    I am really looking forward to this New route. The early examples were great, this one looks much improved.

    Thanks to all of you for your hard work, I have the other ones and enjoy them.

    I think you will like the next route as well. Don Karch, who left this world last December,
    did a monumental route involving many narrow gauge routes in Colorado. I am closing a
    gap, he had started before he died, namely the line over Marshall Pass, with some short
    branch stubs off of it. That should appear in the spring of 2019, and then I will do some
    work on a route started by Simon Van de Laak involving the Virginian. He had done
    Mullins, WV to Narrow, VA and I expanded it to include many of the coal mines (where
    all that coal came from) and Roanoke. Anyone that wishes can continue it east of
    Ronoke, but I'm a guy that likes mountain lines. After that, the plan is to do the last
    Milwaukee Road line, i.e. the Great Falls Line, Harlowton, MT to Great Falls. Michael
    Stefan in his "High Line" route included the Milwaukee Rd. west of Great Falls.

    Jerry, I look forward to the Milw Harlowton to GF route. The Milw is almost complete in virtual scale.

    Colleagues,

    Over the years, I have been asked about the line from St. Maries, ID down
    toward Bovill & the other lumber areas. Altogether this would be about
    120 miles of main and branches. I have the necessary profiles and other
    data to do it, and I might tackle it sometime after the Great Falls line. I've
    also recently got profiles of the Montana and Aberdeen divisions and if I
    did those, perhaps in a minimal detail form, it would truly complete the
    Pacific Extension as I would have just east of Mobridge, SD to Miles City,
    MT which is still used by BNSF and has modern block signals (part of it had
    CTC while still Milwaukee Road owned). Miles City to Harlowton is
    abandoned but easily visible on G.Earth for digitizing. Just to have the
    necessary basics, I have digitized, set up, and generated terrain for both,
    knowing that USGS often changes formats of files. So far you can use
    Virtual Terrain Builder to create geotiff files that work with DEMEX. I
    use the 1/3 arc/sec. version.
