    Rick,

    I enjoy your Monon route. In the period of 1954-1956, I rode the Thoroughbred both ways,
    Louisville to Chicago and it was an impressive route. As a CSX employee, responsible for
    signal...

    ORTS renders the distance, track to forest objects differently from MSTS. In the MCOA2 route I had
    a spot where the trees were rendering on the track in ORTS, but correctly in MSTS. The...

    Thanks Denis, at 81 I can allow being a little slow, and no sooner than I had hit the post button, I remembered that. Downloaded
    and installed into my ORTS only setup where I have a couple of...

    Okay folks. I had no problem loading it into a ORTS only set up that I use for my MRS routes but then it looked like the
    train was running on tracks of water. Ergo, I did not have Scale Roads or...

    Rick & Geoff have the right idea. The largest yard I have ever used was about 10
    tracks and it was off a simple ladder at each end. I did go beyond that on the
    Clinch-Appalachia route that I...

    I have downloaded, but not yet installed the route - I'm pretty familiar with the real line,
    being retired from CSX signal department. Having said that, every route that I have

    I just finished doing that with my Virginian route (started by Simon). I had included the N&W from just west of the jugneck
    curve to Roanoke since it parallels the Virginian and after the merger...

    The site exists, but the language is Greek which I don't understand. However, most of the

    Colleagues,

    Since it will be another 4-6 weeks before I am upgraded, I decided to follow EricF's comments and copy my install
    discs. Of my original MSTS set, now 18 years old+, the first disc...

    Guys,

    Looks like I'll be led kicking & screaming onto TSRE. Several issues here I wonder about. How do you copy registry entries.
    I currently have MSTS installed, along with 4 clones on a Win-7...

    All this seems strange to me. I have never done any foreign line routes except two in South America that I am piddling
    with in between sessions on the Virginian. The only discrepancy I have...

    When I went to work in the R&T department at Southern in 1965, steam was long gone, except
    that soon we had the very well done SR steam program that continued until 1994 or so. Two

    I don't see that as a problem, just a preference. There will always be dinosaurs like me that insist a route should
    run in MSTS or ORTS, and there will be others that want the better detail etc. ...

    Oliver,

    Detailing an urban area, in my opinion, does not do much to help the route.
    I would limit detailing to no more than 1 city block left or right of the track.
    Then add a scene blocker...

    I received 2 routes last week from Diter Oliveira (hope I spelled it right) which are excellent
    renderings of a MRS Logistica route and a mostly abandoned old narrow gauge route. The...
