At Dadtown passengers can change for an Italian EMU, purchased in the mid-1930s to try out the possibilities of electric traction.

It isn't all passenger traffic; there has been some industrial development too. At the steel mill an empty iron ore train and full steel coils train race each other, while NIMBY councillors in Kennford fulminate about the train noise.

On the other side of Kennford, planning permission was annoyingly denied to increase the size of the ore transshipment station, leading to traffic jams. On the feeder line, a French built tank engine potters merrily along.

A couple of shots from the early 1960s. Really enjoying using Pax dist in this scenario, the complexity just keeps growing (and you really do make jams that have to be sorted out later).

Steam, diesel and electric come together in this picture, as a GG1 passes with a mainline service, while a V 200 diesel operates a feeder service, and a steam locomotive, recently imported from South Africa, crosses on a coal drag.

That station layout is odd, the way you have the signals set up means that a train in 2 of the platforms occupy the junction which will cause jams.

Yeah, it has caused me some problems. This seems to be an improvement over making the whole thing one path signalling zone, however, because the station itself doesn't seem to act as a 'break' in the zone the same way a terminus does.

Stations do not have inbuilt signals, contrary to what some people here seem to preach. For a bidirectional through station you need to build path signals on both sides of the station with the lights facing the platforms.

Ah, now this is useful information. Many thanks for that! Pathing is a huge improvement on the TTD/Loco block only set up but can add some complexity of its own.

Some more screenies from 2011/12 in this game...I am now up to about 2025, and still growing my network, linking earlier bits together, and busting bottlenecks.

The main hub at the east end of the island, Great Flaningway-on-sea, has seen a lot of expansion, with General reaching 6 platforms. The recently completed cross island line terminates here.

Along the new line, big stations have been built every 3-4 stations to allow passengers to change from high speed to stopping EMUs. The rural but close towns of Bronningstone and Fort Fronningley have been chosen as a big station site for operational reasons, as well as having plenty of room for expansion...for now at least. As at many LIT stations, local buses connect with trains.

Meanwhile, it isn't all high technology. In a quieter part of the island DMUs trundle sedately through the woods, mostly regulated by ancient mechanical signalling.

Thank you, :D well I did actually get a subsidy so built the station there instead of Wraston, because I could still tap Wraston by tram. Now my 'network effects' are such that I win all sorts of subsidies without trying.

I'll need to take some new shots - things haven't changed all that much in 100 years at Slunningpool, but Dadtown station is now much bigger. I way prefer the gradual town growth of OTTD to Loco's crazy boomtown growth.

About time to put some new screenshots up. Inspired by Lankku, I started a Japanese set game in the Japan scenario, starting from 1920. So far I have managed to build traditional networks on Hokkaido, for both freight and passengers, and a mostly passenger network between Tokyo and Osaka and around that sort of area. The sheer numbers of passengers make things quite challenging. I've built a fair number of linking trams, although I need huge fleets to carry the passengers. I've linked up my Hokkaido network with the Tokyo one via Shinkansen, and have used the Hankyu line sets and track to construct a commuter system around Osaka/Kobe/Koyoto. Its now 1994 and there is still oodles to do.

Jump to 1993 and Japan is at the height of its powers. Shinkansen has been extended to Sapporo. To reach Hakodate, passengers must change at Hakodate Junction for a conventional train into the city centre, as the town was not well located for the Hokkaido bridge alignment.

Yep, my Japan train set parameters were wrong initially, so the track was a bit wrong. I have fixed it now. I am using five types of track in all, quite exciting...

More shots from the 1990s...

Despite the Shinkansen, conventional services remain popular on the Tokyo-Nagoya-Osaka corridor. Nagoya Woods is the terminus for trains from Osaka and Tokyo, while most Tokyo-Osaka trains stop at Chita, with connections for the Nagoya tram system.

Ibraki South is the main station for Osaka, it is actually quite central despite the name. The Shinkansen terminates there along with the conventional line from Tokyo. The Hankyu Railway's distinctive red trains connect at Nara for Koyoto South at the top of the map as well as running underground through Osaka, and running on from the left of the screen to Kobe.

Tokyo West is the hub of the system. Shinkansen and conventional rail routes meet with underground through the city to the other side of the bay, and tram services. Definitely the busiest station on the network.

Wow, that is indeed a very short maglev route. Does it make any profit at all? :shock:

That Maglev may be more Glamorous than a PPM or a 153, but I bet I costs a hell of a lot more! Still, Stourbridge Town branch for Maglev Conversion, along with the Manchester Metrolink too! :lol:

Yup, ¥13m in 1994. Yatomi has a 71% rating as a result. I originally built it very short for the first Japan set maglev, which only takes 10 passengers - fortunately the second one takes 225! Haven't got round to lengthening the route yet.
