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.

Operation

Operation is a usual with all driveable vehicles in Railworks Trainsimulator 2012/13.

Loadmeter

The Loadmeter shows you the current electric loading with the chosen regulator notch.

Dials

The four dials show you Booster Air Pressure, Lubricating Oil Pressure, Engine Water Temperature and Fuel Oil Pressure.
The needles show values with are calculated by LUA script.
The dials have no influence on the behaviour of the machine but give a little bit more realism to the cab.

Middle console

Gives you access to the Dynamic brake, the sander control, the reverser and the regulator.

Wiper control

You can start and stop all four wipers with the normal key in RW or you can switch on or off each wiper separately when you use the mouse and click on the wiper ( arrow ).

Switches

There are various switches controlling different functions:

  • Headlight Control
  • Bell
  • Cab Light
  • Name Plate lights
  • Wiper Control ( all four wipers )
  • Engine Start and Stop

Scenarios

The package includes 4 scenarios for the Horseshoe Curve route.

Cresson Shunter, 30 min, medium

You will be assembling an outgoing consist in this scenario.
It´s a cold winter’s day and the weather might turn to the bad ...

Short Freightrun, 35 min, easy

Starting at South Fork you will take a broken down freight train to Johnstown.
The weather is good and this should be an easy run to get familiar with the engine.

Night Run, 40 min, hard

You will deliver a heavy load from Altoona to Gallitzin.
It won´t be easy to keep your train under control, so be careful.

Unusual Job, 40 min, medium

A construction site in Cresson needs the daily supply of workers and materials.
You will bring a special train from Johnstown to Cresson.

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

Customer Reviews
MLADG - MESSERSCHMITT ME-109 G-2 X-PLANE
Dominic Smith
Having previously purchased both the Flight Replicas 109 and also the DCS variant, I was really looking forward to flying this model in X-Plane. However, after completing just a couple of circuits, it was painfully clear to see, that this offering by MLADG, was far inferior. The flight model for one, is totally unbelievably at certain phases of flight and really spoils the immersion factor. The engine sound samples too, are of poor quality (even with decent headphones) and have an annoying loop. If you've ever flown the A2A Messerschmitt (which is, I think, over ten years old), or the Cliffs of Dover variant, then you'll be extremely disappointed with the sounds provided. Graphically the aircraft looks reasonably good, but this is more down to X-Plane's lighting effects, rather than the model itself. If you're coming from FSX/P3D, or even Cliffs of Dover/DCS for that matter, then I suggest (unfortunately) you look elsewhere.

Ignore my last review! I just noticed the scenery configurator which allows you to set "Animated traffic" which is off by default. Top notch scenery!
LORBY-SI - CROPDUSTER X FSX P3D
Larry Wigmore
I would beg to differ with the previous comments describing CDX as boring. For those interested in light aviation and like to simulate low and slow flight, this program has allowed me to integrate the realistic rural sceneries of Orbx with the detailed purpose built AG aircraft accurately modeled by Alabeo, some simple scenery enhancement by ISD3, altogether into a most accurate simulation of the world of cropdusters. This is precision pattern flight simulation at it’s finest. CDX integrates an accurate representation of the SATLOC litebar into the cockpit, a sort of localizer guidance for each of the passes that are required to be at the correct height, speed and track to efficiently spray the field. CDX provides the sim pilot a rating of how accurate the flying has been. The litebar is not easy to master, and for me , spraying a field is much more difficult than landing the plane correctly. A second part of the program involves treating your crops in a timely fashion to avoid their demise . This I haven’t yet gotten into yet and can’t comment. But the concept sounds brilliant. What I like about the newest version of the program is that I can designate any of the Orbx simulated farm fields as the one to be sprayed accurately. I have found you can easily enhance this field(s) with 3D crops as opposed to just the textured tile which adds greatly to the visuals. This can be done using ISD 3 ( Instant Scenery Designer) and a typical field can be enhanced for crop dusting in about 15 min. CDX developer ( Oliver Binder) is now in the process of integrating 3D crops directly into the CDX program. I should also mention he has been very helpful in answering many of my questions and is truly interested in refining and improving the product as much as possible. In conclusion, I was starting to find navigating from one airport to another as a little boring, particularly enroute. I looked forward to mainly executing the approach and landing correctly. Cropdusting is a controlled landing avoidance every pass and it is anything but boring, even simulated. Check out the real-life vids on You-tube !

I have been waiting for a beautiful rendition of Billund Airport and here it is. Fantastic detail and you can use the Scenery Configurator to see or not see the animated vehicles/static aircraft/Billun-
d village and so on. Just love it! Well done John and Vidan Design
SCENERY ON DEMAND - DRAGONEYE HONG KONG FSX P3D

Such a great product, makes HongKong more realistic also can run very smooth.
VIDAN DESIGN - BILLUND X FSX P3D
Tom Divendal
It's a nice little airport! Good looking textures, great modelling and very decent performance make this is a great destination. 4 out 5 stars because the airport still feels a bit "Lifeless" to me, some moving traffic on the apron would have been great.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - WASHINGTON X FSX P3D
Gregg Seipp
A rock-solid product. Great performance and just beautiful. My only wish is more trees. Worth every penny, though.
TAXI2GATE - PARIS CHARLES DE GAULLE LFPG FSX P3D
Tim Faithfull
Quite a nice looking scenery, but I'm having numerous issues with it at the moment. The scenery uses SODE to provide moving jetways etc - however this is not functioning properly on my system, and is causing the sim to freeze continuously. The jetways are missing, and SODE does not recognise any triggerable objects. There's no information about how to trigger the jetways in the documentation, and so far there's been no useful advice from T2G on their forums. Apart from this, I've noticed numerous texture glitches, with transparent jetways or missing polygons underneath buildings etc. I'd be happy to overlook these were it not for the scenery being completely unusable at present. If T2G come through with an update/patch to fix the issue, I will review my score!

Excellent rendition of EKBI in it's current state. Very high quality custom buildings and ground textures. Included config tool to customize seasons, apron and road traffic. Integ-
ration with Orbx Global and OLC.Can highly recommed it to all simmers for either GA or airliners.
