    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...
  4. 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...

    Rose Valley never made much sense to me. The approaches were difficult from either direction and it
    also conflicted with one of the Hyde Field runways that appears to have been removed. That...

    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...

    Clinton, MD. Oh my, I think it is closed now, but I learned to fly at Hyde field back in
    1970-1971. Got my license, single engine land, in August 1971. My late wife had a mortal

    Andre,

    We have collaborated on various nefarious things before, so If I assume that the labled block is what you require,
    I should have no problem getting the required data for you. I will need...

    Corrupt Road database

    Any of us that have used MSTS/RE for any time have eventually encountered that

    to select one of the offending...

    Romain,

    I see nobody has tried to help, so I will take a whack at it. When I merge routes, the first thing is that I
    make sure that there are no interactive objects on either route. No signals,...

    History

    Thanks Christopher. I consider the vicarious preservation of history to be the best thing we do with MSTS/ORTS.
