The Great Second Life Railway was started when there were not a lot of regions in Second Life. A few abortive attempts at creating a railway line eventually led to our first station in Slate; at the time the adjacent region of Olive was a sandbox.
The GSLR charter reads: "To create, support, maintain and operate the GSLR, its right of way, structures, equipment, scripts, etc. The GSLR is based on railway practices circa 1890-1930."
At the moment Athos Murphy, Perpetual Valkyrie, Jopsy Pendragon and Trent Silverman provide the land tier to support the right of way.
Currently Kitto Flora's trolley is running on a regular schedule along the whole line. And the drawbridge in Periwinkle has been locked down till further notice. We'd like to expand to the west, but the Crimson and Chartreuse regions are very stable and un-train-ey. Back when the railway switches still worked, we had plans for running a multi-car train (the steam locomotive and British carriages). Someday they will run again!
Other Railway initiatives
There are several other standard gage railroads in SL, some on private land, some on Linden land. This is list of some other examples of large multi sim networks with different sets of guidance, control and track system. The different systems are not necessarily compatible with SLRR standards.
