Hello!

Welcome to the Coralane, where we would be expreicing the isalnd by train. You may remember my less succesfull journal about the same reigon, which i deleted. Now I  have replaced it with this new one.

Basically, in my reigon the capital Point Pleasent is connected up to Great Providence, Providence and Huntsmout; 3 other imprtanat cites, by the Provishire mainline. I thought it would be nice to give a tour of my reigon by tain.
