    Guys,

    Keep up the prayers please. She saw her cardiologists' PA on Tuesday but all that was done
    was to listen to the carotid arteries. Since she experienced some fatigue after taking her...

    I decided to include the old line through Burnside, KY because the lake elevation that
    generates in DEMEX is a few meters lower than the old line. At maximum pool level
    some parts of the old line,...

    Thanks for all of your prayers guys. The issue in my mouth turned out to be nothing of significance. Most likely
    it was burn marks from hot chicken noodle soup, Bob Evans type, which I like too...

    Things to watch for-----

    Colleagues,

    While finishing up the 3rd district of the CNO&TP, I occasionally move to the 2nd District
    for a hour or two. In doing this I encountered a small issue that I will explain how I...

    I encourage anyone to get on with creating new routes. No matter what area of the world
    they are in, somebody(s) will be interested in grabbing them. My personal preference is
    U.S. routes that...

    Download Dudley Evans & I's KD Subdivision route and take a look at the .SMS files if you are doing this for

    I also have the major bridges & viaducts done on the Harlowton-Great Falls line, and I plan to add the trestles
    on the Camas Prairie and the Joso Viaduct soon. After that, if some one will sell...

    As I have said to others, if DEM data is an issue, give me the coordinates of the rectangular
    area you need and I will download the data, and massage it so DEMEX will digest it and then

    Yes, that line that goes a few miles east from Corbin is the CV Division/Sub. About 30 miles out, the first branch

    Don,

    That is a sad article. The Cumberland Valley was a very big coal producer and there is still a lot of
    coal there. A look on Google Earth shows many strip operations and there are a number...

    After reading a good article in the July 2021 issue of TRAINS I decided to add the Cumberland Valley Sub.
    (formerly division) circa 1970-80. I have generated the terrain, ran DEMEX on it and...

    But your opinion is correct. I suppose you could max out the memory on your PC and have a large SSD to house the
    operating system & simulation but some of us are on limited incomes??

    That is correct. When I create the pieces of the trestle, I build in the gradient so that when placed, the
    "supports", i.e. the "bents" are vertical and do not have a lean as would be the case if...

    All well and good if you use TSRE. I don't just because the learning curve is a bit steep and at 82 I'll stay with
    MSRE which is the method I use to roughly place the pieces. I do use TSRE to...
  19. How to fit a trestle to curve & grade----

    Friends,

    In doing a route for a friend in Tennessee, I knew that the Tennessee Central had several timber trestles. I found that the limit on polygons for
    my system was around 4,000, so I...
