    I know this thread is years old, life sort of got in the way (and death too).

    You're right. I didn't do Alaska, I just was curious about the lower mainland.
    What was surprising to me was how open the border was. People could just walk across.

    Ah, I see. I've never built a route before, but it would be wild to actually drive from Seattle to Chicago and back.

  6. Amtrak "Real time" website with track route

    I've been looking at this site:

    https://asm.transitdocs.com/

    Has anyone used this to make a route?
    It doesn't zoom in as far as maps.google.com, but
    if you click on a train, it will show you...
  7. Amtrak #8 Seattle To Chicago / Amtrak #7 Chicago To Seattle

    I'd like to know if this would be too large a route or if this
    is something that is doable. Having rode the route 4 times,
    I'd be interested in driving it. :)

    Stupid Questions

    OK, I've been Googling and have not really found an answer so I figured I'd ask.
    Does Rail Simulator 2 = Railworks?
    If so, then why two different names?

    Also, where can I buy the game here in...

    Gmap-pedometer.com

    Has anyone used this in route building?
    There's also mention of a GMapToGPX converter that will create a GPX
    file of any route you make with it.

    So Now What? / Google

    Fast way to make markers?

    Well, what about using google earth to at least lay waypoints to convert to marker files?
    I already have waypoints for all the Amtrak stations.
    The trick would be to get elevation data as well.

  23. Route Available When?

    Can anyone tell me more about this route? I'm originally from NJ and sorta miss it.
    I wouldn't mind running Trenton to NY :)
