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.

Cresson Shunter, 30 min, medium

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.

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

BLUE SKY STAR - AIRBUS A320/A321 CUSTOM SOUNDPACK EXTENSION (CFM56-5 ) FSX
David Rogers
The engine sounds are really fantastic. Some of the best I've heard in FS. I do have some looping and breaks in the sound, with some of the environmental sounds however (cooling, batteries, etc). Hopefully these can be fixed then this will be an absolute must have for the Aerosoft Airbuses.

Sir Baher did it again. He did it again and will do it again, thank you sir Baher for this beautiful internatonal airport. 5 stars
TAXI2GATE - MUNICH AIRPORT EDDM FSX P3D
Rafal Haczek
I didn't buy Taxi2Gate Munich right when it was released, as I wanted to read initial impressions from other simmers. Those were mixed, to be honest. Many people pointed out numerous bugs. So I decided to wait for an official service pack and I actually bought the product only after the new patched version had been offered. Fir-
st the pros of the scenery. I fly to/from Munich a lot and my Aerosoft MA Munich got very old. The T2G version of EDDM looks definitely better. Visuals, especially modeling and texturing of the terminal buildings, are top notch, as it usually is with this developer. Apron animations, 3D grass, parked cars/buses/stai-
rs and generally lots of details make this scenery really pretty. Also taking into account the size and complexity of the airport, it performs really well. I could get much higher FPS than e.g. at DD EPWA, which is considerably smaller. Plus, I guess, most of the initial bugs have been fixed quite quickly, which is another good point. Now the cons. I have a feeling Taxi2Gate does not use any beta testers, as 90% of the initial and remaining bugs are obvious and conspicuous. Now, in the new version, there are still some wrong taxiway/rwy signs, some flickering textures, as well as some contrasting low/high res textures (like the roads coming under the bridges). Also the jetways could do with some better alignment on the aircraft's doors (like FT has) though, on the other hand, it is good they are offered at all (many developers don't model them). All in all, I find it to be a great-looking, modern and well-performing scenery addon. Hoping to see the remaining bugs fixed and looking forward to Paris CDG!

this update is massive stepping stone for SDG. The quality is amazing with flawless modelling and graphics . The Environment at night is so realistic and i really like the taxi and runway light.After this update , VAS usage has decreased massively and triple the performance. Well done SDG , KEEP IT UP :D

A great improvement upon the former edition. Gald in having seen solved some weird problem, possibily due to some incompatibility between P3D v2.5 and v3.1.
JUSTSIM - LINZ AUSTRIA BLUE DANUBE AIRPORT LOWL FSX P3D
Alex Alexeev
Very nice scenery, excellent optimization, I set all settings on Ultra and simulation gave me 50 fps with PMDG 737. Highly recommended, as well as other scenery of this company.

Enormous frame-rate killer especially at night and really not worth the money!
AEROSOFT - NIGHT ENVIRONMENT - BRITISH ISLES FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Mark Tyrrell
It looks good. Appropriate 3D lighting, but overcrowded in the scenery. Aerosoft should have placed lighting over towns,cities and villages only. Though when I purchased this software it has caused an error message that says; "Your computer has run out of memory". Worthwhile if you have a top notch system, but no good if you low memory.
