Welcome to Montana Rail Link!
It depicts a real line except for the town of Missoula that I shrunk for performance reasons (the real-life town spans several miles).
The route is located in the northern US, in the Montana Rockies, not far from Marias Pass.
It goes from Paradise MN to Missoula MN.

Payware requirements

  • Marias Pass route from DTG
  • European asset pack from DTG
  • US asset pack from DTG

Some additional payware may be used in scenarios but can be swapped out using RW-Tools or the TS scenario editor.
More specifically, the Amtrak F40PH ‘California Zephyr’ Loco Add-On http://store.steampowered.com/app/208296/Train_Simulator_Amtrak_F40PH_California_Zephyr_Loco_AddOn/

For non-US players, an international version without the Marias Pass requirement will be available soon.
