Those tracks and stops are very nice!
Maybe its possible to add tram tracks into base graphics? :roll:
Very good job!

Great work! My only criticism is that the poles seem too thin. Even lamp posts in TTD are two pixels wide, and they aren't as tall or as thick in RL.

I'd suggest making them two pixels wide. But I really love the details in those off-road tracks.

IMO the poles are okay. It looks really great. I hope trams will be implemented in OTTD soon. Maybe I can add some trams for my Narrow-Gauge Set as an extra for city-transport and inter-urban railway systems.

By the way, is the red sign at the stops in company-colors?

this is looking very good!
I really hope OTTD includes these tracks with their set, they do look fabolous.
theres only some little things I would like to suggest:
could maybe a switch be done to:
- turn off the fences when building tramtracks off-road?

compatibility with OTTD should be good, only the drive-through stops might be a little tricky, since OTTD already has graphics for them.

Can't the stops be in company colors?

Unfortunately, that's not supported by the patch.

I also can't hide the fences without removing the rail fences. Try some of the "no-fence" grfs if you are still interested.

Valance has to complete his tram patch before that can happen.

I am still interested in it, but it lacks of information.

And you show people the red card, when they want to buy steam engines in modern years... :twisted:

Unfortunately not, but there´s a club "Freunde der Bremer Strassenbahn e.V."

See here

http://www.bsag.de/fdbs/fdbs/fdbsinfo_alt.htm

(very nice page, lots of photos, a must see)

They have a mail address:

info@fdbs.net

I bet they know everything about it. 8)

OMG :o ... those look /beautiful/.

If you want to do some more, maybe you could take a look at the trams from Jena (I've attached an image ;) ). It woul be really cool to see them in game :D

Very good, a standard that the UK tram set will have to live up to! Very impressive.

Roland,

Something of interest for your data collection, probably:

The GT 8N-1 type for Bremen did cost 1,96 Mio EUR per unit (according to FDBS) in 2005. The former "Wegmann & Co" (Kassel) "Tw 5xx" / "Bw 7xx" cost around 800,000 EUR in 1973. (re-calculate inflation!).

omg, how do I recalculate inflation?
But thank you for that side information. Purchase prices are very rare to find.

It's on the todo-list yet, so it won't be a problem.

Remember the requests to have a lovely steamer in late years in your DBSet.
Reaction: not powerful enough, too expensive, not useful, sod off! ;)
