there is a Russian(a) rail line in between NVK and AST, but no A station station in AST. Why not add AST to the A line and have that station as a A and B station?
Also, there are some other cities where merging 2 stations into one would be good.
Cairo- it would make the Arabian and Ottoman lines flow together, and increase the importance of Cairo since it would be necessary for holding 2 bonuses.
ULB- it is the end of one line and the beginning of another, it would be unlikely that they would have 2 different stations in that city which would make it hard for people to go right through. IT would make it flow better and make it easier for players to move from east to west in the northern part of the map.

Excellent, thanks captainwalrus. Notice also the shadows on the continent have been lessened.

Any other suggestion?

Just a nit-pick cairns, the Philippino line in the legend needs to be changed to 'M' from 'L'. What do those two bonuses in the lower right go to. Are they the transcontinental lines you had but removed?

Good work! cheers!

Isaiah40. i'm sorry, but this may be pulled out later from the Vacation Bin.
But it seems there is not enough support yet.....perhaps there will be more support after the Rail Africa map has run it's time.
I have not given up on this yet. :)

As do I. I know I saw that it had been started, but since I hadn't posted to it, and I have been following a lot of topics through "View your posts", I lost track of it until today. Still it's a great start. However the red text in the legend for the Russian line has the same legibility problems as it had on Rail Africa. (Perhaps it's too early for graphical nitpicking.)

thanks isaiah40...
I will also want some extra space "supersize" for this one, only 60 extra at the bottom so that it becomes 630w x 660h...that station is fine but it needs people and other scenery at the bottom to make it come alove as did Rail Africa after i put that background in.

So if you will get this out into the foundry as soon as Trafalgar is Beta (can't have mnore than two maps) and lets determine if there is enough support for it to continue. :)

IMO, there would really have to be something fresh and different from the other Rail maps, as we have plenty, I'd say.

I think there are better binned ideas to pursue, like Spanish Armada and CC's Treasure Island

This is not to say, though, that I necessarily disapprove this.

Gees Sully, you are really digging into that recycling box asking for Treasure Island. Tbh, i had completely forgotten about it.
Spanish Armada will happen but i need Xmas holidays to get that together, so it is vacationed until then, although i recall there wasn't too much support for that one either.

And basically i am happy to work on any of my past projects as long as there is community support for them, butit has to be decent support and not just one or two.
