Sherman Hill Vintage

This is Sherman Hill backdated to the 1950s. I first started working on this project back in June of 2015 and have reached a state where I believe I can share the route with others. I have taken the default Sherman Hill route and re-imagined the route with both track and scenery changes to be as it was in the mid – late 1950s, just after the Harriman expansion. Although I have spent a long while researching and making the route as accurate as possible, there are most likely a large number of inaccuracies. I hope that I have created a believable experience and any major historical blunders can be overlooked.

I tried to make the requirements list as small as possible, but because of the limited amount of assets for this time period, I had to make use of many different addons. All of the addons are necessary for full scenery to be rendered. I have used assets extensively from all those listed here.

  1. Train Simulator
  2. RSC Sherman Hill
  3. RSC Horseshoe Curve
  4. RSC US Loco/Asset Pack
  5. Clear Creek Narrow Gauge
  6. VNHRR
  7. RWA Lakeside

  • Cheyenne Yard
    • West to Laramie over Track 1
  • Cheyenne Yard – Harriman
    • West to Laramie using the Harriman Cutoff (Track 3)
