One of the many employed buses used for shuttling us less fortunate people from the parking lot.

Thanks for the advice Dillion,I use it sometimes and it becomes worse. And in the the spur in real life the tracks aren't even really used so they are all messed up.And I have spoken to 2 real engineers that work for Conrail and CSX that no rail is straight like most people think.

Take for example this photo:

The turnouts and switches need work. I'm all for out-of-shape tracks on straightaways.. but if a real engine were to go over this stand, it would cause some serious damage.

 

And.. I'm not most people. I know tracks aren't perfect, but they wouldn't pass inspection if they were in the state some of the turnouts in this route is.

 

And PLEASE do not think I am downing this route. I think it really fantastic, don't get me wrong!

Nope non takin,I understand the turnouts are pretty blah,but I also mad most of the route when I wasn't very good so it does need to be done a little better. But your criticism is a lot better than those at auran where they pretty much just tell you how crappy it is.

Hello,

 

 

I really enjoyed. Very accurate. Just for the record the name for Monmouth Park Siding that comes off of the NJCL is called the Monmouth Running Track.

 

 

 

 

Once Again I really Enjoyed it.

 

 

Eric
