Hi;

In the file library now is my physics upgrade pack for the equipment included with the Bridgton & Saco River route.
This pack implements straight vacuum braking on all of the B&SR engines and cars (as per prototype) along with other advanced Open Rails physics and steam parameters.

The download page is here:

Here are a few shots from the great little route with the new physics in operation.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for all your work to make the B&SR rolling stock even more authentic.

Makes an awesome little route even more historically correct.

Paul sent me a pre-release version of his improved Physics and Vacuum Brakes Package about 6 months ago and it is GREAT!
If you're running the B&SR, you need to get this!

Hello,
All I get when downloading the physics zip is a PDF file(?).

Bob,

The actual source for the B&SR files is at sendspace. Address is posted in the PDF about a third down the page.

Click the following and you will be there.

Hi Paul,

I've downloaded the package and am already having fun with the new braking style! Thanks for putting it together!

Not sure if this is the best location for this question, but is there a place I can get the latest version of RouteRiter to fix the issue with #7's wheels? (without signing in to "Digital-Rails.com")
I'm running windows 8.1 and can't seem to get the Github repository version to work.

Thanks,
Peter
