So I was researching the famed Sunset Route over Beaumont Hill for a proposal for TS2020 (https://forums.dovetailgames.com/th...west-colton-niland-calexico-branchline.20654/). I did notice that the run from the West Colton Yard to the top of the hill is only 25 miles. So I figured this would be a decent proposal for TSW as well. So I think if this route was to be made for TSW, it would run from West Colton Yard, to Palm Springs. Which would make the route roughly 55 miles. I also think this route should be set in the Modern Era, so Union Pacific Would be featured on the route. The western end of the route would feature the West Colton Yard one of the largest railyards on the West Coast, which features a large classification yard, rail car repair facility, and loco shop. GATX also has a small shop on the East side of the yard. Shortly pass the yard is where the Palmdale Cutoff connects to the Sunset route, followed shortly by Colton Crossing, though the UP and BNSF tracks have since been separated at the crossing. The route continues east eventually starting the climb thru San Timoteo Canyon,thru the town of El Casco, up to appx 2,600ft at the town of Beaumont. Past Beaumont the route starts downgrade, thru the towns of Banning, Owl, Cabazon, towards Palm Springs. UP runs a rock train from a quarry owned by Roberson's Ready Mix from Cabazon to Gardena California. This train is interesting, as it only has 2 locomotives, one at each end, so the locomotives doesn't have to run around or turn the train at either end. Palm Springs is home to the only Amtrak stop for the Sunset Limited/Texas Eagle on this route between Ontario and Yuma. Locomotives The locomotives for this route would be pretty much what is common these days in modern railroading. Evos (ES44,ET44) SD70ACe (ACe,AH,ACe-T4) (Could also throw in the SP Heritage unit too.) SD40-2/SD40N GP40-2/GP60 (Patched SP/SSW or standard UP) Rolling Stock Rolling Stock itself would be the common railcars of today which would include.... Boxcars -50ft -60ft High Cube Hoppers -2 Bay Covered -3/4 Bay Covered Tank Cars -13,000 -23,000 -33,000 Intermodel -57' Spine Cars -53' Well Cars (Single & 3 Unit) -40' Well Cars (Single & 5 Unit) Auto Racks Centerbeam Flatcars Bulkhead Flatcars Reefer Unit (ARMN) The only special railcar that should be included for this route would be the Roberson Ready Mix (RRMX) rock cars for the quarry.
