Well done Roger!
You have done better than me, I can just about make it to that first cottage, the speed drops out and I grind to a stand.
So how do you do it, whats the formula?
Cheers
Andy

Hello Andy,having made it to the Summit with 2% Coal left I'm beginning to think it was more luck than Skill.I can make it to the last Water tower,every time,but only just,I think there should be a W/T further down and I'm not seeing it.Two attempts today have failed,as I say at the last W/T,about 1/4 of a mile from Summit,once due to Coal and once when ran out of water,BUT I'M GOING TO TRY AGAIN.

Which New Zealand route is this one, Andrew? Nice screen shots!

Running the Moffat Tunnel Route at present, over the old Rollins Pass.
Then I am going to go into the RE and add some more objects to improve the route for my own personal use. Once done, I will burn the upgraded route to a CD, so I can always install it again, if I decide to take it off.
I have added lots of stuff to most of my routes in this way, mostly populating stations as most routes lack passengers on stations.
