Everybody loves McNuggets  ;D
Thanks for the support guys.. makes it way more fun to post and it's good to pump some life back into this forum!

Friday (today) marked the first day that the BASR brought cars to the Cumberland & Potomac interchange - a handful of buffs went out and caught the RS6 crew with the CPRY cars in tow at a few locations along the main.  The trainmaster & CMO signed off on having the two newly white-trimmed engines in charge of the train today, 550 picked to be in the lead after her paint touch up.

Here we see the RS6 throttling up underneath the Delaware Ave. bridge in Aberdeen with CPRY cars in tow.


Further along at MP 5.8, the train is seen at track speed nearing Bridgeport.


Finally, we see the train with the throttle in the corner as the 21 car train of loads screams thru Bridgeport.

Time to ruin this thread with some crappy screenshots.
A Sunbury Southern coal train crosses the Susquehanna river with a mixed bag of ratty startup power. Still working on the whole winter thing......

Thanks gents, and looking good Nikos.. 6 axle alcos =   :cheers:

Rough day for the 552 today.  Shop guys were swamped with 3 units OOS on Monday morning, and as such the heavy RS58 for that day was only able to pull the 550, 552, and 568.  Here they are shown at Bridgeport after running around the consist to head up the main towards the BWED:





The 4900 ton train proved to be too much for the combined 5K hp that the three units put out up on the 1.9% grade, and not too far past MP 21 the 552 started to overheat pretty badly, ultimately cooking one of the traction motors on the hill.  Long day for the crew as they returned back to Bridgeport to double the hill and run all the way out to the BWED with half the train.  A second crew was called in after the first had outlawed, and they didn't make it back to Aberdeen until 11 pm, 16 hours after the report time in the morning.  The 552 went right to the shop where she'll probably be spending a significant amount of time.

This is definitely one of my favorite threads now - I'm always hoping for a new post/update every time I log into the forums here!  Keep up the great modeling and creativity with the storylines!

I'm probably going to be shifting over to Ryan's style of texturing and all since it looks pretty tight, but here's a concept test preview I drummed up before seeing what Ryan did:

Ugh, I so need to start actually getting stuff to a point where I can post screenshots. They are coming very soon. I am just moving extremely slowly on the route building end of things and you guys are making me jealous of your progress. Oh well, I should have a bunch more time soon now that I am graduating. (At least until I find a job that is)

I just want to thank everyone who is enjoying this thread. When this project was first started I had no idea that it would get the kind of response that it has been getting so thanks for the support and I hope that you guys continue to enjoy the great screens that are posted. (As well as the 1 screen a year that I will probably be able to post judging by my slow pace.  :P)
