    Question Merging Routes

    I've seen few topics on it. However, they seem very incomplete to me. Could anyone provide detail instructions on how to do it. Please and thank you.

    Lightbulb Merge Routes? You Need Route_Riter to do that.

    Download the Route_Riter help files and if you're really planning to attempt this, download Route_Riter also.

    On the The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor there is a Tablet. On it is written:
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Alot depends on the size of the routes you want to merge as well as the number of interactives; additionally you will need a large dose of luck. Merging signal systems can be difficult, although R/R is said to be able to handle this.

    How "complete" you need depends on your MSTS experience/knowledge level. This is the general procedure that I have used:

    In terms of route knowledge, probably basic maybe.

    I'll repeat this link; at the top of the page, download it. There's no great detail in it, but you need to be comfortable with the philosophy of the whole thing. I used that as a guide and then developed my own detailed approach. Details will vary from route to route.

    Pay some real attention the PREPARE YOURSELF part; get some experience. Folks on this forum can help with the hard spots...

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I think until I have more time on my hands I'll put a hold on this project.
