BNSF/UP Mojave Sub with the Cajon Pass

Unread postby NVergilio » Sun Jan 20, 2013 10:50 am

Recently I started thinking about adding the BNSF Mojave Sub and SP Mojave Sub. It will start by editing the default Cajon Pass route with new building and trackage. I started to create the track from S/B Yard to West Colton. Then I will start laying track from West Colton / Barstow to Mojave. Then I will edit gradient, then add scenery and paint the ground. If I have spare time, I will add track to Bakersfield via Tehachapi and the BNSF Needles Sub. A lot of work, but a very good railroading experience. Best of luck. !*salute*!

nope! Marc is also working on a new cajon pass version so that makes four people! *!!wink!!* So you see NVergilio that it makes no sense for you to continue on your project. Please don't be mad at me because I say this but it would make more sense if you would check out this thread and then decide what you would like to build: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7282 !*salute*!

I'll do it anyway, and I will try to build this as my goal.

May I respectfully ask why?

Because this will be a great experience of the Mojave/Cajon areas where we can drive BNSF/UP freight on this route ( or routes *!lol!* ). To say to all, this will be a great thing!

I rely think you should put your effort in to something that isn't being built by multiple people.

Maybe Needles Sub?



This would be great for you to make and much more appreciated!

It's the same sandy type route, same kind of scenery, basically the same everything except for the loop.

STOP FIGHTING OVER WHO'S GOING TO BUILD A DUMB LOOP AND JUST BUILD SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!! !*roll-laugh*!

I agree with mdurdan. Why spend time building the same route three other people are already working on individually? If you're set on California, I would love to see the SP Coast Route...But that's just me.

no... if someone wants to build something let them.

How many versions of the 'Bay of Quinte' are out there? And I know of several 'Castle Rock' revisions over the few years I have had Railworks. While I agree we need more diversity in our routes, there is no reason to quash one's desire to create something.

Now get back into the cab. You have a high ball.

I approve the Needles Sub, making 5 subs in 1 route, 1 sub obviously made by RSC, being editing by me. !*roll-laugh*! I will try my best on the route. I'll call this project the point to point project or the triangle. Here are some of the towns/cities on the whole route:

-San Bernardino
-Victorville
-Barstow
-Needles
-Bakersfield
-Mojave
-Boron
-Colton

My goal goes in order from editing the Cajon Pass, adding Colton yard, adding tracks from West Colton to Mojave and Bartsow to Mojave, then the Tehachapi, then the Needles Sub.

BTW, here are other cool routes I would love to have in TS2013:

-Pacific Surliner
-Capitol Corridor or San Joaquin

And here are the trains I would love to have in TS2013:

-GE P32-BHW
-EMD F59PHI
-GE ES44DC & ES44C4
-Genset Switcher
-Amtrak NPCU
-Amtrak HHP-8

I am making the CC, but more than likely it will take me years to finish it. If someone else decides to make it then they will likely be done before me *!lol!*

And more than likely my route would differ greatly from any other version because I am setting it in a specific time, and adding parts which I feel pertinent and fun.

Go for it. !!*ok*!!

I should note that the ES44DC does currently exist for RW but is currently not available off of steam yet, its still undergoing its TS2013 enhancement. It is included in the CN pack which gives you a CN ES44DC and a CN SD40-2
