    "Mapper" is it's name. It's somewhere in the file library, I believe in the same zip as Archibald, Horace & Zipper.

    The Mapper works great even for routes with multiple lines:

    eoleson: Ahh, I've seen that one.

    rdamurphy: Thank you for the link.

    CrisGer: I believe that it does not get down to the siding name level.

    What was hoping would pop up would be along the lines of the track monitor, but with more capability. In my dreams, I was looking for a zoom (like Mapper) with the capability of a zoom (like AE) where when far out, you see stations, but as you zoom in, you pick-up siding names (like Google or such map programs as Streets).

    Thanks again.

    There is a program over at UKTrainSim called MSTS Track Viewer that does just as you want. You load the route from the list and then under the interactives pull down you can choose to list station names, siding names, mileposts, signal locations and several more. You can zoom in and out as well to look at details of track and switches, etc. I use it quite often to look over a route but it has the drawback that you can not print with it.
