Public Mohawk Closure

On February 1st, 2016, we are closing the Public Mohawk server to concentrate our efforts on the Depot+ servers. We are going to keep the Public Mojave Server and for now the Public A-line Server open for other operations and to provide a place for new users to learn.

To be sure everyone has an opportunity to experience the Mohawk and Selkirk routes we plan to host sessions on Mohawk that will be open to all Depot members in the future.

New Years Eve Timelapse

Here's a timelapse of our New Years Eve Mojave/Cajon Session.  Almost 7 hours condensed down to 4 mins. Vantage point is overlooking Barstow Yard.

This session maxed out at 31 trains running at the same time over Mojave and Cajon.  A fantastic way to end the year. Thank's to all who joined in.
