MICHIGAN PAPER RAILROADS MAP v2.0

Unread postby Saturnalia » Wed May 09, 2012 6:12 pm

With all that has been happening in our Paper Railroads Group, it is time we re-do our map. This map will be ONLY Michigan. (Midwest or maybe even US map to come shortly after we figure this out).
Please, download the following Map of Michigan Railroads, and use your "paint" program of Choice to edit it by coloring to show where your lines are. Then, upload it to the RRfan.com Gallery...please avoid Flickr :) . To finish, post here so I know you are done. Since I need all of them to make the final map, please try to finish BY THIS WEEKEND!

Please refrain from buying/merging line until this map has been completed WITHOUT re-doing your map here and EDITING OUT your old one. Thank you.

The map you should use:

My map is already up in the G&O thread. Any color will do on the map.

Please Post it here anyway....

Also, atrain gave me an idea: You can choose your color. But, you cannot choose your color until your picture is uploaded...so first come, first serve. I will list the used colors in the first post. Your map dosn't have to have the same color as you want it :D

Oh yeah, just remembered: If you have 2 or more different railroads, please put each in a different color and tell which is which...

Okay, here is my map. I apologize in advance for the horrible way it looks, but its very hard to draw abandoned rail lines for one, two I couldn't blow up the map enough to read town names so I guessed on a few spots, and three this is the first time I ever used the paint program on my computer. So I apologize for the sloppiness of it but thats the best you can get from me. Please, whoever redoes this, show me with trackage rights into Elkhart from Three Rivers and trackage rights on the JAIL from Jackson to Rives Jct. I tried to make dotted lines but they look absolutely horrible!

PS - I apologize profusely, but I apparently have no clue how to upload images to posts either. Its in the RRfan gallery under my username conrailman75 and I titled it Michigan rail lines.

Under the picture on the viewing page, there is a box entitled "message board code". Copy and paste all of it as it is, and it will show up.

DT&I---What colors do you want? List of taken up on the first post.

Also, both the PC and the TSCR claim to own the same INER line (part of the ex OC&M mainline). Figure it out :D

No big rush is suppose because I forgot to grab my charging cord for my computer for the weekend @ grandpa's, so my computer is DEAD :cry:

Are you going to be making a US map too? We have four railroads with most trackage outside Michigan.
