Well, remember the plan for the high-speed link between Greston and Sunnyvale? That plan was laid off and replaced with a Heavy Mass Transit System called G-S(Greston-Sunnyvale)RailKnector. It's main purpose is to provide a fast connection between the two cities, whose combined population now tops 30,000.

We start off where we left off, at the Greston Station. It was built here to connect with the island's ferry system.

We head westbound. To prevent the demolition of buildings, the tracks go on top of the road(Chicago "L" style).

Pretty soon, we exit Greston and speed alongside farms.

About half a minute, and we're crossing the A5 freeway, also a connection between the two cities.

Another 1.5 miles, and we made it to Central Sunnyvale

What you just saw was the basic system. In the future, the line will be extended in both directions with branches going off it to other destinations. Also, the line doesn't open for a couple more days, hence the lack of trains.

-See you next time!

Hey there. I think you've shown some good shots of your rail network. One thing I'd suggest is mix it up for the pictures. Maybe show some morning, midday, and night shots. Zoom in and out to capture how sims are moving in your city. Elevated rail is awesome, but my view has been that it belongs inside the city---when ir borders or travels through farmland, it looks a little weird. I'd prefer ground rail near the farms. Just some thoughts. :)
