Unread postby AARR » Sat Mar 07, 2009 11:19 am

For those of you posting your paper railroads if possible post a diagram/map.

And if you have it a customer list with carloadings.

One of these days I'll jump in too.

He was goofing around one day and just started drawing lines on a map with a ruler, and where ever they connected, he made a dot. :roll: :twisted: :lol: :D

haha matt... actually I planned it out very carefully over a week long period. I think it's a pretty realistic system.

Seriously, looks like you put a lot of thought into it, Y@.

I see only one problem with that Y@, it looks to me like you have the Former CNW line from Green Bay to the Twin Cities, and roughly the position of Eau Claire Wi you run north to Superior/Duluth. The Issue is that I have the MO&W which is composed Primarily of the CNW in Northern WI. No Conflicting routes in the UP though 8)

The line your reffering to is the former Chicago & Great Lakes RR (CGL) that we acquired in 1980 after they filed bankruptcy. So it looks like we have a parallel route. 8)

Also, we are currently in negotiation to buy the abandoned Red River Line from Milwaukee to Madison, WI. If purchased, it will be upgraded to current standards as a secondary route and subdivision.

Y@'s track map looks like KCS merged with DME/ICE!! Did KCS get the bid in before CP???
