Railroad bridges

Posted by Marlow on 23 November 2008 in English (English)

A few more stretches added in Roscommon and Galway.

On top of that, i've started to look at railroad bridges, or bridges in general. Obviously, if you cross a bridge, the map should indicate that.

Also important is, that if you meet a railroad bridge, where you have to go under, that the maxheight is specified. Can be handy to know upfront, that you can travel a road or not.

Good point there Marlow.
I've done lots of bridges, but have forgotten about the max height property.
Another thing to add to my list of things to remember when mapping :D

It just "hit" me, because we've got a van with hoist and that thing can't go under some of the railroad bridges.

Now, If we've already have a problem there, it becomes and issue and certainly does with special goods. So it definatly is important.
