    Trains and Regional Transit by bsquiklehausen | Modded Tutorial | Cities: Skylines

    January 16, 2020

    Hi everyone! My name is bsquiklehausen. Thanks to Paradox Interactive, I’m here for a third video to talk transit and
    how you can use it best in your cities in Cities: Skylines A few previous videos
    on this channel have focused on different types of transit in your
    cities. So be sure to watch Some Fairlife Milk’s video on vanilla and console
    transit, and my previous two videos on low and high capacity transit, all right
    here on this channel. Links will be in the description for all of them, and
    they’re probably in the top right corner of this video around now as well. For the
    last part of this transit mini-series we’re gonna be mostly be talking trains.
    By default, trains have the largest capacity of any single vehicle in the
    game with each holding 240 riders But with custom trains that number can get much higher. The downside to all this capacity is the land that trains take up.
    While you could tunnel under much of your city to avoid knocking down too many
    buildings, train stations have an enormous footprint even for just the
    small one that only serves two tracks this makes it really hard to get really
    good service coverage with trains alone Train lines can also share tracks with
    freight trains and regional trains while both of those can have enormous benefits that could also clog up your rail network So separate systems or careful
    planning is essential Of course, separate systems take up even more space which makes this disadvantage of trains even more clear. Where trains are most useful
    though, is regional transport Trains should make limited stops almost
    entirely beyond the range of your city center and metro network with each train
    station at the center of a small, low-capacity transit network to serve the
    neighborhood that surrounds it Using the massive multi platform train stations
    from the Mass Transit DLC makes this kind of network even easier since you
    can easily make a hub between the different branches of your commuter
    system, with each service getting its own platform, helping to alleviate train
    traffic on the lines. The sheer size of them is mitigated somewhat by the number
    of connections, but it’s still a huge piece of infrastructure to design your
    city around. Commuter trains are great for high-density, transit oriented
    development around the stations, but make sure there’s at least some sort of noise
    barrier between the tracks and some people’s houses, or it
    can get too noisy to live close to the station If your outlying areas aren’t
    really suited for full high-capacity train service, you could take a lot of
    these principles and swap the vehicle out for a bus, transforming it into a
    commuter bus. While sacrificing a lot of capacity-competitive trains, a commuter
    bus is the distinct advantage of being able to make multiple stops both in the
    town it’s coming from and the city it’s going to The best stop layout for this
    is a short line of one to two stops in the originating town and then a couple
    stops in the destination city as well with very few or no stops between the
    two at all. These express buses can use your highway network for movement, or to be
    more efficient, can use a dedicated road making them basically teeny tiny little
    trains that drive around city streets at the ends of their routes. The best way to
    make sure that an area is set up for regional transit is to build the transit
    network out first and then zone higher densities nearest to the station. It’s
    how we built a lot of these towns in real life and it’s very effective for
    letting people get to where they need to go without a car. With trains or commuter
    buses serving the furthest reaches of your map metros, and rapid surface
    transit linking your urban areas, and local buses and trams serving your
    suburbs, you’re very well set up for a transit focused city with little car use.
    But these systems don’t work well unless they work together. Making sure that you
    have good, close transfer points between your different systems and
    different lines is an incredibly effective way of making sure that your
    transit systems are used. Having a set of separate systems can be just as bad as
    not having any system built because when nobody’s riding your buses they
    just add to the traffic and cost you money Creating good transit is both an
    art and a science and the optimal network and layout can often take the
    form of many different things. Using the data views and the route query to find
    out where your sims are coming from and going to can help make sure that you
    serve them with the transit network that can rival or even exceed what we have in
    real life. So now that you’re a transit expert I want to thank you all very much
    for watching these videos. Be sure to subscribe to the Cities: Skylines Official
    channel for more tutorials from all sorts of creators, me included. And if you’re
    interested in transit, come on over to my channel bsquiklehausen as well.
    Thanks again and happy building!

