I'm new to SimCity 4. In SimCity 3000, you could build subways and rails and connect the two. I cannot see the option to do so in SimCity 4. There is a subway to elevated rail connector, but I don't see any connectors for subway to regular rail. Can subways connect to rails in SimCity 4, and if so, how?

You cannot do this with stock SimCity 4 or Rush Hour, but there is a popular plop file which you can add to obtain a building with this functionality.

NDEX RailtoSubway Transition 2

A fully-functioning network-enabled plop allows the connection of railroad tracks at the top of the ramp descending down to a connection to the subway network at the bottom is now a possibility!

The author of the NDEX plop says himself it is NOT truly functional. The elevated cars APPEAR to transition to rail but in fact do not. They just disappear.

Do you have a source for this? – Frank Jan 2 at 17:56
