I've come to notice that it's a very small detail to make the whole station look a lot prettier and more incorporated. I haven't been playing much lately, running out of areas to expand into. I'll try to throw you some more before Mister 2010 arrives!

Thanks for the positive comments, audigex, Badger and Raichase :)

Bottom of page 1? Oh my! Plans to post new pictures before 2010? Oh my! At least I got here in time to salvage this sinking ship.

I am doing so with two very simple, yet very large, picture. One of Hallstahammar and surroundings, where the high speed line recently opened! It runs both to Höllviken International Airport, situated directly east of Höllviken City, and to Ljungby International Airport.

I've also added a routemap. Please request any interesting area - I've recently been working on re-designing the roads of cities and I've built roads between towns as well. Many towns have grown so that the station is situated in the middle, with the town growing percectly well around it. You could perhaps spot some in this routemap, the year is 1961.

Keep 'em coming! What stations/bridges have you been using? Also where do you think buses or trams would be better?

Sorry about the questions, but I'm trying to learn to build better networks.

Stations.. Well, Canadian stations set or newStations, mainly.

Bridges, Total Bridge Renewal Set (I think it's called that...)

Buses and trams are more useful in city cores when not wanting to tear down houses, or in smaller towns where building trains is not suitable

Thanks for your help, but I meant when would you use buses and when would you use trams?

Thanks,

Whenever you feel like. It's more of an eye-candy feature.. Then again, trams can hold more passengers but usually travels a bit slower - I never use them from city to city.

As I posted my problem somewhere else on the forums, and it seems you made, what didn't work in my game: how did you get the second parameter (era) of TTRS running? Or did you leave it by default?

My problem is really annoying... but it devours me from the inside! Nevertheless thank you in advance.

I play through the years and they reach that era by itself :P

Also, if you force the area with parameters, you'll have to wait for those houses to start being built. Tear down a few other houses and wait :wink:

Finally, some new screenshots from Hawthorn & Co. Since we last visited you in 1961, not an extreme amount of things have happened. The year is 1981 and in the last 20 years, the emphasis has been on providing service by road or sea. To give you that in plain numbers, there are 321 road vehicles operating in 1981 whilst in 1961, that amount was 88.

There have been some rail-bound extensions, however. This routemap reveals those. Two new lines have been constructed, to connect the westernmost city of Göteborg (Gothenburg) with the mainline. One of them runs from Billdal to Göteborg, and one runs from Ljunginge via Västerhaninge to Göteborg.

Hawthorn & Co - Routemap West:
ha30.png
To give you an idea of how necessary those expansions were, the following two screenshots are of cities on the way from Ljunginge (slightly to the right in Routemap West) to Göteborg.

First up is Västerhaninge, where the new line leaves the mainline. The platforms in central Västerhaninge are newly built for this new line, whilst the smaller ones to the left hosts local trains:

Västerhaninge 1981:
ha31.png
The second picture reveals Säffle, a town which started off quite small but has grown extremely much. It sees trains from pretty much everywhere arrive and depart, both locals and mainline trains. There are only 2 trains in this picture, but the station is often host to six trains at once:

To continue the emphasis on Göteborg, here is a picture of the terminus station in the town itself. It plays host to nothing but electric trains, both the speedy Budd Metroliners and the EMD AEM-7 (both operating at the grand speed of 201kph). This particular screenshot, on a graphics-related note, is a perfect example of how pretty the Swedish Houses set can look in conjunction with other sets:

This screenshot does not show anything special, really. I just found it pretty. It shows the two towns of Uppsala and Höganäs on the line from Göteborg to Billdal. A bus feeder service is provided by the two Siccar buses.

To round things off, a screenshot of a smaller extension. Towns all along the mainline north of Billdal had way more passengers than our trains could handle. Two new platforms were built at Vallenlanda and you can actually see a DMU entering those platforms. In the tunnel, a TurboTrain passes by on its way north.

Please feel free to request screenshots. Most cities that I have shown before have grown a lot since they were last shown, and in many cases slightly rebuilt or expanded. I've heard many of you like screenshots of "Before and After" of cities, where an old and a new screenshot of the same area is put next to each other :wink:

Excellent shots matey. I've been meaning to play a map like that, but I've never got far.

Nice work. I especially like the design of the Vallenlanda station. A great combination of bypass lines and waypoints plus some very creative use of terminus and pass through platforms. Well done.

@ Nite Owl: It started with the through platforms and the bypass right next to it, but that's what happens with expansion. Stations often end up looking good if the cities they serve grow around them :)

EDIT: In 1946, this is what it looked like around Vallenlanda. It's similar, yet the picture from 1981 looks way better

Awesome Network designs, I love your Screenshots.

May I ask what settings you use to create a "nice" map? I am fiddling around with them but don't end up with suitable results.
