The ATSF Berkshire reskin pack should be out shortly. I think that these use the NKP.

No they use the freeware PM berk here on RWA. You also need to make sure you download the update for it or the repaints wont work.

Thanks all for the bridge pics, albeit in Dallas. Surely the Fort Worth bridges were much the same, and I don't think my renditions are far off. At least some of them.

I have a lack of knowledge of the area's history, but I would assume those bridges no longer stand, correct?

You assume incorrectly.......at least as of 2016 the pic with the kayaks is one of the bridges built in 1916.

I was referring to the bridges in Fort Worth, however that is some good information. Thank you for letting me know Buzz! !!howdy!!

Yea, I found a pic showing the four bridges. So indeed the four rairlroads did not build a shared bridge.

Kind of nice to know that I did it right on my route.

I've been working on the areas north of the Trinity River, among them the stockyards and Armour and Swift Meat Packing. The shortline Fort Worth Beltway Railway was incorporated to handle switching in and around the stockyards.

some notable markers on the route

A supposedly two-year project has taken much longer, and I'm only done scenicking about 80% of everything from the T&P tracks north. I think I'll release a 'north phase' beta in a few months, which will include all the trackwork for the entire route, but the south part won't be scenicked.

Note that the St Louis & San Francisco RR (Frisco) took over the St. Louis & Southwest and the Fort Worth and Rio Grande. The 8th Ave. Yard I've called the Frisco Yard, but perhaps it wasn't called that in 1925.
