Ah,. that explains - Duh, I must be stupid - mind you I just started playing OpenTTD. Thanks Puggy.Never heard of tunnels then DeadFish? At least, that's my guess.
The station looks nice and effective. The two airplanes in the sky are more smoking guns. Just one thing I can't see where it stands for. The way-point "Dutlet Brundhattan" is at the and of a track, or?BlasterTransport wrote:ok thanks for the info! I hadn't noticed that plane before in av8.

I think they look nice. The tunnels are a good way of saving space. You're using German instead of British signals though, and the functionality of Ninninghattan Docks can't match its looks. See, if two trains from opposite ends both choose the same platform, one of them will arrive at the station first, and the late train will be stopped at a red two-way exit signal, thus causing a deadlock.ZiggyStardust wrote:My first post of game images: lets see what you think!
Since Ninninghattan Docks is a three-platform station, you could take a look at http://tt-forums.net/download.php?id=59716 and see how trains from both ends can choose the middle platform without any possibility of a deadlock, and little interference between arriving and departing trains. I think it's the best (but not necessarily good) layout for such a station, until there's a better way for trains to reserve platforms.
EDIT: I've got some screenshots myself now. We'll start off with the map which, unfortunately, can't fit into a 800x600 screenshot.

- As you can see, the towns have grown quite a bit since 1929, as has my transport empire. New additions include a fully electrified line to the east, a mountain line to the west, and lots more vehicles.

- Donston is an excellent site for a heavy traffic through station due to flat terrain to its south, so we started off big. This is just a rare 'gathering' of EE1s. Normally, you would only see one or two trains at the station.

All of the screenshots will be from 1937 now. Construction on the mountain line started in 1934/35, but I only had something to show 3 years later.
Also, remember that the pictures are in wrong order.

- This is the intermediate station of our mountain line: Little Hendingstone Valley. Sadly, the station's capacity is reduced by its small number of platforms, and its long tunnels.

- To the north is the old, old Sindhead Cross line, while new track from Mabridge to Little Hendingstone can be seen in the south. Among the old 4-4-0s, we can see a 2-6-4 Tank engine, a new 4-6-0 Standard Five and short mail train hauled by a 4-6-2.

- Two Streamliners fly past each other as an older 4-6-2 enters the tunnel at a relatively slow speed. Now that we're mixing the fastest with the...not-as-fast, we've had to construct a passing lane to allow the Streamliners to overtake.

- A second generation of Pacifics was made available in 1937: the 4-6-2 Streamliner. It even comes with its own unique beaver-tail observation wagon at the rear. :) This 4-6-2 is seen departing from the new addition platforms of Little Hendingstone.

Servicing mainly for main line P01, there are two station that also servicing for other line (P02 & P04) making it the busies area. I have split these three stations to passenger and cargo using stepping station.
According to my plan, line P01's passenger service can have up to 12 local service, 4 semi-rapid service and 3 rapid service. For now it have 10 local service and 4 semi-rapid service. Because these three station location is so near, there are possibility Guston Woods station will be take out from P01's service list and act as a brach line.
Clue where P01 is, click to my previous post

This screenshot of Lartfingburg in the early 40s shows the new UK Roadset with the UKRS, HOVS, Av8, UK waypoints, and other generic western architecture that could be British or not.
It also shows a pathetic amount in the bank, especially given that inflation is off..less than £8 million. But I spend tens of millions every year bribing the local authority.
EDIT: Added two more screenshots.
