Platforms in the last few betas have already been very long (for 3× SG3). The M5 platforms aren't that long, neither are tram platforms, so I guess they won't be that much longer than regular "long" platforms?
So you are maximizing the metro length at 2 SG3's? At the Rotterdam metro network that's normal, but on the Simvliet network 3xSG3 is a more normal limit.
On the Rijndam network, M5 was build as a outer-region local line; no high passenger numbers expected, so no need for extra long platforms. Other then that, the platforms are build for 3xSG3.

@Michiel
Is the color of the line light blue, like the Rotterdam line D? (Because the color at the station nameboards isn’t very clear)

Simvliet Lightrail is designed for 3xRSG3 indeed, although it will not be running at this length initially. Only when the connection between Simvliet Centraal and Araplein is made during rush hour some 3-car trains will run (only during the busiest hour, about half of the train compositions will be 2-cars and the other half 3-cars).

Will this be released as an Add-On or as Beta 3.15

Might be 3.15, might be 3.16. Don't count on it becoming an add-on; when Michiel is ready, he'll most likely make a new complete release out of it. ;)

So, any chance on this being included in 3.15?
