You may have seen in another post that I referred to a similar¬†setup where I had closed an unprofitable line and replaced it with ‘light rail’, with trams running on buslane enabled country roads. It works pretty well like that but to be able to have the transition from road tram tracks to proper rail lines just like in CIM2 would be cool. However, I doubt this is possible as the games core has roads and rail as separate items that can’t be merged, what could be done relatively easily though would be to introduce another road texture that looks like a normal rail line with sleepers and ballast. The only drawback here would be that you would not be able to simply use the existing track from a closed branch line, you’d have to pull it up and re- lay it. Mind you, that is how a lot of modern light rail networks were constructed anyway so not so bad.
