Station Track Diagrams with Track & Switch speeds


Recommended Posts

I feel like a nice addition for the dispatchers and even for the drivers is either an in-game or external track diagram of sorts that shows the various tracks speeds and the speeds of the crossovers and turnouts in stations. Would especially help dispatchers on the larger stations or any stations that have crossovers and turnouts with different speeds to more efficiently move trains.

Attached is an image someone posted from a bug report where the crossovers at the new dispatcher station Grodzisk Mazowiecki are labelled with their speeds. 

Ideas to implement this in game could be an overlay for the computer dispatch stations like the attached image that can be turned on/off and a physical map on the wall in the relay stations. Or could add it as a tab in the new EDR system that you can reference for the speed through the station you are on.

For the purpose of this thread, its a suggestion to add an official tool whether its in-game systems or out of game reference sheet. I'm suggesting something be provided for people to easily reference for the speeds of crossovers, turnouts, and tracks in the stations to more efficiently route the trains.

The idea of a player who really wants to dispatch but has to scour the forums or try to find track diagrams of the IRL stations on other websites to find out what the speeds are is not ideal. And saying they should drive the routes is not a good answer that some people have had. I work on trains IRL and don't care to come home to drive simulated trains but for the purpose of this game, I prefer to mainly do the dispatching part as it is more fun to me.

Linked below is a community made speed map guide that I know I will reference but apparently the data was found based on IRL data instead of all game data. Definitive info from the devs would be best.

Then again this is still an Early Acess, I did figure things out since the start thanks to that webpage, whenever I have doubts I either search for the station that I want or I go and have a look with Google Earth, still useful though the link you've shared, thanks!

Another good example of having something saying the crossover speeds. I keep seeing people and community made content that says all crossovers/turnouts at Lazy Lc are 40km/h. There is actually a single 60km/h crossover on that panel and its not visually represented like at Zawierce. And if you use it, not only can the trains go 60km/h, they avoid one of the 20km/h temp speed restrictions on track 3 and can depart faster 🙂
