The one-way SNOT street I presented along with my short tram in its place between the houses.
About this creation
As announced on my tram page, here's the SNOT street, lying on the floor, between the houses, lying on wooden boards, and the tram is on its tracks, too, of course. In this setup, I let the crane lift new escalators into the shop.
The green-grey street plates in the front are somewhat preliminary and will eventually be replaced with another self-made street. But that's a matter of time and brick (and money) availability, and there are more important things first...
Closeups of the quite inconspicuous street, the tram, and the houses:
(Gotta get a lamp for that corner, I guess...)
And the back side:
That one on the end is a combined version of the Medieval Market Place houses, by the way, and the tan house is this one.
Here's a detailed look at the street modules and their bottom:
Maybe I'll add a third row underneath and under the houses, using some of the old bright-colored bricks from my youth that aren't really useful in a visible place; just got some of them from my parents' house where most all that old stuff is/was stored. At any rate I'll change the middle between the rails to 90° rotated bricks to get rid of the grooves.
Thanks again. Guess I'll write something about my ideas and project status on the welcome page.
Is the flexibility of this kind of street worth the extra costs? Well, that's probably something everyone has to decide for himself. :) I certainly like the flexibility which won't just be the tracks, but also other things like bike lanes <em>and</em> parking space, refuges, or holes that I might add in the future...
very ambitious and well tought of!,i have to question your decision about building the streets with bricks instead of the road baseplates,isn it more expensive to do it that way?,i know it s a more flexible system,but,is it really worth it?,i d like you to make a journal,explaining why ! ,if you could comment on my journal,as a respected peer city creator!
i d love that! welcome to moc pages!
and very impressive work!
