Hi Shane,
If the two routes were created by the same person and meant to be merged then there should be no need to raise either to make a good join, but generally if the two routes are unrelated then it is unusual to be able to merge them without some disruption. Merging routes has been extensively covered previously and a search will bring plenty of helpful advice if you need it.

Cheers
Russell.

You'll need to add a board or two (maybe more if the height difference is really big) between them. Connect up the track and adjust the height of the surrounding ground to achieve a some what smooth transition.

It is my understanding that the only way to raise an entire baseboard, for the purposes you outline, is to use a third party program.

Thanks all,
They are all good ideas and well the best is adding a "transition" board/s in between them

Ed, what third party program have you in mind?

Hi teddytoot,

I believe he thinks about TransDEM, as that program as the ability to raise a whole route - or lower it if that is needed.

But, I leave that up to Ed to fully comment on, don't want to lower my chances of ever avoiding Ed if I enters the area where he lives in the future... ;) LOL

Best wishes
