Thanks Rick. A little delayed reaction on my part. Sorry.
Just built a new computer. Been kind of a pain in the butt getting things running. https://i.imgur.com/eXPZwHn.jpg
I have a new 1TB M2 drive and I've been moving things around and getting errors. My fault for not paying attention to what I'm doing. That and a head cold from heII.
VSL is back on line.

Hi, Randy.
Post #164 is AlCo?


No it's a General Electric U28B (ex Burlington No. 111 built in December 1966). As delivered it was in the 'Chinese Red' and Grey colour scheme.

Thanks, Rob.
I tend to interpret that "gray" as "pearl". Classic ATSF, which is not black-yellow.
About red livery, I was impressed some days ago by red with checkmate black-white frame.

Sorry For off top, but what "U" means then? (I aware about GP, SD, E, F, SW already)

"U" means Universal.
They had their place but not as a local switcher.

Did you know that a missing " in the ref file will cause TSRE to CTD without any error messages?
It just stops right there.

Static (
Class ( "RR Buildings" )
Filename ( StorageShedXM1272.s )
Align ( None )
Description ( "Old Boxcar Storage Shed )

Boy was I freaking out.

This is kind of obscure but I found this little bank at: http://maxcommunityc...businesses.html

Here's the story.

This is the only brick building in town, it's also the only cement sidewalk in town. Curb and all.

This is how I remember it looking in the mid 60s when I went to stay with the grandparents in the summer.

Spent many a dime/quarter in this place.
I'm still working on this version.
