More 3rd Avenue El

It's with great joy that I announce the release of Fred Barbieri's Third Avenue Elevated Railway for MSTS. Fred's rendition is of the early days (1878-early 20th century) when steam locos ruled and Manhattan and the Bronx weren't as built up as they are today. This is a great route, complete with 0-6-0 saddle tank loco, cars, steam tram and trailers. On the street we have animated horse drawn wagons. At the stations we have people in appropriate 19th century dress. The many stations will keep you busy running this route.

The route and rolling stock are available free at . Go to the Files Library and look for the file . Be sure to read and follow the included installation instructions regarding rolling stock, X-tracks and Newroads.

Great job, Fred. Thanks and Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays to one and all.