    The Great Railfan Adventure McAdam Station Final Part12

    January 10, 2020

    Transfer papers on the other side Any areas that are off-limits like inside the buildings Okay Okay Reloading You’re not sure Yeah, that’s the car shop side this is locomotor side, okay Okay That would be a bunch of them over the leases they do they lease all this stuff song after so many after so long There’s a line I think that went to Greenville from here yeah mostly abandoned now Just want to go knock it it goes up the Brownville and then hits Pistol Signal 16-cylinder Sanding tower Yeah, you come back another year. So this all be changed all this will be gone really Yeah, this will be all knocked down a remodel new building built. Okay? Yeah, that’s good thing. We’re catching it when we are yeah, this is pretty historic stuff that That was the thing. We had to get the approval from the Historical Society just to take down what we’re taking down and they got the money to to Destroy what we can destroy some of it was already falling down but We got to clean it up, right a lotta Just that that floor there’s there’s nothing but asbestos there if all these buildings just have asbestos on yeah So it’s it’s a major hassle as far as cleanup. Mhm almost costs us more money. I mean just like that thing That’s the majority of the well, there’s some killer equipment in there Little tunnel motors TV 30 dive Larry struck an electric Told you there’s a lot of stuff here. We’re not gonna be able to fill it all in one day We should probably hit back sowed Hole Oh Plus you try to go around find us Bucks Just like the Wonder DanceSport, yep Okay, we’re on in the Wyatt Brownville Why do you want it now? Don’t so traffic To the bridge You It’s not Another oldie Especially me Oh, yeah He’s got the roof off in the car the door There’s a little track Oh S-s-san Gino’s Oh No It’s not the mattress Looks open It is open It’s awesome That’s a just give you little information the station is built in 1999 finished in 1901 And then in 1910 1911 added on both sides So they had done the dining room lunch counter and the expression of the baguette in Germany. I’ll show you guys are an eclectic Maxilla the architect for the building. His name was Edward Maxwell. There’s all sort of dedicated to him from her life And then the president anticipated Pacific rail at the time was away abandoned And so this row right here is the agents office and the last occasion to hear his name was Jim McCracken. He’s up there But it’s a huge area for communication between the states and making sure you know, there’s no Making sure everything ran smoothly. Yeah The checklist is here because they would actually play checkers when you know things about slow, but it was usually never slow Is there a 16 passenger trains daily? And then on top of that 30 freakin little booth and this is the junction. So these are all the roots Don’t would go over into What you lost passenger train furniture here no more that was the FSB area yeah 94, um Came cific. I’m pretty sure as an athlete 79 So this room is called the single ladies wait here the reason it’s called that is actually he was sort of forbidden for women to smoke in public That’s the station from 1900 1901 right there in 1910 1911 when they had gone to This is where just a before and after picture you guys hit And then we also do have a duel we actually have a deal here which I gonna show you guys So there’s just more like a little heavy sort of crimes around the railway station So it was like jumping on the train without pain you need to pay 10 cents or spend 30 days in jail So this is just a the name address and recharging their sentencing So, do you know what these That’s a hoop for orders We’re trained buffs Give me a harder question The floors look relatively new II yeah, this is all been restored in 2009-2010. Okay, this wool this actually started to the hotel lobby. So you come in here go to your room There’s 18 spots for the keys, but there’s actually only 17 rooms, so, do you know why? No number 13. Yeah. Yeah, I can’t stop Person this whole summer. I started here in the end of June. Mmm to get that order No one I had so many people think it’s like for booking Okay Are we able to see the upstairs is that open? Okay. I’d like to see that too. I Remember when the station was like the preservation was first starting they had a fundraising campaign to put a new roof on it was probably the Hotel After that So it wouldn’t have been a room like this one it was not when it was Owned by the railway No, okay So this is like something that you can rent out for local groups. I think there’s dinners that happen here In the dining room, we actually have like little weddings and stuff Yeah, it’s still very much. So I’ll wait for the museum to make some money. Yeah, exactly. That’s good Can we see the kitchen as well? Yeah, let’s go to this below This is is this original the floor is actually original. Okay, but not like the light fixtures But was this a dining room? Yes. Okay. I Used to have one of those clocks, yeah It’s all but yes, you are a probably no illusions like the dining there. This is more the upper Class In your face you Know Anyone like walking by that they knew or in fact, here’s a window. That was very fairly Hmm and I don’t know what that is any idea Yeah, yeah, so it looks like some kind of slicer Yes I’m leaning towards but this was for the common folk. Yeah, just the peasants My luncheon here anyway, so mmhmm yeah, so before this sort of Fifties style patter with the W shape. It actually used to be a high would encounter midnight with the stools There’s more of a horseshoe shape Then 1953 they changed it to this style. Okay So when would this have been closed? Lunch counter it was privately owned after the so