    Your welcome.

    I can't believe I've become a route slave over operating these days. I'm more excited about getting my own copy of TransDem this week than participating in any running of trains. Last night I was trying to place bridges that looked like some of the crossings (but didn't quite cut it) over the gorge. Next thing you know I'll be building my own 3d models. Not sure what the world is coming to, but I like this part.

    Thanks

    Default Fort Erie with TransDem 15M and Bing Level 19

    After purchasing TransDem I've begun to redo everything to give more realistic ground levels for everything. This is the base I'll be using to transpose Fort Erie and the rest of Niagara into elevated scenery. Of course the UTM will eventually be removed before any distribution.
    But it does look cool at ground level once scenery items are added to it.

    Thanks

    Following this with interest, Sean... I may have mentioned my parents live in scenic Virgil, ON, so I have ridden GO and driven myself around the area a fair old bit.

    Don't forget to include Canadians and Americans waving to each other across the gorge.

    Well Niagara Falls itself is actually close to the CP industrial lead at Fallsview.

    I could add in a few barrels to go over the Falls

    Thanks

    Did some field work today (actually walking out on this trestle) to inspect the grade. Cambe back and worked on this scene. Looks pretty good for what was just DEM and a track that followed the bottom of the hill before.

    Thanks

    Sean
