Just have to wait and see, I want to get Altoona to Gallitzen 90% done before I go on further.

    Seriously, I like what you have wrought so far, but it's a shame you can't find a better fence to use at such a focal point for screenshots...
    I've changed the fence to Gfishers, a much needed improvement.

    They are really nice models, so I might just have to make an exception to the modern day theme for a couple of shots...

    I can completely agree with that. The colors work out perfectly.

    Gives dignity to an otherwise undignified loco.

    Um, Magicland also has some PRR passenger cars on the DLS and his website...

    Are there any good streamlined PRR passenger cars aside from Magicland's built in ones?

    Pennsylvania suffered severe irreparable erosion due to total clearcutting and strip mining ... the forests in Pa are stunted forever and most trees are small, scrubby, stickerbush, dilllweed, straggly, and resemble Trainz Gum Trees. Most of the beautiful Trainz trees, do not exist in the Altoona Johnstown area any longer.

    The "Curve" cliff is ignious rock like Granite, and Gray/Red Shale is all over in cuts.

    Iceman2117 StoneShed is at the "Curve", Alto Tower Renameable, UN Tower Boarded Up, PRR Cabin Tower, and Creston Tower, BNCR Cabin Tall, all fit in well.

    Tracks (outermost) 4 & 3 are generally WB on the "Curve" ... track 2 has been torn out and is a central gravel MOW access trail, and Track 1 is the Pittsburgh Track for Eastbounds from Pittsburgh.

    The Grade Separation at Tunnelhill-Bridge over the (Muleshoe Secondary trackage which is also is torn up) is not tree lined and pristine, as it is gravel, rocky, and weed strewn.

    The fence around the PRR K4 and GP has always been 8 foot tall, silver chain link cyclone fence, topped with barbed wire, and the "Curve" fence has always been black wrought iron pointy spiked topped ... now it is flimsy aluminium spiked fence @ 5 foot tall.

    The PRR Signals are lower in height http://i525.photobucket.com/albums/c...ilroad/310.jpg

    If you need information on the Cresson Flyover (also torn out) I will send it to you. http://i525.photobucket.com/albums/c...sonFlyover.jpg

    Thanks I'll be sure to check that out. The curve would be the most awesome spot to live near, it would be great just going down there every now and then.
