The RS-11 was build by Alco in the early 1956 as a diesel electric locomotive and classified as a road switcher. With 1,800 hp, two axle trucks with B-B wheel arrangement the RS11 was Alco’s answer to the GP9 produced by EMD.

Advantages of the RS11 were faster acceleration because of turbo charging and a higher tractive effort rating. The locomotive could be found in heavy haul freight as well as passenger services.

In over eight years production time 425 units were build for the American and Mexican market. A few examples of this model are still in service and could be found working for various railroads in the US.

It´s a cold winter’s day and the weather might turn to the bad ...

The weather is good and this should be an easy run to get familiar with the engine.

It won´t be easy to keep your train under control, so be careful.

Repaints

With an additional download you get the option to repaint the 3D models.
The download contains a Dump image which gives you an idea where the polygons of the 3D model are placed on the texture and a Shadow map which could be placed on top of your own texture creation to add shadows. I would be happy if you could send me an email with a screenshot of your repainted Alco RS-11: uf@virtual-railroads.de

ENVIRON SCENERY - PROVIDENCE FSX P3D
John Thuot II
I have been looking for a more modern look to Providence City sky line for a long time. It is finally here with Environ Scenery's project. It is truly awesome to see the buildings as they should be in the real world locations. I am from the local area and can point out many of the landmarks in the city as you travel over it. Great job Environ Scenery, maybe upgrade the airports just a bit and you have yourself a wonderful gem of a scenery project!!!!!

I have a very very powerful machine that can run the PMDG 747 v3 with any aerosoft scenery at 40+ fps. This scenery however I get OOM'd before I can even taxi with DEFAULT AIRCRAFT. This scenery is a HUGE VAS drainer!
FBS - CAM RANH INTL AIRPORT 2013 FSX
Fulvio Arman
This review is written just to warn P3D users not to buy it. I made a mistake - it's a personal choice and consequently a personal fault -, hoping it might have been at last partially compatible with _P3D, such as a lot of FSX add-ons I sucessfully installed. Said that, I think its price is quite high if compared to its quality (25 MB); more, I wrote to the support service but no answer at all.

Great Add-On! Thank you JustSim for creating this beautiful scenery for us!
FSXCENERY - KGFK GRAND FORKS ND X-PLANE 11
Chris Hallam
I'd like to get this as there really is not any ND scenery. but the scenery quality is not there yet, there are no orthophoto sceneries, the parking lot is grass, there is no surrounding city or buildings.
PC AVIATOR - MEGASCENERY EARTH - PORTUGAL FSX P3D
Alessandro Vannetti
disappointing. drawn water, grainy textures, incorrect colors, patchwork. A bad, rushed work.
REALWORLD SCENERY - REALWORLD SCENERY GREECE 3D VOL.1.6 FSX P3D
Alessandro Vannetti
I'm writing a second review because after some days the developer answer to me and send me a noshoreline.bgl which didn't solved the problem of "water cliffs" i reported in the first review... but still maked an effort. Also-
, i discovered that the issue was related to taburet mesh or to a conflict between it and fs global mesh europe which i had activated together. Infact disabling taburet solved the problem and improved also the performance. I believe its taburet and p3dv4 because disabling it didn't solve the problem (along with noshoreline.bgl-
). The scenery is a little better in definitiion than other payware photoreal like megascenery i bought megascenery portugal and it far worst in color error and definition. Still it may be worse in definition than outstanding freeware such like xplane orto or italy photoreal. So this is a good solution for scenery in general and it is absolutely recomended for those who love greece. I give 5 stars to compensate the first low review, final vote after exstensive testing 4 stars because its a bit expensive but it has autogen (with too few trees).

Yann Martineau
Very unprofessionnal product. Huge VAS eater. i loaded the default 737 when a bit around the airport i had fsuipc alert and only 250000 vas left. Even with big airports from well known designers and PMDG aircrafts i never saw that! Will ask for refund coz this one is purely and simply a scam. Simmarke-
t should have a minimum of quality control
