Hi all, been slack with the tracks as busy with other projects especially roads.

Kruemelchen's "Country Roads (NRT)" gave me an idea. The snow templates he made for roads, why not also use them for railway tracks?

So I been experimenting and got this result.

Now a question for those we live where it snows and near railway lines. When they snow is ploughed along the railways .. does this uncover the sleepers as well? OR maybe the sleepers stay hibernating and just the rails can be seen like in the image above.

Here my AuzRailSet file for you to try and let me know if I should show the sleepers or leave them as they are?

While I was making Footbridges for my station set got idea for the catenary for the rail set.

What if I reduce the gap between the top Catenary Wire and the Contact Wire. This slight change to help the top wire to fit better under bridges and other items that go over the top of the tracks.
This diagram will give you and idea what I talking about (I hope).

On Left is old style and right is the new style of Catenary. (But not sure which is the better)

So I tried this idea with the Gantry Catenary.
Previous version.

and new version.

The new version has allowed me to add the Contact System to the Gantry. Previous version because the top wire so close to the gantry there wasn't much room to add the Contact System.

Next post will upload the game file so you can test it yourself and let me know if I on the right track.

Here the game file.

Only the "Electrified Rail 1 Pylons (Rail & Wire Fence)" and "Electrified Rail 1 Gantry (Rail & Wire Fence)" been changed.

The "Electrified Rail 2 Pylons (NO Fence)" and "Electrified Rail 2 Gantry (NO Fences)" still the old way .. this so can compare the difference.

If no objections I will change all the catenary to match this new idea.

So many of you seem to like the alteration I made to the catenary by lowing the top wire.

I've have now altered all the catenary tracks to use this new idea. Also looking at another idea.

The Gantry Catenary I removed the pylons from one of the sets so you can get this effect.

There are 2 Gantry Pylon Catenary sets.

The "Electrified 1 Gantry (Wire Fence)" is the outer tracks with the fence and pylons.

The "Electrified 2 Gantry (NO Pylons and Fence )" is the 2 centre tracks.

Also changed the pylon colours to one set and called it "Electrified New Pylons (NO Fences)". Because it new looking I set these to become available in 1970. There is no Gantry set to go with these.

Here both the game file and the source for those who like to use any of what I done for their own sets.
