One of the best things the devs have added in a patch lately is those variable catenary distances.....they're a little closer together on sharp curves and a lot further apart on straights. Looks much better compared to how it used to be!

Electrify everything I say, it's the Swiss after all. They electrified their country much earlier than any of the other western countries. I love the upgrades in the episode today. The lorries actually look like lorries. That's awesome. That electric train engine is so familiar though. It's like I've seen it somewhere before. I love the electric train. It's so fast! St. Stephan doesn't have a local bus service yet. Is that why we have so few people using the train? Also once you set up the St. Stephan - Frutigen connection the line between St. Stephan and Zweisimmen would become a lot busier, I reckon. One question: Why are we going with single track when we have the funds for a double track? Is it a stylistic choice?

Vor 6 Monate
CorRekt
CorRekt

@GrandT OK. But a single track in a busy line like the Zweisimmen - St. Stephan connection is just going to create tailback right? Maybe it's not realistic but it would be better management.

Vor 6 Monate
GrandT
GrandT

The reason we have single track sections is mainly to replicate the railways in Switzerland. A lot of their branch lines are single. But it's good practice for those who wish to delve into hard-mode, to cut down on maintenance. :)

It might have made more sense for the electric locomotive to haul the busier line, with the longer train and the steeper slope. But sense isn't for us. XD

"St." in English is short for "Saint" while in German it is short for "Sankt" (same meaning). Pronunciation of "St. Stephan" thus is /ZAHNCT SHTEFAN/ (well done on the second word so far).

If you should ever make it to Switzerland, I would recommend a visit to the "Verkehrshaus" Lucerne. There you can see many of the locomotives from the "early days". And of course ships, buses, motorcycles and planes. https://www.verkehrshaus.ch/en/home.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTdWqjpOtNY&feature=emb_logo Have a good time Grand :-) ps: had to correct.

Well, you said that Switzerland was one of the first countries to have electrified railways (or something like that), and I would even believe that it was the first one, but since the first electric train was unlocked in 1913 (in the game) and you were surprised, I don't think you you were right, since we had electrified railway since 1909, and we weren't one of the leading countries or regions of technical progress... Here's the link to Wikipedia, if you want to read about it: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatra_Electric_Railway

I believe the first ever electric railway was the Volks Electric Railway in Brighton, however it was more of a proof of concept than an actual commercial railway!

@GrandT Yes switzerland was early but was doing a bad job at the beginning. I think Austria was the leading nation in developing early electric locomotives, as well as the US funny enogh, but WW1 and the Be 5/7 made switzerland the leading nation, due to the war coal became expensive and the State saw that the new electric locomotives the BLS had were much better equiped to keep the service up so after ww 1 switzerland invested like crazy into producing electric locomotives and the electric locomotives driving on the Lötschberg (your map) were allways the frontrunners in tech until the 60s when the sbb created the Re 6/6 which blew everything before out of the water in terms of its strength. It still drives today on the Gotthard.

GrandT : "Look at this little electric train " Me a Swiss : "Well it was the most powerfull locomotive in Europe at the time" but sure its cute :D. Also Grant since you were wondering yes you can recolor all the vehilces of the BLS Pack. Sidenote the DS Lötschberg Ship is driving on the Brienzersee in reality and is one of the famous swiss steamships (they all look quite similar) that is still using its original EngineRoom to drive tourist up and down there. I also noticed my descriptions are only in german (shame on me) i guess if something new comes to your map from my bls pack i will write a short description of it here in the comments.
