Also,.. I was researching passenger options for this route.

Amtrak has the Missouri River runner. It operates between Kansas city, Jefferson City and St Louis.

So passenger train fans will not be with out options for this route. I will make sure the stations and surrounding areas resemble as close what they are as possible.

I also looked up which rail roads operate in this region and you guys should be happy.

Hi John,
Followed your instructions but could find no update downloads in the update section. Is the problem the system or me (as usual). This route looks fantastic and complicated!

Never mind, John, I found it. !**duh*!!

Actually, AM Arkansas and Missouri Railroad Company only goes as far north as the BNSF line west of Springfield, MO. The KCS, ND, UP, & MAN yards will be fun for switching freight between the different railyards.

There are a lot,... a WHOLE LOT of yards! I love the freight yards and trains,.. for me its a switching paradise. Seemingly endless possibilities.

I posted a new update dated 12/17/2017 for the route. It includes corrections for the PONTrack entities that might be a problem for some. Thanks to qrfan3 for testing the route for these errors, he gave it an "A-OK". Use the link in my signature (Just left click the Digital Railroading image) to get to the website and follow the KCtoStL links to the page with the download files to download the new Update.

Excellent stuff here! I was just in KC a few weeks ago and managed to spend an hour at Santa Fe Junction. Pretty cool stuff there.

The new Amtrak E8's would look good on this route.

That's one of my regular spots for trainspotting, I caught an SC-44 on the Missouri River Runner there once!
