Qatenary

My favourite catenary used to be the Dutch Catenary, however I felt that it looked a bit too big compared to the scale of stations and trains.....
Also I was a bit unhappy with the way catenary looks in OpenTTD, I missed something.... Like two pylons on either side of a track with a crossbeam over the track.

I experimented a lot and finally came up with this idea:

A new catenary design, that works on its own, but combined with extra graphics provided by Waypoints (included in the GRF), you can come up with things like this:

Hope you like it! ;-)

GRF can be found on the ingame downloadsection (BaNaNas)

Many thanks to other catenary developers, their drawings helped me a lot with developing this idea.
Many thanks to GarryG, his work on fake sidings inspired me to impliment this idea into an actual GRF.

Also, I felt that some of the Dutch Signals were too long/high (especially compared to this new catenary design).
I have made some changes to those graphics and would like to donate them here (as I am not able to find a development thread of that GRF....):

Thank you for the work done :)) Looks very beautiful. Now, each player will be able to build rails as in real life due to this GRF :D .

Looks nice and call... but isn't it suppose to be catenary? I didn't know that was another word spelt differently in other languages.
