(First I wan't to ask, can anybody make a "Baltimore Railways" image for me? It would help alot since I don't know how to make that stuff.)


                                                       Sherwood to D.C.

The region of Baltimore has great ambitions, currently, it is Baltimore Railways, the only rail company in the Baltimore Region. Currently it has a plan to connect the town of Sherwood, (including a few other towns on the Sherwood Peninsula) to the United States capitol of Washington D.C.this would in-turn, create huge opritunities for Sherwood, and also Central Baltimore across the Bay.

Currently, the plans for the railway.

Red represents the main line,while yellow represents "spurs" to the naboring towns.

The rail line was voted to start in Sherwood. It has grown alot for such a short time, or perhapes it just "looks" like it grew alot, due to the fact that the city has to grow "around" the Sherwood State forest nerby.

Developers found the perfect spot to build the line, a small ridge that cuts through the town, probably caused by an earthquake thousands of years ago, that houses were never built on, because they had a steep grade. However, it did create a nice "natural park" through the town.

A spot for the station was also chosen, close to the pontoon so folks can esily get to Central Baltimore.

First the trees were cut down and a station was constructed.

Next a "path" for the rail was built and the station was completed.

Finaly the line was built,

Through the outer "suburbs" of town.

It curved around the farm to another road crossing in an outer suburb.

"Cut" through a small hill by the suburb.

Hopefully the railroad will make Sherwood and Baltimore develope even more!
