    Default Walthers 130' Turntable and Modern Roundhouse "Module" XTC param files

    If it's of any interest the attached files are my take on the Walthers 130" table and the roundhouse that goes along with it. If you're interested please work with them and let me know what you think.

    It may be of note that the Roundhouse module is a piece of sectional track that can be attached to any of the outlet routes of the TT. I still need to work on the TT file so that it inserts where I want it to, but this is at best a beta release.

    Comments please. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Default Parameter File Update

    Glad it was of some use. I updated that file and forgot to post the update, which is attached. It differs from the first one in that the TT insertion point is in the center of the bridge. I also changed the color a bit and added exhaust stacks at the back of the roundhouse module. Also included in the new file is the Walthers 933-3204 Engine House. It corrects what I felt were some dimensional problems with the version that was packaged with XTC. The smoke stacks are positioned as they are in the kit I have. The track spacing appears to be 1.5" C-C.

    You mind if we add these to the next version of XTC?

    No problem at all if you think that they're worthy. I'd be honored.
