Shiloh City


Welcome back to Chora, and welcome to Shiloh. Shiloh is a known throughout Southern Chora for its unmatched shipping facilities, towering downtown, and sports parks. This blue collar city has excellent manufacturing jobs and is home to several high tech industries also. The people get around via Shiloh Rail, the S-Tram System, and SBS (Shiloh Bus System). The city is also home to Shiloh International Airport. 

I hope you all enjoy the images. Please allow a moment for the images to load. All pictures can be viewed in full resolution by simply opening the picture's web address in a new browser window.

We'll start it off with some quick shots. Box 1 shows how serious Shiloh takes freight. The city is a hub for rail freight and during the week, you can catch light train maintenance taking place in the industrial district. Box 2 shows some of Shiloh's upscale condos. These condos are alongside Elijah's river and offer a beautiful view of the Rogue Mountains just south of the city. Box 3 shows Brite Stadium. Brite, a company who specializes in light-bulb manufacturing, has its headquarters in downtown.

Here is an expanded shot of the above rail yard.

Here is a shot of some of Brite's warehouses and design facilities.

In box 1, you can see Brite's headquarters and the beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. Box 2 shows the rail maintenance building. This building services diesel engines, and various cars as well. Box 3 shows Shiloh University's main building. Other buildings in downtown serve as buildings for the University, but a majority of classes are held in this building.

And here is Shiloh's beautiful downtown:

Here is a close-up of a different area of downtown bordering the downtown tram loop. Shiloh Bible Church and a police substation are pictured here.

At the other end of the city, you can grab some popcorn and catch a game at Fishers' Park. This is a family park, and enjoyed by all ages. The park owes some of its success to its location as well (its along the city tram loop).

And finally, Shiloh in the making...

Good to see all German trains and waggons here :). I like the closeups of the city - even if you could have done something to break up the grid. But that is not importent for the closeups. Well done.

Thanks Retep! 

N_Wilson - While most of my cities are based on a grid design (like most cities), I do what I can to break up that grid or atleast bring life to it. I do that by using diagonal aves, tram-in-road and tram-in-ave, and taking sections out of the grid to make room for stadiums, etc. So while it keeps that grid design, its not completely a boxed look. Thanks for your feedback!

Wow I love this CJ! I have such a hard time making grid designed cities( I'm spatially challenged IRL)but this has inspired me to really try my best and give it another go. I also think I'm gonna toy around with trains in my cities now thanks to you.
