[b][color=#0000A0]Back story
(please be brief): A free add-on route for Railworks - TrainSimulator. It is a mostly prototypical recreation of the real CSX Alleghany Subdivision connecting Hinton, WV with Clifton Forge, VA, the birthplace of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company. Originally a division and then a subdivision, this double-track route has served for 140 years through the growth of the C&O into Chessie System, and today, into CSX Corporation.

I started building this for my own nostalgic fun as a virtual model railroading hobby. The goal is to recreate the subdivision and surrounding countryside as I knew it growing up there in the 1970's. My father worked on this subdivision for 43 years, so through his “reports about his day” each evening at dinner, a few rides in trains and his hi-railer, and many years of walking the tracks, the line seemed like part of my backyard. COA for RW is built using only game default and freely available user-created content from around the world. To keep this add-on free, some accuracies of the Alleghany were sacrificed but all functions and facilities of interest are represented as closely as possible using the materials ava
