Building the Medicine Hat route

My work on the MH route located in Medicine Hat Alberta

  1. Images of MH route...almost finished.

  2. An update on the Medicine Hat route...for those who are interested in such things.

    Howdy folks, been since August that I wrote the blog, I have been busy working on the MH route and am now about 70% finished. I am currently putting in all the towns and such but I am too picky on such things, I want them to look exactly like the real thing which is impossible and slows me down to no end, in fact I will spend an hour searching content on and off line for a building that looks exactly right, just nuts. And then yesterday I was checking out some grades and noticed that they were ...

Creating wyes are a bit of a problem, it is hard to get both curves equal and smooth, mine are close but not perfect.

  5. Spacing Track and why does it disappear?

    Spent the last couple of days since the last post spacing the track to get it correct.

Ended up running two ruler lines from the start and end of the switch to make sure the track was straight and also vetical lines where the switch and industry start and end. Then nuked all the track and built it from scratch over what TRANSDERM put down. Sometimes I am ...
