Now, 3DTrainstuff added this section of Southern California for train enthusiasts everywhere. Santa Fe was the first company to use this particular area all the way back in 1913. Originally, the grade was about 3%. Back then, shorter trains were the norm, so the areas stayed in the same shade all the way to the 1970s.
Around that time the longer he be nine car piggybacks required the area to be re-graded. Also, the original track included a sharp 10 degree curve, which was removed. In 1966, Southern Pacific added what they called the “Palmdale Cutoff”, another track west of column pass that added another way to get goods from Northern California into the Los Angeles basin.
On top of adding the new track, 3DTrainstuff added new locomotive models as well. There is that Amtrak's 60-foot express car, 57-foot PFE and SFR Reefer cars, as well as a freight set from Boeing. It includes the skybox, fuselage, and tail cars. Why run the risk of flying the plane where it needs to go? We all know that the train is the best way to get things around!
