Firstly I must say this is an excellent site that has added a great amount of joy to my SC4 sessions, and I'm hoping to tap in to the knowledge on here to help me with an issue I am having with passenger rail stations.
I currently have 3 areas in my city - two residential zones and a commercial zone some distance away, deliberately with no road connections to the residential areas to encourage train usage. When using the Maxis station (capacity 24,000) it works fine - I have 3 stations on the same line (2 for the Sims, 1 for the businesses). However I am finding my capacity is close to being maxed-out so I thought I'd use some larger-capacity stations.
On doing so, though (and I've tried a few - Modern Rail Station, Modern Arched Rail Station) my usage drops to zero instantly. These stations are on the same line as the Maxis stations (just replacing them), I've made sure the rails link to the stations themselves and nothing else has changed. But instantly I get the 'no jobs' and my city went from 60,000 to 7,000 in the blink of an eye.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong, and how I can use non-Maxis stations as intended?
Thanks in advance!
