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

WOW and I've not even gotten into it or the spray yet. I BUY a lot of planes for MSFT and this one is a great little model. Interiors great - flies super well, excellent views... many well done camera angles. Ig it disapoints later I'll change review. In first 15 minutes... WOW

I bought this on the MSFS Marketplace and I consider it to be very well made. Flies great and the sound is awesome. It comes with an integrated checklist (albeit not automatable, although starting the plane is simple enough, tbh) and even has historic pilot avatars and the regular ones from MSFS to choose from. The plane is a lot of fun, no regrets to buy this. It is also a total bargain.

I truthfully have no complaints. -
I had low expectations since many kept saying this was bad. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The exterior is beautiful. What else can I say? The cockpit looked nice, maybe not study level. If you don't like how it flies and already purchased it, try a flight improvement mod! It definitely helped me out! Happy flying!

It's a great scenery and I would give it a 4.5 star rating. This is available since 2016 and still has not a SODE gateways! this put this scenery a way back compared to other sceneries of similar price range. I give it 3 out of five stars.

Just an Update for my review. i've been contacted by Virtualcol, and they explaind the importance of activating the AP exactly as in the Tutorial, and it workes much better now.thnx for the fast response. to sum it up: speed MUST be inputed for flight phase in the FMS BEFORE activating AP, Select the desired ALT without pressing the ALT hold, engage the VS and select, engage FMC button (NOT NAV) and only then activate the AP. still can't quite figure out speed selection logic, and ILS APP, but maybe it's me. anyways TUTORIALS are a must to fly this one, can't just jump in! i've had some more enjoyable flights now, hope some flightmodel improovments will be done to make more realistic. hop-
e this helps, have fun!

Producto bastante mediocre. Copia paneles de otros aviones y tiene bastantes fallos. Las texturas externas son un poco más pasables. No es un trabajo profesional. No lo recomiendo en absoluto.

Very cool plane to have. It needs a lot of improvements. -
To begin with, there is NO wingflex, which is very disappointing. -
The engine looks absolutely horrendous. It isnt circular and the tectures look like stickers. Th-
e winglet of the E175 looks weird. It feels like they got the size and angle wrong. I would not recommed it at this moment. But if the problems mentioned above are fixed I'll gladly be the first one to recommend it.

I purchased the DC Design’s Stearman when it was first released on the Just Flight store. This is a real gem if you like historic aircraft. It handles nicely, looks great and is very reasonably priced. A really nice experience in VR too!
