The original build

This station, built in late 1.7 in the style of early 1.5, is the connection of the Freedonia Railway System and the private Red and Blue Line of the Acacia Glade. The original plan was to build the FRS straight on through the forrest, but because this is a very expensive and time-consuming project LewisD95 started negotiations with Mystila, the owner of both the Red and Blue Line. The southern part of the Freedonia Railway Station, between the Acacia Roads and the Borderland with final destination at New Louisville, is now planned to go parallel to the Red Line, via the Acacia Glade Station, and will join the FRS near Fortress al Drake. When negotiations are started, the connection will be provided at the Acacia Road International Station, close to the southern part of the FRS.

The railway connection to New Louisville and beyond will be provided by AggrievedCanine and LewisD95. Work on this line started in August 2016 and is planned to be completed in November-December 2016. This connection will be called "FRS South", and is built from stone and wood. To provide steel for the rails, some private iron farms were opened, these are as yet unavailable for public use.

Revamp of the FRS Line (South)

In August 2018, a plan to redesign or rework the Freedonia Railway System came to the mind of some dedicated Moderators of the server. This caused LewisD95, one of those dedicated Moderators, to start revamping his station to a more modern, and more suiting build for this station. The new theme, in stead of the somewhat dark and oppressive design, shall be light, modern and open, inspired by the Belgian train stations of Leuven, Liege and Ghent. During the works on the station, the build will not be accessible, although it will be possible to use the command /st AcaciaSouth to get here. This is not recommended, since you can get a lot of fall damage during construction.

When the station is finished, works will start to revamp the rails south from the station, allowing traffic to pass over a height of 128. This to prevent grief by the newest players, and to have a great view over the south of the map. It is also possible that the Red and Cyan lines from Mystila will be added, with a direct sorting option, to the Freedonia Railway System. But at this moment, this is just an idea.

Future Plans

A direct connection to the FRS mainline is planned, going over the woods of New Jericho and Pallet Town, eventually connecting at Rustgrove City. This will be done to prevent players to have to make an enormous detour via Acacia Roads International. The connection to Acacia Glade and Acacia Roads International and all stations in between will be maintained in both directions. Eventually, in an attempt to reactivate the rails, the line might be pulled through, directly to the Nexus South 3 hub, but currently, there are no plans for this.
