Trainsimulations/Streamlines (TS/SLI) makes high quality content for Microsoft Train Simulator (MSTS). Back in 2011, they released a DLC pack called "NS Horseshoe Curve Trainsets" in honor of Austin Yoder's Horseshoe Curve route for MSTS. However, as of 2016, the set has been removed.

The reason for its removal is unknown, but the reason why it is important that TS/SLI BRINGS THIS SET BACK is because many models STILL require files ONLY found in said set. nsgp38pack.zip REQUIRES the High Hood GP38-2 SHAPE FILE WHICH IS ONLY FOUND IN THAT SET.

This is WHY THE COMMUNITY LOSES MEMBERS. High quality content is REMOVED and NEVER REUPLOADED, meaning only those who have been around long enough can obtain said products and all people can do is look and never have. Eventually, people give up on looking and trying to obtain it, meaning they walk away from the community altogether. MSTS has been a major part of my childhood and has also influenced the development of other simulators. If the MSTS Community loses enough members, chances are that the simulator may be forgotten altogether.

When simulators are forgotten, it is MORE LIKELY THAT OTHER MODELS WILL BE REMOVED as nobody is around to purchase them. This means that more members leave the community and this vicious cycle continues until nobody is left to support that simulator, so if any new members join, they won't have any resources to turn to for help and they will feel greatly lost and may give up on the hobby all together. BUT THAT WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF WE LOSE.

IF WE WIN, we will be able to save the MSTS Community and the legacy of the game itself for future generations. Preserving our history is important so we can reflect on the successes and learn from the mistakes of the past so we know what to and what not to repeat in the present and the not-too-distant future.

Streamlines has a more than generous repaint policy, allowing users to create their own skins based off of SLI's rolling stock and engines. If Streamlines re-releases this set, it will allow for more repaints, which REQUIRE the original set, which results in more purchases, and thus, more profits for the company. So if we WIN, we will not only be helping ourselves and others, we'll be helping TrainSimulations make higher profits.

So I strongly urge you all to sign the petition to have TrainSimulations/Streamlines Incorporated (TS/SLI) re-release their Horseshoe Curve Set!
