    Hopefully, if don allows us, we can host his unreleased content.

    Steam is King.

    Topping off the ice in DaveSnow's 90+ AFC Reefers takes awhile.

    So far as I know there are no limits in this thread so long as it is steam.
    Thank you very much Norm. Glad you like it.

    Thanks also for the suggestion about the comp. I might just give it a go.

    Cheers,
    Piere.

    Thanks Norm.

    Wow, that's an impressive vista in your shots there.

    Your NKP post is a timely one as well, as I was just remembering that amazing model and decided to take it for a spin on JR's beautiful Tidewater route.

    Isn't this just the most incredible loco model in the game?




    Cheers,
    Piere.

    It's not every day you get a caboose with an internal view.

    True, it is build 2.0 (trainz 2006?)

    Great work. Out of the three YVRR locos you modeled, I would chose C. H. Grant (no. 21) as being worthy for preservation, if she made it into the 1950's.

    Unfortunately the 21 didn't make the 1940s, let alone the 50s. Reason being, she was the lightest of all the engines the YV owned for any length of time, and more importantly she was awfully slippery. Really, Charlie Grant was the only person who could get her and much of anything else up to El Portal, so when he passed, the engine was abandoned.
    In terms of eligibility, though, I'm absolutely shocked that none of the moguls are in tourist service, though I suppose 29 isn't entirely out of the picture in that regard. They were capable of pretty incredible things, as I can testify by the sheer length of the test consists I have to use to make sure 26 is performing to her 1939 power rating:

    Now in theory, I may have to drop one of these cars or risk stalling somewhere between Moss Canyon and El Portal, but she's actually running considerably below her class for this flatter section. That's some real power.

    It dawned on me (eventually) that I had the wrong era boxcars in my last set of screenies.



    Fixed that, thanks DAP.

    SP crews called their moguls "Valley Mallets" because they could pull as many cars on the flatness of the San Joaquin Valley as the earlier cab forwards could over Donner Pass. On the Clovis Branch outside Fresno, Ca trains of 30 cars were common and standard power for the branch was a 2-6-0.
