I definitely will get it,just need to wait for the rush to ease off a bit. I am always thankful for an American prototype route.

I would presume later today. Hope we didn't melt Rick's servers using that download manager thing. Just have to keep checking his website I guess.

Looks like Rick got things going again....

From the G Trax home page.....
"March 30, 2012
Durango & Silverton
Available Again
I ditched the automated reply system and have returned to the good old manual reply for the time being. I tried it and got D/L speeds of mid-500 to mid-700 kbps. As always, contact me if you have any issues.
Rick"

This is a wonderful route and I am sure everyone will enjoy what it has to offer.

Oh.... my....

This is worth every dollar. I think we are missing another big plus here. For $15 you essentially get RW's first real narrow gauge tool box (yes I know about PP, but this is much much much more).

Turn off F4, turn on F3, click on the coupler icon at the top of the Driver's Guide, then click where you want to couple.

You know, I've been very busy with track and such, but I should have time tonight if I can just pull myself away from US Bath-Templecomb.

(taken from the Durango Observer *!!wink!!* )

I want to inform you that the Durango & Silverton route will recieve its first update soon (probably tomorrow).

Rolling-stock:
- Added a D&SNG open observation gondola by Larry Goss with dynamic numbering, passenger characters and a passenger view.

Changes:
- Added the observation gons to each consist in the "DtoS" series of scenarios and to the Free Roams.
- Added 13 seated and standing characters.
- Added revised user manual; user manual, route information and loco information now also in German language.

Fixes:
- Fixed the "floating caboose" bug, which was caused by improper bounding box values.
- Fixed a stretch of bad trackwork and terrain mismatches between MP 487-488.

Here a pic of the new open observation gondola:

We will continue to release more updates in the future. Thank you all for supporting the project.

Nice open air car this is, very typical for a museum railroad.
Very thoughtful to incluse tourists as well, I think we haven't seen those yet in TS2012.

Those passenger characters, are they still or is there some small animation, like waving, head movements?
Does the sight seeing gondola have a passenger view?

Looking forward to the update. No cab for the steamer yet? So we have to make do with Ehsdperla's surrogate cab for a little while longer.

These characters are completely new, static and have a pretty high quality. Yes, the open gondola has a pv.

The K-27 will probably never recieve a 3D passenger view.
However, there might be another ng loco with cabview coming someday in the future. No promises

Of course. As long as no original files are redistributed.
