Yup, I have run through the tutorials and even did the Horseshoe Curve on my first evening of playing. Did one easy scenario of switching. Can't wait to try some more. The learning curve just comes from learning the new lingo and terms that are used in rail operations. Still, that's why I'm interested in it!
In other news, since I live in Dallas, I have come to learn that we apparently have a pretty good railroad museum here that is about to get better. The Museum of the American Railroad
is about to move from its Fair Park location, to a purpose built facility up in Frisco, Texas (Yes of the San Francisco Railroad). The new facility is amazing with a turntable and all. One thing I didn't realize how great of an asset this place is, is the fact that the limited space at Fair Park currently only allows them to display the 4-8-8-4 Big Boy, the EMD F-7 in it's original Santa Fe Southwest Chief colors, the DD40X and a GG1. That's just what they have room to show right now at the old location. Have no fear though, if you check out their website, which I have linked above, you will see that the new facility will be beyond amazing and accommodating. Not to mention that the new museum is a spur off of a very active BNSF North to South line.
Anywho, if I know that there is more to that, but I would rather let the website speak for itself. I also have pictures from when I went to the museum almost a year and a half ago. It was amazing to see what was there.
