    Bridge is looking good, but would a bridge on a single track line be that wide ? Would it be better to narrow it to just wider than the edge of the track ballast ? Or is the width about right for US...

    I sometimes see this when a scenario is saved then restarted many times. It's as if the platform gets repopulated on top of the original passengers everytime it is opened. If you were to exit and...

    You could try to recreate the crossing where it used to be. You have nothing to lose. Have a good look at the main line track where the crossing was and check carefully for the small red triangles...

    Yes,

    I have to agree that giving an easily accessible option to revert to the old 2014 gizmo does display a certain lack of confidence that the "new improved" 2015 gizmo will be well received.

    Hi Otto,

    Do you mean to say you prefer the old style gizmo to the new ?

    I prefer the new gizmo, the 3 red/blue/green axis rotation rings are a bit further away from the central yellow sphere,...

    It might be that you have zoomed in too far and there is no image at your resolution.

    Try zooming out and try again.

    When this happens, a coupling breaks and the locomotive continues on alone it represents a very significant deviation from reality, in that our trains do not feature continuous brakes.

    Well, the fault could be either with the locomotive, the wagon, or (unlikely) something wrong with the track at some particular location.

    I am not familiar with this route either, but it sounds like you need to start from the beginning and make your own scenario.

    Place your train at the starting point, then go into the timetable...

    Hijacking this thread a little,

    On the MSTS default signs I always thought that the number size was too small (not easy to read while passing by at 60 mph) so increased it as big as I could so...

    Extensions to Old Routes

    The recent "how to distribute an extension to another MSTS route" was closed a bit too early for me !

    I think I have found the answer.

    It is all to do with the "Eastings" and "Northings" in the RouteProperties.xml file.

    Hi Otto,

    Yes, I found that yesterday and thought ah-ha, that's it ! So changed the Bath-Templecombe 51.38150, -2.36690 to my desired 51.0235, -3.0475, saved the properties file and restarted...

    What I have done in the past is to make a short (say 10 metre) straight platform section, then have MSTS automatically place them alongside the track as gantry items.
