Crossing The River (Let There Be Rail - part 2)

Crossing The River

Today, we take a look at the remaining stations on the network... Whitefall River, Stowe, Islington Road, Londonderry, Hezlett, Withers Park and Ashford. Most pictures are taken within the Whitefall River tile.

Whitefall River & Hezlett

Whitefall River is a major station, and also is quite busy, as it services the entire northern part of the river. Located on the edge of town, away from any major commercial centre, Whitefall River perhaps doesn't get as much patronage as it is expected to, however this will change once the northern part becomes more developed.

Hezlett station services the southern part of the Whitefall River tile. It is the first station on the Hezlett line, branching off the main line heading into Ashford. Hezlett Station is probably one of the least-used stations on the line due to its relatively poor location compared to the rest of the stations.










Stowe is a busy station located in the heart of Whitefall River's main industrial area. Stowe, at one point, was the last station on the main River line, however the Stowe-Whitefall River-Woodcroft Rd stations form the backbone of the system, providing freight with a means to leave the region.




Islington Road

Islington Road is located on the northern approaches of the bridge crossing Whitefall River. This station is important as it will later provide an interchange station for people who wish to head east or west along the Whitefall River from the south.




Londonderry Station is located on the southern approaches of the same bridge mentioned above. Right now, it is undergoing an overhaul to bring it to a similar standard as to what's on the rest of the network, so no pictures are available right now. However, it is the last station before the line splits up to head towards Hezlett and Ashford.

Withers Park

Withers Park is the last station for the moment on the Hezlett spur line. Servicing the industrial park surrounding it, Withers Park is expected to pick up additional patronage when the Londonderry works are completed later in 1970.



Ashford is the last station that we will be visiting. Located right in the heart of town, next to a Buffalo Grill [apparently also quite popular, seeing as there is two in the entire town], Ashford is a relatively large town developing south of Whitefall River. The station, unfortunately, is not particularly well-used due to a lack of a bus system currently available in Ashford. This may change in the future as Ashford expands...



And to 1971...

Next year, many new road projects have come online, particularly with the construction of a number of new roads, as well as the infrastructure upgrade of a very congested road in the northern parts of Whitefall. As for the rail system... nobody knows what is planned... perhaps an expansion to St Albans, in the region's far west?

Wow Daniel, I just stumbled on your CJ (Shame on me lol)
Might I just say this about your CJ so far: Awesome Awesome Awesome.
I just love the suburbs, and the rail network seems very well laid out.

I love the rail stations you use daniel.. and even some cool
names I see you have for them, very cool indeed.. What i especially
like though is your sprawling light suburbs.. very large areas of light housing
and quite creative in the way you laid out your street and roads networks..
Please keep up the fantastic work your doing with this region,

thanks, Brian
