Go Bill Go! Haha... Seriously like I said earlier, if you need a hand with some detail... I pretty much have Niles Canyon embedded into my brain, after driving 84 to avoid 680 traffic at 5:00pm.

I have the main portion of my Western Pacific yard done.  That's the Stockton tower way off in the distance next to those warehouses.  Still need to hook up the round house and redo the fueling tracks



Just a few more tracks on the left and the track in this part of this yard is done.  Then all I'll have to do is the Southern Pacific yard on the right. (that's the dark balast track)



I'm very happy with the way the switch latter's turned out. :clap:

That's looking terrific!  Wow! That's a lot of tracklaying.   :thumbsup:

Cheers,

Guess I should post some more screenies here.  I have all the main lines in at the correct location and at the correct gradients from the Stockton diamond to the base of Altamont Pass. (or close enough anyway) Both the SP and WP yards in Stockton are approximately 90% done.  Still have the ATSF yard to do.  Still have most of the industrial sidings to put in.  I've been working on putting the main roads and streets that run near the tracks and working on the ground textures in a few select areas.  It's slowly coming along.

Should be SP power and my hoppers but this will have to do.  Sugar Spur were it crosses under I205.





The I5, State Route 120 interchange in Lathrope.

I'm modeling this route for the mid to late 1970s.  EMD was still producing the SD40-2s.  GP40-2s were 1 or 2 years old.  GP40Xs were just off the assembly line along with GEs C30-7s.  Must have been a time warp to let the gevos in.

More appropriate motive power. ;)

Finally got around to hooking up some of the crossing lights. BNSF50's stand alone signals are the best thing since sliced bread. :onfire:
