The dome has a problem as covers up all the nice work I done to the buildings.

I also noticed that prior to reading your post. What about one more option available: a transparent dome.[/quote]

That might be a good idea .. if I can get some photos of how it as back in the 1950s and 60s could put some furniture in the concourse area too.

Not sure if I could make it cargo aware so looks animated with people moving around?

First I get it all finished the way I doing it now, and than see what improvements I can add and change.

Cheers

Hi,

Come up with a novelty idea for those like me like some realism in game.

If the station you wish to make has short platforms, but some of your trains are way too long, how to make the train stop for same period of time if it fitted in the platform?

So I made some point bars and signal wiring. These act the same as single sided platforms.

Going along side the signals and points be a problem .. hope overlaps will work with out glitching to much.

Where the bars cross under the tracks hope eventually to make them so can go different directions.

Just an idea at moment .. but this will allow long trains to stop at short platforms.

Went for a train ride today to a place called Singleton. Got some video shots of Lochinvar, Greta, and Branxton from the window of the train too.

The last time I seen those stations and actually step foot n the platfrms was in the 1970s when I was a baggage porter on the North West Mail from Broadmeadow to Narrabri. Greta, Branxton and Singleton still have the original buildings, just the platforms been done up.

Lochinvar has had a complete face lift and for a little platform only big enough for one carriage to fit on it got one hell of a footbridge.

These images taken from train window is looking at Platform 1, which is on the northern side. To get off the station fro platform 1 you go up those 4 ramps to get to the top, across over the 2 tracks, down another 4 ramps to platform 2. The town happens to be on the northern side of the station 3 km away. The sign says it all "Way out".

I seen stations with ramps, but the ramps on other stations are just 2 ramp sections to reach the top. This one has 4.

Wonder how many people just go across the tracks.

Maybe make this footbridge eventually.
