    One of the neat things about this route is that the author created correct mileposts for the
    Southern Railway, which he gave me permission to use on some of my routes under
    construction. He also...

    Well done Steve. I lived in Alexandria for some 15 years, 6/65 to 11/80. Lived first at a high rise on Rt. 1, I believe it was
    6040 Richmond highway. Then bought a house in Springfield and then...

    First thing I would do is change the monitor resolution to 1024x768. There is a reason the system wants that
    resolution, likely related to that particular graphic card which I am not familiar with....

    micsinucsi
    Fred,

    This was not an attempt to merge two routes. Rather it was an attempt to use part, or parts, of one route to
    start, or add to, another. Michael Stefan has a very good GN route...

    Robert, Loss of the keyboard happens to me...

    Robert,

    Loss of the keyboard happens to me every day or two and it is so frequent that when I go into
    my KD Subdivision route to do some editing, the first thing I do is cycle the "W" key. If...

    Udayan,

    Water bodies are probably the most frustrating, hair tearing item we deal with. Generally, I only use the
    built in water when it is either a lake, or an ocean. If it is a river, I...

    Travis,

    It would be difficult, even impossible, to account for all the possible variations in modern signals. So
    what I would like would be a generic bi-directional intermediate with 1 head in...

    Travis,

    Your chain was what I was yanking because what you have done look very good in the
    thumb nail images. What I am looking for is the modern style, long hood, sometimes
    referred to as...

    Bi-Directional Signals

    Colleagues,

    There have been some excellent new signals in the library lately and I admit that I have not
    downloaded any yet and checked the contents but I wonder if any one has produced ...

    This is not a total integration of two routes, but it is the most I have personally done along those lines and so let me explain what I just finished a few hours ago:
    1. I have completed the track...

    Ged,

    He got a good copy from me and it is working for him. As I told him this was one of my
    earliest efforts and used 98% default objects & no DM terrain. With the help of Ron Picardi,
    I did...

    Doug,

    You can send me a email if you use the address in the instructions file for the route. I have a working copy with one generic
    activity that I can send you ready to copy in your routes...
  13. As I said Doug, if you will send me a private...

    As I said Doug, if you will send me a private message with your email address, I will send you the entire
    route in a single zip file by way of "WeTransfer" so all you need to do is do one "unzip"...

    Well, Coonskin, be careful with that two-wheeler you mention from time to time. Sporadic or not, it would
    be nice to have you around a lot longer. I'm working up the Corbin-Knoxville line,...

    Ged,
    Doug,

    Just to be sure, I downloaded the files from the library and I found that the method Ged recommends works fine.
    I used a fairly new version of WinZip (payware) and it successfully...

    The route was my first or 2nd attempt at doing a route and much of the software used to prepare it
    for distribution no longer exists. Send me a private message and give me your email address and I...

    Southern Railway, not NS, acquired some SD-45s but not many as there were issues with
    the long crankshaft in the diesel prime mover. It tended to twist. Neither SR or NS ever
    had F or FP-45s. I...

    It can be done and if you have RouteRiter there is a tool to help. I would recommend doing the search on the subject
    and there has been a lot written about it in this forum, but here is the issue. ...

    I have mini routes for foreign routes, mostly MRS Logistica from Brazil, and narrow gauge
    routes. Then I have mini routes for some routes that have unique global files, or that
    require separate...

    There is a lot of Milwaukee Road rolling stock in the file library. Although much of it is related to
    the electric operation out west, I remember "F", "SD", and other types of diesels, as well as...

    Steve,

    I would be willing to set up the route for you, extract the terrain for normal & distant mountain terrain, and digitize the track. However that is around 400 miles +- and I would recommend...
  22. If you consider that to be a serious issue, I...

    If you consider that to be a serious issue, I would regenerate the routes terrain and raise it by 1-2 meters using the height
    offset too. To raise 2 meters, key in 2 in the box. If that turns out...

    As far as I know, track charts are only available in the U.S. I was able to collect what I needed
    while I worked for CSX and later contractors. Now, at www.railfandepot.com you can find a large...

    I use 1/3 arc-sec terrain data. I have found that the DEMEX generated terrain is usually slightly
    lower than I would expect. I first noticed this when I was doing the RMD-3 for Lukas, who was...

    Andre,

    The geotiff files that USGS puts out now, will not work on DEMEX. What we have found is that you
    can use VTBuilder to massage them. Run VTBuilder as administrator, otherwise it will...
