*mods please move to the correct fourm sub if needed*
For a upcoming project in MSTS project of mine, I'm looking for any info that might be of use to me in aid in doing the project such as photos and the like. since I live in Iowa I would need some detail structure photos and lineside photos as well, I plan on starting in DC terminal working my way south on the RF&P as well as the VRE red and Blue lines. I was also thinking about DC metro but I know most of the line that Follows the RF&P is under ground, what as a railfan can anyone suggest here?

I saw on facebook that you were not getting any response to this thread. While I do know what CSX is, I don't know what "MSTS", RF&P", or "VRE" are. However if it has to do with the CSX, I would be no help anyways.

Good Luck!
