Hello to All!

Last time we stopped at the entry signal, this time we go further! 2.gif

OSITM Special Part 4: Around the Church of Leimersheim - Hochdorf

ositm 4.01

We stopped here yesterday at the entry signal of Leimersheim - Hochdorf. The signals are the upcoming HD version of the German Semaphores (so to say v2.0) and are in beta. Unlike its SD predecessors the advance signal signal post is now a separate prop and needs to be placed separately, too, ...

ositm 4.01a

... as you can see here (after a little work in the LE).

ositm 4.02

Same place, seen from the other side.

ositm 4.03

Closeup of the exit signal and a level crossing.

ositm 4.04

The siding for the small freight terminal and the local industry. It has no signals as it is served from the big neighbour station Leimersheim.

ositm 4.05

In the "CBD" of Hochdorf the Landesstraße (state road) crosses the railroad with a level crossing. Being not too empty it is discussed for years to close the level crossing and replace it with a underpass or overpass.

However noone wants a big hole (during the construction) or bridge in the middle of this village and the proposed bypass was finally dismissed due to ecological and financial reasons so the level crossing survived untill today.

ositm 4.06

The level corssing from the other side. You can spot the sign posts of the advance entry signal of Leimersheim.

ositm 4.07

Turing around shows the advance signal and the local veterinarian's house.

Okay, that was the first version of the update. But as I know you some more pictures wouldn't hurt, would they? No? Okay, let's have look around in the village of Leimersheim - Hochdorf! 1.gif

ositm 4.08

The cbd of Hochdorf is located around the St Martin church of Hochdorf. Looks rather harmless, doesn't it? But when you look closer ...

ositm 4.09

.. you'll see some ... well ... umm ... "commercials" that you wouldn't search so close to a church ...  33.gif

And the bank (greed) and the pub (crapilence) aren't the most harmful sins there ... 

ositm 4.10

A closeup of the sunken rail and the houses ...

ositm 4.11

... as well as the veterinarian's house.

ositm 4.12

An overview. On this side of the Landesstraße you don't find industry etc, only houses and farms (and the vet).

ositm 4.13

Usually people are making jokes if a human doc is living so close to cemetery, but here some people think that the cemetery is located so close for those who died when they saw the vet's treatment bill ...  30.gif

ositm 4.14

The Landstraße leaves to Klemmbach. We do know that intersection there 2.gif

ositm 4.15

A closeup of a farm close to Hochdorf.

ositm 4.16

And finally an overview over the village to conclude it.

Next time it's going to be "completely different" so know cliffhanger today!

See you tomorrow! Have fun!

So, you have lots of different train automata skin but you haven't downloaded a custom skin for bus automata yet? Incredible!

Again, another brilliant rural update; today with special stuff from Papa Nardo!

@Samerton: Thanks for the compliment!  

@Schulmanator: Thanks for the compliment!  

@ImVhOzzi: Well, from time to time ... but I still like to here!  

@TekindusT: Well, you know the Bus automata (unlike the yellow school bus) has something in common with the freight train diesel: it's so unspectacular that it just fits - I never had the feeling I should replace one of them  ... 
Glad you like it today.
