Hello, pardon the lack of formatting for this post, I'll be trying to update this over time as I am new here.
I've been wanting to do something in California for a while now, but had little means or motivation to until now. I was given an awesome 4k×8k heightmap of California (attribution soon! wanted to post this before forgot to) and have been working on this off-and-on for a while. My goal is to recreate a decent rail system in California, including Amtrak, CalTrain, BART, MetroLink, California HSR, and perhaps light rail stuff too. I'm still deciding stuff about which newGRFs to include, but yeah.
Here's a preview of most of the progress
And a preview of both the Bay Area and LA Basin areas. I am using online maps (openstreetmap and Google Maps) to try to place cities roughly where they ought to be. It won't be 100% most likely :/
If you have any suggestions for newgrfs or whatnot I'm all-ears
Also, I'll be updating this as progress is made. If there's formatting I need to do, I'll fix it too, just let me know ^_^
Edit 1 (2-1-2018): Just made the attached pictures smaller. Also, considering using FIRS3 for the map once it's done. Also, quick question for anyone interested: pondering making the interstates elevated...and two one-way streets. Perhaps it should be elevated but one two-way?
