Once again my PC crashed but now i have a brand new one with 160GB and a very good video card, so work on the B & B will be suspended until further notice, until i can download all the stuff i need to work on it, it may take a couple of weeks hopefully two weeks at the most.
Thanks for the patience so far.

Some work has been started from Bodie to Mono Mills I'm having trouble with the yard layout that i got from the mesuem sent me but i have most of the track work down to the first switchback. Continueing on i have done more research of this route and now i have located a well drawn route from bodie to mono mills and this time the route shall be better.

Bad News from Trainz, they are going to stop accepting everything for TRS2004 and TRS2006, and might delete everything on the DLS for them, so if you want your content to be on the Trainz you better update everything that you got. And since this is going on i will now have to upload this route from 06' to 09' and everything else to save my route.

Thanks, Comments are welcome.

New here and to Trainz.

Sorry to "bump" this one,

I was just up at Bodie this weekend. FYI: The water tower fell down during the winter and is almost rebuilt. The Supervising Ranger also mentioned to me that they're looking at the possibility of a complete restoration of the Depot (subject to labor and funding).

Anyway, has this Bodie/Trainz project had any additional work done on it since last year? I'm beyond quite interested!

I believe that this project is dead, he said a while back.
Curtis, do you still have the DEM map for this route?
Could you send it to me please.

Yep, it's still posted here:

Drag and drop the folder into CM. I can also export it as a .cdp if that would be easier...
As I recall, I didn't export any UTM tiles with this route, but did put a blue stripe on the ground for my best guess as to where the track goes.

Nothing immediate for the V&T. I'm working on some more of the VC engine yard buildings, and may have a wip screenshot of the original car shops building Soon (TM).

I apologize, since it's been so long since I've done anything with this route, but here's a picture I found:

This map also includes the proposed extension to Benton.
The Mono Mills model looks like something by Ben Dorsey; I don't know if he ever released it or not...

edit: yes, he did: KUID2:210518:7694:8 on the DLS.

Try extracting all the files into a folder, then drag and drop the folder into CM. I'll also post a .cdp file this evening.
