I was just looking at my calendar...I just now realized that Hoodoo Pass is 10 years old. Wowzers..... Very Happy

That is a great route. Very Happy

I find it amazing how long MSTS has lasted. It must be one of the oldest version 1 games still running. And we still get a couple of people applying to join the NERR each week - only about 1 in 10 now finish the induction course.

Though I consider Hoodoo Pass one of my "finished" mega projects concerning the virtual world of trains...it was, for me, a passing fancy. I wouldn't think of doing it again under the present software platform. I understand that there are newer sims out there, but I guess I haven't been bit by the bug...again.

I am amazed that NERR is still chugging ahead. I really am. It's a testament of dedication and the love of trains. Pretty cool when you sit back and look at the whole picture. Fads come and go. However in the virtual world new challenges will come up. Some last longer than others. I have noticed that many train-sim related businesses and whatnot have faded into the background or just plain disappeared. But here's NERR.....still going. Glad I was able to be part of a lasting legacy of Train-Sim.

Maybe some day I'll get re-bit by the train bug....who knows. Cool

Have you seen Bob's sister site to this one, Kip? NERW using Railworks TS2013. Looks like a few of the retired folk have come out to create activities for the routes that have been adopted. Maybe someday there will be PRRR-RW and Hoodoo-RW to keep us going!!!
