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

The package includes 4 scenarios for the Horseshoe Curve route.

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.

Unusual Job, 40 min, medium

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

Installed it on P3D 2.5 and noticed the buildings outside the airport were not missing. I used ModelConverterX 1.4 to convert the models from FSX and P3dv2. After the conversion the buildings appeared. Anyway here's the link to the instructions. -

FSPASSENGERS X FOR FSX
Lance Louez
This is a must have for all serious FSX pilots. It adds perpose to our hobbie. This makes the game more realistic as it would be in the real world. for example you can set FSPassengers up so your flights are as they would be in real life keep your on board passengers happy by serving Drinks and Food. Activate/Deacti-
vate seatbelt sign. you will need to be an exceptional airline pilot to recieve the points and hours required to advance through the ranks through to Captain. There are also the possibility of falts such as engine and a host of other failures. Failures are set by the slider bar in the options menu by percentage. Crew/Passenger sounds adds to the realism. The only downside is that it is not yet compatible with FSX Steam edition of which I use, as I understand SecondReality software are working on a fix for this thanks SecondReality godspeed. Re-

HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY NEXT SP1 FSX P3D
Paul Leuko
What this developer did for FSX is nothing short of amazing. I won't write a long review as there is a demo available but I have to say that this is one addon that made my jaw drop. Get the demo and I am sure you will appreciate the work of these talented people.
ZINERTEK - HD AIRPORT GRAPHICS FSX P3D
DAVID HERBERT
Great product. It's not going to turn your default airports into payware add-ons but does give the default airports a payware "feel". The textures are so much crisper and sensible your defaults begin to look like payware without the localised detail. No hit on framerates. Worth the money.

This Carenado PA32 feels exactly like the real one (im real world pilot). Specialy after V3 release (several bugs corrected, and fully 64bit compatible). Definitely worth buy!
