Complex Junctions

Post by dasy2k1 »

What are some of the more complex junctions you have made?

starting the bidding with a 4 way grand union where to the south (bottom left) there is a busy goods line, to the north is a branch off the main line that serves both branch PAX and goods, east leads to one of the main suburban pax stations,
and west leads off towards another busy interuban station with a busy goods yard attached.

due to space constraints its not perfect by any means and does block up from time to time

I think this might be one. The long recyclables trains waited too long and also jammed other trains, so it ended up looking like this.

I'm fond of this portion of the network. A mainline runs left-to-right through it, which sees express passenger, local passenger, and lumber trains hauling through it. Numerous branch & spur lines service farms, the city at bottom-left, and run northwards to a steel mill.

I gotta ask, where is that big airship from? and is that a dirt International Airport?

Anyway, here's some nice interchanges from NetTrans:

Ah, that would be the Hindenburg-class; I made a grf out of these sprites but I have no idea what sort of license they are covered by, so I am loath to post the grf publicly.

The dirt International is a personal addition I've made to OGFX+ Airports. It doesn't quite look as good as the other dirt-runway airports, so I haven't added it to the nightly branches.

Complexity of the 5 junctions here stemming more from aspect of size:

Cool system of interchanges. I think that in such a system should be much more trains. Or show more screenshots with a large number of trains. Thanks in advance :D .

Thank you, and yeah, although with my world pop having grown by ¾ million just the past 8 years, the system is built for eventual swarming by trains. As it's been, when platforms to a few stations show little sign of being freed by passengers, I meld a string of new services into my highly-regulated network..at a rate of about 1 dozen/year.

I forgot about this 5-prong junction many tiles away:

This cluster of laced junctions is the clumpiness that stumped me..lots of fiddling..mystifyng threading..no ability at conceptualizing, which felt really queer..&, afterwards, surprised at noticing its altogether being trilevel..oooo + I now see it's 6-prong:

This monster was in my last save game. I'm not sure if the screenshot even shows its final evolution, because S2013PP seems to have committed seppuku over this 40+ MB save game.

3%20Frutigen%20Junction.png
Just south of Frutigen, one of the network's most complicated junctions is located. Six railway lines meet here:
1) to the north: the line we came from (Stans & Lenzburg)
2) to the east: mixed-traffic main line to Pratteln-Frick-Presinge HB via Altwis
3) to the east: high speed railway to Pratteln-Frick-Presinge HB, bypassing Altwis
4) to the south: South West Coast Main Line via Luterbach, Bronschhofen and Zeihen to Leibstadt (with an extension to Vuillerens)
5) to the south: the Luterbach-Bronschhofen freight bypass going through below the main station of Luterbach with non-visible additional steep gradients to avoid colliding with the pedestrian entrance level of the station
6) to the west: to Schönengrund (-Selma / -Genesterio) and to the grain mill, stockyard and bauxite harbor between Frutigen and Chermignon

Here's a flat Junction. It's a mess of tracks. I have around 10-15 trains that pass through it. I have no regrets.

A messy junction indeed! But really cool.
Forgive my curiosity, but I wonder which train set you're using, as well as which tram tracks? I don't think I ever saw them before... Are some locos push-pulling?

The train set is UKRS 3.04, it is NOT UKRS 2

As for the freight trams, they are in the HESQ set.

Thank you for the quick answer!

I didn't remember this push pull feature in UKRS 3.04, I guess that's because it only works in TTDPatch, right?

It works in OTTD, you need a shunter engine, five or less cars, and a brake van.


I think the engines that works with push pull are the 0-4-0, the 0-6-0, and the Class 08

Definite bonus points for building this in mountainous terrain and using long trains; nice :)
