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. I would be happy if you could send me an email with a screenshot of your repainted Alco RS-11: uf@virtual-railroads.de

Herman Auer
Very nice product that offers a great deal of immersion. So much so, that I find myself flying with German carriers most of the time... The duel language setting is an absolute bonus. I'd gladly give it 5 stars if more airports were added. Highly recommended!

CLOUDBERRY SIM - OAKLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D
Daniel Wasinski
So happy to finally have an Oakland scenery in Prepar3d! The terminal is nicely modeled and the default AFCAD has mostly correct parking spots for AI traffic. Dur-
ing the day, the terminal looks great, the ground polys are nicely modeled (even though the ground textures by the gates could use work). The cargo area for FedEx west of the terminal is accurately modeled along with the engine run up area just to the south. I love using the scenery and flying into Oakland! There are, however, some minor problems with the airport that can hopefully be fixed in a coming update. At night, the terminal glows very bight and there is no dynamic lighting. It's just very strange to have a bright structure on top of dark ground. I have noticed as you pull onto runway 30 you can see an underlying texture of runway numbers from the default runway. Cloudberry included a custom ini file to replace the static jetways with the custom GSX ones. I was unable to get it working and had to manually add GSX jetways (Not sure if others were able to get their file working). The only other area that I have noticed that could really use some love are the gate areas. In the real world there are lines denoting the safety zone for each gate along with stop lines for certain aircraft types, both are missing in this scenery. I really do love Oakland and truly enjoy flying there. A few of the things I have noted are nit picky but I hope that Cloudberry sees some of them and possibly adds/fixes them in a coming update to really make this airport top notch!

JETSTREAM DESIGNS - PARIS ORLY LFPO P3DV4
eric Desré
J'avais abandonné FSX pour P3D et attendais avec impatience l'arrivée d'une version LFPO. Je n'ai pas été déçu. Travail magnifique ! Bravo ! Et il y avait déjà les bâtiments Orly 1,2,3,4 six mois avant la mise en service réelle ! Frameset très correct sur ma machine (conf : Core I7 3Ghz, Nvidia 1080) à la condition de désactiver LFPG situé dans le parages. LFPO est maintenant l’aéroport que j'utilise le plus. Un pur régal. Bravo !

CLOUDBERRY SIM - OAKLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D
Dylan Prestage
Great scenery that I've been waiting for since I first got P3D, Problem is it gets buggy with and without FTX Northern California and I'm not really gonna use it until it is compatible with FTX NCA so I hope that you guys can update it to be compatible sooner or later. other than that, Great Work! Would love to see more from you guys
