Frdm920: I only just realised you are a Sydneysider! To bew honest, I went through a list of British Prime Ministers and Asquith was there. The station is called 'Eastland Grand' on the STEX.
Reikhardt: Hahah... I died when I saw that...
ImVhOzzi: Thanks, you have Ill Tonkso to blame for that pic. Such an intersting building.
sc4fanatic/slayer: Thanks! I hope to see you enjoy!
TheMentalist: They are great seawalls, aren't they?
Now to buisness...
Blackmoor is surrounded by hills on the east. It also serves to seperate some of the suburbs from the city. The hills are mainly covered in forest, but on the city face there is a rather unique area, Arcadia.
The terraces are filled with wealthy houses and surprise surprise: TREES!
This picture shows how close the terraces are to the city. In the foreground is Blackmoor's Central Station.
Arcadia station is to the extreme south of the terraces. It is close to the freeway and the tunnel that goes under the mountains.
These are some of the higher houses, near the forest.
Some of the areas are quite steep. The retaining walls hold bad the hills to prevent erosion, but there is always the danger of it slipping...
...Like it has here. Fortunately, there were no houses in the path, but the street was cut in half. It has been evaluated and is stable, but the houses (where the grassy area is) have been evacuated and removed as a precaution.
The road on the left forms a steep cutting on the hill.
An intersection in Arcadia.
The tree-lined roads are pretty to drive along.

I hope you enjoyed this entry. As always, comments welcome!
