Re: The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

Hey all, sorry for the grossly delayed response. Unfortunately I can get easily side tracked with things in real life... often to a fault... Anyway, my reasoning to learning more about the LA&I is because of a "what if" sort of situation for a route I'm developing for Trainz Railroad Simulator. It c...

Passenger Varnish color schemes

Hey all, been a while once again. I have a quick question for you guys. I'm trying to figure out what the colors schemes would have been for Southern and Central Pacific passenger cars between the 1890s and up to around 1905. Also, what were the color schemes for the Los Angeles & Independence RR's ...

Re: The Mojave & Panamint Railroad

For this post I thought I would share some of the custom content I've created for the M&P route. Craig Tice made a full locomotive roster and many of the Baldwin based locomotives are available for Trainz. They were created by a person by the screen name of Togog, however I reskinned them myself to ...

Re: The Mojave & Panamint Railroad

Thanks, Andrew! The M&P is a hair over 37 miles long. And there is actually more SG track when it comes to mileage, but I think the M&P is the more interesting. The map Curtis made for me for this project is pretty big and I figured I would include all the SG lines for operational interest. Curtis a...

Re: The Mojave & Panamint Railroad

Slate Range Pass is about the half way point of the railroad. Here there is a borax mine to be served as well as a yard and turning wye to turn helper locomotives aiding southbound trains. Tice's inspiration for this part of the line came from Montgomery Pass on the C&C/SPNG. And I've attempted to m...

I would like to present to you that project, the Mojave & Panamint Railroad. It is a ...

Re: The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

Wow, only two locomotives? I'm kind of surprised and a little disappointed, but still good to know non the less. For the project I mentioned in my first post, the project I'm working on is set anywhere between 1905 and the 19-Teens. For the earlier part of that time frame (1905) would Central locomo...

The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

Hey all, The LA&O is a railroad I recent discovered and would like to learn more about it. I have a digital project I am worling on and I would like to find some photos of the RR's equipment from around the TOC. (1900-1909) It seems like an interesting railroad, though there doesn't seem to be too m...
