Request for help with Rail Network plan
« on: December 28, 2019, 11:44:05 pm »
So it's been awhile for me regarding BVE and i'm not sure how many people are left developing routes. Before I stepped away I was developing a series of routes for Southern New Jersey called Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines [PRSL]. Based on real routes, PRSL was stretched throughout South Jersey and my plan was to re-create the entire network. Before I stepped away I did a lot of pre-coding work converting all of the stations, road crossings, interlocking, overhead bridges, under grade bridges and curves from miles to meters. These were written in a notebook that I recently took out of storage and got the itch again to work on and complete. I am reaching out to the community here to ask for help with track coding. That is my biggest obstacle for me right now. Everything else is ready. Here are the routes for the PRSL that I have plans to make:



1-Atlantic City Line [via Vernon Branch] Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Atlantic City Terminal MP 57.9 [93175m]

2-Atlantic City Line [via Clementon Branch] Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Atlantic City Terminal MP 55.9 [89975m]

3-Millville Branch Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Millville Station MP 40.2 [64700] and on to Cape May Station MP 81.9 [131800m]

4-Cape May Branch [via Clementon Branch] Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Cape May Station MP 80.9 [130200]

5-Cape May Branch [via Vernon Branch] Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Cape May Station MP 82.9 [133425m]

6-Wildwood Branch Starts at MP 61 [98175] on Cape May Branch at Sea Isle Junction and Ends at Cold Spring Harbor Station MP 82.0 [131975]

7-Ocean City Branch starts at MP 61 [98175] on Cape May Branch at Sea Isle Junction and Ends at Ocean City Gardens Station MP 77.7 [125050]

8-Penns Grove Branch starts at MP 8.6 [13850] on Millville Branch at Woodbury Junction and Ends at Penns Grove Station MP 28.9 [46500]

9-Salem Branch starts at MP 8.6 [13850] on Millville Branch at Woodbury Junction and Ends at Salem Station MP 37.3 [60025]

10-Bridgeton Branch starts at MP 18.0 [28975] on Millville Branch at Glassboro Junction and ends at Bridgeton Station MP 38.7 [62275]

11-Elmer Branch starts at MP 26.1 [42000] on Bridgeton Branch at CP Elmer and ends at Quinton Station MP 41.8 [67275]

12-Newfield Branch starts at MP 30.1 [48440] on Millville Branch at CP WI [Newfield Station] and ends at Atlantic City Terminal MP 64.4 [103650]

13-Maurice River Branch starts at MP 46.6 [75000] on Millville Branch at Manumuskin Station and ends at Maurice River Station MP 56.2 [90450]

14-Williamstown Branch starts at MP 18.8 [30100] on Atlantic City Line [Vernon] and ends at Mullica Hill Station MP 41.5 [66775]

15-Grenloch Branch starts at MP 3.0 [4825] on Millville Branch at CP GK and Ends at Grenloch Station MP 13.4 [21575]

16-Medford Branch starts at MP 6.5 [10450] on Atlantic City Line [Vernon] at Haddonfield Station and ends at Mount Holly Station MP 24.8 [39900]

17-Bay Head Branch Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Bay Head Station MP 69.1 [111200]

18-Trenton Branch Starts at MP 0 Camden Terminal Ends at Trenton Terminal MP 37.5 [60350]

19-South Amboy Branch starts at MP 27.6 Bordentown Station on Trenton Branch and ends at South Amboy Station MP 61.3 [98650]

in addition to these lines I also did the pre-work for several Central Railroad of New Jersey lines [CNJ] that also went into South Jersey:

20-CNJ Southern Division starts at MP 0 Jersey City Terminal and ends at Bayside Station MP 144.0 [231750]

21-CNJ Port Norris Branch starts at MP 133.7 [215175] Bridgeton Station and ends at Bivalve Station MP 151.0 [243000]

22-CNJ Deerfield Branch Starts at MP 0 Deerfield Station and follows the CNJ Port Norris Branch to Bivalve Station MP 24.0 [38625]

23-CNJ Southern Division Atlantic City Line starts at Winslow Juction MP 105.9 [170425] and ends at Atlantic City Terminal MP 135.9 [218700]

24-CNJ Southern Division Cape May Line starts at  Winslow Juction MP 105.9 [170425] and ends at Cape May Station MP 160.9 [258950]



That's a lot of routes, however quite a few of them branch off from the main 4 lines [Atlantic City Line/Millville Branch/Cape May Branch/Trenton Branch] and two of the CNJ routes connect with PRSL at Winslow Junction for Atlantic City and Cape May. Most lines are two track lines Millville Branch is 4 tracks until Glassboro Junction. Single track lines are Penns Grove/Salem/Bridgeton/Grenloch/Maurice River/Williamstown/Medford/CNJ Port Norris/CNJ Deerfield.

Like I said before a lot of pre work is already done and I just need experienced coder or someone willing to collaborate with me. I'll send all of the information that I have to you and give you the insights of what i'm trying to do. Thanks for any responses and help!!!
