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

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.

A construction site in Cresson needs the daily supply of workers and materials.

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

FSDREAMTEAM - MEMPHIS INTERCONTINENTAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Dan Dominik
Beautiful scenery with good frame rates even at full traffic levels (using UTII). For daytime flying this is a great rendition of KMEM. My only issue with this add-on is P3d dynamic lighting or, specifically, its lack of full implementation in the ramp lighting. FSDT has been clear about this and the reasoning behind it in their support forums, so there's not fault on their behalf. However, I also think it would be best if some night shots were included in the preview screens here (perhaps a few less avatar shots?). If your plan intended main use is night cargo flying you will NOT see those dozens of md-11's and 77F's bathed in dynamic ramp lights. FSDT has suggested there may be an update sometime in the future, but it's not a given. An excellent add-on, my advice is to try the demo version available (FSDT is tops in this option) in day and night flying prior to full purchase to ensure it will provide what you seek.

You did it again!After many years using the def pmdg sounds, it's high time that we use something fresh!Excellent rendition to the sim, well done Pedrag!
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
keinan rogan
First time reviewing a product. I am a 737NG Fan and have been flying on simulators for over 15 years. These sounds produced from immersive Audio in my opinion are the best 737NG CFM engine sound packs to date! Youtube any 737NG video inside or outside and you will not come closer than Immersive audios CFM engine soundpack for the 737NG. Takeoffs sounds will give you a vibe as if you are moving something very heavy! Five stars without question. Immersive Audio development team great job! Keep this standard.

FSDG - SEYCHELLES V2.0 FSX P3D
Patrick Nadig
VFR flights are very relaxing there is so much to discover, light houses , sunken ships and much more great details ! I really love it good work !
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES - BARCELONA FSX P3D
Steven Wong
I will say right off the bat that if you have LatinVFR Barcelona, you won't need this. LatinVFR scenery looks nearly identical to what's provided here. Saying that, this Prealsoft scenery is very good, and provides a highly detailed cityscape. I'm not sure what Aerosoft Mega Airport Barcelona covers, but as mentioned, if you don't have an LEBL scenery that covers the surrounding area, this would be an excellent addition.
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
Angus Rowlands
Excellent job by Immersion Audio. Only thing I would like to see is the same sounds being modified for use with the 600-700 series. Otherwise I'm very pleased with my purchase, highly recommended.
LHS - BUDAPEST LISZT FERENC LHBP FS9+FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Daynas Corman
Nice! I flew out of Budapest yesterday and was looking for a P3D V4 version which I found. It does have the feel of the real airport and is a overall nice add on. The P3D V4 seems to work well.
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
Radu Mares
Briefly put: recommended. Easy installation with bgl files activated like scenery addon, corrects time issues at all my airports and thus corrects sunrise and sunset issues I had with Iceland airports. Regu-
lar updates are needed to keep track of day shifts and are also provided as download from the developer site. Well worth to add it to your sim world.
PAULO RICARDO - FORTALEZA 2014 P3D4
Steven Wong
This review is coming right after I just reviewed the excellent Joinville scenery. Fortaleza is another great scenery from this developer, which offers a great location at the northern part of Brazil. This makes this location quite accessible for flights to major cities in the US and Europe. The surrounding scenery is amazing, with what seems like hundreds of buildings, which give a great sense of an urban city, yet performance seems to be quite good as my frames only take minor hits in fps. The only minor thing is that the runway markings seem a bit blurry up close, but once you rise above a few feet, it becomes much better looking. Also, the runway and apron ground textures could also be somewhat sharper. If I may, i'd love it if the developer could improve this, as this would then make the airport 5+ stars, and amongst the best of the best. Once again, another outstanding effort from this developer!
