The Colquitt Industrial Complex served two different companies which sprung upon the line during WWII and over the years would be a valuable customer to the Eastmont Northern Railroad and would contribute to filling the Manningham Yard up with the numerous trains that would pick up cargo and other goods from the industry site. Several trains a day would be seen entering and exiting the complex and it was at its peak during WWII when numerous trains would be seen entering the yard during the night, midnight and early morning hours to keep pace with the demands for war supplies. After the wars end, traffic simmered down a tad bit but multiple trains still served the industries over the course of the day. However during the 1970s business would begin on a decline and it would reduce to just two trips a week to the industry. It was the last industry to survive and serve the Eastmont Northern Railroad as many other companies would close its doors, surrender themselves to the trucking business or move overseas. On August 28, 1984 the last local would make its pickup at the Colquitt Industrial Complex and another valuable money making local freight service operation to serve customers along the Manningham Subdivision, which happened to be the last, was gone.

That's not it at all.  I think it's coming along nicely.  I just don't comment all the time.  Out of curiosity what grass spline and ground texture are you using?

Yes, another river; this one is named the Joryel River.

I've reached 120 out of 200 baseboards that'll be covered between Manningham and Moretti. Which means, 120 down and 80 more left to go. I've got one 40 baseboard siding, a 36 baseboard single track line and then two more baseboards of double track railroading before reaching the city. Plus a 12 baseboard branch line that has since been abandoned to a small town off of the mainline.

3/5 of my route done, which is roughly 60%.

Well it needs work though. Mostly the ATLS systems and a few other things. It seems that in the process that when you are constantly changing and overwriting it gets reset to default and the crossings as a result don't work in game. That's the most annoying part about it.

When you save it save the session along with the route.  That is were all the info for the crossings is kept.  I've made the same mistake myself and it causes an incredible amount of unnecessary grief.

If all goes well, then this route should be completed and released before the new version of Trainz is released.

It's coming along good. I'm now 4/5 done with the route. 160 down, 40 to go including a branch line to an abandoned industry in a small town. Officially 80 percent complete.
