Here a LRV pair speeds towards the edge of the suburbs.

Another LRV pulls out to transport another batch of commuters off to the sterile office buildings of the Financial District.

In a city that never stands still, another train coasts into the beautiful Victorian Jamaica Plain station.

A rare moment of peace at Diamond Zebra.fairbanksdec27166129064.png

Finally, the B32 slows for a stop sign in the Industrial Quarter.

Even through the rain, the trains do not stop.

You have a very nice transportation system, however, the GLR in the first and second pictures as well as the heavy rail in the fifth pictures are WAY too close to the residential areas. I wouldn't want to have my house start shaking every time a train goes bye 

Besides that though, it looks nice!

k50dude: You would be surprised how many tracks run right by houses in places. Right down the street from me is a commuter train that runs directly through a neighborhood and right behind the local taco bell

@K50dude I'll try to improving spacings as I expand my LRT network. Thanks for the advice.

@Adrianor  Good adivce! My 5th 800x600 pixels in all its glory.

@the00guvna Thanks!

@spursrule14 Thanks!

@Higu Often, I've found that a lot of light rail systems built upon old freight lines are pretty tight with the housing. Usually developers and residents try to push back the right of way without inspiring the wrath of the railroad, which usually never comes unless its fairly active. In this case, the line was more or less dead by the sixties, only reawakened after forty years of slowly encroaching suburbia.
