    I have nothing :( And your first post is great, so indeed!
    I mean I could post one of those CrossCountry-FirstGreatWestern HST cominations from Bristol-Exeter.
    Or, your not-so-everyday Pacific Surfliner:

    Seeing Double. Two CN / IC SD40-2s, both numbered 6105 pull some coal

    (The various hoppers made this interesting to me, but I don't suppose you'd see CN pulling PRR.)

    1) Does it work well in-game? In Europe this loco family most usually pulls freight. I guess lack of electrification in yards can get problematic. I was thinking to use the AEM-7 on the NEC for freight. The GG1 does have such a scenario.
    2) Does it happen on the NEC sometimes? I was actively looking for pictures but found nothing.
    I guess it doesn't matter, if I want to do it I can do it :) Just gotten more stuck to realism with time.

    Well as for the first question, it works actually pretty well, but this thing would be more suited to fast freight work of course, and maybe a re-gearing to maximize it's full potential. But if you were around the NEC 50 years ago, then you would very much see these leading freight.



    And as for the second, nope, it's never happened before. If I recall the closest thing was when two 64s pulled a circus train down the corridor.

    In what looks like a New Jersey Transit train pulling freight, is actually the Morristown and Erie Railroad. the railroad is temporarily leasing the GP40PH-2 from the NJT for PTC compliance as the M&E's own #23 is down for maintenance and PTC work.

    Scenario. By a fairly well known author. Given your response, I suppose not. :)

    Don't Ctrl Z for the FPS counter, use the Steam overlay options - like any HUD you are using, it won't appear in screenshots.

    After a very slippy start this pair of Tinsley Class 37s get to grips with their load of 26 PHV limestone hoppers. They've just breasted a 1in70 climb and deserve a bit of a rest for the next mile or so while gently picking up speed on the flat.

    The loco skins have been released via Vulcan Productions as a single pack with all 25 unofficial Tinsley named 37s - Based on AP Class 37 Vol 1 & 2.
    The wagon skins and mods are currently under testing but will be released from the same site, needing Digital Traction Wagon pack 3.
    The route is a fictional WIP route I'm helping develop on and off between other projects

    When Craigie-C has finished celebrating his win in the official competition, I'm sure he will cast his judgement on this one. :)

    Trust me, the Friday night wine is flowing nicely.
    I was totally gobsmacked to win the official comp, I didn't think I stood a chance in hell.
    Just goes to show, you have to be in it to win it. :D:D:D:D:D

    On saying that I have really missed not being able to post in this comp. for a week.
    It's way more fun, not so serious and with a licence to post anything.
    I will be back with a vengence next week LOL :)
    Thanks for setting it all up.

    Sorry I didn't contribute this week, will try the next. Been so exhausted after my first COVID shot a few days ago that I still barely know what day of the week it is!