the 1976 is when the dining room shut down where it was privately owned from 1976 on basically until the station was sort of shut down and then finally given to Historical Society Children’s work, right Then over there Patman over there there’s a bunch of broken dishes actually to face so there’s a lot of girls that work in the lunch counter here and They had a certain management her name was Miss Clint, he’s very strict So they had to clean every single dish before they could leave and so that was they wanted to go to a dance and Harvey one night and then So what they did with the dirty dishes it’s Daniel okay, and they like so they’re dancing and replaced it with Basically And then they are actually never caught two person training came here And stopped here and then the prisoners actually asked the guard to take a go for a swim And so very angry In France where they cut their feet legs That’s how they were discovered and that sums either But that was years after the dance I take it yeah So there’s 17 rooms, this is a five-star first-class hotel is all stars first class because each room So originally would there not have been like water They had the Clawfoot tub, so there’s an actual original one in the other room. Hmm. So wouldn’t you like those tubs and Because later on when the hotel was shut down the crew from the Train would actually stay up here So this this was the north’s crew me down this way South crew would be down that way but so yeah, that’s why some things are doing some things more a Shower Yeah, we’re still working on restoring something exactly yeah, well it’s a big project We’re just on our way back from the stakes we were down there looking at Yep, go ahead Do you think they’ll ever turn this back into a hotel Yeah, oh, that would be great Really have the whole station our store and then actually uses sort of as a hotels or you know, novelty stay. Yeah Way to generate some income He’s sleeping in here to me they tried to put two beds per side so they can have a little Closet in himself So this was staff quarters. Yes, okay The girls that worked in the last time. Mm-hmm It’s tiny is these little crawl spaces the girls have actually used to go over to the men’s dorm. It’s neat. Yeah They can go out there and walk on the ledge Or something. No, they just go right through the plate That’s well. I’m the walls like all the beams and Stronger all I see I see what you’re saying. Yeah through these pockets here Wow You don’t have the light there That’s crazy that would be the trick I guess to find out if the girls have gone through if they broke the bulb Come over and drink and smoke This is wrong, this is like The roots already host is dedicated to the red eared men. Let’s stay here and work here in town. So This wasn’t crew quarters originally that happened in later years Well, this this isn’t always like three quarters, oh, I mean the Train Chris oh Really stay like it is more the second floor, okay Well, I’ll tell you there’s there’s a cup a lot of training geeks out there like us First time I was here was I think it was 2009 So I think that the bathrooms had been Just renovated. Okay on the main level Yeah, my didn’t get to tour the whole place. So I don’t know what’s changed since then Just they’re beginning zoos actually just the waiting everybody tour. Mm-hmm, right you would like five minutes, okay Yes This used to be the library we’re now working on it so well It’s nice to see it a work in progress knew but she couldn’t even see the pizza Wouldn’t play it in Yeah So this was library for the people for the passengers and the page, okay, so You find anything in the walls like old Style, I haven’t found anything some someone else probably has but your hands and stuff Probably from the fifties or whatever Like that Yes of these washrooms, I guess we were in this area when I came up here There was an event for I think New Brunswick southern had gotten some funding for Improvements there was an event here at the station to launch that that was the other time. I was here Of course the time we Get off six years old All right, we’re going into jail The green is a Pretty standard color and in terms of like and inside the locomotives and whatnot as well Yeah, so I’m guessing they just this is our the chief paint base, right? Yeah, that was a post-war paint They used a different color before the war I forget what it was Going into the Express room It’s usually expression but I’m out sorry Fiona Tillery room. It’s like just for the auxilary Yeah, we know a guy who’s gonna pump her Yeah, he brings it up for the via family day in Halifax. Mm-hmm Painted mile marker Very good should probably teach me more than I’ve already been telling You no those are used for That was just a signal Good lanterns. Yeah, it’s a marker lamp I’ve worn it home like putting a nightlight in it with an extension course. I can turn it off. Oh It turned out really nice No one from surco today actually see the engineer jumping from the window, oh, yeah He wasn’t sticking around On collision CP whistle sign a Lot of people ask me about is a cool ballast ballast. Yeah the rock that goes around the tracks Yeah, that’s a that’s a tool that would go underneath the tie I think for probably Moving your ballast in and out to bring the level up or down or whatever How long you guys finished in the transom It’s probably locked Railfan and their journey To And almost Yep Anyway folks. I hope you guys enjoyed the great railfan adventure and We’re both tired. It’s been an interesting trip a lot of interesting things. We saw and Thanks for coming along with us. And we appreciate all the people we met the fun things we did big thank you goes out to all those who support us and Do you think I forgot that Anyway folks, this is a lord dragon.
