to get things started:
all aboard the Mountain Valley Express!

yes thats a 45-degree viaduct and station platform :)

Nice! Hope more stations will be added. There's a server (sadly forgot its name) that also runs the advanced trains and looked very promising and intresting when I visited it (lots of impressive underground stations and railways).
A list of my mods can be found here.

That was probably Linuxworks.
Since I've completed a working state of the interlocking system, the amount of railway services has greatly increased.
Nice thread, btw
Lua is great!

Its more than that line...

The basic 'story' of this park is an amusment-park-like tourist trap is run by the 'bunnyzanian' government, within the former kingdom of 'sqirrelia' who's queen is now just the governor.

So im going for a theme with 2 distinct areas: places where tourists are welcome, and the behind-the-scenes areas where everyone else lives and works, and generally keeps the park's wheels rolling smoothly.

Overall, its design is a series of train-connected 'zones' where tourists are allowed, the rest of the park's areas are 'behind the scenes', where only workers and local residents have clearance to go.

Mainly this is just one big excuse for me to build all kinds of crazy things. such as the greeter's 'office'.

Edit: the 4 buildings at the front are 'Dockyard Fortress Station' named after the Fortress right next to them. (left)

What is it about working trains that make worldbuilding in minetest so much more fun? :)

Hey, all I did was notice there was no screenshot thread for advanced trains. :)

Culture Express, (see earlier post), in its full length.
As seen from nearby Squirrly Sands Station (yes that's a reference to a certain post-apocalyptic game)

Also, my usual passenger configuration:
A Double-ended train with 2 passenger cars. and 2 steam locomotives.
