Sorry about the color in some of these pictures, I forgot to enhance a few of them. My bad.

Welcome back to Rockaway. Today, we are going to take a ride on the Rockaway Metro line C3. Rockaway Metro operates the rail lines in the city and those in the countryside and smaller towns on the outside, in the province of Hollister, known as the Provincial lines, beginning with the "P" prefix. In the city they act as express lines.

We will start at Dalorpe Park, a major station in a forest of new apartments. The train will head toward the city, crossing a freeway near its end.

Hawthorne Station, another rather popular station.

Segundo Road is near a stadium used for some college and high school matches, usually championship games in tournaments. It can also act as a fairground.

Crossing the River Theed....

Hortaleza Park Station, a station in the middle of a very important and expansive freeway interchange near the downtown. The C7 line will also join us here.

We then cross over another freeway, and, still on the viaduct, weaves through Downtown Rockaway.

Nearing the big station now.... a promotional banner for the Simlympics hosted by Insulo has been draped across a building too...

The Vera Evans International Terminal, home of plenty of city rail lines and provincial rail lines, but also serves plenty of lines proceeding well into other states, many going much farther than New Chandler City, which is seven hours away from Rockaway.

Olmstead Avenue is near a high school, hotel, and industrial district being replaced by colorful apartments (like the Pearl District in Portland).

This station serves a small mall, Corbin Square.

Logics Avenue, a major road leading into an industrial district, which the C5 will enter, leaving the track we (the C3) are on.

Union Square, a small cluster of new offices and sporting venues. The baseball stadium was recently used in the SIBF Baseball World Cup.

Ramsay Avenue crosses an under-construction freeway. The provincial line makes a stop here.

The University of Rockaway station serves one of two campuses of U of R, as well as the stadium that is home of Rockaway United FC during NCFL games (during DPL (international) games they have a different venue).

Seaview Avenue, near another freeway and the end of the line...

Finally, Holladay Station, the end of the line. On the other side of the avenue is the blue waters of the Solvanese Ocean (and a few hotels). What a nice ride.

Thanks for viewing, here is the route map if you want to see it :) (800x1148 jpeg. Not too big) Oh, and on the map, those blue lines are the freeways. Remember though that one was under construction and isn't on there (it comes between Ramsay and University of Rockaway).

Nice, when I saw the name of the update, I thought it would have voting poll, but no, still it looks nice.

You know I've always loved your custom content variety and how wisely you use it; again this update is a CC showdown! I've specially liked your use of Mas71's Japanese River, maybe we could see more of it on next updates...

Where did you find that terminus station shown on Holladay Station? I always 'need' terminus stations in my cities.

Nice city btw, seems you zoned smart.

I'm well aware of that bandwidth problem, it's because so many people have been viewing this update, and there are like 20 pictures, so it went from like 30% to 130% :P It should be fixed by now.

I'm glad the images are back because this is an outstanding update. From the stations to the trains to the small sections of your transit map - very good. Do you have a master transit map? I'd like to see it if you do.
