Events went a bit quicker than I had supposed and I believe that before the end of this week the online railroad will be leaving the depot. Think of your model rr on line and full size. I am looking for input as to layout and types of rolling stock. At this time there are well over 100 boxcars, pullmans, ect. Several locomotives, many miles of rails, several trestles and tons of buildings and building materials ranging from 1870s thru to modern. My thoughts were to start with a large city, with skyscrapers, ect and a grand central station. The tracks and trains will wynd thru the world with stops at various eras. 1940s, 1920, 1900 and of course the wild west. Along the way I was thinking of having some farms, a logging operation and mining. Perhaps a fishing village and an indian village. I do have quite a bit of WW11 tanks, planes and trucks so an army depot would work too. There are several cargo ships, ocean liners, sailing vessels, barges and rowboats and canoes, so the ocean and rivers can be properly used. If anyone would like to help lay this out the download is http://host.activeworlds.com/america/web/newfoundland.exe This is not to replace anyones model rr, but if you are online and would like to help build an online rr your help would be appreciated. At the present Ancient Rome is still on this site,but should be going out today or tomorrow. When you download you will have a red icon on your screen. Click that to enter and when you enter use your arrow keys to move about. You will see a green sign that you can click to be teleported to some of the train equipment. By the way, if you would like to build a spur off the mainline to a depot or home of your own. that would be ok also.
