    My problem is when i have the yellow track laying tool straight over the tracks itll eventually deviate from the path.

    The map tiles are out of alignment, as you noted from your start point the tiles will shift a little as you progress. I laid a 4 mile straight stretch that ended up with the tracks about 20 meters. I'm sure there's a method of fine tuning from tile to tile, but I just look between the points and work with what I had.

    I forgot to ask, have you tried RWDecals?

          I've used both, the last I recall rwdecal requires you to use an older version of Google. Watch the videos, and play with it. I even tried laying decals and trying to line them. Ultimately it's all trail and error, have fun!

            the method I use is to look far enough ahead. then kind of "average out" the straight sections if it is more than .3 of a mile. as mentioned before, the Google overlay is crooked at best. good luck!
