Title: Colorful oil
Description: Long crude oil convoi starting its long way to the far east refinery, which feeds a couple of gas stations.



Pak used: OpenPak128 + own colorful tankers set.
Real game: I would say it's from a real game, but I can't promise. I'm pretty sure the railway head to the east to a refinery placed about 100 or 150 tiles away (I remember was really far). On its return way it also carried gas to feed a couple of gas stations that were by the half of its way back.
The picture is old and was rescued from my HD (although I remember the scenario, don't ask me why :P), but I use to play with trains of this size for coal and oil (6 tiles long is rather usual, 8 few times, 10 rare). This one was 8 tiles long.

A freight 14-tile train passing a suburban platform.



Unfortunately, 2 cars out of bounds because of 800*600 image size requirements.
This is a real game screenshot, which demonstrates not only a long train but a piece of map, which shows other long trains on line. This line connects two capitals. And such long trains carry goods from one city to another.
This real game (1024*1024 map) have been developed since 1930 and before 2017. It contains many kilometers of railways, constructed for serving a long-train traffic.
Based on Pak128.

Train-catcher, imho would be better if you take the screenshot without the minimap, it's much more artistic

and i have notived some problems on a certain line, so here it´s my screenshot.

A bottleneck on tracks of tobu railway.




It was an signal problem, and nearly arround 40 trains have been delayed on the line, jeje.
Also i not mention to stranded passengers on the stations.  :o
