[UPDATE 11/19/19] Silverton Railroads Online Satellite Image Map

November 19, 2019 09:38PM avatar
Well, it has been almost two months and I've been working hard on adding more content to the map. Mostly, I've gotten a few requests to include the full Silverton Branch, so I did just that. You will now find on this map not only the mainline to Silverton from Durango, but also many little things like Tefft Spur, Irelands Siding, correct Durango Smelter Spurs, and a lot of industrial spurs within the Durango yard limit. A friend was able to loan me some ICC Valuation maps of the Silverton branch, enabling me to put some great detail into the map I otherwise would have been oblivious about.

So while the link may take you to the same position of the map as last time, just zoom out to make your way south, and new content should be present south of Elk Park. A few adjustments have been made in and north of Silverton based on feedback from the last update and some other small changes, but this update primarily focuses farther south.

I have also overhauled the map description and key for clarity and to add new info, I'd recommend taking a read through it if you get a chance.

Please do give suggestions and/or feedback, I'm always trying to improve this map, and your input could be really helpful.

In the Needleton area, I've encountered a strange and annoying glitch with Google MyMaps, where it would no longer allow me to edit points for the "D&RGW Rockwood to Needleton" line. This happened in an area where I had intended for the line to end anyway, but the issue is that from there, it takes a hard sharp 90° turn across the Animas River before continuing to Silverton. I have no idea how to fix this, I've been looking into it but have yet to find a solution. So if you can, try to ignore that because at the moment there is nothing I can do about it. This glitch is also preventing me from creating a Google Earth .KML file. When attempting to open it and convert it to a KML, Google Earth will refuse to open it.
