  • Fixes to signal issues found in various areas, the changelog will detail the locations fixed.
  • The southward signals at Middle Moncrief and McQuade St. have been fixed to show a slow aspect in certain conditions as per the prototype.
  • Re-alignment and Extension of the track and completion of the wye at Stanton Connection, the track is now DTC territory the 17 miles to the OUC Stanton Energy Center and includes all the track at the coal plant.
  • 2 major industrial parks have been added in the Taft area.
