Hi everybody,
Here's something I've been meaning to put up on the forums for a while: my epic screenshot story of a transport company through time.
Anyway, enjoy, don't be afraid to ask for stuff because I still have ALL savegames, and please leave comments!

EDIT: I've restarted this thread because I have some other screenshots I want to show everyone. They are not related to the previous story.
There are also a few videos - take a look at my YouTube channel. :)

Here we go...

In the year 1820, Edward C. Pick founded a small company which provided horse and cart services between the cities of Ponsford, Futway, Brinton and Tenningville. The coaches were built by the world-famous coachbuilder Zephyris, who would contine to provide road vehicles for E. Pick and Co.

File comment: The city of Ponsford is the capital of whatever state it's in. It is currently 1820 and the company has just been founded.

(Please excuse the cropping fail)

In 1824, E. Pick and Co. , being very successful in their coach business, decided to expand their reaches. A rail line was built to carry coal from a nearby mine to the ironworks in Tenningville. The Industrial Revolution is in full swing.
THe next year, from the relatively fast income from the coal line, an iron ore route was constructed. However, the ore was high up on the tablelands, and so a steep pass had to be built to access it.

Steam traction has arrived. And with it, a new passenger railway line Ponsford-Brinton-Tenningville.

(edit) Oops the first one got left out somehow!

File comment: This Clipper transports mail to some distant towns. Well, distant for 1830's times. Also, why do the horse drawn trams need catenary? Well, Mr. Pick added them in case some rams of the future might need these "wires" to run. Many people think he's crazy, but then he runs the business so well.

Sorry DanMack, didn't see you there.

The trains are from an Early Rail UKRS extension viewtopic.php?f=26&t=41132
which, interestingly, you posted in! You must have forgotten! lol

Thanks,
Jake

You could just choose to take pictures in 800x600 format. (Game Options -> Screen Resolution ->800x600)

Well, it's too late for that, I've already made all of the screenshots up until 2030 or so. So this won't be one of those short-lived companies that only go from 1920 and get sold before 2000. No, the story will continue :D

Thanks for watching, we'll be right back.

Where did you get...

a) The map(less important)
b) The sailing ships
c) The steam/horse trams
d) The roads

They just look really interesting!

nice! regarding the eGRVTS, I don't usually see the horses and all, because I play in a later (1985+) time frame. I ought to try playing in an earlier time zone. And again, nice screenies... wot wot!

Try playing with vehicles never expire on, I always do. I feel it can add variety to a game when I can choose between more vehicles to suit my needs. For this reason I also like the engine pool. Indeed it is interesting to play a 19th century game once in a while :)

Thanks for watching,
Jake
