FAQ

It's 2013, and the NPSF has purchased a secondary line in New Mexico from the BNSF. The NPSF has a substantial subset of all modern railroad traffic running across its well maintained route through the desert, and the city of Albuquerque. Passenger trains from Amtrak and RailRunner compete for track space with unit trains, mixed manifests, coal drags, ethanol trains, and local switch runs. The NPSF is proto-freelanced, based on the practices of BNSF. The layout is double decked, and the desert scenery is 85% complete. The railroad uses NCE DCC with radio. Trains are dispatched via verbal train orders, and local frights use switchlists to direct car movements.
