Run8 BNSF Seligman Sub West is now available CLICK HERE
AMTRAK'S SOUTHWEST CHIEF #3 CROSSING THE COLORADO RIVER INTO CALIFORNIA! THE RUN8 BNSF SELIGMAN SUB WEST ROUTE IS NOW AVAILABLE!

The Run8 BNSF Seligman Sub West route is now available! The route is roughly 150 miles long and extends the Run8 network from Needles, CA to Seligman, AZ. The route features a double mainline with seperated grades at various places and there are several large industries that are served by locals along the route including the massive Kingman Industrial Park east of Kingman. Amtrak's popular Southwest Chief's #3 and #4 will run at 90MPH in many places and they also change crews at Kingman, AZ. Yes, this may be another desert route but it is an extremely scenic one that runs along the historic highway US Route 66 which spans from the breathtaking Colorado River crossing to the beautiful Crozier Canyon and the scenic Pinon Forests beyond. Oh and one more important thing, the many, many cool features that only Run8 can deliver!

As you know. you the customer is the most important thing to us and because of that we are putting a lot of cool things that you have requested over the last few years into version 2 of Run8. However it is taking us much longer than we anticipated so we have decided to move the release date out to September or October 2016. This will give the guys much needed breathing room which will help us get things right. In the mean time we are going to release some more DLC for version 1 (which will work in v2) including some Amfleet cars, smooth sided wellcars (old style and new). and some viewliner cars. And again as always we thank you for your support and patience.

Just an update regarding the tunnel motors and v2. John has decided to hold off the release of the tunnel motors and SD45s till after v2 is released as he does not have time to support a v1 release of them at this time. And work continues on v2 and when we get close to the release we will put a video together showing exactly what we have in store for our users. And yes, version 1 content will be compatible with version 2 content. And as always we thank you for your patience and your support and we assure you that the wait will be worth it!

 

January 5th, 2016

We hope everyone had a great holiday season and to start out the new year we now have a new order processing system in place that sends out download links shortly after placing an order for one of our products. So no more waiting for a link! And look for more news on version 2 coming here in the near future. Thank you for your support.
