    Zoo Interlocking with it's subway tunnels are complex ... at one time the Highline connected directly to the Harrisburg tracks to/from Overbrook ... now they just take a subway tunnel and go to the River Line

    I really appreciate it guys. It's your guys stuff that inspires my want to pay it forward.

    Nice to see you CCRR. I still have a route with those letters I'd like to move.{Hint}

    This is to relieve pressure I created by opening my mouth. I get giddy.

    Yeah, the Zoo, hate this place, but it just needs a repass since I can do my own stuff now.






    I'm getting happier with how North Philly is coming, so decided to work on a destination I've yet to mention but planned to include. Being in the City it's a train ride through a forest. Ride is beautiful is to me for that reason. Putting it in game, not so much. I can't follow my cursor to N. Philly w/o needing a nap so I'm not sure if it will see further progress.



    The station is okay, but the view coming in of the Casinos are breathtaking. I want to add that. Nothing to really see along the way except this place:



    While off in the distance, that is the area I finally understood information I had already, like parking lot composition.


    It's so nice to be able to find SEPTA content on the DLS now. They were scarce 10 years ago. I wish someone would put one of each so I can stop and go ride!! 2 leftmost vehicles are not mine but are on the DLS.



    I've long known they all needed rebuilding, I just keep trying to fix em. If you've actually made it this far, this is why I've been giddy, I'm starting to build, and texture with the experience of having learned how to make just about every mistake possible, so it should look like it. I want to get back to taking my time and get everything nice and right, so maybe this will do in the meantime?

    Decades ago, I used to see a lot of freights at night on the Harrisburg line, not sure if it is an all passenger line now.

    Zoo Interlocking is one of my favorite places

    Route is looking great

    Looking at my previous post doesn't give me the chills (of horror) like it used to. Through your support, I like to show improvement. I've long been out of my depths, but this long in the ocean, I should at least be able to doggypaddle. It's been a month since I said an update was incoming, but I'm still not there. I still want things more complete. I have intentionally stopped mentioning things I'm doing by name because my stuff comes up in my own searches and I'd like to reduce that frequency. Septa actually wants to spend the highest fares in the land on something huh?

    Where things are along with the work still to be done. Unpainted for those who wish to do their own.

    This is all really great! I'm not so familiar with Philly, as my bread & butter are BART (hometown system), and the NYC Subway System; your work helps inspire me in moments of funk, as I am working on several large metropolitan/urban routes myself. Keep up the excellent work! I'm definitely "pinning" this thread so I can keep up with the progress. Maybe some friendly competition?

    Thank you so very much Acelejalde! It's routes like your BART and the ECML that I wish the NEC could be.

    I'm going to get to talking, so if it's pics u want, they're here too. Truth is, the last fun thought I had route making was, "lets start working on New Jersey". I compounded the task by adding ALL of New Jersey. That section of 30th street thru the interlocking is only 6 boards. That's going well, it's realistic to look forward to, and not that daunting and enjoyable because it's actually an area I can do from memory as I grew up here. New Jersey just isn't. I've relaxed enough to just need to re-export in smaller chunks. In the meantime came the previous posts. With little to work with, I decided to try the BBL. I have no relation other than how much sense it would've made 30 years ago. More practice for what I've done horribly in the past.



    That tickles me because it's a low poly beast. Once I sit down and understand LOD, it removes the last obstacle to these being real. The last fun thought I had building this was, "wow I can actually swap easily". Practice seen in use with these but only intended for the SL4 (like what I understand Conny's had). I wanted to see how hiding in game assets like headlights would go. I need to hide doors on the SL4 for the Patco/NJT I think. I think I'll keep the window option however. I stunk up the Blinds for "unpainted". That was something to hold for the windows.





    Tint's too dark and not window looking.

    So yeah, this and the Coach were the ones I wanted to do. I got to the question of where is the pantograph? Wealth of knowledge doesn't exist here lol. I really didn't and still don't want to do an ACS. There are a bajillion in the game already, and even in Septa versions. Then I saw an interior. Not something I've done well.








    Recently been pulling my hair out understanding running numbers. Task accomplished but not fully installed on all yet.




    That's where those parts stand right now. moved to the back burner to rebuild the things I want. Currently on the SL4 adding the full interior.

    Thank you everyone as always.

    The interior shots out of the engine were so cool. The second one had row houses in it. Lots of memories coming with all those pics. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Guys. It's becoming a debate within myself to continue posting (only). I visit everyday and the quality on these forums are well defined. When I first started posting seriously, I wanted to show the inexperience, but thought it would not take this long to produce results and hopefully inspire someone who also thinks, "omg how do they do this" that they can learn too. I can hope right? Anyways update:



    Haha six baseboards, I can't count.

    I'm working from Bridesburg westward

    I always look forward to your updates. It is a lot of work, so I hope you are remembering to have some fun with your route too.
    Nice job on the interior, by the way.

    I appreciate that Heinrich. I'm going to take a couple days off from it.

    Hello again, I'm not going to take much of your time. I lost the habit of riding other routes. It lets me see how you guys do what you do as well as being a relaxing experience. My favorite place outside of Philly is already in the game, Aberdeen MD.




    That's exactly it. Wayy more than spot on for me. Spent 8 years back n forth from this place n Philly. Adds perspective on things I spend too much time trying to recreate.

    I couldn't lay anything right without those osm tiles, I just didn't think it was possible to use more than one service in Transdem.





    I know it is now, so even less for me to butcher . I am going to work on this in Big Daddy Gatekeeper T:ANE now. Most of you have it and have few problems that I see.

    I'm always willing to send any part of anything helpful to anyone, not as only an add to your collection, but in hopes that you , person who can do this way better and faster than I can, actually do it because with just a little bit more, we can go from Philly to DC (though shown "proposed" to Baltimore). Only part that isn't on the DLS is the short stretch from Wilmington South.





    That was the last of OSM you'll see is all I'm saying. Less time spent on stuff I wouldn't care about as a fan than I do trying to make things.

    Hello again, I still have much love that you give me time to see my own errors. Thanks for the encouraging words. I always want to be the hardest critic, as you guys are with your fantastic work I use.

    Starting with the barren area I'm heading toward:



    My Plan is to use portals on the three edge platforms, with a player train on the inner platform, instead of trying to figure Septa out. Inner platform flow can remain untouched this way. Progress currently:







    Light signalling for flow. one on each end of each platform, one on each side of train in tunnel, and one on entry/exit in tunnel.
