Well the first version of the Faith and Hope Railroad didn't go according to plan, a bad dat caused a permenent crash around 1950, thus rendering the original game a waste of time
I reworked the dats and added in the U25B's from the Rock knowing that they would be an utter pain with low reliability factors reflecting their rl counterparts most of whom went for scrap as they were pretty much worn out by the time the Rock finally went under.
It's so far so good and I will add in some new screen shots to show the games progress to date

Gottena little bored with the Faith and Hope so spent some time between christmas and new year working on a new map
Canyon is it's name sadly I seriously under estimated the hours involved and it took nearly twelve in all to create the landscape and it yet may be redone

Apologies to those who wanted the landscape, but I thought lets do a feature like special with three shots at the high level bridge as the trains roll by

Sadly Sir BNSF I have the most convoluted obj data folder going with stuff in it not even I know where it came from!

I am thinking about using the scenario cleaner put out by Plastik to clean it up as I have three good maps that could be used then, but I am not sure that it might damage other stuff so I will need to have a quiet word with anyone who has used it to see if it does work without causing any further issues for me, so anyone who has used the backup tool to clean a scenario of non original dats and found it works fine afterwards, could they please pm me

My European save game with US/Canadian trains. At the coal mines, can handle around 6 trains but handles 3 atm. Due to the valley being narrow an small, i have developed a kinda ofa highway interchange

My station. Steel trains can't keep up with the steel production... all i wanted is to put all stations in one, but, do you think that i should re-route steel trains in another station?

I think you should use the long station patch...That can solve the problem completely because you can make much larger stations, longer and wider that is...You can find the download and the tutorial of how to use it in my signature. Good luck on that 8)

Here are two example-screens of what you can do with it:

I never had any luck with the long station patch.

Have used the method shown in this youtube video. It works, and doesn't require any patches.

I tend to build stations 20 blocks long (occasionally longer), keep my trains to 20 blocks. That seems to work well for most circumstances.

The year is 1955, and the dawn of diesel power is in full swing. Steam power can still be seen on the PRR's Lake Division, a scenic route that winds across Lake Illawarra by way of the Stepping Stones, a chain of islands. Many tourists come from afar to view the magnificent lake that separates the mountains.

The bustling Orient City station is the largest city in the region served by the PRR. A GG1 meets a brand new FP7 at the main station and across the river an I1s Decapod brings a coal train down from the mountains, its brakes working overtime.

An Alco PA on the point of the Kembla Mountain Limited crosses a suspension bridge spanning the dramatic Cordeux Canyon. On the canyon floor below is the mainline into Culburra, and here we see 3 GP7s exiting the tunnel, bound for the ore mines of Lima Point.

.
Mount Kembla is the summit of a steep 2% climb up the mountains that overlook the lake, home to 36,000. A lengthy goods train led by two Erie-builts exits the goods yard and passes by the local passenger with a K4 4-6-2 locomotive on the point.

Located on the eastern shore of Lake Illawarra is the city of Culburra. The mainline passes through town by a tunnel and follows Banjo Creek. An Ils decapod is nearing the end of its journey as it cruises towards Stratton Steelworks, passed by two E8s on a limited stops service.[/color]
