I like to run at full throttle down the same route. Never mke it though.(I wonder why?)
But when a Big boy derails, it looks so, so weird. ever seen smoke go through the cab?
But I ran a train on a added track on Marias pass(glacier park) off into the gorge.
I have learned you cannot oout run a chem train downhill even at full throttle in a Dash 9 2of em'
Yeah, I've seen one of the Big Boys derail, and it is rather odd, since the locomotive pretty much splits in half.lol
I had a consist of two CN SD75Is and a BNSF SD70ACe on a 40 car intermodal. I put it in Run 1 just to get it coasting a little bit, and then let gravity take over. I got it up to roughly 141 mph before I was an idiot and tried to put it in Run 8 to see what it would do. That just slowed it down to about 85 to 90 mph, so I got out of it. You wouldn't believe the sound it made. It sounded like a jet engine flying by.
Yeah, I've tried downloading that gravity railroad, but I can't figure out what the other two things are that you need to download to get it to work, since there are two XTracks things, and the download link for 3.2 or whatever it was didn't work.
Now my favorite thing is any supercharged locomotive. Just crank that puppy up to full throttle and watch her fly to over 2000 mph.lol (derailments off, naturally)
Well, I was able to make a custom activity where the result should be a spectacular crash, but it turned out really lame. I slammed my CN SD75I into UP 1995 (I don't know why, it's a beautiful locomotive), and all that happened was my cars went through the train on the other track, and sent one of the locomotives on UP 1995's train back into the BNSF SD70ACe behind it. Bottom line, it was lame.
Well, as long as we're on the topic, here's a pic of the locomotive consist I mentioned that I sent flying down the Innsbruck and St. Anton line.
Yeah, I've had something like that happen to me before, on the I-SA, funnily enough. My Golsdorf 380 derailed and then the rest of the train went through me.
I was able to test the safety of a GE P42's cab going downgrade from St. Anton. My engine came off of a curve in front of a tunnel, and the engine piled up on top of the tunnel portal. I got a picture, but I can't figure out how to put it in here.
