Muenchen Ostbahnhof

Description
Manage the eastern entrance and exit of Munich's busy S-Bahn backbone. Two times 28 trains on two tracks in a single hour are scheduled. Can you cope with the high frequency of arrivals and departures or will you cause a logjam?

The track layout is mostly accurate, with the exception of the sidings area between Ostbahnhof and Leuchtenbergring. The arrivals and departures at Ostbahnhof match the real weekday timetable almost exactly. Travel times between stations are not realistic and schedules at those stations have been adjusted.

The map has a lot of pre-built sensors and setting them up properly is part of the puzzle. If you are not yet familiar with arrival and departure sensors you should learn to use them on an endless map.


62 minutes, 53 trains, 2090 points for a perfect score. Moderate difficulty if you are familiar with sensors and automation.

This version of the map does not have a broken down train. You probably meant to comment on the harder one. The maximum score there is 2388 due to the two unavoidable "bad platform" penalties.

Eexcellent. Because of the breakdown-train, two mistakes are unavoidable.So the highest attainable score should be 2088.

Yes, that is a very good result. To get a better score you need to know the map pretty well. My intention was to create a map were mistakes happen and you scramble to minimize the damage.

My guess regarding the early penalties is S8x01. The train starts at the yard at 7:57 and needs to go to Ostbahnhof 1 at 8:05. But you have to park it for a few minutes to let S6x01 pass, which has to stop on platform 1 at 8:02. And there are a few more trains like that over the course of the map.

Managed to get 2058/2090. Not too bad for a first attempt I think.
I had some delay penalities at the beginning, I'm not quite sure where they came from. And at the end I messed up because I ended up blocking a platform, where I had intended to shuffle the train on a other track, but of course it was already counted as a bad platform...
