I have spent months building my ideal megacity. The last three weeks I did an incredible amount of detailing, then I did a disk clean up and lost the last three weeks of saves.
I have a short attention span so it is now dead to me, on to the next thing. Here is what I have left to show; The city is based on Shinjuku concept. Three rail line terminals on the western fringes of a large city. That grew to be a second CBD. Architecturally it is a New York style brick city. Except for the Westgate city area. I love working in historical development. So Westgate was industrial/ train yards that were turned into a modern high tech hub starting in the 90's.
SM2 Oakland Train Stations.
Welcome back for more rail stations.
These stations are trench style old concrete 15m sunken models and are suitable for sunken rail transportation related networks. These are Heavy Rail passenger train stations.
Due to the nature of the network, no freight trains will use these stations.
Each one has a capacity of 75,000 passengers.
Lot size 6X3
Please follow the pictorial instructions included in this upload for best results.
There are 2 models. 1 with a roof and one without (NR= No Roof)
Complete station pictures included.
Optional - any wall retainers you wish to use, to dress up the trench as you see fit.
SM2 True STR Sidings are here!
Sidings are used mostly as a parking spot for trains and they are found practically in any nation that has a rail network.
This pack consist of 12 different STR sidings. They are from 16 to 22 tiles long! Made with dozens of proprietary train props families for maximum diversity.
Every time you plop one it will have different railcars showing on the lot so that even if you plop them side by side they will look different.
I also made a custom rail design overlay therefore almost all of them have different rail design.
They will connect to your RRW STR network and both your freight and passenger trains will run through them.
NOTE! You only need the GP38 folder (the locomotives) from the North American Freight Cars Prop dependency listed

I've recently been watching YouTube videos by Rambalac of long-take, un-narrated, high-definition walking adventures in Japan, and Rambalac's latest video riding the Chiba Urban Monorail might be of interest here:
I've ridden a monorail before, but it was not the suspended type like this, which provides here a peculiar view of the Tokyo region's urban jungle. As the video is in 4K, watch it full screen or on a large television so you can really see the cityscape through the cab windows.
While no doubt engineered very carefully, this is "heroic" construction in the sense that the infrastructure feels almost absurdly large and lofty, as if it were infrastructure built solely for the coolness of building infrastructure. William Gibson wrote in Neuromancer that the arcologies of the zaibatsu of the dystopian future would be in Chiba, and now I can see they will be connected by towering monorail. I will admit Chiba's looks like it would be an irresistible magnet for some giant, radioactive monster to tear through while us hapless passengers trapped in the suspended cars scream in movie terror.
