Rocky Mountain High

Post by slider38 » Wed Mar 08, 2023 5:12 pm

I have started work on a new map - Rocky Mountain High. I have pulled the Durango and Silverton 2-8-2 out of mothballs to use as the first engine. I'm just getting this map started, so a long way to go, but work has started.

It took me a while to get this together. The result is the BNSF SD75M number 278.

I needed a new piece of mining equipment so I built a dragline.

The last engine is coming out of mothballs as it fits this maps parameters nicely. It is the Union Pacific AC44CW number 7238.

I finally got everything moved from my practice map to the actual map and re-tested. It took me a while. Hey, it's golf season. Now I have to start testing for playing purposes, come up with all the goals and I know I have a ton of map work to do. Still, progress is being made. :?

Hi Folks, This map's testing is off to a slower start than usual. I ran into an issue with an industry I created. Seems that there was a memory leak. Plus, it's golf season and SMR takes a backseat to that. Still, I am moving along. It's just a slow process. I will try and make the result worth the wait. Hope everyone is having a good summer. :)

Winter is coming along quite nicely, here. Plenty of drizzle rain that I love so much.

Certainly no expectations or demands on your time from me.

Actually, it gives me an idea. A golf themed map. Cities are the holes, tees are where the industries are and all sitting on a golf course looking layout. Golf buggy looking trains pulling loads of balls, bags, etc. Hilarious.

Hi Folks, I have finished my testing and have completed the map work that was needed. Now I just have to get the event files done. Then I will be able to get this finished map posted. Happy railroading. Slider
