    Been waiting for this one since DTM 1ST showed progress in it!

    They thought of everything didn't they?
    Now I definitely feel like picking up this one. Does it have the ability to customize specifications? (Child object horns and such).

    Unsure, you can try asking DTM directly on their Facebook page to try and get an answer.

    I'm absolutely hyped for this! I'm especially excited that we're finally getting some accurate-looking era-appropriate tank cars rather than the same old outdated recycled Kuju and RSC/DTG junk!

    True... might be the first time I actually spam DTM stuff on my trains.

    Same here! I'll start using the tank cars on my consists prior to the '90's! From the SP to the Seaboard System!

    With the info on SteamDB about Tehachapi coming to Train Simulator, the release of this with the Tank Train cars is very convenient, as the Oil Cans were commonly found there shuttling oil out of the Kern River oil Fields.

    What about having scenarios for the new Tehachapi with these locos, wouldn't it be better than scenarios for Donner Pass?

    Ohh, sweet!!! I can't wait!!!

    But also, I do wonder how long the Tehachapi Pass will be in route miles?

    And in regards to the upcoming Tehachapi Pass, it would be nice to see the entire 187-mile section from Bakersfield to Rancho, but since DTG is not particularly interested in long routes these days, I'm going to bet it'll be 69 miles from Bakersfield to Mojave.

    Maybe they can make it up by giving us something like the Arvin Branch, or the line that goes west from Mojave to the CalPortland plant.

    [QUOTE = "Daniel Gibbs, post: 325095, member: 5294"] Что касается предстоящего перевала Техачапи, было бы неплохо увидеть весь 187-мильный участок от Бейкерсфилда до Ранчо, но поскольку DTG особо не интересуется В наши дни длинные маршруты, я готов поспорить, что от Бейкерсфилда до Мохаве будет 69 миль.

    Yes you were absolutely right))) Tehachapi Pass Mojave-Bakersfield was confirmed today
