Joining stations with gaps

Here is a trick for joining stations together with space between it. It is just like you explained in the tutorial, but you can delete the station that connects the stations. This way there is a gap between the stations but it is still one station.

Instead of using a train station to connect the stations you can also use a busstop or mail office since they are considerd as stations, too.

Another advantage is that you can set up (connected) stations outside the 3 tile boundry
(Note from the webmaster: Usually you can can build a station only 3 tiles around of a customer or producer)
