Enjoy.
I noticed in the first shot you have a 'wait at signal' station block just before the station is this to give passenger trains priority?

I avoided it for a while because I already had a loaded trackst file.
The Diesels in my shots are from Walters website and not the BR pack FYI...

It works like this, but main reason was that there is elevation and heavy freight trains were going very slow and route was cleared for them blocking whole junction. So I had to make them stop in front of signal a head of the junction. Now passenger trains dont have to wait ages to use junction till freight train will pass the bridge.


As you see in the picture. Freight train was first to the junction, but had to stop and meanwhile EMUs have clear route to go.

Having some spare time, I played LoMo and decided my network should be more complex.

Added few junctions and 'renewed' one line with 2 stations. This lets me create new train routes and a few jams. Well, the more complicated, the funnier.

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.

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.
