Lat/Long Reader
flags and pins

One of the features introduced with TRS2004 was the ability to use real world coordinates to locate objects in a Trainz route. The only problem was knowing what the actual coordinates were for a particular place. The built-in object, called a trig-station had a very small, you could almost call it discrete, display that was only readable when you were very close to the object.

So I decided to create a Latitude/Longitude Reader with an oversized display on top and three gigantic repeating aerial displays surrounding the object.

The object is also Surveyor only type of object. That means that it is only visible when you are creating in the Surveyor module of Trainz. When you switch to the Driver module which is where you get to drive around your map or take a ride in an AI controlled train, the Lat-Long Reader object is invisible.
