Where I live the speed limits are:
- Dirt roads: 20-30km/h (12.5/19mph) (here the dirt roads are almost all in terrible conditions)
- Concrete/asphalt roads and dirt roads in good conditions: 40km/h (25mph)
- Dual carriageways: 60kmh (37.5mph) or 80 km/h (50mph)
- Motorways: 100km/h (62.5kmh), 110km/h (69km/h) or 130 km/h (81mph)
Some of these speed limits are ridiculous (mainly the concrete/asphalt roads) but the dual carriageways and motorways ones looks fine. And the speed limits that TomausRP proposed looks too high. Well, I go for the mines.
Less than 100km/h for dual carriageways and 120km/h for motorways is uncommon in europe (only great britain, norway on motorways and sweden on motorways are below this).
Most of european countries have 130km/h on motorways, Italy up to 150km/h and Austria now up to 160km/h.
In the orient speed limits on motorways are between 120 and 160km/h (Iraq has had a minimum speed od 120km/h on the left lane on motorways...)
India has no speed limit
China has 120 - 130km/h
Thailand has 120- 130km/h
USA most states have 75mph = 120km/h, Texas 80mph...
And no country of the more than 40 countries I have visited and where I used a car had a speed limit under 80km/h on concrete and asphalt roads outside city limits...
I was in spain this summer - the 120km/h limit seems widely ignored....
I am sure - also railways in reality uses this to upgrade capacity of lines.
And why do you think we have lower speed limits in the rush-hour or at highly frequented motorways in so many agglomerations worldwide????
It is a fact that if all vehicles drive the same speed the capacity of a line/road is used at the best. And I am sure: That applies also to games.
And if to manage the capacity of a line is micromanagement - is it micromanagement to double-track a line????? Or to upgrade a junction???
By the way: If I answer to different postings and would like to quote these postings then this is not possible in only ONE posting.
A double-post doesn't mean two different postings which follow each other, it means the same content (or the same posting) postet several times without reason.
If something else would be meant this reference would be senseless: "We realise that these are often accidental.".
Users have here also threads where they offer their newest add-ons for Loco and TTD, there often many posts of the same user follow each other (e.g. here: viewtopic.php?p=518191#518191
)- all double posts? I don't think so...
