Poll Closed

The poll has closed with Emerald Pass winning by a landslide. However, I only put up that poll for your opinion, but I am deciding to rebuild all three!

New mesh route.

I am currently creating a fictional Tehachapi Loop route.
Here are my first few pics:

There is a train in the distance!
Where did it go?

There it is!

I know that the gray and black Texture looks disgusting. That is the default texture. I will start worrying about laying down desert textures as soon as I have finished layig down track.

Up the Tehachapi Grade 2010 part FIVE

So on, and so forth.

Harper Lake Rd., Harper Lake, CA

The signals start up by surprise!
Union Pacific #8323 comes through with what looks like empty grain cars.

The other side without a train
Little did I know that they had just started working on the tracks at the loop. No trains were allowed to come through after that train until they were done. That train was the last one that the track would see for five, six hours!

The relay case says that this crossing is still owned by the ATSF(Santa Fe)! Burlington Northern and Santa Fe combined to form BNSF.
