Maps

Was wondering if you could include a map of the combined Ashland Central V2 and Sherwood Mtn RR. Everytime i merge them, it seems that i've done it wrong. :confused: Thanks in advance. I like the screenie of the two consists on the tressles. Nice work


P.s. thanks man, Some days it hard for me the walk and chew gum

Hadn't really thought of that, but I'll put one together.

Here's that map of the combined routes. I haven't actually joined them yet on my machine, but it should work okay. I have the track elevations at the joining boards at the same elevation.

:cool: Boy am I Dumb! Thanks for the map. I can't believe where I was trying to connect the two layout at. Gees.:rolleyes:

Nope, it won't work. Thought i'd done it wrong, but the merge point has about 50+ feet cliff between the Grandville Portal and the Ashland Central V2 track. Sorry Leeferr. Any advise? I know, I know - Contract a very large bulldozer. lol

Sorry, I guess I should have tried it first myself. I believe that we may have to insert one board between the two layouts or once they're merged, do a little landscaping. I'll try to do better with my next merge. I've never tried it before.
 
Could change that portal to a tunnel and have it come out into the Ashland Central v2 layout. Don't know if i'm talented enough to doer myself, But might give it a try. I can alway delete and start over:D

I merged them okay. I could have deleted the portal and put a tunnel through as you suggested, but I just branched off on the Sherwood Mtn side and put a tunnel through to join the track on the Ashland Central. Then I did a little terrain smoothing, copying and pasting with some of the textures and it was done. Took me about 15 minutes.
 
Merge

Tried lowering the terrain, but that was a bomb. Couldn't get the ground level using the terrain stuff. No Talent i guess. Looks like a tunnel might do it as you did. Will try later on tonight or tomorrow. Will let you know how i duz.:eek:

Let me know how you do.
 
Tunnels

Could you show a screenie of the tunnel entrance on the Sherwood Mtn RR side, if you have some time. The one i tried to run combined with the portal, and was a mess. Had to delete and start over.

Sure, I'll put one together of each tunnel entrance. Maybe it will help.
Will post when I get it together.

Here's two screenshots. One from the Sherwood Mtn side and one from the Ashland Central side.

Thanks Mike, it sure helps in placement of the tunnel entrances. later.

Let me know if you have any more problems. This exercise will help me the next time that I try to create something to merge with another.

just wondering if you got it going okay. I'm thinking of starting another layout to merge with these, but I'll try to do a better job at it next time. Just for curiosity, I ran a train from Highfield to Flatrock last night and it took about 1 hour 40 minutes at speed limits. It could make for some really long operating sessions, but being retired, it's only time.
 
just printed the photos you provided but haven't had the time to put in the tunnel yet. Busy week, ailing mother, ailing me. I'm retired as well, but I'm working more than when i was working, if you know what i mean

Anyway, i'll try to get to it before the weekend.

Looking forward to your addon layout.

Don't be down on yourself at all. I couldn't come anywhere clost to what you've done. That's why I downloaded your layouts.

Have a good turkey day!

Jack
