One thing that annoys me and it's even in Payware sceneries in FSX is that road/rail bridges that get stuck on water and can't be removed so show up under bridges. (I've even got payware sceneries with that issue) but another nice little pack there Lawrie... thumbup1.gif

Yes, it annoys me too. One area where FS9 was actually better,........... the roads and railways stopped at the edge of the water.
The railway bridge and the road bridge you see there in the screenshots are ones ive placed there. They are both made up of default FSX components, but look more like the real thing than the other 2 default ones that were there when i started on the scenery.
I toyed with the idea of covering the railway track and road on the water , with a water polygon from the AFX program i use to construct AFCAD's, but i couldnt make up my mind which looked worse, the road/railway track, or the darker blue water polygon.
I suppose i could have shut my eyes and pretended the darker blue water ploygon was just the shadow of the bridges on the water......................
