What’s A HSG3?
A HSG3 I believe is the 5700 series ordered by Rotterdam for the line out to Hoek van Holland.
He means Line A. And you're right. Also for the Randstadrail expansion. I guess Lines A and D will be the circle line. Maybe not. Tell me if I'm wrong.

Im somewhat addicted to making screenshots of trains in this curve https://imgur.com/a/0EMqKt7. Its not a really wide curve but the fact that its like on the side of the viaduct gives it a special feeling whenever i watch a train pass this curve
I like going fast :) Why isnt a HSL in MSB a thing :P

Why doesn't the citylink have their turning signals linked when coupled together? That doesn't seem street legal when on the streetrunning sections. How would the car behind the light rail know to go around when the hazards are on in the front vehicle but not the back? :?:

in reality yes the front one would control the rear turn signals but without high voltage jumper cables the transmission can't happen

Citylink has train couplers.

The couplers in Metrosimulator do not transmit that signal. Take a look at the 5200 SG2's; only the front one will use the function.

If that's the case, I will model my own electric cables and connectors for the automatic couplers.

Well I think the problem is that the whole indicator script in MetroSim was made for the SG2, which indeed never displayed indicators on the whole train. The reason for that is that they never needed nicely working indicators. They just needed to have indicators at all to serve Sneltram sections. Note that those are never actually streetrun like a tram.

If Sjoerds trams use the same script they will also only be able to display indicators on the unit they have been enabled in, even though thats not realistic.
