This railway exists in Austria Microcontinent. Its name is not official, it was given by the Second Life Geography team.

Tracks

The railway is not as wide as a classic Heterocera raiilway, it is about half as wide and has a different texture. There is not the same texture along the entire railway, there are minimum 5 different rail textures. Very important is that in the urban part of the microcontinent, the rail becomes a real subway, with a few stations.

Coverage

The railway goes through 10 sims of 17, how many the microcontinent has, so it has a large coverage. Stations are frequent in East, but rare in West. The rail has a large central station in MBK Bahnofsviertel. From there, 3 branches are visible to South, West and East. The Eastern branch is the urban one and soon after passing through Goethe sim, it enters a tunnel and becomes a one-way subway. The Western brench goes through a plain, near a road and finally ends in a depot. The South brench offers great landscapes. It follows a river, then enters a sharp valley in the snowlands and ends at a local station.

Transportation

It looks like a classic VRC train can use this railway. The switches use a different system, they are automated and have a multitude of light signals. Automated Transportation is present. There are some very fast moving trains, with a modern design, usually blue colored. Before entering a station, they move very slow.
