Trainz 2009 - RWL Route Update

Just wanted to update everyone on my long term project in Trainz called RWL.  It is a scale simulation of a fictional mountian pass mainline route, with spurs, yards, towns and working industries.  In all total, the Route is about 100 scale miles at this time.

Kachinahey was a Junction town which I created when I was doing a demonstration on how to build routes with TRS2006.  I am happy to report that it is still very much an active town.

Yellowstone Supervolcano

I just read a recent issue of National Geographic about the Yellowstone Supervolcano.  I am actually very surprised about how large an erruption would be.  This map shows the extent of the pyroclastic cloud which occured 640,000 years ago.  As you can see, an event of this magnatude would likely wipe out most of the western US.

GPS Cell Phones

A few nights ago I was monitoring a police call for a kidnapping.  Apparently a 30 something year old woman was kidnapped at gunpoint and taken to a house in Buffalo by an unknown person.  A friend or family member of the victim called her cell phone which she had on her, and ended up getting an open line on the phone.  The cell phone stayed open, letting police monitor what was going on and being said as the suspects unknowingly talked about their plans with police listening in.  They also heard what sounded like the victim being beaten.
