    As a progress report, I have almost completed the Milwaukee road track between Miles City
    and Harlowton. This covers two subdivisions. I am going to include the little bit of BNSF
    (or NP in those...

    Colleagues,

    One other detail. If anyone does grab one of the routes I will upload, and wonders about the occasional tree
    sitting on the track, these have a purpose. I put them there in the...

    I hate to be critical Chris, but this true railfan has three favorites. First the L&N, then the Milwaukee
    Road & the Southern.

    Colleagues,

    My suggestion about one person working on a route at a time is merely because I have no clue as to
    how to merge routes, but if one or more individuals want to collaborate and know how...
  5. New file category in the MSTS routes genre

    Colleagues,

    I'm not getting any younger and the loss of Don Karch 2 years ago, and my subsequent
    completion of his Mega-Colorado route got me to thinking. Thus Nels has agreed to
    provide a...

    One individual has suggested that I upload my incomplete routes for two reasons: 1. If I should drop dead, they would still be
    available for others to flesh out as desired and, 2. others could...
  7. Use of X-tracks turnouts with M-tracks

    Colleagues,

    This will probably interest only the most experienced diehards among us but it is an issue that I
    finally figured out how to deal with.

    I like to use M-tracks for the better...

    If I had known about the C&TS better, I would have moved there when I retired in 2001 from CSX. Now though, NM is
    a sanctuary state, so visiting is sufficient. Right now, I will make next years...

    Being 80 years old, and with lots of experience with MSRE, I only do a few things with
    TSRE, and I only have 8 potential routes that I have not started laying track for yet
    and may never get to...

    If track charts are available, by all means get them. I would suspect that charts are
    available for the line mentioned. Check the paper work parts of www.railfandepot.com.
    Track charts there are...

    Colleagues,

    I was successful at the C&TS and returned to Jacksonville as a active docent (good for 2 years) and now have completed
    the track for the Clinch-Appalachia route. If anyone is really...

    Colleagues,

    That is the method I use. I get DEMs from the National Map, in the highest resolution available and
    use VtBuilder to convert them to the GeoTiff format required for DEMEX. Works...

    Instructions indicate that some objects are "restricted use". I don't know if any coke ovens
    are in the route - I remember that there were steel mills in original version, but if there are
    any...

    I'll second the monument thing buddy. And I will look forward to the eventual release
    of this route. I have two parts of MRS Logistica (Brazil) in my own bucket list. Some
    years ago I designed...

    Colleagues,

    While I agree that TRAINZ and to some extent the various incarnatioons of TS allow for easier route
    building, I have used them, studiously tried them out, created small test routes,...

    I have created shapes for several other track pieces that Simon didn't include originally with
    CatMaster and he has created several for me. Once you decide which way you want to go,
    I can send you...

    Steve,

    I don't post on FaceBook, rarely use it, so someone else is doing the Clinchfield as well.
    Is that route for MSTS, or more likely TRAINZ which seems to have a growing following.
    I looked...

    These are very impressive views. A question I have regards the back to back signals seen in one of
    the views. Are those available somewhere, or will they be available. I am so glad to see another...

    I've continued to lay track on the Clinch-Appalachia route and have completed the
    mainline of the Interstate which started at Wentz, mile zero. Today it only goes to

    Chris,

    If you really want to get the full feel, they do have fireman/engineer schools offered a couple
    of times during the season. Rather pricey, I think the 2018 price was about $500 for an...

    What is being worked----

    Colleagues,

    The Clinch-Appalachia route is well along. I've finished the main line from
    Bluefield to Norton, track only, no details yet. I've also done the Norton
    yard (N&W-L&N) which has a...

    I have never tried to use them with TSRE, but I have never experienced a problem with them
    using MSRE. I want to point out why I like them, and why I wish the author had stayed with
    the project...

    I agree about the 0.2M pieces but sometimes they cannot be avoided. For example, I use a lot of "M"
    track pieces, especially the #15 turnouts & crossovers. Some routes in my queue will also use...

    experienced, I find it is less necessary to rebuild databases if one is...

    slightly off from those in PhotoMaps, which I still use in areas where I had thought to...
