Historical Great Britain
« on: August 21, 2017, 01:29:54 PM »
At the minute I am working on a project, using the latest version of Simutrans Extended and pak.128 Britain, to recreate as accurately as possible the British rail network as it was in 1975. Now, if anybody has any information - track plans, timetables etc - that could be utilized then that would be most appreciated. Screenshots will be coming soon, I promise.

Here's a screenshot of Waterloo station and the surrounding area. Note that some of the platforms are underground for space reasons.

The heightmap is Carl's one he used for his GB map, and I'll upload a save when I've done all the lines out of London Waterloo.

This is a map of the routes I've built so far:

The line from Waterloo to Weymouth is complete.
The lines from Basingstoke to Salisbury and Reading are complete.
The line from Woking to Portsmouth Harbour is complete.
The lines from Waterloo to Guildford via Epsom and Cobham are complete.
The Dorking, Chessington South and Hampton Court lines are complete.

Yes and it is very questionable becos there are certain lines and stations which are either misplaced or the line speed is higher than in real life but apart from that it looks promising. Read my PM. :)

As far as I'm aware there isn't an option to set line speed limits in pak.128Britain and could you elaborate on what you mean by 'certain lines and stations which are either misplaced'. Also I haven't got a PM.

I mean that like some stations in the game are not place as they are irl and also there are different tracks to represent different speed limits.

I mainly used Carl's GB map as a reference point for lines and stations and by, 'there are different tracks to represent different speed limits' do you mean that the slow lines should have a lower speed limit than the fast lines? If you mean by the speed limit on the track, I used the highest track level so I don't have to faff around with it later when stuff like the 442's and whatnot get introduced. Are you also going to ask why certain tracks/stations are not there/aren't electrified/don't exist?

Great idea for a project!

You might find this useful - mostly older lines, but some there might help
