There has to be tracks left or else there would be no class ones to interchange with.

Sorry it's taking me awhile. I'm still trying to figure out how to highlight my tracks and upload and stuff like that.

Had a half day today (first day of new trimester), so I FINALLY found time to make the track map for the DR&EC. It's tracks and rights are in purple.
I don't know why the pic is showing up so small, but MQT will probably use something to maximize it when he makes the final map :)

the only reason it's small in the post is when you copied the link from the gallery, you forgot to delete the part where it says thumb, which occurs right before the file name:

Copy the file in the gallery, and paste it into Microsoft paint if you have a windows computer system. then, just use a plain old line to trace your routes. don't worry about neatness, I just need to see which route. DON'T forget to highlight the approximate location of any abandoned routes your trains run on. Then, save it, upload it to the gallery, then paste it here ( don't spend too much time trying to paste it here....If you have too, simply copy the URL)

I did notice that, but I wasn't sure if you bought that track or if you laid your own. Looks like we'll have to work out some rights :D

If you're talking about the Detroit-Toledo route, I have rights on the Class I's tracks. You did say you laid your own track to Toledo, right?

The DGRP owns what is really CSX track until the MI-OH border. From there the DGRP has trackage rights on CSX to interchange at Stanley Yard. We also have trackage rigths over the NS & CSX from Porter Jct to CSX's Barr Yard for interchange. CP has trackage rights from the tunnel in DET to Porter, where they start their rights on NS

Ok so I'm probably going to add my T&PRR to the mix, I own the real life existing line from Petoskey to Traverse City, assuming no one else has it. I'll get a map out soon hopefully.

And now that I'm in the group, MQT3001 I need your TYBY RS1 from C&M! (yeah I know you said ok already) :)

Okay, it will be set-out at the GLC interchange @ Ann Pere tomorrow evening with the rest of the cars from the GDRP (MQT by then :mrgreen: ) to the GLC

Ok so Ypsi, I guess I'm asking you to run freight ops on my line and pending stockholder approval leasing of one GP-35, one TSPY high hood and the NW2.

Also @MQT the RS1 is also coming or not on based stockholder approval, although I can't see it being turned down. :)

Here's my map.
