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.

The weather is good and this should be an easy run to get familiar with the engine.

It won´t be easy to keep your train under control, so be careful.

Repaints

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.

FSFX PACKAGES - PRECIPITFX (FSX, FSX:SE & P3D)
Peter Sparks
A nightmare to install and I'm still waiting to see any difference! -
So sorry I can't recommend this product which looked so promising.
REX MILVIZ - WX ADVANTAGE RADAR FSX FSXSE P3D
ILARIO MASALA
Nice product, got the first problem using P3D v3.0, it work only from 3.2, so had to update the Sim. The Support forum is very good, got the solution for my problem from a DEV. 3 stars because some button doesn't work and it works on 2d panels, and tu pull it up in Vc have to use the menu and I paid the full price, but I am sure this product will be improved over the time because it have a lot of potentialities.-
Do I recomend it? Of course I do, just keep in mind what I wrote and you will not be disappointed
EAGLESOFT - CITATION X EXTREME 2.0 FSX P3D
Raphael Martínez
I had all Citation X Versions, starting from FS9. It was an epic model at that time, but now. After reinstalling on my P3D, this aircrafts looks very old! I mean, after flying Flysimware Learjet 35A(2015 model), and then Carenado Cj2(2016), i cant really feel the joy of flying this bird anymore, i just want to finish the flight and drink a beer on behalf of old memories ;-P I hope we have a most modern and updated model for the citation X using today´s technologies, lets say...Carenado quality like (why not?) ;-) I do not recommend to buy at this time, especially for P3D...
DIGITAL DESIGN - ULLI ST. PETERSBURG X V2 FSX P3D
Todd Disrud
I need to update my previous review. Evgeny really does try to make things right. The scenery itself is glorious with hardly any frame rate hit, even with full traffic, which seems rare. Kudos to him, but please ditch SODE! Simmarket, you can delete my previous rant if you like.
TOPCAT - Take-Off and Landing Performance Calculation Tool
IGOR SIZOV
It lacks many profiles of aircraft, disrespect for the buyer who pays the money
TROPICALSIM - FERNANDO DE NORONHA SBFN FSX P3D FS2004
Eduardo Panzoni
Não tá legal esse cenário. Texturas estranhas, eu particularmente não gostei. Acho que o pessoal da TropicaSim tem condição de fazer algo bem melhor que isso. Fica a dica para uma atualização.
SIMPLE FSX MISSIONS VOL. 3 - AMAZON
Eskil Dalenius
These missions are what they are called, i.e. simple FSX missions, but they are quite enjoyable, varied and well thought up, with some nice scenery (using default items). No equipment failures or other catastrophic things occur. Many different aircraft are used, from the Learjet to the venerable DC-3. You get one or two rewards for finishing each mission. Wha-
t I especially appreciate is that there is a folder for manual install. I personally hate automatic installers, since I can't control what they do with my system, adding files in weird places, and changing my things! On the down side, there are some spelling mistakes in the captions. Also, some of the overview files have the wrong heading, and in two missions the reference from the mission (.xml) file to the overview file is misspelled which prevents the briefing from being shown. This isn't vital, but a little irritating. -
One of the missions (Cargo Transport) gives you the wrong information about which airports you are flying between, but if you just follow the Mission Compass this doesn't matter. Regr-
ettably, one of the missions (Amazon Fishing Trip) has a glitch, which makes it stop after the first minutes. In all, you get your money's worth.
