    @Helio Lopes , there are video tutorials that show how to avoid those
    crossing problems, you could have googled for this, but apparentely, you were too lazy...

    @ kipate: I've tried it many times and many angles and it doesn't work for me.
    At best, I can only get one track to intersect.
    Is there some type non collision mod you may be using that I don't have?
    I already use:
    zzzzzz_Timofp_Flexibility_Mod_v1.0
    ZZZ_hwy_allow_intersection

    Thanks kipate, I'll give it a try in a test city.

    Another Note:
    It behaves erratic and crashes the game on any custom, full resource map when you try to build a road connection or get close to the purple band.
    A crash can be avoided and real connection can be established by using a short section of any road and then connecting the tracks to it.

    Yeah, in the XL version, Clemech4 mentioned not to use too many intersections of that rails...
    I guess you will need to back up even more often^^

    The Small Collision Box Mod doesn't work for making switches either and doesn't do well in XXL overall. It creates a serious lag.
    Some unexpected, but cool, results though.
    Images below depict a "small road"(no collision) upgraded to "rail", which loses all rails and crossties, and then back to "small road" again.

    yeah, that is usual, ronrn, hence I suggested only to use some small pieces...

    The images above are kind of misleading. For attempts at making the switches I only used a road just long enough to make the curve intersect.

    Until problems with being too close to the map edge are fixed this mod is sadly unusable. Also I didn't see any kind of switches in XXL version, just the track. Plus I found I couldn't make a tunnel, I was hoping to use this with the rail station in the Paris Pack and run rails away underground to avoid running them near a map edge and have the rail lines conveniently disappear.

    By "switches" I mean manually overlapping the tracks/roads over each other and aligning individual tracks to create the illusion of track switchyards.

    ronrn,
    Hard to tell from that video picture but it looks now like someone used a road to make that switch-looking connector. I'll have to see if I can replicate the "illusion". Plus I wish I could make a road tunnel and switch it to rail to make the rail tracks look like they lead away underground.

    So maybe watching the video first before judging? ;)

    kipate,
    I watched the video and it told me nothing of value. Since I can't make an underground railroad this mod is of no value to me. Thanks for the suggestion but I need some real help in figuring out how to make a rail track disappear underground. Sadly the rail aspect of XXL is seriously lacking. A shame since in the Paris Pack is an awesome rail station transportation building and I'm trying to figure out how to make some rail tracks lead away underground so I don't have run rail near a map edge.
