aysk8er posted a City Journal entry in aysk8er's City JournalThe Northern Territory Expansion: As Adamskii Land experienced a booming economy from the recent expansion to agriculture, the need for raw materials increased. This demand for materials, along with the eagerness of the railroads to expand their grasp, led to the massive expansion into northern territory. Some typical scenes found in the Northern Territory. The land is known for meandering rivers and large forests. Lumber and hunting have become the largest industries with farming trying to find its place in the mountainous region. Scottie's Valley is currently the furthest out established town, a frontier type of place. Beyond this little town the river valley narrows and the mountains grow in height. A wild man's paradise full of lakes, animals, canyons and peace. Plattsburg City is the largest city within the Northern Territory. Plattsburg is known for colder temperatures, large trees and recreational actives. Many citizens spend time kayaking the rivers, boating on the bay to finding hidden coves or just riding bicycles around the friendly city. A train ride from Plattsburg to the mountains near Scottie's Valley is always recommended to tourists.

The local economies boomed and towns began to appear everywhere. Railroad was still the most convenient means of transportation/shipping for farming and ranching. Valleys with railways were the first to see towns which became shipping hubs for smaller sub-regions. Below are some typical scenes from the 1950's into the 1960's, known as "the early farming years" But finding plenty of water next to land and rail was not always easy. With the success of the nation's first dam the government began to look for more opportunities with water storage. The Zotes Valley is a long fertile valley with a river already in place. In the late summer the river becomes a stream and often fall harvest was early due to short water supply. The Pine Creek Dam took care of this problem controlling the release of Pine Creek into Zotes Valley. The railroad companies pushed their tracks further and further with goals of reaching the distant mountains. As towns grew lumber was in large demand which created a second booming industry. The first to reach the mountains with rails were the first to benefit. Timberline Valley was a small mountain valley within close reach of rail and thus became a major lumber source. The valley's weather was ideal for tree growth and lead to tree farming. The typical town during this time period had railway close to town to allow for passenger trains and shipping of goods. Some valley towns developed into small urban centers with shopping, churches, parks, and quiet neighborhoods. Below is an "typical" early farming year town. As the region enters the 1960's the shipment of goods becomes troublesome with roads and rails reaching high capacity levels. Some government engineers began to whisper about some crazy new idea of "freeways". The next city journal will be the region as in enters the 1970's.
