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

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

Customer Reviews
JUSTFLIGHT - A318 JETLINER
Lewis
I have owned this for a year or two now, it sits in the LITE area of complexity. Wh-
ich means since you are alone in the cockpit work load is reduced by half, which in a way makes it feel even more realist (more time to focus on the flying). It has a basic FMC which operates alone quite well, you can load saved flight plans into, also it will plan major routes automatically and also has a direct to function. Overall it is a slimmed down FMC which works well without the need for external plugins (FSUIPC). Th-
e 3D model is up there with the best, the cockpit is a custom made on, it is a little basic and similar to the Default A321. Flight model is pretty good, it is a little underpowered, and has a tendency to want to "nose down" during decent but over all its really good. (I have actually made a few tweaks to the config to get it to make real world performance and its a dream to fly now). There is NO FLY BY WIRE though, but for this price you cant complain, and performance and framerates are so high that you can forgive this. These days it's the only airliner I fly! And, set up correctly she will fly from Shannon to New York just like the real aircraft can. I found using the sound from the Aerosoft A319 suits this aircraft the best but the default sound is also very good. Overal-
l a lovely aircraft and great fun to fly.

One of the Best VABB scenery! I really loved it! Only if you add some buildings and the fire depot of the airport it will be a great airport!
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER TFDI 717 EDITION FSX P3D
Joe
Outstanding! Great addition and also great value per dollar. This first officer is well conceived and just as well executed. It isn't frequent to encounter a skilled programmer who also has a good sense of human interfaces and gui. After my experiences with other add-on copilots, I hesitated on this for several weeks. I shouldn't have. It is just what I wanted in this type of add-on. With this I'm learning a lot of the little things I haven't been doing. I can to a sense learn by example, beginning with letting the first officer do almost everything, then taking more onto myself. I've been an amateur flight simmer for 30 years and can complete a flight with any aircraft. But, I've always known I was taking advantage of the limitations of the sim and cutting many corners. This first officer is teaching me new things and adding a lot to my enjoyment of the flights with him. Thank you, Matthew King! Great Job!

Manuel
What a brilliant scenery. Fantastic customer service from Paulo too. I enquired about porting the scenery over to P3D V5 and soon after he sent me personalized files and step-by-step installation instructions. I encountered an issue with a texture and he was very forthcoming with a quick solution. Five stars.
AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT MADRID PROFESSIONAL P3D
Rocio
is a very good airport, with a lot of details, but is the same as the fsx version, I have a gtx1080 and I have 19 fps in approach, aerosoft need to work a lot in performance, the quality in terminal textures is very bad, I do not recommend it.

Indeed impressing surrounds! However pretty bad Framerates - all seems to be based on old FS2000 texture files. Quite disappointing.

Matt
If only there was an option to select 0/5 stars. This scenery is worse than the vast majority of freeware scenery in XP11, so not worth the high price whatsoever. Please don't make the same mistake and waste your money on this scenery. If I could get a refund I would!
ZINERTEK TECH - ULTIMATE WATER X FSX
David
i purchased this after i could not get the Rex 4 texture direct water to show or work properly with fsx steam, i like having neat water textures and with a price of approximately $10.51 USD it is priced fair and looks, moves and shines nicely. i do recommend this to any fsx or fsx steam users who are looking for water textures to use if you can't use or having issues getting rex 4 texture direct water to work or show properly. yo-
u can also use this for water if you dont use rex at all. GOD BLESS!!!!!!!
