I am a great fan of your game, a great fan of all games of such genre, and, while playing all of them, I saw one, but huge mistake: there was no catenary system. Even in such game as Cities in Motion/Cities in Motion 2 I haven’t found it. That’s a pity.
So, I’d like to know, if catenary exists in your game 🙂 (in fact, talking about trams)

you mean something like this?:May 29, 2013 at 17:26 #1170
Yes, but for trams.June 2, 2013 at 21:27 #1172AnonymousInactive
The cantenary is inclued in all tracks or exists a special track with cantenary?June 3, 2013 at 09:52 #1173urbanMember
From about 1905 onward, you can build railroad tracks both with and without catenary. It is also possible to provide existing tracks with a catenary.
As the first electric tram went into regular service in 1881, they will be available in the game earlier than trains.June 3, 2013 at 16:21 #1174
Oh, thanks! It’s really good news!June 3, 2013 at 18:23 #1175DamageParticipant
Excellent news 🙂
I am wondering though, will there also be buses with a catenary? They’re used in my country in a few cities (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolleybus) and in quite a few other countries too. I think they’re invented quite a while ago, like the around the year 1900 or so.June 3, 2013 at 20:06 #1176AnonymousInactive

Well, first trolleybus was created in 1881. But if we talk about more or less modern trolleybuses with rod pantograph – they appeared in 1909. 🙂
I know what now trolleybuses not very popular in Europe and USA, but it would be very nice if we could see trolleybuses in TF. I am ready to provide any assistance if required. 😀June 4, 2013 at 17:22 #1180

Hmm…I don’t really think like this. There are many trolleybus systems in Eastern Europe, and if we count ex-USSR countries, there are many-many trolleybuses in Europe.June 4, 2013 at 18:18 #1183AnonymousInactive
Well you know, I’m live in ex-USSR city with 2’nd trolleybus network in world, so… ;D
I just want to say that trolleybuses was very popular in Western Europe and USA in the middle of the XX century. Well, just look in this table: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_trolleybus_systemsJune 7, 2013 at 19:19 #1185basilUrban Games Team
The current plan is to not include trolley buses in the initial release. However, it’s still possible that they find the way into the release or into a DLC.October 24, 2013 at 13:27 #1445atpatParticipant
Old thread, I know, but I thought I’d add that Leeds in the UK is hoping to implement trolleybuses (since the government refused to give them money for a new tram system, all UK cities, including Leeds, with one exception, Blackpool, having ripped out all their tram and trolleybus systems by the 1960s).
