Update 13 FINAL(for now)

Linthicum Heights Industrial Park and Cedar Valley Mall

The

Industrial Park has experienced Exponential Growth over the past couple updates. There has been an entire new Section Of Warehouses and Distribution Centeres built across the mail rail line, as well as a new rail spur built to the town of Lakeville to the east. The new addintions make this industrial area the larget in the Tristate area.

Some Pics!

The Cedar Valley Mall, the largest Shopping Center in Cedardale:

...  ...   ...BREAKING NEWS...   ...   ...

Cedardale quietly declared idependance yesterday, when the US senators from Cedardale slipped a clause into the healthcare bill giving them complete independance and immunity to US Military action...

Since no other senators read the bill, it was passed and Cedardale cannot be touched by the US military, or internaitional forces could act against the US in support of Cedardale

Tuesday, August 18, 2009-Cedardale Independance Day

Thanks to all for reading!

Stay tuned to follow the growth of Cedardale Government into a full nation status!

and ambleburg

1overview.jpg


CD5 snakes its way through the Hamlet

Ambleburg is a VERY small hamlet(<200 citizens[see my blog for population statuses in CD])

Thats why it was a perfect spot to build the airport to acommodate tourists coming to see Historic Cedarville and Industries shipping and Recieving Goods

The Airport is VERY accessible by industries, due to a massive railyard.

Here is the Main Cargo Center at the Airport, where the largest goods and quantities are handled
