    Ok, I've tried out the route and here's what I have to say:
    Overall I really like it, the scenery is very well done and there's plenty of opportunities for operations. My only gripes are I wish some of the rolling stock was lettered for Clinchfield, like the coal hoppers and caboose. Other than that and the usual sound stuff, though I do appreciate the different horns, I quite enjoy this route and look forward to whatever workshop scenarios and scenario packs that come.

    What can I say, the route looks actually pretty good. The only bad part is the rolling stock. The GP38 is really just the same old rehashed GP38-2 from the N-Line. Even to the point where if you sound the horn, some ditchlight child objects can be seen flashing! The SD40s are really just SD40-2s. This is seen by the long frame of the SD40-2 on this model. The original SD40 had a shorter frame and lack of porches, the little area in front of the locomotive. [​IMG]
    Here is a PRR SD40 to compare.
    The GP9 and F7 are the same olds we've had for years.

    The gp7 and f7 do not have the same sounds as years prior. The ctrl-tab for the sd40 does not work at all. Overall I love the route and it captures the feel of West Virginia.

    I don't think that's entirely true, I compared the SD40 from this route to SD40-2's from Livonnia, Donner Pass, and Searchlight Simulations, and there are differences in the Porch Space on the back of the locomotive between the DTG/RSC models, as well as the overall frame length (Dash 2's were 3ft longer than the standard EMD SD38,40's and 45's)

    I like the route over all but there are some bugs that I hope you will address very soon. first is the absents of any warning when the speed limit changes from 30mph to 15mph. Even in Emergency stop it burns up over 800 pts. to get the train slowed up enough to stop loosing points. Also, when the spd lmt goes up there is often no warning of that either. There are times when it shows a tractor trailer going down the road sideways.
