Thanks James (and Dave).

Yes, that is the Bathgate line as you discovered, though it only goes for around a mile. I plan on sticking a portal on the end of it.

One thing I haven't really made much use of up until now, is the embankment spline. I'd totally forgotten them but then came across the djbuk ones by davidbird and I like them a lot. In the screen shot below, it's easy to see the difference to the track bed in using a spline over the smooth spline tool, the latter creating a very large plateau. Every day is a school day!

Having replaced the smooth spline effort and replaced with an embankment spline, this is the updated point where the Edinburgh - Glasgow and Edinburgh - Fife lines diverge. Saughton House is in the background and the houses in the foreground are per real positions. Anyone who saw my post about traffic lights will see a collection of same to the left. Reference material. :D

That collection of traffic lights still looks less cluttered than half the junctions around Birmingham these days.

I've done the same on my L&B route only had to make my own as 2ft is a lot narrower! I did some Standard gauge ones as well mainly to match my ground textures havent got round to uploading them yet though.
Trying to use smooth spline for embankments looks horrible and ridiculous for narrow gauge!

I'd used it on another embankment but the thought hadn't occurred to me to use it elsewhere. A far better looking result. I can imagine how it must look on a narrow gauge track!

Working on urban areas is a royal pain in the arse as there's just so much to do so I took a break in the countryside for a few hours, filling in textures and starting to add scenery. This is the area east of Ratho. Although the route is roughly based on the 80s/90s, I have added the M8 extension as can be seen in the background.

It thought I'd take a look at my progress on this route and it was surprisingly bad. The first image is August 2019, the second today! All the areas showing texture are essentially complete but other than a small area around Camelon, that's pretty much all I've done so far. Maybe I'm being too fussy.
