It doesn't show well, but 521-1 is without its bogies/trucks so shipping by sea and road was probably the easiest solution logistically.

Anyone else here play Railroad Tycoon 3? Lets get some games going, I think there is a matchmaker somewhere on the HawkDawg forums if anyone is interested.

Also, what other good railroad games are there? I've been playing Train Simulator 2012 but there's too much DLC and loading times.

And what is wrong with Simutrans? Simutrans Experimental has a lot of very nice practical features, like passengers walking between stations by different companies, infrastructure sharing, and much improved as to what route passengers will take (unlike in OTTD with paxdest, they will not simply take whatever line goes in the most straight fashion to their destination, i.e. they will use the one that actually operates fastest, but will board slower vehicles if they arrive sooner). The graphics certainly look better than the atrocity that is 32bpp for OTTD, though the quality is variable between the pak sets.

Certainly better than the 32bpp (makes obvious the poor scaling between length and height) and the default TTD graphics, not counting the custom things. I don't know what you have against Simutrans...

There's a parameter in paxdist to choose the capacity saturation % before cargo starts using alternatives.

For all its flaws, Locomotion had some pretty nifty building mechanics that would have been useful in OTTD. Underground building, making turns on bridges, stations on bridges or underground, etc. I would kill to have these kinds of things in OTTD.

All geared up and ready to roll! The crews just taking care of last minute things. Mostly food stamp related, one is getting service tags for his dog. I'm the only one of is with a phone that supports google maps (gotta love smartphones) so I'm working scout. I'm all set, the public bus is gonna drop us off at the Skamtrak station which is only a mile away from the yard we aim to use. There's a mcdonalds on the way for the guys to buy cheap burgers, a liquor store right across the street for the half gallon and a food mart right behind that which great for me since I'm the only one who likes to eat real food. You won't see too many more of my hobo posts (not that I make many anyways) for a while since I only got internet off wifi. Ain't no wifi in boxcars and dumpsters. I will take many train pics for you foamers! And I'll smack any hippie I see lay on tracks in "protest" with my smiley! Farewell for now...actually in not leaving til Wednesday (today being Monday) but just in case I leave earlier smell ya later!

This should be the final, definitive version of "Little Boxes (on a Railway)":

Little boxes on a railway,
little boxes making clicky-clacky,
little boxes, little boxes,
little boxes, much the same.
There's a red one and a blue one
and a green one and a yellow one.
And they all run with a clicky-clacky
and they all look much the same.

And the people in the boxes
on their way to work or school or home,
they all leave for other boxes,
big or small, very much the same.

Was at Portland's Washington Park Zoo tonight. 30" gauge with the 4-4-0 and a diesel. Ride is shorter than usual this year since they're working on the elephant enclosure. Best though? Probably the one with the SP&S 700 and daylight 4449 running across the river.

Grand Canyon Railway puts on a fantastic show. A fifteen car train, frequently run at full capacity two or three times a day for several weeks, a 36 mile round trip journey, and a large North Pole "village" where they pick up Santa. As I recall, they carry more than 40% of Polar Express passengers in the nation.

Admittedly, it is pretty damn cool. I enjoyed working that train 95% of the time.
