Re: 'Ghost' sections on Corridor cross sections

Check the properties of one of the section views that is showing extra data - specifically the Sections tab.  You may find 'extra' copies of your corridor sections listed there.

I just checked and there are no 'extra' data sets in the section views with the ghosts. The OP just told me when she copied the file and then exploded one of the sections, then she got a listing of Track B and Track B(1) for the data in the section view.

here is the dropbox link if you want to look at the file.

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60944797/6191%20EDF%20-%20Standard.zip

 

It is ~10 meg zipped and close to 30 unzipped.

 

Moved the file to the public folder

I suspect that you have some data references that aren't included because when I open your file, not only do I not see any ghost sections, I don't see any proposed corridor sections.

 

The only thing I DO see is existing surface, section grid and what I'm guessing are exploded labels.

The ghosts are showing ONLY in the Track B portion of the corridor for anyone looking to download the file and take a closer look at it.

I am uploading the complete package with data shortcuts and xrefs to the same location.

(Give it about five minutes to get uploaded)

 

Like I said, I didn't create this, just trying to figure out what the OP did to create the issue.

 

And I REALLY appreciate the help from everyone here ;-)

Don, rebuild the corridors and the sections show up.

 

MK, there are 2 corridors showing because that is what is designed. There are 2 baselines overlapping and the sections are picking up both of the baselines. In this image you can see that I have selected the Track A Top corridor, which includes the Track B baseline (among others). Look at station 2+50 here and then compare to the Sectionview for the same station. Look at the subsequent stations and you will see that the 2 sections are separating, just as shown in plan.

 

To avoid this, place the Baselines in different corridors. Although I would think you'd want to see this, albeit with those regions where the tracks converge edited to allow for the convergence.

Yes, this is actually five new spurs and two new lines in a junction site

Yep, there are five spurs, two new main lines and the existing line along with multiple dich options in the same design, hence the size of the file and the use of Data Shortcuts.
