As part of my professional efforts, I get to keep the "trash" that I want, basically my own notes, which are nearly identical to the notes I would take if I was preparing to do a new route -- so---.
The next plan is to do the Nashville Terminal in three stages.
1. Complete all tracks, rolling time back to 1955 as much as possible. Then set a
backup of this aside.
2. Complete all necessary roads and basic scenery, i.e. those dummy roads and road
transfers that I like to use. This route will be released as-is to the masses so it
can be used as is, or as a basis for someone wanting to do the S&NA (North) or
the old Peavine, since I have no plans to do those. It could also be used for a
start on parts of the former Tennessee Central or the Bruceton Sub.
3. Finish the route in great detail, mainly to keep as a reference, but release it as a
finished route which can be used for switching activities etc.
Now the fun part. I found, when I did the RMD-1 that I was able to copy into the
RMD-1, the world tiles that made up ThreeForks, then go in and delete any track connected items and do a rebuild. It worked quite well, and I did the same thing
at DeerLodge when I put together the RMD-3. I want to do 3 of the 5 subdivisions
that radiate out from Nashivlle, and what better way to insure accuracy than to use
the same terminal for all 3, only in this case it is easier, since I am going to use all the terminal, I need only use RouteRiter to make a copy of it and then add new tiles to
that copy. Obviously some scenery will be readjusted when DEMEX is run, but that is the least of my concerns. I will use the 2nd of the three items mentioned above to do this as it will not have any track connected items in it.
