the00guvna: Thank you for commenting! They must be desesperate, but where else can they go?
figgy: Thanks for your comment and for your suggestion. The sewage plant is nearing the failure, but the power plant is a coal one and the failure wouldn't have catastrophic effects...
CTMandR: Thanks for your comment, my friend! I didn't made the EL-rail for commuting purposes more than for aesthetic purposes. I said some time ago (don't know if here or in the CJ forum) that, under an European point of view, the EL-rail gives a feeling of being part of a run-down zone, because you can see all the rust and imperfections, and trains are noisy... At least, the places I know where trains or subways run over ground aren't the ritziest ones...

Blackwater needs its industries to survive, and industries need railroads to take their goods to other factories or to the markets. This is why Blackwater's industrial district has a good amount of railroads laid through it.
Coal can only arrive to the power plant by two means, by sea or by rail. It's usual to see trains stopped just in front of the plant unloading their coal and going back empty.
Blackwater industrial districts are being slowly replaced by residential blocks without cleaning up the entire zone. An small railyard has survived this expansion but it is totally abandoned. People stole the rails a long time ago, and now weeds grow everywhere.
At night, rail terminus are used to keep cars while they're not running. Grafitti painters thank very much this idea, they have plenty of cars to practice with.
