Built a Center City Tunnel Station in 1928. Set it up with 5 lines running east and 5 lines running west. City population was around 780 in 1930 and reached 1500 population in 1950. All train routes were A > B on double line track lines with ‘Y’ junctions leading into their own designated platform. Was Playing on a medium map, easy, with no mods. Started with 4 train routes in the new station, then added new routes as time progressed to reach 10 routes total into this city. Used roads to dig in for the stations. Then laid and deleted track to level the station pit. Did notice that new city buildings were not constructed over the shallow parts of the tunnels. Guess there is a minimum depth to allow new construction over tunnels? Anyways, the city kind of has a nice look without all the typical tracks slicing through.October 4, 2014 at 07:50 #10837
Ugh! What do you need to select to make the pics look normal?October 4, 2014 at 08:47 #10842NekroParticipantOctober 4, 2014 at 09:58 #10844October 4, 2014 at 10:03 #10847October 4, 2014 at 10:08 #10848
10 Routes, each route using only it’s own platform to avoid tie-ups http://i.imgur.com/Qt0YqbU.jpgOctober 4, 2014 at 10:15 #10849October 4, 2014 at 16:25 #10872KlinnParticipant
Very cool! Thanks for posting the screenshots, it’s great to see how this idea worked out.
Comparing your last 1928 screenshot with the second 1950’s one, it looks like over the years the game has shifted the center of town (highest buildings) from your original stations to the new location.October 4, 2014 at 17:52 #10877matsv201Participant
I have expermineted with this way of building station for a while to… i don’t have that huge of a city, but almost.
I found that having lines that goes right past the station increase capacity quite a lot. There have always been space between the station and the tunle for me to build traffic light.
Also i usualy build the roads quite a bit closer, the houses usually fill up the soil under and can be built almost ontop of the station, it look like a lot waste space to me….
But other, real nice.October 6, 2014 at 05:09 #11002
Klinn, Yes the game shifted the town center to the new station area. I looked back at a 1928 save and the Land Value is the same then as it is now in 1950 (550 & 650/msq) Old city center didn’t lose value, the New city center land values just went astronomical.October 6, 2014 at 05:27 #11003
Matsv201, Yes your right, I should have built those station side roads closer. It ended up with lots of wasted space on both ends of the tunnel station. In this pic you can see how the underground lines inhibited new building growth. Does anyone know if there is a minimum depth required for the foundations of new growth buildings? If I would of dug in the station a couple of meters deeper, would those vacant lots have skyscrapers now? http://i.imgur.com/hR2ExtB.jpgOctober 6, 2014 at 11:31 #11023YeolParticipant
Very inspirational! Great stuff! Thank you for sharing this with us. 😉October 6, 2014 at 11:42 #11026Smeagol01Participant
how do u make these tunnels i never seem to get 2 tunnels as close as you…..October 6, 2014 at 13:01 #11035matsv201Participant
Smeagol01, i had problems with that to, but you have to pull the second line next to the first all the way from the entrance to the exit, then it works… well, most of the times. Sometimes it dont work any way (if there are buildings to close to the entrance for example)October 7, 2014 at 02:05 #11070Smeagol01Participant
hmm or if the tunnel seems too long i get the dot but no rails displayed oO
