Today we are going to look at Whiting City and the Southern National Port of Paradise.

Whiting City is not the biggest of cities. I won't tell you its population, as I'm not quite sure myself currently :P

The city proper is separated from the rest of itself by the Paradise River on the west side and I-10 on the east and south sides. Here we see I-10 passing over Market St., which was just converted into a one-way street southbound.

and I-10 passing over Center St (north to south) which is the new route for northbound travelers from Market St.

The town is accessible by rail, as the South Shore Line, Johnson-Whiting Line, Braun-Whiting Line and Jackson-Wabash Line all stop through or terminate at Southside Station, the city's main station, which is surprisingly far from downtown. The original builders of the station, the South Shore Company, who coincidentally owned the South Shore Line before the government nationalized the rail lines, wouldn't build the station downtown because it was too 'out of the way' of their planned lines. Thus for now, buses connect station passengers to downtown for free.

Some houses by the station.

The station.

As a result of the grade from the bridge crossing the Paradise River, a rail loop had to be made, isolating this little neighborhood from the rest of the city.

Quiet scene by Richway Park, to the east of downtown.

The east side and west side of Whiting City is connected by the Oliver Willson Bridge, named after some guy who did something important.

South of the city is the province's pride and joy- the Paradise Bay Bridge, which carries I-5 and I-10.

and the interchange that feeds into Whiting City and the Paradise Bay Bridge. I-5 goes west to south, I-10 goes west to north.

Rt 810 heads east.

I-5 divides the resdiential area from the port industrial area, and the shopping center, which some developer saw fit to put in an industrial area.

The train station is far from the port, but this was intentional. Who wants to get off at a port? Buses carry workers to their jobs at the national port.

It looks nice, but I can't help it that it looks too bare. Fill it up with something, MMP, warehouses, etc.

Evillions: filling in th bare spots was never my strong point. Either I don't know what to put there, or I'm too lazy to put trees there

Blakeway: Thank you

Markus J: It felt that way to me too XD

MamaLuigi945: Thanks
