    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
    Tacoma at mile 22, where it...

    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...
  9. Musings of an experienced route builder

    Colleagues,

    I used to fret a lot about what might happen rebuilding a track or road database etc. but as I get more
    experienced, I find it is less necessary to rebuild databases if one is...

    Scott,

    Agreed about Google Maps. I have fortunately found that the points digitized in G.E. are only
    slightly off from those in PhotoMaps, which I still use in areas where I had thought to...

    Scott,

    Very good. Need a few more yellow marks west of Saint Paul. Follow the N&W northwest
    through Coeburn to Norton. At that point follow the Southern (now NS, former Interstate)
    from...

    No basic route map, but it can be easily followed on Google Earth.

    Please keep it up Doug. Although these are not the correct type of ovens for use
    at Vanzant and nearby on the N&W Dismal branch, only a picky rivet counter is
    likely to notice.

    Colleagues,

    I have been detailing the Virginian Route, started by Simon Van de Laak and as happens
    from time to time, one needs to take a break, so I took one.

    I don't mind doing scenery, but I acknowledge that is not my area of good expertise. All you
    need to do, to prove this, is compare the RMD-1 with the RMD-EAST, i.e. the relevant parts.
    It is also...

    Rick,

    I forgot to put that one in the list. Also two others. In doing the Main Stem

    Would there be any interest ----

    Colleagues,

    As I have attained the age of 80, and most of my ancestors didn't make it past
    88, although my father made it to 96, it is not likely that many of the routes in
    my bucket list will...

    WW-II, I would take on the task of digitizing the loops district of it, if...

    Okay,

    Thanks, I am still piddling with TSRE and likely won't lay track or roads with it,
    mainly because almost all of the future routes I have, already have all track,
    and some roads done.

    You have just commented on something I wonder about. In my MCOA2 route, which we

    Colleagues,

    In my experience, the main problem is going to be getting the curves and grades right without
    a track diagram. Tim (?) in England did a good job with the Uintah in narrow gauge, and...

    Amen to your comment about Goku. His editor is great, but I do not use it for track or roads for
    the same reason you state. Today, I used it for something that has vexed me in RE...
