Ok! Thanks guys !

” There is no doubt that early game you can run one factory out to all 7 cities on a small map.  Central location is preferred for this.   No trains needed, you can run horse’s and make it work.    Just have a good road network. “

Check, but the game is called “Train Fever” not “Horse & Wagon Fever” ..  😉

Yes, i run horse and wagons and it works fine indeed. Just seems a bit silly to me to have all these poor horses running about day and night while you can have a train do the job all at once. Laying roads is easier than laying track though, certainly over long distance.

“It is counter productive to have 2 oil wells feed one refinery.   However, there are no issues running 3 oil wells to 3 refineries.   Not sure where you heard it was a bad idea to run more then one of the same type of factory.  But let me assure you, it is false. “

Tossi explained, indeed i must’ve misunderstood what was said. All clear now. The thing is that i do have 3 refineries delivering goods to 3 cities. Seemed to work well (pun intended) but since i upgraded one with a 4 track freight station and seperate delivery of oil to the refinery and goods to the cities ( combined before) the refinery now produces not even half of what it did before the upgrade. ( i know it will take a while but still… )

“My current game I got real real lucky, I have an oil refinery up north, middle and south.   I ran the one in the middle until it reached 380 production.   Running to all 7 cities, then opened a new one for 2 north cities.   When the 1st one reached 350 goods used, I opened the one in the south.”

Wow!! I was already happy with 180 of the oil ref i upgraded. Now it’s only doing 61…. The other 2 do 80 and 59..  I know, i have to ship to more cities…

“All 3 factories are running great, my cities are having insane growth at the moment.  🙂 “

That’s another thing i haven’t really got the grip on yet… Next to getting transport organised for a city to grow, adding roads should help too, right ? I do see small buildings appear at some of the roads i’ve added but only just and that seems about it…. Nothing much more seems to happen…

I do have something good going on with my current map but it’s this upgraded oil refinery that’s costing me millions at the moment… I should’ve left it alone i guess…  😉

Thanks for your explanation !
