I figured I would throw my hat into the ring as well. I've developed some small additions/changes to the route.

Assets used so far:
-Stevens Pass
-RCAP
-Virtual New Haven

I may release it once I'm finished. Right now, Waterton is the only area I've changed.

More work has been done. The route's progressing nicely.

Ever since the RW&A became N&W property back in 1960, and then NS property in 1982, many things have changed.

Atkins has been abandoned since 1978. The people moved away after business had dwindled in 1972, and thus the Atkins passing siding was retired.

The west end of Waterton Yard now has switches so trains can get in and out.

Waterton also has another engine shed built between the mainline and the town.

Waterton also has had a new industry settle in, bringing the need for another spur.

The coal tower and water pipe were removed in 1966, after steam completely exited service.

It looks like you extended the yard lead so it isn't a dead end. I've been meaning to do that myself, same with the end of the yard being a regular ladder. Is there a lead on the other end as well?

I have a bit of advice. Since the last post was months and months ago perhaps you would be better served by sending a private message or a e-mail to the individual since you have no idea if A. he's even still active or B. working on this modification.
