Title: Upper electrification
Post by: Václav on February 10, 2009, 12:50:17 PM
Upper electrification for speed 160 kilometers per hour is missing.
I would like to see this electrification in game - because almost all freight trains cannot go faster and using electrification for speed 280 km/h is decreasing profit and using of third-rail (or also fourht-rail) electrification for engines what are constructed for upper electrification is very strange - if almost all vehicles in game use only upper electrification.

Which pakset are you using? The electrification types vary by pakset.

This may be pak128. The caternary comes in 4 versions;
  • 1: Old catenary, 15¢ (2¢), 110km/h
  • 2: Third rail electrification, 150¢ (8¢), 160km/h
  • 3: Standard catenary, 150¢ (12¢), 280km/h
  • 4: Highspeed catenary, 600¢ (20¢), 400km/h

I always found it confusing that one can use trains with pantographs on "third rail" electrification...

The problem will also be solved in Simutrans-Experimental by not allowing 3rd rail vehicles to run on lines with overhead power and vice versa... ;-)
