Thanks! Water tiles.

Update: I am going to start off with a simple name change since the real route is known as the Lafayette District of the Illinois Division.

I am also going to relay the track and start over to have realistic terrain, as well as taking the route farther than originally intended so that the route is bookended by two NS yards.

The route now will extend from Peru, IN to Danville, IL, and maybe further in the future. *!!wink!!*

I just want to make it clear that the route is still in the works! Progress is just slow, I pretty much have to build the terrain myself due to the track charts making the track go way high above the base STRM data. However building the terrain myself makes it so that I can have it as close as possible to real life (or at least as close as Google Earth's terrain gets to real life). Fortunately the route, for the most part, is mostly flat. However it does get hilly around Delphi and Logansport. Here are a few screenshots of the new and older versions of the route.

As you can see, the track work is a little less jagged, and the scenery has terrain now. The progress is slow since i am just one person building the route so far. But hopefully everything will run smoothly.

Keep chuggin' along and you'll eventually get there. Looks good so far. I like the improvements you've made. !*salute*!
