    Default Overhead Wire (Catenary) NEC V4

    Well, stupid question time. My old mind has changed and now I would like to see Catenary over the NEC v4. I use Open Rails and have "Overhead Wires" checked but it gives just a single wire-looking line along the Gantries.

    The newer PRR has excellent wire placement as does the Pacific Electric routes.

    How can I have good looking Catenary in the NEC v4? I have searched in all the downloads and saved versions of this route and the "Gantry" file only contains info about the supports, no wire is mentioned as in the Gantry file of the PRR.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    There should be an experimental option for double wires

    That seems OK, but I wish the wires were better colored/shaded like on the Hiawatha Route. I guess this will do the job, thank you.

    I didn't realize that is what "Double" meant, should have just tried it huh???

    Check out the Overhead Wire Texture in the Open Rails folder. It provides for several overhead wire colors which you select.

    I looked in the Open Rails folder, I see nothing to do with textures, let alone overhead wire textures.

    Is this the Main OR folder?
