Back in the summer of 2001 I set out to create something I knew in my life I could never do for real, to be a railroader. Twenty-seven days later I began a quest to learn the route editor. Laying track, it's as if I could hear the clanking of the hammers against the rail spikes. I could almost smell creole from the ties baking in the hot sun. Before long, the first version of East Metro was completed, released September 14th 2001. And unbeknowst to me, my career as a route builder brought on by the popularity of East Metro, began.

Years passed by and the East Metro was all but forgotten. Weeds had grown over the tracks and much of the route fell into disrepair. Considered old and outdated, the namesake East Metro was hardly uttered but by a few faithful. In recent days the fate of whom we affectionally call the 'old gal' was put to me, can the East Metro live again? I had my reservations.

In late January the work began. East Metro was done at a time when most of our modern techniques we use to build routes, weren't even an idea. But once again the hammers crashed down on old nail heads. Terrain was removed or reshaped in an effort to make the EMRR natural in appearance without the use of DEMs. The mostly default MSTS library the old East Metro relied on was removed and replaced with my own library. And while the old East Metro had been detailed for its day, today the scenery is much more dense in every category that can be imagined. In places, even the track has been relaid for optimal switching and AI train running. Such is this rebirth for the "old gal" that it is suffice to say the "old gal" is back!
