    Edging For Different Heights

    Having another go at a proto-model concept, where I've Transdemed a section of real world railway to enclose in a barn (or aircraft hangar!) size room. However what this does mean is where I prune...

    1. Locating and chaining arcane rules to set up an activity is no substitute for a one stop system like the MSTS Activity Editor.

    I don't think there is, only trial and error with different catenary systems until you find one that matches the pan height. Been there, done that - very tedious!

    Will give it a go with the LIDAR data, see what the outcome is (might have to upgrade my Transdem version for the data though).
