You can draw an extended centerline for any runway in your airspace with "FC [iCAO] [RUNWAY]" (e.g. "FC KMSP 12L" - make sure you throw a leading zero on any runway numbered 1-9)


From there, use the headings you learned while working your way up to Center, or resort back to the time-honored method of vectoring at most ARTCCs: "Turn XX degrees left/right, say new heading"

Worth noting that ([Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming your facility file has been set up correctly) ERAM is oriented to TRUE north, not magnetic. So, a 360 heading won't be straight up, it'll be off by whatever your magnetic variation is set to. So you can use that, as well as geographic references or runway/approach centerlines on your videomaps to vector.
