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.

It´s a cold winter’s day and the weather might turn to the bad ...

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

Night Run, 40 min, hard

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

PKSIM - ALFONSO BONILLA ARAGÓN SKCL FSX P3D
Axel Grau
This is a very nicely done product. Very detailed and complete. Corresponds to the actual state of the airport, including the new international terminal and runway ID
JUSTFLIGHT - L35 BIG BEAR CITY FSX P3D
Sam Britner
Really cant think of anything more they could have added, beutiful high resolution textures, realistic markings and taxiways and 10/10 static aircraft (optional). The one thing that i dont like is that you have to install the turbulent terminal (turbulent's version of FTXcentral) which i dont like as i only use one of their products. Apart from that the scenery is stunning, would reccomend.

I've been waiting for a great Riga scenery for a long time and I honestly had no idea this was coming until I saw the video earlier today! Can't wait to fly here, it looks amazing!
TROPICALSIM - SÃO PAULO GUARULHOS SBGR 2017 FSX P3D
Ciaran Andrews
I am giving this scenery four stars as it lacks one very important feature in P3D V4. Dynamic lighting. It is very difficult to move around at night without good lighting surrounding the terminals, the apron is pitch black and the taxiway lights aren't very bright at all. Don't get me wrong this is an awesome airport and with the addition of SODE it makes it even better! I would just like to see dynamic lighting and brighter lights at the airport so I can see better at night.

OVERLAND - FLY INTO THE SKY! - AIRBUS EDITION
Randika Nirodhawardena
Outstanding work by overland, this is very worth for the price. actually frame rate friendly and very detail. This is the best I have found among others. Great in night time too, no any texture change or problem when night flights. A380 is fantastic, very stable, great view from vc when approach. For the price best value, almost you will receive A320, A330 , A340 and A380 Detailed Panels with VC with this package. Good work, all the best keep it up. Hope to buy Boeing package too. Thanks
REALWORLD SCENERY - REALWORLD SCENERY GREECE 3D VOL.1.3 FSX P3D
Hyperas ...
Je reviens sur mon premier commentaire et ma première impression. Après un échange avec le Realworldscener-
y un update va sortir qui permettra le fonctionnement des scènes de façon autonome. J'ai finalement acheté les 6 scènes et ça en vaut vraiment la peine. Pour la première fois avec FSX on a une Grèce réaliste avec un bon niveau de détail. La scène se marie bien avec les add-ons déjà existants.
