    After a Trip to Iloilo and Nueva Ecija last week, I am back home in Rizal Province. I had to rest until Today. I'm back again to the DTG Forum and Content Dev. Area. Now the building of the route is still suspended, to give way to video editing and possible FSX:SE purchase on steam, but rolling stock test runs will continue starting tomorrow.

    Note that those are waiting on the route construction progress, the project in not Cancelled or Scrapped. It was Suspended after Iloilo Incident.

    Important Announcement
    • The route building will continue starting 27 April 2020 after 2.5 months suspension.
    • The following will continue: PNR Bicol Express Segment, PNR NSCR (Until Malolos Segment, except Valenzuela Depot)*
    • All Phase 2 segments off-limits to other trains except BR423 S-Bahn Rhein-Main and TSG BR425 Expert-line (Steam Version), except Magallanes and Calamba segment.
    • One of the posts in this route development (Screenshots) is linked to a .pdf. I'll edit this post after linked.
    • The SRTM data will start at Bulacan and Quezon Province segment of the route. (Will be tested before construction continues, and make a backup for this route)
    • I will post anytime about mixing different signalling systems (AWS to TVM430 to PZB, AWS to PZB, AWS to LZB to PZB and Vice-Versa) in General Discussion. Has to be tested on another route. Mixing U-Bahn signals and UK LED signals won't work, so UK LED Signals used on NCR area.
    • Plans on extending the route into long haul segment (Tarlac to Cagayan, Batangas Branch and Legaspi to Matnog) will be studied.
    • Once conditions became normal (Normal Transportation operations) after health crisis, I will conduct actual photo of the line and locations, and permission from PNR and DOTr-Philippines to create the other segments, not just this route.
    • Driving Hint: ICE-TD: Soon once questions about mixing signalling systems answered.
    • This route (Including Phase 3 segment of this project) Should not be used in any malicious purposes such as fake news (link to article and violation of local laws in Philippines) The Phase 3 of this project is only a Suggestion plan. Does not reflect to actual project, plan or construction.
    • For collaboration, Wait until the first file is uploaded to the "Resources" section or into the Reporting thread.

    This was made in Ipad, make edits in the thread by later.

    Route bulding log: TBA
