Fantastic scenario though, congrats. Would love to play on this map if you're willing to share it.
anyway, looking forward to seeing more of your games
I've been playing this game on and off since January using the JGR patch pack. The day length is set to x5 with a 1920 start date.
Map overview + company information
Brudinghall was the town where the company first got started. At this point it's relatively unimportant to the company, but the HQ remains in the town. The trackwork at the port stations was recently redesigned to improve traffic flow and prevent delays.
Overningbury is an interchange between two passenger routes, as well as a major junction. Once a major cause of delays, this area too has recently been redesigned.
This junction lies roughly halfway between Bronham and Overningbury. Its rather ugly form is unfortunately required to keep the traffic of the numerous routes passing though seperate, the original at grade junction being a constant source of delays.
Prarston station sits on one of the major rail arteries the company operates, with a large number of trains stopping at the passenger or metal workshop stations, or passing the station on one of the mainlines.
The trackwork at the other end of the tunnels under the city is less extensive and busy, but was also recently reworked.
Pluntborough station has also been reworked, but remains a problem area due to the space limitations of the alcohol station.
This shot shows the summit of one of the major freight routes, showing the challenges of the terrain in some areas. The line tunnels through the ride that seperates two valleys, however the valley on the right is at higher elevation, forcing a climb. The majority of the loaded freight trains travel in the uphill direction, which used to cause delays as they climbed, which is why there are two tracks on uphill direction on the old route. Recently however a freight only line has been built which, as it avoids the towns, is able to climb over a longer distances and at a shallower gradaient.
The Town of Sedingbury is where most of the aforementioned loaded trains making the climb originate from, with metal, timber, and chemicals all being transported from the town.
Tranville is an interchange between two passenger routes, as well as being on a freight artery. The junctions here have proven difficult to design due the presence of the station, and the river valley requiring long bridges to cross.
There are a few small stations on minors routes such as this one on the single track line through Frenfingway.
Further down the line is Linnington, a busy area with an aluminium plant, stockyard, and bulk terminal being served. The passenger station is an interchange between services on the mainline and one of the cross country routes.
Hunfingley passenger station and port lie at the end of two mainlines for both passengers and freight. Port facilities have been expanded in recent years to increase the amount of traffic, however town itself remains small due the the space limitations imposed by its location.
Grenfingway is a major intersection of numerous freightlines, with livestock, grain, coal, iron, bauxite, metal, and chemicals passing through.
The town of Nunninghall has another aluminium smelter that is served by the company. This particular smelters location at the centre of the large peninsular means it can be well supplied with bauxite which can only be transported from bulk terminals on the coast.
