Can you make another preview video?! I like the videos you make of unfinished and yet to be released routes.

Perhaps... If I feel like it.
But personally, I'd rather spend my time on actual production ;)

4 sidings available for HSL trains for the Zeeburg - Rijndam (-Airport) service, and two for local trains. Siding Z31 is just long enough to accommodate a single locomotive; should you be using a single locomotive and need to shunt around to the other end of the train. ;)

One more question.
When will the wiki pages be up for Ypenburg and Zeeburg?

EDIT:
Make that five more questions.
1: how long is the HSL between Ypenburg and Zeeburg?
2: What is the destination code for Zeeburg?
3: how long can the train length be for Zeeburg
4: is Zeeburg Haven for local trains or for events
5: can we get pictures of Zeeburg?

I know I’m asking a lot, it’s just because I’m excited for the next update :lol: :lol: :lol:

Haven't been thinking of that yet. Might do it this weekend.
EDIT:

1: how long is the HSL between Ypenburg and Zeeburg?
About 12 km, including the transitions between HSL and normal tracks. A bit more if you also count the distances from there into the stations.
You will have about 4,5 minutes at 160 km/h.
2: What is the destination code for Zeeburg?
I wanted to use "Z", but I already used that letter all over the network (including the railway network) to get to depot's/sidings. It would be a mayor remodeling of both the CTD and activities to change that. So I used "X" instead.
3: how long can the train length be for Zeeburg
If you do not plan to stop at Ypenburg, you can run a train between Rijndam Centraal and Zeeburg (track Z3; the track with the longest platform capacity) of up to 10 carriages + 2 locomotives.
But I recommend using 6 or at most 7 carriages, as that will fit tracks 4 and 5 too.
4: is Zeeburg Haven for local trains or for events
Local, diesel trains only (so you need the Class 230 for this). It follows the edge of the city to Zeeburg Harbor, and has a few turns and a series of level crossings.... Max speed 60 km/h (destination letter "H").
5: can we get pictures of Zeeburg?

Me too; I would have liked to release a lot of material a lot sooner. But let's just make the most of the extra time and therefore deliver a lot more when the time comes ;)
