So, and idea for a mix Passenger and Freight route for Train Sim World 2 would be Southern Pacific's Tehachapi Pass, which runs between the Central Valley town of Bakersfield, California, to the desert town of Mojave, with a route length of about 68 miles between Stations (about 55 direct miles). The best era for this route, due to the lack of Steam Trains, would best be between 1960 and 1971, the later years of passenger service over the line (As SP would ban passenger trains from the line after 1971, which is still upheld by the Union Pacific, aside from Coast Starlight detours) The line itself sees a mix of flat high speed running in both the valley and the desert, as well as steep mountain grades thru the Tehachapi Mountains. Snow is also a possibility in the higher elevations (But not to the extend as Donner Pass). The highlight of the route would obviously be the very well known Tehachapi Loop. -Bakersfield Yard -Sandcut -Caliente -Tehachapi Loop -Tehachapi -Monolith Mojave Passenger Service So for passenger services there would be 2 trains that can run the route for the era. The San Joaquin Daylight, which ran between Oakland and LA, and its overnight counterpart, The Owl. At the time this is set in, there were 3 stops on the proposed route, these being in Bakersfield, Tehachapi, and Mojave. The majority of equipment at this time was painted into the simpler Red and Stainless Steel "Sunset Limited" scheme aside from some head end cars, which were solid grey. As far as power goes, there are a few candidates for this job... -EMD F7A/B -EMD GP9 EMD SDP45 Freight Service With this being one of Southern Pacific 2 major north-south routes in California, the line would of most likely seen a majority of freight handled by the railroads at the time. Both Mojave and Bakersfield maintains large freight yards, so yard switching is also possible for the route, the only think I don't have any knowledge on is any local services on the line except maybe between Edison and Bakersfield (I don't know when that cement plant near Tehachapi was built). Motive Power for the route could be the following... -EMD SD9 (1954) -EMD SD35 (1963) -EMD SD40 (1966) -GE U30C (1968) In addition,switching power could be eitrher any of EMDs or ALCOs switchers Uses with Scenario and Livery Editor With the addition of the Livery Editor and Scenario maker, it would be possible to also add Santa Fe Trains to the route for ones own personal use, as the Santa Fe had trackage rights with the SP, as the SP didn't want the ATSF to build their own line thru the pass. Off the rails mode would allow use to simulate more modern operations as well with the UP equipment coming with the Cane Creek branch line.
