This is the final engine for this map - the B & O GP9 6517.

All of the industries, annexes, goods, engines and train cars for this map have been built and passed their first test. A lot to do yet, but things are moving forward.

Everything has been moved from my test map to the actual map and re-tested. Now I have a few cleanup details to deal with and then I will start the playability testing and goals setting. Now it gets real.

I have taken testing about as far as I can. I think, after a number of adjustments, the map can be won from all starting positions. I have more work to do on the map and then all of the events xml stuff has to be created. I'm gaining on it little by little.

This was an interesting map to test. Lots of adjustments along the way.
