Hi all,

It's been a while since I've posted to this forum, mostly because my old computer was too crappy to run Trainz half decently and I lost interest.  However, I've recently built my own kick-butt computer and can run TS12 without skipping a beat... even on the most detailed routes.  I'm finally getting back into Trainz.

So, that being said, I'm getting back on the route-building scene.  Some of you may remember my long-since-dead Florida S-Line Project or Bone Valley routes.  Obviously, both of those are gone now and I've lost interest in them since I moved out of Florida.  I'm now a Tennessee resident and would like to build a local route.  The line I've set my sights on is the CSX KD Subdivision between Corbin, KY and Etowah, TN, running through Knoxville, TN.  It's a great line to model that I feel I can do fairly well now that I have a good computer to do it on.  Plus there is a TON more content (particularly from the fine folks at Jointed Rail) that I can use to make the route better and build it faster.

Therefore, my first inquiry has to do with TransDEM.  I plan on using a DEM to create my route, but have no idea how to use the program.  And before I blow 30-40 bucks on the program, I'd like to get some input from everyone here on how easy it is to use.  Would it be simple to use for a newbie like me?

Any help from you guys is much appreciated.  I look forward to getting back on this forum.  You've got a fine group of content-builders that I can learn a lot from, especially since I feel like I'm having to relearn it all.  Thanks in advance!

-Evan

Dang, what are the chances?!  If you guys are still around, let me know.  I'd be happy to give y'all a tour.  I live in Maryville now.

Good to have you back Evan!

Thanks!  I appreciate it.  I'm happy to be back. Smiley

Anyone have any comments regarding the user-friendliness of TransDEM?
