Haven't had much time to work on this game. But got some work done recently.
A new mainline has been opened and timetabled including a branch line. It's very nice to see the trains merge, and provide (cross platform) interchanges between trains.
Also major work has been done to complete construction another mainline straight through center of the map.
This line ends at a untill now unserved big city. Because this is the only big town in the west and the geography of the map makes all future planned lines more or less end here it required a big terminus station.
There will be at least 4 mainlines terminating directly at the station and a yet unknown number of branches, so heavy traffic and a timetabling nightmare is awaiting. The designs of the station should allow trains form the various lines to arrive and leave simultaneous, the most difficult puzzle always is to plan them conflict free to and from the sidings at the begin and end of the day.
To create parking sports for this large fleet a new engineering works has been constructed near the new station. It gives room to park 20 full length trains (10 tiles) overnight, which probably will be insufficient. Space has been reserved nearby to create extra sidings for shorter trains of needed.
Now the horrible task to get everything in excel and create a timetable can start.
A quick question - is there a simple way to calculate the number of tiles between stations or are you manually counting them?
Really interested in this
