Virtual Cartography: Railworks 2013 Routes

Railworks 2013 has a built-in editor, which displays the GPS coordinates of each quick drive location on a route. Using that information I have created Google Earth/Maps versions of each of the 24 routes I currently have for the simulator.

The routes I have can be broken down into UK routes (15), US routes (6) and mainland Europe routes (3).

If you wish to add the information to your own Google Earth/Maps you can do so by downloading and opening this .kmz file. It’s very small and contains all 24 routes in an organised structure.

Alternatively, the list below contains links to each of the territories as an overview, then each route in detail. The title will take you to a google maps version and below each is a .jpg, which you can view at the original size by clicking through. I may add more information to these later, but for now I am pleased to have created a resource I will find useful. Perhaps someone else will too.
