I was tinkering with one of my cities last night (SimCity 4 Deluxe, fully updated, with NAM 36 + various other plugins, incl Bullet Train). I have a monorail line (restyled as a Shinkansen line by the "Bullet Train" mod) coming into my city at center of north edge, heading for downtown (center of city tile). To get there, the most direct route is to cut right through a northern industrial neighborhood. But that would involve the monorail line crossing over several tram-on-street lines, and I can't get the draggable monorail tool to cross those; it says "cannot place monorail on reserved tiles" or similar wording. I can't find any puzzle pieces anywhere to do this either. Is there a way to have monorail cross over tram-on-street? If so, how do I do this? (As is it, I have to route the monorail completely around my industrial neighborhood, which works, but I'd prefer the more direct approach.)

      Ponte Sant'Angelo, once the Aelian Bridge or Pons Aelius, meaning the Bridge of Hadrian, is a Roman bridge in Rome, Italy, completed in 134 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian, to span the Tiber, from the city center to his newly constructed mausoleum, now the towering Castel Sant'Angelo. The bridge is faced with travertine marble and spans the Tiber with three arches; it was approached by means of ramp from the river.

      It has come to my attention that Caribou's website went down back in 2016 and after scouring the internet there is no trace of any of his work.
      Since I have his work stored in a secure offline vault, I feel that in the spirit of preservation, his work should be available to the public once again.
      These lots and models were made by Caribou and are provided AS IS, nothing in the Zips has been changed by me.
      Since he never provided any pictures I took it upon myself to plop all the lots in game for the purpose of taking snapshots in order for everyone to peruse them before downloading.
      Anyone in the future who would like to create new lots from these models can now use these uploads as a dependency.
      There are 3 lots in this zip
      1) Elevated Rail Station
      1) Elevated EL Station
      1) Monorail Station
      Many Thanks go to Tyberius06 for bringing this matter to my attention.
      Kind regards

      I just discovered an interesting way to provide huge income for growing small towns. Check out the town "Arnek" shown in the attached images, for example. It's a tiny, sleepy agricultural town, with about $250/month tax income and $1500/month in expenses. Normally it would go bankrupt in a big hurry. But this town is actually profitable, even with taxes set low! And it didn't do a deal with Dr Vu (waste dumps, missile ranges, Area 5.1, etc). Instead, it's funded by monorail!
      Normally, a monorail in a tiny sleepy town would be a boondoggle. But, if you establish a regional monorail system stringing many towns together, preferably with just one monorail station per town (preferably a high-capacity plugin station, not the low-capacity one that comes with the game), and have some towns be mostly residential (more people than jobs) and others be mostly commercial and industrial (more jobs than people) then sims will make heavy use of your monorail lines, and the income from each monorail station will far exceed it's expense. This can actually fund an entire small town, giving it money for services that it couldn't otherwise afford (police, fire, medical, schools, transit, landmarks, etc). See the purple line in the attached region linking "Lud", "Arnek", "High Desert Plateau", "Alpine Moor", and "Calla Bryn Sturgis". That line is being used by up to 43,000 sims each day in some areas! And every town along the route reaps the rewards from the transit ticket sales.
      I'm curious: how many folks reading this have already stumbled across this way to generate revenue? And how many find this to be something new to them?

      (I am now linking to the download "Track Textures for Cogeo GLR Stations 20110918 1.zip" in Ebina's Mediafire account. It is the same textures as the old dependency; it will work fine.)
