    complete to one may not be complete to another. I'm not sure that your bold demands will be taken too kindly here, but good luck to you.

    Yeah, dream on.
    Still, if there were such layouts I am sure they would be offered to you, inspite of your self.
    Hey, I know, create one.

    Also, if you want to try your hand at making your own route, fishlipsatwork has DEM/HOG's (just terrain and markings showing where tracks, roads, etc. go) of Birmingham-Montgomery for NS and CSX on the DLS.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Err, yeah, that is a very difficult one as there are around about 2,500 or more track miles. This is even counting the preserved lines and private/independant railways.

    London itself is defined within a 20 mile or so radius and even then you are looking about 1k of route miles. That sort of project would see you into your death. I do have one route in development which does fall into the 100 mile radius, Portsmouth to Brighton, which isn't in London, but around 60 miles outside London. The route itself is about 44 miles long and has about 30 or so stations.

    The route only goes between Portchester to Brighton, which includes the branch to Portsmouth, Bognor, Littlehampton, Brighton and London Road (Brighton) but not much of other branches sorry to say.

    I wish I could help you out but until David Drake comes through with an 800 meter wide kudzu spline, doing routes in Alabama would be impossible.

    (This is an inside joke for those of you that don't live in the southeastern US.)

    My routes are mostly SE United States and I would love to have a kudzu spline. The sad thing is that when I was a boy scout back in the 1960's, it was thought that this wonder plant would solve our erosion problems and we spent many a weekend planting kudzu as conservation projects. Little did we know

    Yeah, Dave has some trees covered in kudzu but the effect just isn't the same without it being surrounded by a sea of kudzu. I don't think I've ever seen a ground texture. Is there one?

    Exclamation Let Me Clarify

    What I meant was just single routes, not the ENTIRE system of railroads. I have an old computer that does run everything with enough power to spare, but only 30 gig's left. I'd also appreciate any with scenarios.

    P.S. It doesn't matter whether or not I have kudzu obscuring the SE routes.

    Unhappy And...

    I'm only a new person to the Trainz 'Technapalooza.' Making my own route would take years, no matter the size. Making a RR look-alike could take me until retirement.

    Yes this is true. I have been working on a route for three years and it still not more than 30% done but that is the fun of it. Since you are new I will warn you creating your know model railroad with trainz is highly addictive and may cause you hundreds of hours of enjoyment.
