Number of platforms

My understanding was that the S16 stop was considered part of the station as well, adding two additional platforms and tracks to the count. --Blockhead (talk) 06:00, 11 August 2019 (CEST)

New western approach

Och_Noe:

Per your request, here are a couple of options for connecting the new tracks approaching Personhood West Station from the west:

  • Option 1: This route attempts to follow the terrain to a reasonable extent. This results in the track being placed slightly north of the station before turning south to reach the entrance.

Option 1 - Roughly follow existing terrain

  • Option 2: This route takes the most direct approach which would require either a tunnel through or significant excavation of a hill near the station entrance.

Option 2 - A more direct approach

Note that both options show the route angling south for a short distance at the western end of the proposed route in order to avoid the shore. That short angled section of track was built after the map images were generated but can easily be removed if you don't agree. Both routes also include the addition of a bridge over the existing road

The first image includes a red and yellow striped section that shows a possible future "Y" junction that could be added later in case the line is extended northward. This could of course apply to the other option as well.

I have a slight preference for the first option for aesthetic reasons but am open to either or even something different if you prefer.

I believe that the first one should be built, especially with the connection to the north to close the ring started by the PHNB. --Gabriel (talk) 12:22, 7 November 2019 (CET)
Thanks for your images. I also prefer the first option, because there is also the idea to add an underground depot in the north of the station. The second options would run through that area. I will mark a possible way with a spray painter.

I have not yet marked a possible path. I still think if a long bridge or a curvy path is better, also the slope can only be build with 0° or 45°, not the 22° (?) direction.

Yes, I saw that the path was not yet marked. I only built as far as road because I wanted to see if the tracks should go above or below the road. Even though I currently have them (partially) built above the road, I haven't yet decided if that's what I'll keep. There may be less of a grade change for the tracks if I have them go below the road. Alternatively, I might not change the grade of the tracks at all and instead insert a new bridge for the roadway to go over the tracks which is likely what would be done in reality. If I keep the existing track as is, however, the idea would be to then continue with a bridge to wherever you placed the markers so as avoid having more large grade changes along that section of the line.
