"will it overwrite the purchased donner pass route?"
No it will not. This is a separate route base on the original.
A person can actually copy the Scenery, Mixmap, Terrain and Networks folders from this route, into the original Donner Pass Southern Pacific folder to get the scenery there as well.
If someone attempts this, don't try to stuff the folders into the .ap folder, just copy them into the Donner Pass Southern Pacific folder.

Yes, Cajon Pass is used for some of the scenarios as well as scenery items.

Oh thank you :)

You can go from Roseville to Sparks in Quick Drive.

Awesome route, but can you make it possible to go from Roseville to Reno in free drive?

You're welcome and thanks jiggywatt.

Great route thanks!!!!

Okay, thanks!

No back dating. The time period would be approx 1980s.
The Old Dessauer Sep 11, 2016 @ 8:51pm 
So, other than the above noted changes, is the route back-dated to a certain time period? For example, signals changed, trackage added/subtracted?

OMG OMG OMG!!! I think I may move my Oil Shortage scenarios to this!

Thanks Railworks Help Desk.

Feel Free To Tweak The Scenerio's I Made For Donner Redux And Re-Upload Them If You Want.

Great Work. This Route Is Great!

Unless you also downloaded my first standard scenario for it, you should find it under Quick Drive. It was originally supplied with Quick Drive scenarios.
Sneak3042 Aug 15, 2016 @ 4:24pm 
Looks awesome, but for some reason when I hit subscribe to download it I don't see it in my routes.

Why thank you... I think I might know bbaxter. LOL. He doesn't want to admit he thinks I'm a nice guy in public. LOL

Very nice job. Just D/L and ran the workshop version. This is a real piece of work. What started out as a terrible route after the re-do by DTG made into a nice route. This steamshop version makes Donner a great route. My compliments to the author.

No Reno Junction. I found out they didn't use that much. There are a couple of really tight radius curves there that caused some derailments. The right of way that it follows was originally a narrow gauge line.
geomodelrailroader Aug 10, 2016 @ 11:32pm 
did you put in Reno Junction? Reno Junction is where the WP interchanges with SP steam locomotives and stack trains take the Feather Canyon to avoid tunnel clearences and suffacation in the tunnels of Donner Pass.

I didn't even think to do before and after screen shots. It's radically different though. I'll have to see what I can dig up in the next couple of days. Some areas were changed so much, a person would have to look at the location data in the screen shots to figure out what is before and after. I can guarantee if a person has driven the original first they would see a huge difference, especially between Colfax and Sparks, but even between Colfax and Roseville has had a lot of work put into it.
This does not have the Reno Trench, it's from the 70s through 80s in era.
Zero_code_name_Reaper Jul 23, 2016 @ 5:54pm 
No before and after screens?
bnsfes44ac Jul 23, 2016 @ 7:56am 
would this have the train trench in Reno?

@geomodelrailroader, the real Donner Pass during this time frame, only fit single stacks in most tunnels. They had to slowly enlarge tunnels over the years to fit double stacks.
geomodelrailroader Jul 20, 2016 @ 10:36pm 
looks good I hope you redone the tunnels I have Gtrex cars and they won't fit in the tunnels.
ericmopar  [author] Jul 20, 2016 @ 10:12pm 
You are all welcome. As far as money, Right now I just look at it as virtual railway modeling. LOL

I think it is fantastic that you and others are generously investing your time to make TS great for the benefit of all. I am at a point in my career and family that I couldn't pull it off. However, I believe there are other ways to provide support. For example, i buy scenario packs that I am mildly interested in to infuse some revenue into the business. I thought it would be kind of cool to provde a little $$$ for a great route or a series of great scenarios i.e. through Google Wallet. Not sure how you could pull it off without exposing private info such as email address Thoughts?

nice

Could anyone volunteer to do a modernized version of this route? Including crossings with red (not amber) flashing lights and Darth Vader signals?
ReIntegration Jul 19, 2016 @ 10:37am 
Buddy I can't thank you enough for this, seems like the players should be the ones running the show. Sad how DTG don't at least thank or give credit to their loyal players that take the time to do this. Simply brilliant!
JustRight Jul 18, 2016 @ 10:49pm 
No, I think you are quite correct. It may not be possible to publish updates to existing DTG Routes.

Thanks for the link to RWA. Now I can choose if I want to apply the update or keep the separate version.

Well Done.
JustRight Jul 18, 2016 @ 7:03pm 
Many thanks for this update. Must have been a huge amount of work!
After subscribing your update was installed as a completely new route, rather than as an 'update' to the original Donner Pass. Is this what you intended?

Cheers, and thanks again.
ericmopar  [author] Jul 17, 2016 @ 6:46pm 
It's not modernized, so no. I did use a couple of signals from U.S. Loco and Asset pack to fix a couple areas.
dmgibbs1997 Jul 17, 2016 @ 6:44pm 
Does this include the Darth Vader signals?
