    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
    send it to...

    Yes, that line that goes a few miles east from Corbin is the CV Division/Sub. About 30 miles out, the first branch
    is encountered, the C&M (Cumberland & Manchester) which, according to the article...

    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...
  11. 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...

    I thought I did provide a solution in plain English. At 82 I am a bit long in the tooth to understand script
    etc. myself though I once wrote credible programs in Visual C. I don't understand much...

    First I want to compliment you for trying to use M-tracks. This has been in the library for many
    years but as far as I know, I am the only one that has used it regularly. I first put it in the...

    I have used M-tracks on most of my released routes since 2010 or so and I have seen this issue but in my
    experience it is a "operator error". The #20 or #15 point pieces have two locations where...

    Andre,
    Others,

    Q-GIS seems to be pointed more at professional users rather than occasional hobby types like us.
    I gave up on it and removed it from my system. VTBuilder has a lot more...
