Hello there! Now I know there are so many BNSF routes, American routes, etc but I feel like this would be a great route for train simulator. If you are a railfan in colorado you know exactly what this route is. 1. The Route This route is about 126 miles, and goes from Sterling, Colorado to Denver, Colorado. "The line starts near Denver's Union Station and follows, and eventually crosses UP's Greeley Sub. The line continues northeast, paralleling Interstate 76. There is a yard at Hudson/Keensburg. At Fort Morgan is an Amtrak station. At Brush is a junction to the Akron Sub. The line continues north and ends at Hillrose/Messex, and connects to the UP Julesburg Sub in Sterling." (from a railfanning wiki). Here is a website of a BNSF map, just type in one of the following towns (make sure to put Colorado after the town) and you can find / follow the route http://www.acwr.com/economic-development/rail-maps/bnsf (sorry for the inconvenience about the map, I was going to do a fancy map using "Google's My Maps" but it wasn't liking me for some reason.) Passes through the following towns: Denver - Commerce City - Brighton - Hudson - Keenseburg - Roggen - Wiggins - Fort Morgan - Brush- Hillrose - Merino - Atwood - Sterling. It starts as a major industrial, residential areas when you leave Denver but quickly turns into the plains, prairies along the line as you head for Sterling. 2. History "The Brush Sub was first built in 1882 by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad. In the 1980s, after the merger of CB&Q, Colorado & Southern, and two other railroads, the line was now owned and operated by Burlington Northern. Today, it is owned by BNSF and is mainly used for coal trains in the Powder River Division." 3. The Traffic The route claims to see over 20 trains a day, but most of the time you are able to see 8-10 trains during the day time (very active line at night as well). The trains consist over Coal, Intermodal, Oil, Gravel, Manifest, Locals, and the Amtrak California Zephyr passes through, and has a train station in Fort Morgan, Colorado. (This gives many scenarios DTG and players could do / make; Could do at least 13 scenarios like 2 coal scenarios, 2 Intermodal, 1 oil, 1 gravel, 2 manifest, 3 locals (one local could be switching cars for the Great Western Sugar Co-Op in Fort Morgan (make sure you bring nose-plugs for that scenario!)), and 2 Amtrak ones (Amtrak passes heading West once and then returns East, not really a time cause it just shows up whenever it wants too). 4. Equipment: Could easily do a BNSF ES44AC, BNSF SD70ACE, BNSF GP38-2, BNSF SD40-2. 5. Older Power: As mentioned earlier the line was built by CB&Q, so I believe at some point there could be a add-on pack for this route that includes trains such as CB&Q, and at one point Burlington northern. so there is another add-on pack. CB&Q: F7's, GP7's, E5's, U25C's, even some steam if you wanted too like Chicago, Burlington and Quincy class O-5 4-8-4 BN: SD60M, F45, GP50, GP39, GP20C, F9-2 A and B units. 6. Why I believe this line could work in train simulator: It includes something for everyone who is into American railroading and BNSF. It has major cities and industrial areas, empty plains and fields for fast trains to fly through. If they enjoy passenger you have the amtrak, manifests for the freight lovers, switching jobs for the local lovers... you get what I mean. I apologize if this thread is all over the place, its my first time making one so I wasn't sure where to go so I just added as I went along. All photos are from Eric C. Lindgren, I take no credit at all for them.
