    Yes! This is the correct access point for the White Pass and Yukon on TrainzItalia.

    I used to have Windows 10 but it bombed on an update and when I recovered it to went back to Windows 8 (long after version 10 was no longer free!!!) to Microsoft.

    The real question is- Could someone do a DEM of Middle Earth?

    Sadly, the closest we've been able to get to a digital elevation model for Middle Earth was from ortho-photos taken from a passing dragon...

    That's really too bad. Maybe on day we'll get a better elevation model.

This is the same for other people as well as the use the options they need for their own route creation.
    I have owned TransDEM for a good while now, but have had little success in actually using it. It would be nice if there were a condensed version of instructions that covered just what we need to know for Surveyor use. I would much prefer tailoring maps for my Garmin than for baseboard development in Trainz for some odd reason...

    I put together a quick guide that I've shared in the past. Sadly it's now terribly out of date due to the constant changes at the National Geologic Survey. If you want it, I'll link to it.

    You can import the .gpx files used on GPSs into TransDEM's tracks as well as .kmz from Google Earth. If you look on the NGS website where you download the image files, you can also download transportation information including railroads. These are a .shp file, which is easily imported into TransDEM. I did that once and it worked okay, but not for what I was doing at the time.
