    Default ConBuilder consist length

    Back on Feb 2nd Joe Smith started a thread on ConBuilder consist length on the ConBuilder Support forum. He offered to increase the maximum length, but only if those that wanted it increased would provide input as to exactly how long.

    Sunday will be 8 weeks since he posted. There have been no comments provided, so I assume the code will remain at a maximum of 150.

    I missed the post, but I'd certainly say somewhere around 2 miles...That breaks down to 10,560 feet, 3218.688 meters or close to maybe 225-275 cars/engines? I'd have to go back in and do the math...

    I will not provide you the URL. It is a forum for members only. No sense posting a URL for someone to try to get to that is not authorized.

    In the ConBuilder Support Forum (If you forgot the login URL look in your ConBuilder folder on your HD and run the file Invite.htm)
    In the sub-forum "ConBuilder"
    The topic "consist length" (First thread after the 6 sticky topics)

    Probably too late to comment. OP for comments was 2 months ago and only comment was request for current length.

    BTW your cars must be awfully short in length. 225 cars in 10560 ft = 47 ft each and 275 cars = 38 ft cars. You do the math.

    Maybe the OP is running iron ore hopper cars? Those cars are pretty short.

    Maybe so, BUT he nor others are interested in getting the Maximum number of items in a consist increased for ConBuilder as there still not been but one comment posted and that was in favor of the current maximum number.
