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.

FSXCENERY - KTLH TALLAHASSEE FSX P3D
Lupardi Paolo
Great idea to give life also to the minor regionals airport. BTW, in P3d v3, I have major problem with afcad taxiways that are not matching the ground photo layer and lines on main apron are all black. The author is responsive with mail sent and support, but as he stated, he has no tested it in P3d v3, despite here on simmarket details is stated that is compatible. I give 2 stars until my problems get solved.

FSXCENERY - TWEED-NEW HAVEN REGIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
brian miller
I am mainly giving this review as a Thank you to the developer for making addon scenery for the state of Connecticut. We are home to flightSimCon and have been ignored in the FS world for years. This scenery is definitely better than nothing and the quality matches the price.
AEROSOFT - SACRAMENTO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Aaron Penn
Just installed Sacramento. Gorgeous!! I have a Core 2 Duo E8600 with a GT8800 card running Windows XP with only 3.5 gigs of ram; an ancient system. And guess what? It runs at 25 FPS!! Now the thing is you may, like I did, have to remove the LIB and the _LC which included all the parked cars and maybe other stuff. But The airport is not affected. Traffic? Try 100% Airline and General Aviation!!! It crashed with the LIB and _LC installed but if you got the power you may not have this problem. I give it a green light!!Go!!
PAULO RICARDO FSX - MEGA RIO DE JANEIRO AND NATAL CITY PACK 5
ANDRE ROVIGATTI
Simply the best scenery I have ever seen ! Crowded of tons of very well detailed buildings, makes Rio de Janeiro one of the most exciting place for flying, with an amazing view, blue waves and all the famous touristic points . Because de complexity of the local mountains, we can choose different (some illegal) aproaches, flying between huge moutains, in a very challenging final approach . The scenery has a very good definition, and makes our experience as real as it gets ! Finally , good news for low buget PCs : I am flying on Rio at full controls, with a stable 20 – 25 Frames per second , with payware add-ons, not tons of them, but enough for a confortable flight, on a – unbelieveable ! - APU AMD A-10 7850K , Kingston 120 MB SSD, 16 MB RAM memory, WITHOUT DISCRET GRAPHIC BOARD, at a half cost of an Intel + GForce. Congratulations-
, Paulo Ricardo !
SIMPLE FSX MISSIONS - CARGO AIR
Eskil Dalenius
This mission pack comes with a folder of programme files for manual installation, which is very good! The missions also have rewards - another plus! There is a cargo manifest (load sheet) for each flight (an elegant touch!). The aircraft aren't loaded accordingly, however, so it is mainly eye candy. Unfor-
tunately the quality of the pack is marred by several errors: - The required flight plan is missing for flight #1, and two non-relevant flight plans are included in the pack. - The paths (in the .flt file) for all flight plans are incorrect (they point to the mission creator's own setup). - There is some sloppy spelling and punctuation. -
- The final sound file, and its accompanying caption, are transposed between flights #6 and #7. - In two of the missions (Honduras-Mexic-
o and JFK-Gander), the cruising altitude in the flight plan and in the mission file do not tally, so the mission will not end unless you change one of them. Also, the altitude is set as AGL, which will result in it not triggering if you fly over high terrain (the Honduras mission). - For flight #9, the altitudes on approach are set as AMSL, which means they will not trigger and therefore the mission won't end. - In the Honduras mission, the "AirportLanding-
Trigger" is set for another airport than your destination (MGTK instead of MMUN), which will prevent the mission from ending. - The Mission Compass will not always indicate the take off runway that you are given by ATC. This means that you may have to taxi first to the Mission Pointer (to trigger the next mission step), and then return to the runway given by ATC. - Two of the missions load as Free Flights. If you remove the four SimObjects (ground vehicles) at the beginning of the .xml file, and the corresponding "ObjectActivati-
onActions", the missions will work! Had it not been for the multiple errors, this pack could have been worth its prize. As it stands, however, you should get it only if you are prepared to, and know how to, spend time repair all the glitches.
PAULO RICARDO - SALVADOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SBSV AND CITY FSX P3D
Jens Peter Bruun-Hansen
Paulo Ricardo is the magnificent Scenery Wizard Number Uno ! Once more i must praise a fantastic scenery project from Paulo, and like with Fortaleza you get an extremely real feel approaching Salvador with an incredible richness of details,thousan-
ds of skyscrabers and houses in the city and a very nice and detailed airport too. The most fantastic is the incredible speed (fps) you prowl along the scenery with (100+) and even I'm not a frequent SA flyer,i will.. I Must come back to Salvador, this is FSX scenery wonderland THA-
NK YOU PAULO RICARDO the scenery deserves 10 stars, not five !
CARENADO - SR22 GTSX TURBO HD SERIES FSX P3D
Sean Karges
Carenado has released a few significant updates to this model within the past year, which supersede the reviews from other users in 2013. Performance at least for me has noticeably improved by a great amount (i5 machine @ 4.8GHz w/ GTX 970), as is the addition of further functionality to the G1000 (editing waypoints, as well as a number of minor functions). More fluidity as well in the displays.
