    CNO&TP 3rd district

    Collelagues,

    Colleagues,

    At the request of Dudley Evans, I am finishing up his 3rd district of the CNO&TP, the northern
    part of which will become the southern part of my 2nd district. To accomplish this, I...

    I should point out that this stretch around Cumberland Falls was single track in the late 60s
    but when it was constructed (1961-1963) the R/W was made wide enough for double track
    and by the early...

    I'm going to do the whole route in 3 parts to the extent that I can. I have doubts
    about how popular it would be as there is not much online industry. It was, and is,
    pretty much a bridge route...

    Robert,

    The Rat Hole was quite a line. Although I was hired 2 years after the various line changes
    were completed that took out all but the 4 tunnels that remain, you could still see where
    many...

    Rat Hole

    The first district did not have a particular name. The 2nd district was the Rat Hole. In the very beginning there was one
    tunnel north of Danville, on the segment just north of High Bridge. It...

    Two new routes in the works

    Colleagues,

    A friend in Tennessee asked me to check over, rehash as necessary, and then release his version
    of the CNO&TP 3rd district, Oakdale, TN to Chattanooga. I have in the works, my own...

    I don't use scale rail. What I do use a lot is M-tracks because the turnouts are accurate for
    US routes. And you run into some oddities. For example, I have completed the main stem
    mainline and...

    I use dynamic track only as much as is absolutely not avoidable. And the comment about the local tsection.dat file is correct, but
    I never have merged two routes. What I have done, is used a route...

    I haven't got the route (yet) but this idea of "historical significance" is a good one. There are a

    Maximum gradient change

    I believe this topic has been kicked around over the years but in laying track for

  13. Additional items

    Friends,

    Originally there were four branches and one mainline off the mainstem. The Bardstown
    branch departed the mainline about mile 22 and extended east for several miles with the

  16. L&N MainStem, 1st & 2nd Subs. (Louisville to Nashville)

    I started on this line a week ago and have made passable progress having

    I don't find high enough resolution with .hgt data, so I will continue to use the USGS
    data and DEMEX as long as I can. Soon be going to Win-10 from Win-7 though and that
    might seal my fate.

    Any of you that have downloaded the Louisville Terminal should discard it and

    It has been a couple of weeks since I obtained any data from USGS but then it worked fine.
