  1. What software are you using to create your track plans?

  3. Thanks. They look great.

  4. Recently I was looking through old magazine articles and saw your article on the C&O Mountain subdivision modules. Do the modules still exist? If so, have they been expanded?

    Also, could you provide me insight into the relative positions of the C&O and N&W depots in Waynesboro, VA? When I look at google maps, it looks like the N&W depot would be in the middle of Commerce Street. Any insight would be appreciated.
