Thanks for your interest. The route is progressing and the 'route building' phrase is pretty much complete however a few things still need to be done. The SD40-2 repaint will be released as freeware sometime soon.

It is now planned for the route to include a selection of BC Rail specific rolling stock (built by GreatNortherner). So far a BC Rail 9100 series gondola has been done which is visible in some of the new screenshots below.

Here are 3 more screenshots

now get some C630M's and we are golden! i truly love the look of the BCR, and being that BC is my favourite province to vacation in, it makes it that much better!

this should be interesting for you to read, its a BC rail commission collection:

I got a questions ...

Would the BCIT centrebeams and the skeletons have been used/seen on this section of the BCR , would Hampton Lumber cars been used/seen and what (if any) companies would have shipped wrapped lumber along this section.

BCIT centre beams would of defiantly worked on this section of line. I think most of the skeleton cars were however used on lines north of Prince George so would of not worked on this section of line were often. However at present there are no plans to include either types of cars with the route.

Most lumber cars used on the line appear to be BC Rail ones I am not sure if at the time that Hampton Lumber had a facility on the line so my guess is they would of been uncommon. Some lumber was wrapped and other lumber was not so I guess it depends where it was heading?

Please add SMM crossings before it's too late, many good routes have been messed up (IMO) by those terrible default crossing signals. Other than the signals, track and scenery is amazing, how did you do the nose texture on the BC Rail SD40-2s though?

The best is that Jerry even allows payware developers to use them ("for a little tip into the jar").

Really, the route looks fantastic. !*brav*!

So is there any plans for something like a BCOL Alco C630M or M420W or B36-7 in the future for this route?

Sorry for the lack of updates lately I have been away but I am now back and hoping to release Fraser and Cariboo later this month.

Sometime before the end of the April hopefully.

Never say never but unlikely anytime soon.

For anyone interested a summary of rolling stock which will be included in the route as well as freeware repaints (some still to be released) please see the following pdf file:
http://milepostsimulations.com/rollingstock.pdf (Subject to change)

Anyway a few more screenshots
