Has anyone created a Network Dataset for rail? I am trying to create one from http://cta.ornl.gov/transnet/RailRoads.html which has a lot of good data but unfortunately I am new to Network Analyst. The Paris example makes it seem straight forward, but unfortunately it is not with this rail dataset. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. I just dont want to have problems with turns and hierarchy which is very restrictive for rail cars.
