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

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.

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
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Deon Mathews
Not impressed and sorry I bought it even at the discounted price. The installation is silly... why not just create installers for the different sims? The installation manual is incomplete and the installation messes with add on airports. So far I have not managed to find a solution to gate assignments and positions changed during the installation which renders add on airports useless. Hav-
e uninstalled the product and hope the developers will address customer's issues.
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Osamah Alabdullah
This is the most confusing installation I have ever seen. Simply didn't work. I do not recommend buying MyTraffic 6 for Prepar3D. It is clear that the developers just included a workaround of their FSX base product for P3D and it just does not work. Money wasted.

Couldn't be made more simple. - Install - Enable virtual FSX - install FSX addon in P3D - Done.
RAS - GALWAY AIRPORT & ARANN ISLANDS
Troye Brady
I was originally going to give this product one star as it did not install properly on my Win7 (64-bit) computer. This program did not auto-detect my custom FSX installation folder and was set up to install to the default directory C:\Program Files (x86). This required some manual cutting and pasting of files. Having said all of that, i contacted the support person (basically the designer) and the response was fantastic. He wrote a new installer within a day and the program now auto-detects the FSX folder wherever it is. I hope that the product is now updated in the online stores. Alri-
ght, so what is the add-on like? Not bad actually, it makes a good enough difference to the Galway airport and the three runways on Arann islands to make it interesting. There are also four mission files, which don't have the greatest voice-overs but provide some fun and a bit of a challenge. Overall i did enjoy the add-on once it worked, but i'm not sure it is worth the regular price. Definitely much better value if you can pick it up on a sale under EUR10.
PAULO RICARDO FSX - FORTALEZA 2014 FSX P3D
João Marcelo
Produto de altíssima qualidade e que não apresenta alto uso de frames por segundo, inclusive usando produtos PMDG. E a representação da cidade de Fortaleza é muito bem elaborada, contendo vários prédios de referência, ótimo para voos VFR e para quem conhece a cidade, fica fácil se orientar. Excelente iluminação noturna, gates articulados and more. Enfim, considero o Paulo Ricardo o melhor cenarista do Brasil e que não fica atrás de nenhum produto internacional. Cinco de cinco estrelas. Hi-
gh quality product and does not have high use of frames per second, even using PMDG products. And the representation of the city of Fortaleza is very well prepared, containing several buildings of reference, great for VFR flights and for those who know the city, it is easy to steer. Excellent night lighting, articulated gates and more. Anyway, i consider Paulo Ricardo the best scenarist in Brazil and is second to none international product. Five out of five stars. Espec-

THAI CREATION - NI HAO MACAU: MACAU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Sam Kalachoras
Very nice airport with a very interesting, challenging (and neglected) 54 degrees localizer-offse-
t approach to RWY16, over the sea and a last-moment left turn to line-up. I you are missing Kai-Tak and are bored of VHHH straight-in, this is a great scenery to test your narrow or widebody jet piloting skills. Frames are very good, with nice looking night-lighting and unique bridge-taxiways to and from apron.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY NEXT SP2 FSX P3D
Alexandre Gabriel Gomes SILVA
Carregamento rápido, transição de camada de nuvens suave, nuvens não somem mais ou aparecem de repente, tudo bem suave com sensação de realismo mesmo. Parabéns a HiFi, continuem assim, Motor de tempo perfeito. O que faltou apenas é um janelinha perguntando qual simulador usar, caso tiver mais que um simulador instalado, onde o processo de configuração para escolher qual simulador é um pouco complicado para quem não conhece muito de Windows. Mesmo assim, Aprovadíssimo.
UK2000 SCENERY - LONDON CITY XTREME EGLC
Georgios Panagopoulos
I wonder what's the point of creating a so beautiful & detailed addons and pushing them to the market when they can be practically unplayble for the average simmer? With a pretty good computer that runs the most FSX addons smoothly I had at daytime around 20-22FPS with a default heli in offline mode while staying still on the ground. This means that it should sink to 12-15FPS with an addon a/c online. Flying there was not an easy thing. Very unstable perfomance and a bit of lag. Don't even think to try nightime flying.I had max 10FPS with the same heli offline. This purchase was a waste of money. I give them 2 stars only for the beautiful work.
