PACK: 128
year: 1912

this is a real game. Started in the 20th century, from
the year 1910. This is a humble railway bridge
linking the state capital to several towns. This
rail extension is also composed of two intersections and
has two overpasses in your mesh.
The railroads Brazil S / A is a state company and
owns 100% of its shares in the ministry of transport.
Brought much innovation to the state, since the
travel in this period could be made only in
steamboats or in carriages.

Here's mine! I thought of a cool rail bridge, but it had mysteriously been demolished. Planes are so much more profitable in Pak64...  :-*

Maybe it could be that we only see it as empty but infact there is a picture with 1x1 pixels… that's however what I see in the title…

I want to throw my hat into the ring. A game started with a Nightly after 102.2 using the standard pak64. It is taken from a real game at the intersection of two principal railroad tracks (also traffic is [still] low).

[Edit]I decided to take a new Screenshot without the menus in the image. I also waited for some trains and planted a few trees. Link to original image: http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/6122/simscr13.png (http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/6122/simscr13.png)

"Deep Valley" - pak128 + some addons
Crossing high mountains by train. Scenery includes a road
to timber plantation along a river, few old buildings and forest.
Not a real game.

I'd like to submit a vertical image, but is that actually allowed? In case it is not, I'll give a fallback here, too... (to indicate good will, I cut the images to 599 px ;D)

Point spaghetti
This is a potential future chokepoint, where two passenger lines converge and one crosses the cargo network. Lack of grown trees hints at extensive terraforming in the past, too...

Pak128 latest nightly, no addons, real game

"The Grandmaplex" ;)
Real game
Not a "real" thing (no routes serve it, made for decor only)
Sorry about how fuzzy it is, the image size constraint is why

Hi, wanted to take part too, with the following screenshot

"Main line bringing bridges to the edge"
(http://www.eckental-brand.de/smsc_dom.png)

It's from a real pak64 game, and the trains you see are also totally normal. 15 trains on this screenshot show high traffic in total and on every track (Yes, the 8 tracks mainline is also at times suffering overload)

Post by: electroduck on April 13, 2011, 11:08:44 PM
:o Wow dom700 can you post a save maybe? I would love to see all those trains in action, and see how your network prevents jams with so many trains!

You are most welcome. :)

LOL, seems Mr. Vilvoh fake-banned my fake-screenshots of my fake-bridges. But, if someone still wants to give a glance at my fake-bridges, there's an fake actual link here (http://graphics.simutrans.com/thumbnails.php?album=120).

Hi,
I added my contribution too:
This picture shows a series of rail and highway bridges over the bay, that allow the main rail backbone and to cross the water.
The scene is from my savegame: http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=6135.0 (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=6135.0)
