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.

Scenarios

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.

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

FSDREAMTEAM - MEMPHIS INTERCONTINENTAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Thibault Dosunmu
FSDT pushes the boundaries even further in airport scenery design. The ratio between eye candy and resource footprint (VAS, FPS, etc...) is so incredible it is hard to understand how they manage to get such a performance while being that easy on the resources... really impressive. Why 4 stars? Well, as mentioned already I think too much developing time goes wasted in those avatar/EMAS functionalities-
. I'd rather have them ditched and win 25% development time and maybe even get a lower selling price because let's be honest, even though it is worth it, the scenery is quite pricey. I've never used the avatar and probably never will because if I wanted to play an open world first person game I'll fire up GTA 5... But still, this is technically the most advanced airport scenery of 2016 hands down.

It takes quite a bit to beat REX but I think these guys have done it and this paired up with ASCA is a match made in heaven, I'm loving the look of the new sun, sky and cloud textures.

To describe it in one word... Incred-
ible! But the colours are just so more realistic than other addons similar to this have to offer. Makes the sim feel a lot less cartoon like on first testing looking forward to having a play around with this product.
