State of the existing system

Overall the FRS seems to have suffered a rather severe level of neglect, perhaps understandable considering the popularity and prevalence of fast travel. The existing rail sections should be brought up to spec (e.g. adding station announcements for all branch lines). There are some branch lines that are single-tracked, abandoned or disconnected altogether which need to be dealt with. gricer1326 04:58, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

New Expansion

From what can be seen on the map, the Oriental Line hasn't seen an extension from the original map border, a problem considering there's a ton of ground yet to cover there. Likewise for the Great Northern Line. The Occidental Line is currently growing west towards Frostagon and should eventually reach the current world border. gricer1326 04:58, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

I'm laying rails from New Haven to the Oriental Borderlands station, once that's complete there are opportunities for branches to e.g. Waterboy0048 Mining Co.. 14mRh4X0r 18:49, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Considering the new areas served by the Occidental Line are quite built up in perpendicular directions, there has been proposed a connecting service from New Dublin to the Acacia Roads area, with more to follow. gricer1326 04:58, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Making this an extension of the line from Mini-Avalon/New Dublin. Mystilaa should have the rest covered. gricer1326 23:39, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

I have been patching up bits of the network, so now the path to WestWood is complete, although it still needs a rail connection. I am also putting in some green wool. Weirdly, around spawn there is lime green wool in the occidental, which there should not be, so at some point I may go back changing all of that to proper green too. From now on make sure everyone uses normal green not lime. Thesprazzler 12:18, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

In what can only be seen as a fantastic use of time, I have changed the wool all the way up to here, and am continuing on down the line. Thesprazzler 13:27, 9 April 2016 (UTC)


Wiki Page

The wiki page could be improved to have a complete list of destinations and locations like Boat Routes and Nexus do. Anna 28 07:08, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Started on this, feel free to add to it if you can. Anna 28 05:26, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Schloz, what happened to a bunch of the branches and locations? And the format it was in before? Anna 28 21:14, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Note for the /st station the capitalization used is what is on the [sort] signs that use it. Anna 28 03:31, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Capitalisation in /St commands don't matter, we've tried it and it's more useful to the player in order for memorisation and recognition. I took your list for the Occidental line Anna (as that was all that had been done) and improved upon it, as just saying there's a 'cactus' line from forestberg gives no useful information to the new player. I've added destinations to these named lines and me and spraz have worked through complex stations like forbiddenoutpost and lavatown in order to work these different systems, so nothing has been ommitted. Theschlozmeister 09:23, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
The Cactus and such branches are explained in more detail in the branches section, with locations it goes to. And the reason I used what was on the sort signs is that I hoped that is what the person who wanted/made the link wanted it to be. Anna 28 09:31, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Could make the station it's own wiki page. Currently this page has a link to Grand Freedonia Railway Station which just redirects to itself. Anna 28 05:26, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Railway names

Could rename lines considering the Oriental, Occidental and Northern lines run north, south and west after the MC 1.0 update. gricer1326 07:42, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Might be a lot of signs. I'm still finding nexus and road signs with outdated information on them. But it would make sense to change them especially since the auto translator translates them. Anna 28 10:48, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Would we make new names for these or just change them around? New names might work well and still have it written down that it used to be called <oldname>. That could avoid confusion. Anna 28 21:38, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
As suggested by schloz: we could keep the names as they are and have it as an easter egg. Though could still confuse some players, but so could changing them. Anna 28 09:31, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
The Great White Northern line could instead just be the Great White Line. Anna 28 09:37, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Stop System

I, having connected Dragon's Hold, went to add a stop for Ravenstown, however I realised to get here one must /st Autumnwood in order to take the right turn. I am unsure what the best method would be to allow users to travel to stop such as this, for example if we should have two sorting stations so both /st options are catered for?

I just put a [Delay] stop in for the moment, so better than before but still not ideal. Thesprazzler 09:47, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

After looking at the StromIsle connection, which has multiple sub stations, that appears to use multiple sort blocks each with a rail to the right, allowing for multiple stations all leading to the same branch. This however does not work whilst returning backwards down the rail, but frankly seems like quite a good solution, so I shall update the Ravenstown connection to the same standard when next possible. Thesprazzler 09:57, 11 April 2016 (UTC)


Being the G that I am, I've made Quarryton a station. It's fully function (could do with some cart restocking) but looks like a pile of crap.

If someone wants to make it look nice that'd be great.

(It's right next to the warp point).

Thesprazzler 11:39, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

It also needs ticket dispensers, which just need to be paper for spawn and anything back towards map centre, and then if you don't have paper you automatically get sorted further West. Thesprazzler 11:44, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Stations to Connect

Docville could definitely be connected quite easily here, and if that is being connected it seems wise to also connected to the nexus located here.

If someone makes the majority of the rails I'd be happy to sort out the sorters.

Thesprazzler 17:39, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

I also just connected Game City here, although it's even more primitive. Would be great if someone built it a station. I can do the rail work inside the station if needed.

Repair or Remove

I am new on this server so i either bring fresh eyes or am uninformed .. that said, sorry guys but the rail system needs heavy investment to recover it to useable condition OR it should be torn down as a danger to its passenger. My first ride I passed a whole lot of broken track in the return rail on my way to being dumped into the middle of a switching mechanism that trapped me. I had to do /home to get out without griefing. I support the repair option because it is SOOO COOL, but if our resources can't be stretched so far we should put do enough work to lock users out of the network. --bytebasher 20:59, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm sure all of us would be happy to help in the repair - perhaps if you could start listing co'ordinates that need attention on this page that would be a good start for where we can help. Thesprazzler 21:31, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Or you could /greport it Anna 28 02:37, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
