@KTheBritMC I am basing this type of region off of the northern Appalachians, such as the Berkshires, the Whites, and the Green Mountains.
iiEarth, that is a completely uncalled for comment and it dismisses the legitimate concerns Mstr had. You should be ashamed.
I agree with you mstr that the state of national rail is poor. I would love to and wouldn’t mind going through all the rail in the country and straightening it and evening the curves to make it map-grade. However, current leadership has told me I am not allowed to do this, and that I should leave it to state owners.
It appears that the rails may never be able to be good quality if this is the stance of leadership.
