Almost all the Footbridges for the Bitumen Platforms are done. A few lights to add to the bridge as looks like I missed some and some non-track ones to do.

Had a go at making ramps for access to the footbridges.

I've completed the footbridges for the Bitumen Platforms and majority of the Bitumen Platforms.

I changed the ground tile as base of the footbridge with the ramps and planted some flowers. These with the concrete path will connect with some of the car parks and other non-track flowers. Flowers come with and without the lamps.

Intend to re-do the modern footbridges, but not be for a few months as I want to visit some railway station in Sydney to get some ideas for the modern footbridges, especially those with lifts.

The Footbridge game file is here if like to try. New Platform file and non-track file be in next post.

Experimenting with a idea mainly for my personal use, but you might like too.

It is for Wide Island Platforms.
Wide Island Platforms_01.png
Wide Island Platforms_01.png (66.67 KiB) Viewed 1367 times
What got me into this idea is there is not enough room to make a nice building on normal Island Platforms. It too squashy and the platform is narrow compared to those for single sided platforms.

So I trying this idea making non-track platforms to go between 2 Single Sided Platform pieces. It will allow more room for nice size buildings.

The track that needs to loop around the platform a bit like they are in real.

Thanks for your support. Will keep experimenting with this idea as really like to make it work. Could mean a rebuild of all the other station buildings I did for single sided platforms so that look better with the Island idea.

Shall keep fddling around with buildings and also looking at photos I have taken of railway stations to get some ideas.

Cheers

Still working on ideas for the wider platforms.

Many Stations in Australia are of similar design and have pylons to support the awnings that extend out onto the platforms. The platforms at these stations are also wider compared to many city stations

Like in this photo of Uralla Railway Station. (Photo courtesy of NSWRail.net at https://www.nswrail.net/lines/nsw-lines.php).

So I have some experimenting to do. How to make my platforms wider so can use those awning with the pylons :roll:

I wondering would you use curved platforms?
:shock: Is that possible? If so, I most likely would - never would have considered to ask about that because I did not think it was possible. It would help in various places, though, where the alternative would be to tear down half a village or do major landscaping in order to fit a station.

The curved bit would be a fake/overlap piece. Trains would not recognise it as a actual platform. But for those who like to add some realism to stations especially if making a copy of a real station, it might look ok.
