That I will.

Most of the work I did for the Station sets was started before Quast65 taught me to do the Overlaps and multitile stations .. I not going back through what I done and see what single tile lots I done that can be joined as 1x2 and longer to save on IDs and allow room to add more.

What I working on at moment is the girder cranes. Using the Overlaps.
Hoping the part that I have on fake roads can then be used so players can have fake roads if like or have a actual road and use it as a transfer station between road vehicles and trains. One side of the crane will be on a none-track tile and rest on the overlap.

Still working on it and should know in a few hours if idea works.

We shall see

I've released AuzFreightStationsV005 on Bananas.

Was hoping have station sets ready, but a few touch ups needed.

The 2 stations will be in AuzStations part2 and Part4 which hope to be ready tomorrow as still a bit to do.

The Top station although it is a Island Station, it does not have a platform on far side. Still another platform and buildings to make to go opposite to this one.

The other buildings are in AuzFreightStationsV005 .. these are buildings provided to me by ISR.

Cheers all .. as it past my bedtime .. I need some beauty sleep,

This version is updated to the one I just put in other forum. It has a few extra cranes with different Containers and also with no Containers.

Maybe some of these Containers will have Tourists in them :lol:

Made a few additions and fixed a few graphic issues.

Just in case the containers have overload of tourist . I strengthened the far end supports and put in a centre support to help hold the weight.
Added a few more cranes so can have variety.

Doing some upgrade to brick platforms and adding a few more buildings.

The brick work was too clean so I ran a few steam and diesels past it to dirty them up some.
Attachment:
Train Depots.png
Train Depots.png [ 365.51 KiB | Viewed 798 times ]

These 2 Train Depots are designed to work with the Train Depots I added to Australian Railway Tracks which can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=180&t=877

The sheds on left are For Steam and Diesel and the ones on right for Electric Trains, but they will work for either when they not joined to the Depot from AuzTracks.

The Doors on the half sheds are path Aware.

I hoping to have all the Station sets ready by the weekend for release on Bananas.

Finished the sets of Train Depots.

They can be used as stand along stations and platforms or used with the Depot in AuzTracks.

In these 4 files (Zipped up together) are changes I made to all brick platforms .. I changed the shading of the bricks facing the tracks so look sooty and oily from all the passing trains.

Platform Types
Attachment:
PlatformTypes.png
PlatformTypes.png [ 122.67 KiB | Viewed 753 times ]

1. Normal. 2. Single Sided. 3. Island.
Do you use the Normal Platforms in your games?

Specially those that I have included in my sets :?:

To free up some IDs I thinking of removing the Normal Platforms as I don't use them anyway.

Also remove Island Platforms where Single Platforms can be used to make Islands.

To make a platform that can be used for all 3 station types takes up 4 ID's .. If I make these changes I will only need 2 ID's.

This will reduce a lot of platforms in the sets I done and free up IDs for other ideas I have without needing to make more sets for these new ideas.

Strategy ... Drop the multi track platforms.
A player can customize his stations by assembling single platforms, so all you need are:
- Double platform
- Single platform left
- Single platform right
- No platform (this is optional)

One of the reasons I like to clear some IDs is for some Multitrack platforms as like to do some of the larger country stations in my country and it only takes 1 ID.

Have some thinking to do.

Cheers

So here's a thought ...
Drag-n-drop can build up to a 7x7 multi platform group.

If necessary I still got some room in parts 3 and 4 of the Station set and in the Waypoints set.

Just wondered if players use the Normal (Double) type platforms still and if not could remove them.

See voting on other forum 1 person so far voted not to remove them. See what happens in 7 days.

Cheers pal

Here the latest sets of AuzStations.

Changes Made:

* Improved the graphics for the bricks platform edges facing the railway tracks .. they now dirty from the soot and diesel fumes.

* Removed the ballast from in front of Station platforms as no longer needed because of the AuzTracks I making which will have the wide ballast.

* The wide ballast for the Goods and Freight platforms will remain as different type and the ballast is built up to the tops of the rails so vehicles can cross easy and railway staff not be tripping over stones, sleepers and railway tracks.

* AuzWaypoints is now called AuzWaypointsAndMoreFreightStationsV3 as it has both Waypoints and Freight Buildings.

* In AuzWaypointsAndMoreFreightStationsV3 there are some Train Sheds .. these designed to be used on their own or with the Depots in the AuzTracks I making.

* The overhead Car Parks I made many moons ago .. I had wrong platformedges .. I changed them to brick so they match up with the City Bitumen Platforms.

* Probably made some other changes but not remember what they are.

Here's the 4 station sets if like to try them. If no problems found by end of week I hope to release on Bananas.

Adding Luggage, Mail and parcel barrows to the platforms.

Some platforms only have 1 and some have more.

Some platforms have lights and some don't.

Also be designing some platforms on stilts. A bit like these at Dora Creek.

and at Fassifern

The idea of these being made besides cheaper to make, also for passengers safety .. if the fell off the platform and a train is coming they can roll under the platform with the spiders and snakes rather then get ran over by the train.

Been making Suburban Stations with posts to hold up the platforms like shown in the photos above.

SuburbanStations2.png
SuburbanStations2.png [ 90.65 KiB | Viewed 506 times ]

The far platforms are the Suburban Platforms. I been making both with and without the stanchions for the catenary. Still have some to make.

So that I can make the suburban catenary platforms, I need to make room in Part 4, so I moved the Car Parks to Part 3.

Eventually like to see if I can make the car parks animalated.

Here the files of Part 3 and 4 if like to play. Got no idea when these be put in Bananas as still some work to do.

I release the 4 station sets, also AuzFreightStations_v007 and AuzWaypointsAndMoreFreightStationsV3 on Bananas.

Will be some time before I do any more to them.

When I do start working on them again like to try make fake suburban stations with buildings and parks over the top.

Similar to this test I did:
