That is what I thought also Gwizz,
But these engines are getting their bushings worn out, as there isn't any oil in the gauge, and even show the oil icon for the shortages. An occassional situation, but something a player has to watch.
Now you have the established 'bridgeways'. The one to the Sea Bird is adequately placed but I found that the one to the Sea Horse, although 'nicely' placed, consumes a lot of distance to Piers. And all depends on the player, their revenue, and their strategy.
I had made all the connections to Sea Bird, Bauxite Pier, and the Island Fertilizer. By that time I had an adequate amount of revenue/cash to build a suspension bridge from the Produce Pier to Sea Horse. The chose is up to a player. $1+M for track via the bridge connection to Sea Horse and 6 times the distance to the main Piers, OR, $5+M for the suspension bridge, just across the waterway.
My 1st attempt from the Produce Pier track ended up with a giant "V" in the approach, as it was too close to the water. A 2nd attempt was more realistic, but I had to start laying track between the Island Sugar City and the Labor Depot.
Now I didn't get finished (Extra Gold)as soon as Gwizz by the 9-11th, and not until the 16th. However, I was working on an experiment of trying to get an adequate amoount of coal to the Electric Plant for 3-4 days, without being penalized 10% penalty. That solution was to build an independent Coal Depot along side the 'electric plant' itself.
SO Gwizz, when can we look for another of your created imaginative scenarios?
