Extra rail extensions in Contractor shops.
Sending 61 trains to Giovanni takes 20 rounds of train fades, whereas 61 trains to Antoni only takes 12. You have to allow around 20 mins from the time of sending to clear all the trains at Giovanni.
A "Your trains" button at the local destination stations.
Before the big change to match layouts to the app design you used to be able to access your trains while at the destination stations via the "Trains" button. You could then continue to send your IT trains while the fade was happening. Now you have to go back to the main station and send from there and miss the fades. You then end up with loads of trains coming in and going out not giving you the 20% bonus (Why do these non event trains even have to go into the destination station?). You can get away with it if the IT's are just coming back and the white lights appear but that doesn't happen often.
Upgrade all destination station standard rails from 4 to 5
Something I complained about via support when the 5th rail was introduced. End result is the same as above, 20% bonuses being missed even if you don't move from the destination station as well as gaping when they arrive back at the main station. The 20 min destination always has 5 standard rails.
Railway works "Special function" building
Gives you the ability to upgrade the set bonus of old Special Offer passenger/mail sets (18 months after their first release date). Outputs and cost of upgrade to match the latest Special Offer coaching stock. Upgrades last for 250 days.
At the end of the day once the output severely falls below the latest values you would just replace the coaching stock anyway. It would just allow us to run our sets for much longer and really old sets may become Set+'s.
List the finished contractors on the IT screen the other way round. i.e newest first
You're more likely to want to build up a new contractor's station once complete than an old one. On the app version having to flick the names up for every train is a pain in the rear end. A star system for the contractors could be beneficial. Also on the app why can't it remember the star that's been clicked. IT's on the app can involve the flick and clicking the star each time.
