Language translation issue. What does GLR stand for?

I'm not natively English speaking. So I'm sure I will know the direct translation in my own language which is Dutch by the way.

I was looking for rail, trains and more or less overall mass transit mods. I come across the abbreviation "GLR" especially when looking for stations and rail related stuff. I tried searching GLR in dictionary/wiktionary all over the freaking internet but apparently the abbreviation stands for a dozen to the power dozen other things and nothing relates to rail that I come across.

What does it stand for?

Just a very simple question nobody should be bothered by, I really can't figure it out, sorry :)

  • W0W, that sure is handy. There's alot more to read in there to.

    I missed that topic, good to know that it is there. That may save me from asking questions of similar nature *:)

    Here's another "must-have" resource when trying to figure out the mechanics of the game (if you don't already have it).

    https://archive.org/details/SimCity_4_Rush_Hour_Prima_Official_eGuide 

    @Moses Zal found and posted this link over a year ago.

    Many of the stats are inaccurate, but the  Guide will give you a better, all-in-one-place, overview of the game mechanics than you will get from looking at any 500 pages in the forums.

    Google (keeping the quotes): GLR + "SimCity 4"

    Note also how some acronyms are underscored by a line of points:

    NAM, CAM, GLR, SAM, RRW, RUL, FlexFly, MODPACC, etc

    The forum's software recognises them and, if you hover the mouse over the acronym, a little box will appear with the complete name.

        Hello player.
        This time I bring you a beautiful full size industrial style Grain Elevator.
        SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD acts as a freight yard.
        Grain Elevators are all over the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
        This particular model had to be rendered in SD (Standard Definition) because of its sheer size (I could not coax my computer to cough up the full size HD version.
        However there is a somewhat smaller version which I managed to render in HD (High Definition), available as a separate lot.
        You will also find 2 sets of standalone Silos included in this Zip. These silos (1X and 2X) can be plopped in existing farms field and then by using a variety of MMP's to construct a roadway, can simulate silos on a farm.
        Both silos have no power, roads and water requirements therefore they can be plopped anywhere.
        The dirt roads will connect visually. Trucks will bring the goods and the DTR rail will allow freight trains to cross the lot after loading.
        I suggest to connect the DTR network as a spur because passenger trains will not cross the lot.
        Freight capacity = 80,000 tons
        Jobs = 268 low, 133 med and 26 high
        Plop cost = 39,200
        Power = 39
        Water = 154
        Dependencies.

        SM2 Old Coal Tower Spur
        This is an old rail spur, used extensively during the coal era. There are quite a few dotted along the railway network but they are abandoned.
        An old coal tower can still be seen including a very rusty and decrepit outbuilding.
        This lot features Real 3d Rails (not flat textures) for an even greater realism!
        3 pieces make up the ensemble:
        One 1x1 Transition piece between RRW STR and Real 3d Rails.
        One 1x1 Real 3d Rail extension piece, which allows you to extend the length of the ensemble.
        One 7x3 main lot with the scene itself.
        Plop cost 4000
        It gives some landmark effect.
        No power,water and road connections necessary thus allowing you to plop this in any remote location you wish.
        You will find them in the landmark menu

        Grain Elevators are allover the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
        This is the SD Cal Canal version of SM2 ADM Grain Elevator.Fully rendered including a grain transfer boom for fluvial operations (loading ships). Anyone that uses Cal Canals will find this version very useful.
        SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD Cal Canal also acts as a freight yard.
        The dirt roads and STR rail will connect to the game networks visually therefore you will see freight trucks arriving and freight trains leaving.
        Lot size 10x12
        Freight capacity = 65,000 tons
        Jobs = 180 low, 88 med and 23 high
        Plop cost = 22500
        Power = 125
        Water = 32
