Heyho and welcome to the thirtysixth entry of my CJ Dragon Islands.

Sorry, Again that my updates got so rare at the last time but modding CXL and haveing some tests in school made it not very easy to find some time to play SC4.

We are at Shì Luna Rail station right now....

1

Today we are going to follow a train along it's 1:30 hrs ride from Shì Lùna to shì Shuixi. The vehicle is owned by Hydra rail Corp(HR) their colours are wite and blue.

But they've provided something more special for our ride than their usual 1435mm gauge version of E257 series. They even took out of their museum. A Skinkansen 0 series train.

And now we are on board, riding through the city... I know, you already know this motive but I just like it...

The train heads out of the city, first part of our route is the same as we already took with a TDR E321 a couple of updates ago... nevertheless some nice motives can be found along the tracks....

3

There are two tunnels along the first kilometers of the route, that was the first one...

4

Some might remember this bridge :D

5

And the second tunnel...

6

Heading along the coast...

7

That's the first part of the "Long bridge" it conects the dragon Island with a smaller isle to the southwest. This bridge survived the independence war, the other part had to be replaced because of huge bomb destruction.

The train passes a small island, another peacheful island without inhabitants.

9

The second part of the long bridge.

10

Now the tracks lead through the industrial area of the city Lòng Quiao, the city center can be found to the south on the other side of this mountain, the main line does not go there.

11

Freight and passenger rail station "Lòng quiao" The spechial train does not stop here, it would be too long anyways.

12

Now we pass Crystal Bridge.

13

Another tunnel, another city boarder(already crossed 4 of them) and the train rides over this overpass. The road below is part of the highway A3, but not the main highway, the connection to Shì zài lòng yán.

14

And now HR main line unites itself with Shuixi rapid transit line 1(to the city named aboth)

15

598867623raqs.jpg

Another city boarder, straight here, otherwhise we would run along West Dragon Islands rail.

16

Traffic on the A3 is very low at the moment, too less cities buildt along it right now...

17

Wonderful update as ever, if only there was some way of recognising your achievement here, maybe some kind of award

I'd never get tired of riding in your trains... What a variety of landscapes, what a nice rural planning! And today we've seen cargo areas, as nice as your passenger rail...

Weee! That was nice, although I have to comment on the 11th picture, there is too much maxis there compared to what else you do. Besides that though, great entry. The natural landscapes were gorgeous!

Gah, it's been too long.  Still coming off my post-vacation vertigo...  :P

It's always a pleasure to visit here.  Your city building skills and pictures are as amazing as ever and I do enjoy your shinkansen.  I used to ride them in Japan rather often and I miss it so much!
