Official Thread for the North East Corridor, Amtrak
« on: January 24, 2011, 01:35:22 am »
You guys may call me crazy but this will be my first route I will be creating. Basically, it's an Amtrak route, yes I know it's long, but it will take time. As of now this will be the map of the route:

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=207186238098279516263.00049a7c6b8b274fa3925
There will be an express route as an add on (making it a one stop shuttle)
Just to let you guys know, this will be a long development process, but yeah getting snapshots of each station will be a pain  :-\
But yeah, I'll keep you guys updated once the development begins:)

Good Luck!  Since your doing this scale of a route, just work little by little and employ visual tricks, you may need lots of that. ::)

That huge curve after the Acela exits the tunnel will be annoying to code >.<
Development has begun, This route will be 8 stops long (worth it until the extension) Default train is Acela, I will give you guys an update once i finish coding up the .csv file...

Okay now this is gonna be a pain: Hell Gate Bridge, and other structures.... I will like to ask who wants to help out with the route, with objects etc, just PM me or post below, I have to admit, this route will take Years to complete.
Note: you will also be credited for your contributions and work also :)
