Yeah i started doin that as you can see above the bridge but my approval is well below zero so i couldn't be bothered, i started building a river so i could cross it with a road/rail combo bridge like in your earlier shot dedmicz thought that would be much more fun than planting loads of trees

I always thought the 0% rating was a bug. Sometime I had planted trees everywhere I could but it took maybe ten years until it finally went up. Always be sure to never let it come to that.

Well when the approval is at 0% it could actually be a minus figure so you have to bring it back to 0% before you see an increase at least i think it works like that (for some reason)

I have improved most of my approach line to be less 'hideous' i think they look a lot better now actually

The trams are from the loco fan page, they're German trams don't know their class

Yeah they don't look that good actually, am trying to replicate a road bridge where the approaches are brick and the bit that spans the track are steel or iron but it's not really working

Nice shot now thats a busy early british suburban railway scene. 1968 so the steam engines could be heading for Barry shortly! Nice little touch with the crane parked in the siding!

The Large Logo livery and NSE wouldn't be in use yet, and even Rail Blue is pushing it (one or two new engines in Rail Blue, the rest in green like the Deltic) but otherwise, nice screenshot :)

Some of them was just test combinations and once I finished testing, I've forgot to remove them.



Meanwhile, being bored I recalled that I've seen somewhere here, OTTD thread I guess, routes diagrams. I've liked them so I made one. Everything created in MS Paint, so surprisingly to me, it looks really good (maybe I'm the one who thinks so). Here it is.

All routes are now operational, some of them need polishing or little fixes. Some stations will be rebuilded to increase effectivness. One of recently rebuilded station is Tinstoke. New track has been added and middle track is terminating one for trains from Dinton direction and trains heading towards Dinton at the same time.
