Hello all, this is my first "real" post here.
I have to say, I LOVE the RW&A route. 9.5/10 would recommend to a friend. (in fact, I have many times!)
I love the feel. Love the scenery (Feels like Yooperland, not that I've ever been there), love the variety of industries and cars. I ESPECIALLY love the fact that this isn't a "one railroad route" and that there are lots of different railroads represented by their cars. Love the locomotives (ALCOholic, here), and I love the reskins you can get for the RS. I love the fact you can load dern near every car!
I do have a few critiques, however.
Even though you can load every car, you cannot unload most of them. I love heavy ore traffic, but after 2 trains, you can't do any more ore runs because both the tracks on the dock are full. same with the woodchip cars, the grain cars, and the gons of gravel and coal. I love to switch, but after you pull the empty cars from the paper mill, and replace them with loads, that is it. you can load the empties at N. Adkins, but then you have to leave them there to avoid the all too common scenario on model railroads of "sending coal to the mine".
It would be nice to be able to unload the ore cars on the dock and the chip cars.
It would also be nice to be able to load grain at the Adkins Co-op.
Other than that, great route! I can't wait to try it on full graphics settings after I have built my gaming PC! should allow me to do some night operations since I have to turn dynamic lighting off to keep my frame rate reasonable.
