    I went ahead and built a complete rail system in SH based on the assumption that EA will someday allow the two towns to be connected either thru the mountains or over them. If not, I have two finished systems running for the convenience of the Springfield folks. And I have about 30 curves left over, which I'll use to expand the Springfield line as my town grows. No idea how many pieces I have but the inventory continues to grow. I'm sure my total track count is well into the hundreds. I just wish now I had gotten the Xmas station. Oh well........

    It took about 252 pieces of track (if I counted right), but I finally got all 4 stations connected. :D

    At least until they add the ability to run it into SFH. :P
    Congratulations! I recently finished my monorail with only 3 stations, so I know how you feel. Whew! :-D :thumbup:

    I passed on the Christmas one. I was low on donuts and decided 4 was enough for now.

    I still just have my original little monorail loop. Two extra stations are tucked away in a corner.

    In storage I have:

    117 straight tracks
    87 curves
    77 s ones
    103 short ones

    Who knows if I'll ever get motivated to build a big one.

    I had all my stations connected before the end of the event. Now, as my buddies generate more garbahj, I add new stretches that will eventually meet up after I get all the required pieces. I have quite a neat system set up. I wish, EA would allow us to go to anyone's SF to view their towns, not just friends.

    I've had my 4 stations connected up in loops around my towns for weeks. They just looked like a drunk designed them with all the curves and S curves wiggling back and forth like a roller coaster.

    I just finally replaced the last of the twists in my primary town with straight pieces yesterday. Now I have to replace all the short pieces with long ones.

    In my secondary town I need 16 more straight pieces to take out all the kinks so it will be at minimum 1 more round of crafting before that happens - and probably a lot more given how few straight pieces I get each week.

    It's too bad EA can't come up with a simple bartering system within the game to allow players the option of trading track pieces for other items or even for different track pieces. All these curves are just a waste. My SH system looks like the Runaway Mine Train at Six Flags but at least it is fully functional.

    I took a ride on your monorail a couple days ago. I think you have the longest track of any of my neighbors. It must have been a lot of work winding it through all of the pre-existing buildings.

    Nice work! :D :thumbup:

    Congrats Samaranth01 on your completed monorail! I also just laid the final track on mine - 242 track pieces, 3 stations, 5 substations, and the Rail Yard all connected. At least until more land is added or buildings that should be 'in the loop' lol. And 203 assorted curves in storage :roll: Add me to the list of those who'd like a way to sell/exchange them for something useful.

    Well done! I need five more long pieces to connect my five stations. Hopefully next week -- unless the game trolls me (again) with a one or two long-piece week. :roll:
