Your power today is a single MP-15AC and you have a long hopper cut pick up at the Portland Cement plant. The hoppers alone will be heavy, but you also need to pick up a tank car cut. Your years of train handling will be useful today as you attempt to keep these cars rolling without slipping out. Dispatch has given you permission to occupy the main for the moves. You will see some westbound trains, but nothing eastbound, but that doesn't mean you can tie up the eastbound main all day!
"PFE Priority"

and previous activities (original 10) and ATSF Special installed

please request

A California distributor has overseen the loading of 11 PFE box cars, destined for customers in Phoenix. Now the shipment is in your hands. Normally you would be sitting in sidings, waiting for power, waiting for the trim set to build your train, but not today. Those 11 PFE's have given your train priority status, so no sitting around on this run.

"Slow Freight to Mojave - Part 1"

you must have..

You left Los Angeles early this morning after some trouble getting your 3rd unit to load, but all units are cut in and pulling fine. After a stop at West Colton for some Kaiser loads, you are ready for the haul up Cajon. The pass is dry, so adhesion should be good, as long as none of your power lays down on the grade. Your power for the run is three U30C's and two tunnel motors. No helpers. When you have reached the north limit of this route, you can continue your climb up Cajon on the 3DTrainstuff's "CAJON PASS" Route with "SLOW FREIGHT TO MOJAVE - PART 2"

"Riverside Industrial - Blue Monday"

you must have..
The West Colton route, Packs 1, 2, 3,& 4
and all previous activities shown above

please request



Why does it seem like it always rains on a Monday? At least you are inside the cab. Your crew doesn't have it so good. You are now sitting on a spur just off the Riverside Industrial lead, watching one of your crewmen setting the hand brake, and getting very wet. You've just finished dropping 3 box cars, and you'll begin heading back towards the lead track. The 'LO' hoppers on the siding to the north need to be dragged up to the old Colton yard, backed in to another cut of hoppers, and all taken to the West Colton receiving yard. Other than getting traction on wet rail, this Monday presents no unusual challenges. The diamond is getting hot, so when dispatch says go...GO!

"Riverside Industrial - Hard Tuesday"

you must have..
The West Colton route, Packs 1, 2, 3,& 4
and all previous activities shown above
please request



Well, the hard part is that it's after lunch, and you still have to go out to Riverside, and then up to Loma Linda. After a move on the Riverside Industrial lead, you will head east and pick up two cuts of box cars at Loma Linda. There is lots of action today and dispatch is working the board trying to keep everyone moving.

"A Day on the Santa Fe"
you must have..
The West Colton route, Packs 1, 2, 3,& 4
and all previous activities shown above & the W&K Autorack Set.
please request

Now Available

The era of 'open' autoracks is coming to a close. Only a few can be seen in trains and railyards as their replacements arrive, putting them out of service. A cut of loaded auto carriers came in late last night, and the night crew switching the yard didn't get to it. The auto facility crew is ready to unload them. One of your jobs today is to move them over there so the crews can get started. After you drop off the autoracks, there are a couple more scheduled moves to perform. A cut of tanks to the B yard and a 25-car transfer cut will be going to the old Colton yard. The power your using today are a pair of GP30's. They are fueled up and ready for a day on the Santa Fe.
