The Hemingway General Goods Factory was built in the 1920s and opened in 1926. Although it would struggle during the great depression of the 1930s, business boomed in the 1940s during the Second World War and immediately following the war with the rise of the Cold War with the U.S.S.R. By the 1960s the factory had began to fall into a decline and in 1978 it would file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and would officially go out of business in 1980. It would have a major impact on freight service on the line as traffic dropped by 56 percent on the Hemingway Branch Line.

The Hemingway Truck and Rail Consolidated Company opened for business in 1916 and Eastmont Northern built the branch line to serve the line and would bring a considerable amount of traffic on the branch line as World War One would shortly followed and supplies would be needed for the efforts overseas. Business would remain steady until the stock market crash of 1929 and would suffer shortly thereafter and would file for Chapter Seven Bankruptcy and would be reformed and placed under new management and would rebound in the 1940s because of the war and took off with the addition of trucking service to the industry. The industry peaked during the 1950s and most of the 1960s until business declined and the parent company decided to outsource local town plants overseas and in 1982 the plant was shut down and it led to the abandonment of the line.

The Hemingway Branch Line was constructed in the Spring of 1916 and it's sole purpose was to serve the Hemingway Consolidated Facility and would also serve the General Factory Industry beginning in 1926. Over the next five decades it would be packed with trains on a daily basis picking up and dropping off goods. In the 1970s the line would be dramatically reduced in usage and importance with the decline of the two industries that were the sole reason for it's existence and with the closure of the Hemingway General Factory in 1980 traffic would immediately drop to just a trickle and in 1982, the Hemingway Consolidated Truck and Rail Facility would close and all the traffic would go away completely and the line would be closed for good shortly thereafter.

More screenshots of the route. I've now completed 180 baseboards of the needed 200 to get to my next city, which is Moretti. So that makes it 90 percent complete. Can't believe that I've done 9/10 of the route. Now it's on to the home stretch.

The route is finished!!!! Just a few more baseboards and I can close the map out with portals. It took me a little over five months to do this. I had a goal which was to release it before the next version of Trainz comes out which will be December for me. It was trying at times and mentally taxing and I procrastinated for much of the time and I could've and should've been done sooner but you know what they say, better late than never. I can honestly say that this is a route worth sharing with the Trainz Community and arguably my best work of art to date. I don't know my future as a fictional route builder or Trainzer in general, but whatever happens next, at least I can say I gave it my all and should I go out, it'll be on top.
