    Powatan Arrow at Walton, VA

    Let us imagine that the train seen in earlier posts has negotiated the line
    along the New River and rounded the north leg of the wye at Walton. Now
    it is getting into the teeth of the grade up to...

    Guys,

    From what I have seen the route is really good. The errors that are there will either be eventually
    fixed by Peter, or someone else. It would be much more constructive if others fix some...

    I guess I am an old dinosaur at 81, but I still use RE to create the route, and AE to make the
    activities. However, I use ORTS to check the route, Time brings change and MSTS showed up
    in 2001,...

    Oliver2,

    There is also a issue in ORTS with forest objects (trees) coming too close, or even on, the track. I have noticed
    this starting west from Avery. Check your personal messages, I told...

    I have to wonder what Oliver2 used to create these archives. When I unzip the zip files, I get a series of
    files with extensions of .001, .002, .003 etc. The other zip file contains shapes &...

    I want to thank Oliver for enhancing this route. As you all know, Lukas Lussar was able to take my piddling results and
    create almost unbelievable routes from them. To do that, he did not do...

    Found the issue. The Global directory had somehow been moved to a subdirectory of another. I happened to

  8. Error, what is missing, what is best recovery

    Earlier today, I did some work on the Virginian route, saved it, and backed it up.

    Now when I go into RE and select ANY route, I get this message that I have never
    seen before?

    The W&A sub. was an early route. As I recall the author created a version early in the game and then
    later extended it.

    I have the Chattanooga sub. in my "hope to do" list and I have digitized...

    Paul has it right except for one detail. If there is a linked item, such as a signal, linked to one of the pieces
    you need to fix, you will get all sorts of nasty messages. Bottom line, delete the...

    I have included at least 3 of the old towns near Oak Hill. Lochgelly & Summerlea are there. I can only guess, from
    topo maps, where the mines actually were, but they will be close. Not near...

    Further Progress

    Here are 3 images along the N&W as the Powhatan Arrow heads east. For the

    derailment, etc. on the N&W anywhere between...

    Virginian Route in progress.

    Friends,

    Simon Van de Laak started this route and did a great job detailing the area
    around Mullins, WV and Glen Lyn, VA. Then he passed it to me to complete
    and I have added quite a lot, and...

    I use transfers extensively to simulate the sub-ballast & ballast shoulders under mainline track.
    I didn't create the textures, but there are pairs of each type. One has semi-transparent,...

    Modern route?

    I am working on the Virginian and when complete (though I don't plan to detail it too much) will cover
    all of the VGN west of Roanoke, and the N&W between Roanoke & Blue Field. It will include...

    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...

    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
