I built a station in a manner in which I knew it was going to cause problems but I wanted to try it anyway as I thought it would look cool
I'm playing a FIRS game so I want to increase production in mines/farm etc. by delivering supplies. Only +/- 80 supplies are needed everything 3 months so I run a short supply train and I use long trains for the main cargo.
The goal I had was to have a little side-station for the supplies to be dropped off in while the main station is used for the main cargo (see screenshot)
Platform 1 is for the small train
Platform 2 is for the larger trains
You guessed what would happen. A length 7 train stuck in the length 3 platform blocking up everything. I tried to alleviate this by adding a way point but sometimes the large train still ends up in the small station.
Are there any other tricks besides waypoints to use?
PS - I thought of having the small station separate but I wanted to try it as one station if possible and use that as a backup solution.
