Progress Report on the Utah and Rocky Mountain
Topic: U&RM RR

by Brian Eckard

Work continues on the Utah and Rocky Mountain. the current module being built will extend the layout from Moscow ID to Riggins ID. I am currently finished up to Nezperce, ID. This past weekend I decided to avoid the heat and stay in doors enjoying the air conditioning and getting some more work completed on this module. What was left to do was adding the scenery textures and various scenery objects to the route in the current section (between Orofino, ID and Nezperce.

With that work completed, I removed all of the un-needed scenery titles and made some test runs. I also fixed the speed limits along the river going into Orofino. You can now travel up the river at 45 mph for the entire distance! In a couple of weeks I’ll be adding the next section’s map to the module and work can begin on extending the track further south. Ultimately, we are headed for Boise, ID and points beyond to Salt Lake City.

Stay tuned for more!

The Utah And Rocky Mountain Railroad is a fictional railroad that runs from Spokane, WA to Salt Lake City, UT. It is being built in Real Scale using the Trainz 2004 Railroad Simulator. The current finished layout module goes from Spokane, WA to Moscow, ID. The next extension will take the track south to Riggins, ID.
