Hi guys Im planning A layout that includes a large amount of see with boats, but ide like to make the water very deep for more affect. Is there a easy way to this ive tried using the land down icon but it takes so long to have any result any ideas welcome thanks.

Use the drop land then use the flat land tool (on the right) open the radius larger, start from the lowest point and left click, now drag mouse around and all the ground will level at that point. You could also use the advance tab at the bottom and set the depth, then again drag mouse.

You didn't mention the version of Trainz you are using, and therefore run the risk of actually making your deepest water appear shallow if you are depending for actual ground height for the effect. You could possibly "out deep" your ground texture drawing distance.

I would recommend using textures to simulate depth, ie: dark for deep water, lighter for more shallow water. It's less work and the results will be the same.
