Process for Downloading MR track plans?
Posted by Fallnflags on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 10:59 PM

Not sure if this is appropriate here, but as new subscriber I'm trying to down load some track plans from MR track plan data base.

Not a computer novis but I can't seem to find instructions or accomplish the process to down load (any) track plan from the site.  

From what I can deduce is after finding a plan, I click on the link for the appropriate magazine issue the plan is in.  Scroll down to the layout link and then....that's where nothing else seems to work, no link, no download button, no way to down load it.   

i understand the file should be a PDF download, so my OS platform/device should make no difference (using an iPad).

thanks.

Welcome to the forums!

Go to the Track Plan Database,  find the plan you want, click on it, and another page comes up with a more detailed description and drawing.

Scroll down and you will see the "Downloadable File", click on that, OR click on the drawing, as it says on the bottom of the drawing, and a seperate screen opens as a PDF file screen, and the plan appears.

Pretty easy and straight forward.

What plan are you looking at?

Mike.

Thank you for the reply. I’ll give it a try again. Not sure what layout I’m looking for, considering perhaps some sort of walk in.
