Update #865

Postby freebrickproductions » Tue Jun 26, 2018 3:34 am

Finally got this update out! As I had started the upload back on June 25th, and it's just now gotten up, I'm still gonna call it "on time". :Tongue2: This is also why the date on the home page is different from all of the other pages in the update. Not too much to say about it, other than the fact that I procrastinated on this update for several months when I probably shouldn't have. Though as a result of this update, I'm gonna be changing how I do updates, allowing for smaller updates to be more easily done and for bits and pieces of states to be updated at a time, rather than entire states at a time like I had been doing previously.

Also, every signalized crossing on the NS Memphis District East End is on the site now! And I've also linked a bunch of crossings together via the captions on the track view images. This allows y'all to go from crossing to crossing easily. Also, as a result, you can now more easily "follow" these lines from crossing to crossing on the site: the entire NS Memphis District East End, the entire HMCR Huntsville Branch, the entire Mercury & Chase, the CSX S&NA North Sub from Ardmore to Hanceville, the CSX S&NA South Sub from Helena to Verbena, and the CSX Lineville Sub from Helena to Talladega.

I have also overhauled the Alabama section by splitting it up into three subsections so you don't have to scroll forever just to see what's in Woodville, AL, for example.

But anyways, here's what's in the update:
128 pictures and 2 videos of 1 new crossing and 2 updated crossings in Alabaster, AL.
64 pictures and 2 videos of 2 updated crossings in Ardmore, AL.
279 pictures of 16 new crossings and 1 updated crossing in Attalla, AL.

As with any updates, if you notice any errors in this update, please post them below! I have no doubt I've made at least one mistake I haven't noticed (yet).
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Amazing job! From a 10 star rating from 1 being the worst and a 10 being the best, I give this update a 10 out of 10!!! :TUP2: Soon you will update Tennessee and Kentucky. I am getting crossing videos of Franklin Kentucky. I also hope you can upload pictures of the crossings I documented too.
As of right now, I am currently getting RR crossing pics from mostly Tennessee and Kentucky. And I have been getting Ohio pics as well. For the rest of the year, I will consist of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, and (possibly) Georgia RR Crossing Pictures. I may also see about getting out to Mississippi for RR crossings, but that remains to be seen.

Fixed. Also went through and fixed a bunch of messed-up links I found yesterday.

I also need to do a bit more researching.
