Hi,

Norbert, who AFAIK is also involved in the XTracks-Developments is currently working on some new gadget for all MSTS junkies. First of all, he is developing replacements for the standard KUJU-Tracks, which can be used to instantly upgrade every route much like ScaleRail (just with European characteristics):

The new tracks will have embankments. However he is going to retain the track profile of the KUJU'nk tracks to keep a smooth transition to XTracks (for which replacements - if at all - will be made at a much later date).

The tracks will have different ways of fixing the rails to the sleepers like the rail clamps used in the following image.

The other new development, Norbert is working on and which I want to present here is tracks for high-speed railway lines, including 200 kph-certified switches and a concrete right-of-way.

330 kph!

I am just posting this here to show just one more example of how much creativity there still is in the scene and that new features are being added over the time. Very exciting! smile.gif
