Did you plant all those trees by yourself?! I seriously hate how locomotion gets rid of trees at some point and no new ones appear, that's not how nature works!

Thanks Badger and LocoRoller. Planting all those trees wasn't in vain. :D

Irmo, I was doing that for a while, then I recalled that I could use Auto Pause's Auto Click key and it was 10 times faster.



Added airport link, here's the pic.

^Like the tunnel entrance a lot! Very creative use of road bridges.

I like what you did, with the rough road as a tunnel :)

Does that train unload underneath the airport?

Thanks A LOT guys. Looked through screenshots threads and was suprised nobody used it yet. It will look even better without that walls. Just have to allow rough roads too cross.



@LocoRoller
It does. There are few buildings in the area of airport.



Im on the road now and don't have LoMo here soI will post more screens once I'm back.


Cheers.

I decided that such a big city deserves integrated transportation system including Metro Rail, Trams, Buses, Underground and Rail. Metro Rail and Underground already exist, so I started creating Tram service system. I will add buses later.

Looks like you need more BR stock, and I am working on it, although 5 KB download isn't fun :P.

Hi there. Not really much time to play. Sad to see nobody posting screens anymore, to change it I will provide you movie showing off one of my route.


Trains mostly use East Mainline, however right after Crowfield it splits and train use recently built branch line to airport.

Here's the movie:

Its a bit quite here so i have some junctions from my latest game, its again a passenger/mail only map.

The first is a busy Pebblehattan Junction, this was initially a Y junction, the lines from right to left were added to allow trains to run in either direction on the main line...

The next is Smallley Junction, which is the just to the bottom left of the above shot, this junction allows the trains to run on the line top right which is the loop line to the right of the above shot.

A busy Dartworth Junction, there is a DMU waiting at the signal to cross over from the Main to the local line on the right. The Diesel is comming from a terminus to the left and joining the main line.

Nice but personally I'd use grade separation with dive unders and fly overs to cut out the junction conflicts and speed up the train services through there by removing the need to wait at signals for the train to cross in front of them

I have flyovers on the high speed routes however these are made in tight spaces that mean flat juntions, the only issue i have is with Dartworth Junction, it can jam up as trains are shorter than the signal distances... The other two junctions work quite well to be honist.

May as well make a return on here.....

This route revolved around this station, it was purely for realism and it was a long time ago that I made, and lost it, hence the obviously cheated money :lol:

Harbon 1, I really like the clean simplicity of those screens. I'll even overlook some slightly dodgy point work! It even makes me wanna play LoMo again!

Thank you, and well, semaphore junctions were never exactly simple!

Its a shame MjD didn't go anywhere with his distant signals, they would be perfect for British scenarios, and someone that has OCD for realism like me :D

This looks mighty complicated. Though it could be quite easy in reality. Pray tell, was it a complicated build?
