I've been spending the last little while tracking down content on the DLS for my own upcoming projects after I registered, so didn't get around to it until now, but I just want to let you know that you've done an amazing job with this route, and I can't wait to see more of it! Great job all around on an amazing looking route, I'm really hoping to see this on the DLS sometime in future so I can play around with it myself!

Thanks a lot, friend! Though I couldn't gotten as far as I have without a bit of help from Curtis and Nick. Hopefully we'll get it done this year and then I can jump back on my United Verde & Pacific route. I have a thread in that one to.

Live your icon by the way. XD

Whooo boy. Yet again it has been longer than anticipated to give a real substantial update! Well, more than my last post anyway.

One thing I've been hesitant to do is build the Searles tunnel. Mostly because I had already built a line that went up and over the mountain which I had originally believed to be the original grade from the early days of the line. Turned out it was a shoofly built after a tunnel collapse.... >_<
Well I caved... I deleted the section of track that was the shoofly and built the tunnel. And here are the pics to show you all.

In this pic you can see the grade of the old shoofly in the background.

This shot shows the tunnel itself. Ironically it's a 2ft gauge tunnel for a Welsh route, but it was amazingly large enough for even BIG steam power! IT's a bit too square for my tastes, but makes a decent stand-in for now. I think Pencil's tunnel tracks will work much better here once he gets them finished.

In this shot you can see that the tunnel and portal need a bit of tweaking to get it to blend seamlessly into the landsacpe.

I really like this last shot. Although you can't get a good look at the engine, I love the perspective from inside a model T. I may actually place a trackside camera here to make run-by shots more dynamic.

Anyhow, I wish I had more, but that's all for now folks!

When / if :P
Yes, I do need to finish them. I'll have to dig them back up and see what's left to do......

Nice looking shots!

Thanks, Curtis! Though asside from this I've mostly been focussing on scenicing the narrow gauhe portion of the route. Trying to get it in a semi presentable state for a teaser trailer. One of those "Comming soon-ish" jobs. ;)
