Massive factory train layout good throughput

Post by equitime77 »

Hi, Im one of those people that doesnt like the main bus system. I much prefer modular factories with trains. Currently Im doing a Bobs mod runthrough waiting for the update to come out. I thought I would share my factory. I currently have about 325 trains on it, tho not all are active at the same time. I would describe it as a four track, but it in fact has 8 lanes. I did have some help from Gepwin regarding how to control some of the areas that have really heavy throughput, I wanted a traffic light system that would let some through and then the others.

The system has the following rules:

The crossroads are in fact t-junctions. No train is allowed to cut right across anothers path.
Its basically a one way system.
The vertical track and the end turns on the crossroads are the only places that a train can turn around.

I very rarely get any stuck jams, especially after putting in the traffic light system in about 3 places.

Blueprint string for horizontal track/factory entrances

Blueprint string for factory walls if wanted:

Blueprint string for traffic lights: (I thought I had an original copy of this but I didnt, so I had to copy from a part of the track. Should still work)

(If anyone wants to tell me how to get the screenshots on the actual forum page please do so. Its been a long time since I last posted to a forum)

Importing does not work with these strings, says something about Unknown version ("H"). Can you update the strings?
