You can get the mine carts, trucks and the better looking coalmine from this link; viewtopic.php?f=40&t=48136&hilit=cartload you can also get the tram line steam trains and trucks for all industries from the loco fan page

These are actually really good! Makes a change from the constant US stuff that people usually make on LoMo.

As my game moves into the 1990s increased traffic has forced me to re-do some of my layouts, like a big overhaul of the track at Charton

Here are some screens from my curret game, Passenger and mail only is the game, the object is to produce a profitable Passenger and Mail network.

The first station built was the Overwell and Blackhall station, this serves the two towns/cities and has three lines terminating here.

Fillingstoke & Bankston City were next on the first line, the line was mainly single track with passing places built, however as profits and traffic increased the line was doubled.

Barston level junction and station

Longwood Terminus, this is the end of the line. A service from Longwood goes to a small village of Birdwood a short trip down the line.

Fillingstoke & Bankston City stations are the next calls after Overwell & Blackhall Terminus. The Fillingstoke station was build on the bridge as the line was built at this point.

The new line was built to connect to Great Queenstown from the Overwell & Blackhall Terminus, this passed Barston to the south/west. A new station was built where the line drops down. When the line became busy with express trains bypass bridges were built to pass this station, however they were still brick bridges to speed was still restricted.

The Longwood Junction was built to allow faster travel(with the bypass bridges) between Longwood and Overwell & Blackhall. This allowed express trains to run direct with no delays.

Further Expansion of the rail network started with works to the west of Longwood, but due to instructions to build through stations in the 4 line configuration caused issues especially when building the tunnels started to eat up much of the profit built over the years, work slowed and sometimes even halted due to this.

Again due to the top wishing all new through stations to be built to allow express trains to pass through towns, they started to refuse the company from building through their towns, however after negotiations and a small wood planting the towns soon started to see the benifits of rail travel!

Commonworth station area was built at a different level to the road, therefore the over pass brick bridge was built, this was later upgraded to earth enbankment and steel bridge allowing faster train times.

Trickleville station caused issues as the company was forced to build a bridge over the road to drop down to ground level to connect onto the towns of Corwstoke and Charstoke to the south.

Crowstoke town station, this connects direct to Charstoke, where lines connect and depart from. The duel tracks to the East and West both come from Charstoke, the Eastern line goes to Trickleville. The Western line is a proposed line to the far West of the Map curving round to Longwood.

Charstoke station, initially built as a 4 platform station but soon expaned to six when the line to the North East connected up with Flurryston.

Charstoke after the building of the Flurryston connection line. The express trains bypass the local trains calling at the station but the junction to the east, taking the line to the south where the lines rejoin heading onto Flurryston. The straight line to the East still ends up at Flurryston but goes via the small town of Great Longston.

As you can see the reign of Diesels are now approaching, however these were the first lines to use Diesels as all of the other lines still used steam up untill the late 1960's.

Flurryston connections, with Great longston station built on the bridge. As the land increases height there was a few curves built to take the line up and around to the new Terminus

I agree with that, the station platforms also seem to disappear when zoomed out.
