Huge Download list is coming after U-Build-It Special Edition (UBISE?)

I decided that we are heading back to Invernessen after spending the rest of the day in Daloa. We'll book a hotel, then leave for home the next day.

After lunch, we walk to the other side of the university to take the Green Line tram. During off-peak hours, the green line runs some replica green car trams from the old green car system. The reason green cars don't exist on the Red/Yellow line is that they can't reach the required speed for the track in the median of the E30.

The track dips under the E30, then emerges right before the Midtown Station.

Midtown Station. The Green and planned Blue line use the northern tracks, while the southern tracks are used by the Red and Yellow line.

The next station after Midtown is City Hall. It's not an important station for commuters, but important events have happened at City Hall.

Today, City hall is a museum, with government functions moved to the building to the west.

But back in the 1890's, war happened. Once woodb3kmaster and I make more pictures, I can tell the story better.

During the late 1880's, King Tristan of Lower Columbia invaded Puget Sound, Vancouver Island and the city of Vancouver. In 1892, a purification campaign in the new land forced liberals to leave and find a new home. Some of the refugees fled to Illu'a, spreading stories of the horrors of leaving their homes. This caused he Illu'a government to declare war on Lower Columbia in 1895. The intent of the war was to reclaim the land that King Tristan invaded for the refugees.

At first, Illu'a set up a blockade around Lower Columbia, to stop trade during the war. At the same time, spies in Lower Columbian cities worked with resistance fighters to cause havoc within the borders.

After that, a planned invasion of Puget Sound by Illu'a started. They succeeded in capturing land, but were forced back to Illu'a by the Royal Army.

In response to the invasion, Lower Columbia organized an invasion of Illu'a. While crossing the Adraman Channel to Illu'a, many of the ships were sunken or damaged by the Illu'a Navy.

After three years of war, King Tristan and Illu'a President Henry Edwards signed the Treaty of Daloa, at Daloa City Hall. The treaty included that Lower Columbia can never engage in another campaign like the Purifications.

For anybody that wants to know the history after the Treaty, here's a link.

Once we toured City Hall, we walked around the Governor's Office. Entry into the office is restricted.

Before I give you more history in the next update, here's how Downtown Daloa looks like at night.
