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.

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

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.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE AIRPORTS X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
This is far and away my favorite scenery addon ever. I grew up in Seattle, and have spent more of my time at KPAE and KBFI, PAE in particular, than any other place in the city over the years. For a long time, the three Boeing west side facilities have been severely lacking in the flight sim world, something that left a big gap in my simming experience as I regularly do test flights and delivery flights (as observed by myself and taught to me by Boeing test crews) but always in poor, unrealistic default scenery. But now, Drzewiecki Design has created my home field (KPAE) as well as the two other Boeing west side facilities, KRNT and KBFI, plus Auburn Airport (S50) in stunning detail! The accuracy of these airports is simply breathtaking as I see my home brought to life in the sim world. I can even visit my flight school at Paine Field with their real storefront and self pump station! This package blends seamlessly with their Seattle City X package and both packages have outstanding performance and visuals. Special thanks to Drzewiecki Design for this long awaited and much appreciated package!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
Extremely accurate rendition of the city I grew up in. Fantastic performance and suitable in all sims from FSX to P3D V4, and an X-Plane version is on the way (separate from this). It's an astonishing coverage area of the entire I5 Corridor of the Puget Sound. My only complaint is that the winter textures are not as high quality as the other seasons, but it is a minor detraction. It looks amazing and plays well with all my other addons including Taxi2Gate's KSEA in P3D V3 and P3D V4 as well as Orbx PNW. Amazing work to Drzewiecki Design. I couldn't be happier.

Nice blend into P3D v4 surrounding scenery and Orbx NA LC. And THANK YOU for CTL-J jetways. I've had it with SODE that never works.

Airport is a very accuraterenditi-
on of CYVR. It is an airport that is very detailed but doesn't cause a major FPS hit. I fly into this airport frequently without any issues.

Randall Smith
Excellent scenery package. The attention to detail is second to none. This brings new life to the Seattle area. You can now simulate a delivery flight out of any of the three Boeing Fields. Job well done DRZEWIECKI DESIGN
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FSX P3D
Peter Ward
Thus is my first ever scenery review, but I am so impressed I felt bound to comment. Over many years I must have spent thousands on scenery. I use this in P3DV4 in VR and have been blown away by the ease with which I can load it up up with AI, Autogen, weather - the works. I have never been able to do this before with any other scenery out there. It remains butter-smooth. I think this is a quantum leap in scenery efficiency. Other developers should take note..

The airport looks awesome. So many details and high quality textures. Sometimes a few FPS Problems together with Moscow but that's not really a problem.
