I do have to agree with people here. In general Milepost routes lack 'finishing' details, like other routes have (by that I mean small details). It's a tough area to model as it's really bare to begin with.
I've taken to what I enjoy, tinkering. After like 6 restarts on my changes because of crashes **!!bang!!**, I finally have some saved progress. One thing I think milepost didn't quite capture is how lush and green the area is, go look around the area in street view, it's really green.

Mechanic shop right above the road and below the station, the terrain tools are a nightmare so I used lofts to try and recreate it.

Added some more stuff to around the peace river *former* station, walkways, cars, fences, trees, etc.

Watching a youtube video of a train going by here, I noticed all the large boulders placed along the tracks, so I added them.

The area up the hill. I removed a lot of those crappy car park models, added in cars instead and new buildings where I could find a better fit or they were missing, this area is quite open and bare in real life too.

This should be a Canadian Tire, but there is no Canadian tire model in game, so it's just a generic store. Motel in behind it and then car retailers way in the back

Although it's got it's problems, it's a route I really enjoy.

There you go. Take a nice piece of work and make it nicer. It's called being positive about opportunity and besides it's even fun which is why we got involved to begin with. Good to see.

Can someone who has this confirm for me that the loco brake on the SD40 that comes with this seems to be inoperative? I tried a startup on the installed free roam climbed up the hill just a bit stopped the train with the regular brakes which seem to be working properly set the loco brakes to full on released the train brakes and about 30 seconds to a minute later the train started rolling backwards. Right gauge never move during this.

With the newer scripts they are using I haven't had the Loco brake work in any of the new locomotives using the script. I don't think they are setting the engine bin files correctly to take advantage of the new scripting.

The independent brake and gauges aren't working. Also the dynamic is off too, moving the handle even the slightest amount puts it most of the way on.

Is every train on this route an extra, or are there some timetabled ones?

From the recent Train-Simulator.com article "Big Power, Hard Work" ...

" In recent times, the Canadian National has worked this region with several symbol freights, among which are CN L50251 which works a turn from McLennan, Alberta (some 40 miles south of Judah) to Peace River and Peace Valley, and CN L52751, which likewise works a turn from McLennan, this time to Roma Junction and Roma Yard."
