The commuter train through Angostura

The commuter train terminus station in Santa Leon is located near the soccer(football) stadium and CBD. This is the place where you can get onto a train to easily travel through the valley without dealing with traffic problems.

In between Santa Leon and Angostura is a narrow pass between the mountains which contains a highway- unfortunately, this highway is pretty much the only way to get from Angostura to Santa Leon, meaning a lot of people use it. For that reason, the commuter railroad was built. Thankfully, a new road with tunnels going through the mountains has already been approved for construction as well.

The region around Santa Leon in the north island is mostly a dry subtropical climate. The valley west of Angostura is known for producing a lot of wine among other things.

This is the station in Angostura. The city of Angostura is known primarily for its university, the largest in the country. It is also among the largest cities in Guaracay.

The city has grown largely due to its status as a suburb of Santa Leon, with office buildings that have risen along the city's main avenue connected to the highway. The area also has a lot of high-tech and manufacturing industries.

The city also has its own little old town area, with a cathedral too. The most iconic building is the original university structure. Behind it are several large buildings that consist of classrooms and student housing.

The commuter train goes farther even than Angostura, while eventually ending in the valley west of the city. Due to the limits in space in the area, much of the city sprawl has had to squeeze its way through the valleys of the mountains and towards the west, where the land is less rugged.

I don't know why but I think that it have an arabic flavour in it's architecture, perhaps the small houses and the buildings with a court inside.
Where did you get them? I mean the houses?

I took the time to look back on most of the entries in your CJ. Very impressive! You've captured the Latin-American city feel wonderfully. I love the immense details you've added, like the splotches of boulders near your train tracks and the bike path along the beach (where did you get that, anyways?). And that region shot is [i]beyond[/i] amazing!

I'm awed by your skill. I'll be waiting for more!

P.S. - Your Tropico 4 city is awesome, as well ;)
