    I don't use scale rail. What I do use a lot is M-tracks because the turnouts are accurate for
    US routes. And you run into some oddities. For example, I have completed the main stem
    mainline and...

    I use dynamic track only as much as is absolutely not avoidable. And the comment about the local tsection.dat file is correct, but
    I never have merged two routes. What I have done, is used a route...

    I haven't got the route (yet) but this idea of "historical significance" is a good one. There are a
    number of lines that fit the category. For example, in my own bucket list is the Camas Prairie...

    Maximum gradient change

    of this line, especially between...
  5. Additional items

    Friends,

    Originally there were four branches and one mainline off the mainstem. The Bardstown
    branch departed the mainline about mile 22 and extended east for several miles with the
    main town...

  7. A little History

    As for the Biloxi station mentioned in the previous thread, it existed the last time I was

    Colleagues,

    I started on this line a week ago and have made passable progress having

    I don't find high enough resolution with .hgt data, so I will continue to use the USGS
    data and DEMEX as long as I can. Soon be going to Win-10 from Win-7 though and that
    might seal my fate.
