If you want to get space for 24 mb use a simple freewebs account so you can get about 45 mb k

Bleh,

Looks Nice! I like the station. Nice job with the trees. Hoever, it too close to the lift hill. There is a wide pedestrian path that the oubound and return trains cross. Also, on the way out of the station, there is a small drop before the train turns to the lift chain. Also, I think your pretzle loop at the turnaround needs some tweaking.

Keep it up!

I have only been to CP once and it was 10+ years ago. Weren't there tunnels (covered track, not underground) on the Magnum?

Otherwise, it looks good and close to what I remember.

However, its too close to the lift hill.

Don't get what you mean...

There is a wide pedestrian path that the oubound and return trains cross.

I know... Its just the fact that I wasn't worrying that much about scenery and paths, but there is still a path...

Also, on the way out of the station, there is a small drop before the train turns to the lift chain.

Yes. Did you know I also did this recreation from memory? I used only a few pictures to recreate it.

Also, I think your pretzle loop at the turnaround needs some tweaking.

How?

Weren't there tunnels (covered track, not underground) on the Magnum?


From Readme:

2. There are no tunnels



Video Coming in a few hours.

You need to add track and move the station (as looking at it from the lift hill) to the left about 40-50 feet.

The pretzel loop: your layout is good, but the outbound side is one continuous uphill banking curve till it gets to the mid point, then it is a continous banking curve down to the return track. There is no flat track on that loop.

Good job for "from memory" though. :up:

I meant tunnels as in scenery covering the track. Not going into the ground (which the Magnum doesn't do anyway).

I know. I didn't make them. The main reason is they would look very very bad.
