    Here is Newark Liberty (EWR) station. Combination of both shape type found in the Library, turned out quite good though a bit wonky:

    What scenery objects are you using? Please do NOT use any payware shapes.

    None are payware. Going to see if I can borrow some shapes from existing routes with the authors permission later down the line. Some routes have good models, but I'd rather ask the owners privately.

    Quick Update: Newark finished and Secaucus Junction is near ready

    This is the fourth Secaucus Junction I have done. To be honest, the track work is better than before. I managed to use longer angled track pieces and dynamic track with more effect this time around. NYP work begins on Sunday at the latest.
    Have a peak:

    Small update:
    Redoing Newark Penn. Track spacing is dead wrong. Starting from scratch.

    Thanks for your updates. It sure is a lot of work starting all over again. I once wrote a complete review for a sports betting site which took 1 working day and I forgot to save it. Then my PC crashed I had to do everything again. So keep up the good work
    I wrote a complete review for the UK horse racing betting site Coral. You can check it out on horsebetting.com if you like.

    Remember to back up! Heck, I've learned this the hard way. Now you know why I've got one more excuse to switch from MSTS to TRAINZ.

    Tell me about it... With the amount of dynamic track being used I save quite frequently.

    Not a problem, unfortunately I burned myself out (again >:O) and am now on a hiadus. I've been making activities for the time being, while playing some addictive shooters. I'll get back into it mid June.

    Slow and steady is the best approach to route building. I allocate maybe an hour or two per day MAX. Take a day or two off when I feel like it. All avoids burnout. There's plenty to do in route building.

    Good idea, I haven't been pacing myself. properly.
