    Paint Dot Net.
    Copy the textures from the caboose pack to any model that's close.

    John,

    Nice shots. Looks real.
    You know, those ATSF units should probably be run without ditch lights.
    Ditch lights weren't mandated until after everything had BNSF dirtying it up.

    Excellent write up and a great idea.
    There's a lot of information out there but it's like it's a secret nobody wants to share.
    Maybe we need a howto section.

    Yeah, I see so many screenshots that would be so much better if only they would fix the exhaust.

    Neil,
    I just went to the shapes folder in Can99v3 with Shape File Manager and saw that a lot of the .s files are uncompressed.
    If I were you I would do the same and compress the ones that aren't.

    Arno,

    In the terrain window choose the fixed height tic box and set the height to a number below the height of the bridge. Back the size down to 1 or 2.
    That should get you started.

    There is a monon.ref file in the shapes folder of the route that may work.
    Rename csxwasubdivision.ref and then copy the monon.ref file to the root folder and rename it.
