Seems good, but the big drawback is that signals are not visible.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UkDjF2ZCqM" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - Train Simulator 2014 HD EXCLUSIVE: UP Big Boy 4014 Starts 27 Car Train Up 1.5% Grade (Sherman Hill)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgG26DwElck" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - Train Simulator 2014 HD EXCLUSIVE: Union Pacific Big Boy 4014 Excursion Over Sherman Hill (6 hours)
With UP restoring 4014 into working order, I felt that playing around with her on a 6 hour excursion around her home base of Sherman Hill (Cheyenne to Laramie) and back was appropriate. The hope is that one day, we will see excursions like this in real life. I know this video is long, so here is a time table of contents so that you can skip to the parts you wish to see:
0:00 - 22:00 - #4014 pulls out of the roundhouse via the turn table and performs yard shunting to build her 27 car excursion consist at Cheyenne.
22:00 - 38:00 - #4014 Backs out of Cheyenne Yard with her consist onto the mainline track 1.
38:00 - 48:00 - #4014 pulls her train from the switch junction into Cheyenne Depot to pick up passengers, where she poses for a few photos before departing.
48:00 - 1:34:00 - #4014 departs Cheyenne and beings the battle up Sherman Hill on the mainline train 1, which has a grade of 1.5%.
1:34:00 - 1:41:00 - #4014 pulls into Granite siding to take a breather, and allow local railfans to snap more pictures of her.
1:41:00 - 2:07:30 - After a brief stop at Granite siding, #4014 starts her 27 car train from a dead stop on the 1.5% grade, demonstrating her power as she continues up towards the summit of Sherman Hill.
2:07:30 - 2:33:00 - #4014 finally reaches the summit of Sherman Hill and begins her high speed (65 mph) decent towards Laramie.
2:33:00 - 3:12:00 - #4014 arrives at Laramie, unloads passengers, and poses for pictures before proceeding to wye her train for the return run back to Cheyenne.
3:12:00 - 3:47:00 - #4014 backs her train into Laramie Depot to pick up her passengers before departing for the march back up Sherman Hill via track 3 which has a slightly more gentle grade of about 0.8%.
3:47:00 - 3:58:00 - #4014 rejoins the mainline at Hermosa, and continues over the Summit before splitting from the mainline again past Dale.
3:58:00 - 4:34:00 - #4014 continues downhill on track 3, cruising at 65 mph until she reaches Speer, where she takes advantage of the water tower for a quick drink.
4:34:00 - 4:48:00 - After refilling her tender with water, #4014 departs and continues towards Cheyenne.
4:48:00 - 5:00:00 - Arriving at Cheyenne, #4014 drops off her passengers.
5:00:00 - 5:51:00 - #4014 spends the remaining hour switching her passenger cars back to their exact original positions (using the balloon track [5:12:00]) before coming to a rest on the refueling track.

Thanks for watching =) Hope you enjoyed this video (movie).

Enjoy the ride and the beautiful California Coast before we transition into the urban sprawl of Southern Los Angeles. This train follows the real life schedule of 579 (http://www.amtrak.com/ccurl/536/483/Pac ... 0113,0.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), and with the extra schedule padding, we depart up to 5 minutes early from each station. All aboard:
