After checking my books I have, I couldn't find any information on fuel consumption. Sorry
Bill, that sounds like a good plan. Maybe you can add some sort of random event generator to run with the fast clock, creating something close to a "real world" situation.
Oh that's right! Nothing ever goes "wrong" in the real world, right?
No sweat. This is information I would say is less important and less likely to be recorded. I could probably find it in time booklets and stuff from the local railroads if I can find them. I know I've seen Lowellville P&LE booklets on the bay but I'm not sure it's that important to me. The steel operations need to work together in lockstep but deliveries of fuel and supporting supplies is less important. I can imagine operating scenarios where the new guy failed to correctly hook up the tanker and there's a fuel spill. Now we need another tanker of oil ASAP haha so there's flexibility there and that kind of scenario could be fun. A lone steam high balling down the rails with a tanker full of fuel
