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 ...

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.

A2A SIMULATIONS - COMANCHE 250 P3D ACADEMIC
Brad Townsend
While I did not purchase this from SimMarket (I bought from a competitor) I had to leave a review. This is the absolute best GA plane in existence and is a joy to fly. I put this up there with the Majestic Q400, if not better for flight dynamics. For all the PMDG enthusiasts this is also on par if not better than ANY PMDG product I have ever owned (NGX and 777). When the 3D gauges start to shake because your mixture and RPM setting is not correct that just showed me how much detail this baby really has. I am absolutely shocked this plane does not cost twice as much as it does. This is a MUST own even if you do not like flying GA's. Every hangar should have some low VFR aircraft especially if you have Orbx or other scenery packs. This is that GA.
AEROSOFT - AIRBUS A318/A319 FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Tyler Choo
An amazing simulator for those who want a realistic aircraft, but not so realistic to the extent of products like PMDG. This aircraft is good for getting the hang of what flying an aircraft is really like, without too much to take care of as one person, because aircraft are usually handled by 2 people.
TAKEFLIGHT INTERACTIVE - AIR ALASKA FSX P3D
Clay Tobias
What a pleasant surprise from some ex-Aces developers for bush pilots running Prepar3D 2.5 or FSX. You are based northeast of Anchorage at Birchwood airport in Chugiac, Alaska. Initially, your stick and rudder skills will be put to the test with a lawn mower engine and sticky, fat tundra tires... and later in a Beech Baron twin. If you have the A2A Piper Cub it fits in seamlessly and if you don't the default cub is used. Works with FTX Southern Alaska or Global/Vector or UTX/GEX or default. The-
re are some rough edges hear and there but the developers have an open, friendly and responsive forum and are actively fixing whatever bugs and nits that get discovered by the intrepid few. Though the missions tend to be short they're well worth the $15. I look forward to more from Takeflight soon.
TAXI2GATE - SEATTLE-TACOMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KSEA FSX P3D P3DV2

Taxi2Gate has really impressed me with this scenery. Extremely well-done KSEA and a performance marvel. Keep it up guys, you're now competing with the best of them!

GW Kranenbarg
T2G becomes more and more my favorite scenery developer. They have done again a great job with KSEA. Very detailed scenery, still very performance and VAS friendly. Terminal interiors are also very well done with superb reflections on the windows.

Jimmy McCorkle
This scenery is beautiful both day and night. There is a lot of attention to detail with this package, the color of the buildings in the city looks fantastic when flyingt over at dawn or dusk. The AI traffic is well done, there are many custom vehicles, the more you explore this scenery, the more details you find. The landclass upgrade is nice too, and it covers a 40nm radius around the airport. FSDG keeps making better and better scenery.
