    Well, what I would like to do as a long-term project would be to make the now-torn up line that went from Indiana north through Allegan, Hopkins, Dorr, and the other small towns in the area, then have it continue north, that way I would be able to run trains around where I live.


    Did you say model railroad?

    Yes! I would love to have some West Michigan routes. The problem is that there are not many rail lines until you get up to GR and the areas surrounding. Like I said before, I wish we could make or get a 1950's route so that we could have rail lines like NYC in the rural areas. I just with I could be as lucky as one of my grandpa's, when he was a kid the NYC main line pretty much ran through his back yard.

    There's The Yupper that wawasoo is working on set in the UP. He has a thread in the Screenshots forum with many screenshots.
    His last post was September 1st. It's a great looking route.

    Well I'm over on the east side of the state in Flint, (well actually grand blanc), and I have recently been working on modeling the 1 1/2" scale White Creek Railroad over by Cedar Springs. Right now I got the trackwork about 80% done, its all laid just going through and ballasting and replacing the switches with andi06's Animated Junctions.

    The route is 7.5 actual miles, while my route in trainz is in the 40-50 mile range from Reed Lake to 3 mile Island. I'll be starting a thread here shortly with screens.

    Here's the track plan

    What sort of routes are you thinking. I live in MI, and I'd like to see the TSBY, now GLC, in TRS. Or maybe some old PM.

    If any one makes any pure Pere Marquette route, I'll name my first born after you.
