Wupper Express 11
Could someone tell me how flexible the Trackwork is at the throat of the major stations. A while back, before a HDD failure, I had Version 8. Although the scenery was excellent, IMHO the route was spoiled by inflexible trackwork at most of the main stations, ie no single or double-slip type turnouts.making large parts of the route difficult to get to. while ladder type arrangements were fitted, these were mostly single ladders, preventing operations where 2 commuter trains could be changing say from UP FAST to UP SLOW, while the opposing train could be going from DOWN SLOW to DOWN FAST, to give just one example. Any help or advice would be valued. kitnkat.
RE: Wupper Express 11
no major changes on existing trackwork on sections of Wupper 11 that were already part of earlier releases. So no ladders of double-slips you miss when comparing the route with the prototype.
The route however is huge, and I understand why the makers would shy back from making such major changes to the existing .tdb, bearing in mind how easily MSTS .tdb and tsection.dat files can get corrupted when making changes to nodes on routes that have their interactive objects already installed.
Wupper 11 adds some trackage and expands the route, including making the Wupper Schwebebahn driveable.

Thanks (belatedly) for the reply Swissie. Due to family problems have not spent much time with MSTS lately. If you had the Riviera Express or the LGVMed Routes you will see at the main stations the trackwork is quite flexible and cannot understand why the Wupper could not have had similar layouts in the design.That aside, being able to drive the Wuppertal in MSTS is incredible. Is it possible to obtain Eleven in spanned zip form as I am stuck on dialup at present and any thing over 50Mb is iffy at the best of times.Anyhow, Happy New Year to all who use these fora. kitnkat
