Post your railroads!

This topic is a nice little place for people to share their awesome railroad builds using the Advanced Trains mod by Orwell.

to get things started:

Sloped Viaduct. also, the new train pitching in v5 looks awesome, thanks to v5's new entity rotation.

LinuxWorks Server (port 30000 at linux-forks.de) has tons of railway. You can find them at the server Wiki.
Here's some of them on the server (mainly related to Crossroads, as I am currently working on trains there).

Another screenshot of a 45-deg. track:

Also, I really don't recommend using only one track for the line unless it's a loop line (in my photo). With double tracks and interlocking (or LuaATC) it is possible to have multiple trains on the same line.

Unfortunately, train doors can't open on both sides at the same time. One of your platforms is useless. I would recommend replacing that unused platform with a banner showing the station name or something like that.

I know that. Its just the slightly imperfect symmetry would bother me. :p

Ok, but if you can have two train lines there you can actually use the other platform and keep it's look. At least you can consider placing another track at that platform even if you have no train running there (yet). Anyway, I would still recomming looking at the trains at the LinuxWorks Server. They have some nice train lines.

The advtrains_moreplatforms mod is quie interesting - also includes paths that do not block trains.

Reworked Basecamp Station to have a whopping 4 tracks (with 2 more behind this point-of-view)

Was a pain to move the massive viaduct over a few nodes, but other than that it was easy enough.

If you lack the reality, go on a trip or find a job.
