I made a monorail system map

So excited to finally rebuild my entire rail system, i decided to make a system map for it!

I live in Atlanta, USA, which has a terribly inadequate light rail. So i wanted a good one for my SF. I considered having one line throughout the town, but i really like to make extra stations and have multiple trains running around. I'm also super happy the recent item limit increase has allowed me to fully complete the rail, which has intentionally been missing 50% of its pieces.

Here it is.j4kenkwdnypk.png


It's really just artwork i created to share with other TSTO fans like you. The neighborhoods are exact, as i drew them over an actual full town portrait. I hope you like it!

This is a pic of the Central Station where all three train lines originate. The Red Line goes to SH, both universities, and terminates at the Airport. It's a very nice train. The Green Line goes to the hospital and the unemployment office. It's an ok train. The blue line goes to the sports arenas, KL, and the old railroad station. It's the most worn out train.
All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

  • That's cool!
    Whoa, whoa, whoa – I only accept cash, bitcoin, or GameStop stock.
  • You've got tracks that go places and trains that run - you'll never be given a city transit job !!
    You'll often find me on Brooders tapped-out.co.uk
  • Wow that’s very impressive ! :o
    Job welldone !
  • Nicely done, 4Junk. I spent a few minutes one day producing a recorded monologue of my main line - almost a ten minute run including station stops. The monologue ended up being longer than the monorail due to all the areas the main line runs thru, so I scrapped the idea as too cumbersome. And now, with the huge addition to my monorail system that runs thru the new SH land, a descriptive monologue would probably be on the order of twenty minutes. If I could move all 10,000 of my stored track pieces to a new TSTO, I'd build one continuous line that would likely be on the order of half an hour long. But..........who cares, right?

    Nice to have you as a TSTO bud..........and you have some nifty 3D type buildings in your town. Good work!

  • @4junk3000 nicely done!!! On my way to take lots of rides!! And I totally love the map, the OCD qualities of this group is truly commendable!! 🤣

    @surefirein93 my max single monorail ride was 8min43sec. I just broke the whole thing down and have about 7000 pieces of track in storage and all stations out with localised rail systems. Needed to reduce the item count for another 3D project I want to create :)

    @surefirein93 i need to check out your park, sent request-thought you were already in my friends list. Hope you don’t mind :smiley:

    Just LOVE the creativity available with this game!!!!
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
  • Spritals.....howdy! I thought you were on my friends list also. I'll make sure and click you thru. And for those who don't know Spritals, this user's TSTO has some of the most innovative and creative 3D structures of anyone in the game.

  • Awwwww *turning beet red!*
    Thanks for that!! There have been some incredible 3D designers in this game and I’m honoured to be considered amount them in some way.

  • That is an awesome map ! While on the subject of the monorail, I hope with the 3rd or 4th Hell on Wheels segments there will be a new monorail station to place in the current land expansion ! Maybe also, an additional monorail train paint scheme option, and even a railroad signal to place near a track.

    great work, I have been trying to do this for years, what I need is more proper train stations and respective pieces, I have asked in this forum for years lol, nit actively, but public transport should be featured better, also possibility to expand the airport

    THANK YOU!! And; I agree, which is why I made my own additions to the system, including at the Airport.

    For those of you who aren't my neighboreenos, here’s a tour of all my stations as listed on the map above:

    Springfield CMS is origin for all 3 lines:at8646yfcptz.png
    RED LINE 3tjb7ewvdxpu.png 1st stop with "limited service" (aka doesn't actually stop) is the only station in Springfield Heights

    qoe3s6zwhe8a.png 2nd "limited" stop at Katmandu University and the Mt Springfield Ski Resort area

    u5jj5mfznyti.png
    3rd stop, full service station at Santa's Village and Springfield University. This station has stairs for both sides of the river that separates these two campuses.

    zn3mu7cr7pwy.png
    4th and final stop at the Airport, much like my hometown in Atlanta, GA (USA)

    GREEN LINEqfz4m034krb1.png 1st full service stop is Medical Center, across from the hospital and adjacent to the Unemployment Office. Also nearby are the media offices and SF Institute of Technology

    lram0h71fbjc.png
    2nd and final stop is the Main St Mall-O-Rail store

    BLUE LINE48ngzmkoaabg.png1st limited stop is at the Stadium complex. There are suites that overlook Isotope Field; and separate entrances for each stadium.

    mgxd7f0rl68c.png2nd full stop at KrustyLand with nearby Duff Gardens and KrustyLu Studios

    7ck5dg5km3dc.png3rd and final stop at Tetanus Terminal, which i have designated dual purpose as the OLD Springfield Railroad train station. Of course there is a NEW SF train station, which was built in a "recently gentrified area on the edge of the Outlands, closer to downtown SF" 😆. This station serves Old Springfield, and the PowWow Casino on the native American reservation; which was "the first casino in the area before modern land developers created the big Vegas-style strip in the desert". (I love fabricating history for my town's development. LOL)

    Hopefully more monorail stations will come, but I'd love to see an actual railroad too.

    I share that emotion. I moved every old style building, fixture, animal and ornament I had in Springfield over to the "new" land north of Springfield Heights to create "Old Springfield". Now I have a western landscape folks can tour either on foot or via the Monorail extension that runs along one side of Old Springfield. (Yes, it has a sign that says Old Springfield.) Building OS was a hoot, though a bit tedious. Oh, and if you plan to tour, bring coins for the bridge keeper - or whiskey.

    I love when monorails are interconnecting but completely never thought this way. It's amazing and I think just the "like" button is not enough.

    I just noticed you customized that sign. Too cute! What a great scene I love it 😃

    Does anyone else here obsess over not putting monorail support pillars in the street? I wont do it if it's visible to the viewer
