GN Train 6 "Cascadian": A New Scenario for Stevens Pass


I have just published a new three-part scenario (total playtime of approximately 240 minutes) that lets you take control of GN's daily Seattle-Spokane all-stops passenger train across Stevens Pass. The train uses two EMD F7A units to pull up to seven cars and runs on a tight schedule.

The scenarios uses my previously released Stevens Pass Backdating kit!

Amazing Vegetation Update for the RWA Route

Wayne Campbell has recently published a vegetation and texturing update for the RailworksAmerica "Lakeside Route" (Riverside, Waterton & Atlantic -- RW&A).

This update to the route includes an extensive overhaul of the distant and lineside vegetation and improved terrain texturing for the whole route. And it looks remarkably good.

You can download the update in the RailworksAmerica file library.

The update requires only the original Lakeside route to be installed, which you can also get at the RailworksAmerica website.

I'm attaching several screenshots below... but really, you should see it with your own eyes, on your own screen.

Central Vermont

A fantastic new route has been released at RailworksAmerica: the Central Vermont Champlain Division by Rick Kfoury.

From the author's route description: "The Central Vermont Champlain Division is a fictional route set around Lake Champlain in Northwestern Vermont and up-state New York in the year 1960. The time period of the route is adjustable from the early 1950s to the late 1960s, and steam facilities are included. The CV was one of the last American railroads to use steam."

This scenic and well-made route is a gem for steam and 1st generation diesel era fans.

Some screenshots that I took during my first run:

Stevens Pass Backdating Kit


I have just released a little backdating kit for the Stevens Pass Route DLC.

What this does is add depots, station signs, train order signals, platform clutter and station markers to the route. This was all done in the scenario editor only, so the installed route remains completely unchanged.

You need a bit of knowledge of the inner workings of the scenarios, crucially their folder structure, and of course you must know how to build and edit your own scenarios if you want to use this.

Detailed instructions are available in the manual.

You can download the backdating kit on my website.

Below are a few screenshots of how it looks like in-game.

This scenario puts you in charge of the ATSF's express passenger service from Los Angeles to San Diego, the 'San Diegan'. Train 72 leaves LAUPT in the morning. The scenario has been split in two parts, each about 90 minutes long. You'll see a lot of AI action, especially in and around L.A.
