Took me a while to figure that one out. Still rather amusing.

Beat me to it. Hell, they'd replace 1 30 second ad with 2 20 second ads if they had the chance...

Lose the TV set. It's a simple solution; it just requires a bit of nerve.

[OTTD]

Picture 1

It's Semptember of 1922, and though in the mountains, the snow is beginning to creep down towards the valley floors, on the plains, it couldn't be more different.

Harvest is here.

Two classmates (Mountain 2-8-4s) pass while crossing The Caribou river as it flows into the Golden river at place usually know as "The River Junction" for obvious reasons. One of the locos is hauling a medium sized Livestock train, while the other is carrying the products of the bull's slaughter; Food. Masses of it in a huge train with which the loco is struggling.

Both trains are very well paying services.


Picture 2

About a month and a half later, and miles away from our previous location, a Mountain 2-8-4 on long distance coal dutes crosses the valley over one of the magnificent viaducts, while a small Consolidation 2-8-0 hauled passenger train ambles along merrily on the low density passenger line which unlike the highe line, does not travel much further into the mountains.

US Set FTW! Yee-haww!!!
You see them a million times, but long US Set trains are just :shock:
I have still not actually played a single US Set game where I used long trains to take advantage of the larger maps...I hope to change that, but I've got other games to play.

And you need the Combined North American Signals set. :P

Sorry to drag the thread OT, but I've had no luck getting this signal set to work under TTDPatch.

I'm not sure if there is something that I am missing, perhaps there is an outdated version I am using?

The "newest" one is the one on the US Set website, yes?

Yep, the US set totally rocks, and the long trains DO look awesome, but then, the trains do in general.

And as for the signals? I'm too lazy to bother with that right now. :)

Ah well.

[Oppurtunity That could noT be misseD]

In mid 1925, double headed Monutain 2-8-4s work these truely gigantic coal trains, while Mikado 2-8-2s bank.

It's now early 1926, and two such trains pass on the loop upwards which helps the trains gain height quickly in this icy area. Even with a payload of 2,000 tons, and a total weight of around 4,500 tons, these trains work the slopes with ease. Expected really, as there's 11,500 horsepower and 77 tons of tractive effort per train.

side note: The trains are not this big for the screenshot only, they are this big to reduce the number needed.

I actually had a bit of difficulty making heads and tails of those trains. Hehe, get it? :P

:shock: The length of those trains is...well there massively long...

By the way, which engine do you use to haul those coal trains in the most resent screen shot?

Once again, the train lengths are amazing...
