The 3 Line runs completely automated and thus does not have any staff (only those in case of emergency)

As in the stations are unstaffed as well as the trains? Is 3 above or below ground?

----------------------------------------

And now for another station guide.

 

Ridgewood Street Terminus

Location: 6250 Ridgewood Street, Borough of Grierton, Nu'u-Sara, Ai'a'ivea. Secondary entrance at 6255 Ridegwood Street, on the other side of the road.

Depth: 

Origin of Name: It's a terminus for streetcars and a "sub-garage" for both streetcars (lower levels) and buses (surface)

Operator: LePasi

Service: LePasi Streetcar (routes 112, 167, and E35), Meadowlands Country (route ME60, rush hour only), Kiribus (route K9, limited service)

Staffed: Yes, ticket agent (two during rush hours)

Gates: None

Fare Zone: LePasi (note that any Fe'e-Octopus card valid for any of the AOS/SaraLink zones in Nu'u-Sara is accepted here)

Transfers: Served by buses on Ridgewood Street, including 166,* 166a*, 256, P111 and 111 (LePasi), as well as ME11 (Meadowlands Country), and two runs a day of the S40 (Swan Lake Transit)

*166 only runs onto Ridgewood Street early mornings, evenings after rush hours, and weekend afternoons. 166a only runs on school days, and is for students.

Stores/Services: Convenience store on mezzanine, vending machines ("Automat") and small café in main building on surface. 

General layout: Main building has café and Automat available to customers, as well as stairs and elevators downwards. Mezzanine level is mostly "catwalk" style, with "bridges" connecting the elevators and stairs from the main building, the stairs from the secondary building, the ticket booths, the convenience store, and the elevators and escalators to the track level. From the mezzanine, a fenced off area is visible that is the lower garage for buses. There are elevated tracks running along the walls that are not used in service, but connect to a storage area for streetcars. The track level has ten tracks, but only five of them are in normal passenger service. There are crossing points between the platforms. Lights indicate whether safe to cross or not.

Elevators and escalators: two elevators between surface and mezzanine, four elevators between mezzanine and track level, four escalators (up only) from track level to the mezzanine.

Tracks: Twelve visible, only five in normal passenger service. Electrified by 900 volts DC catenary.

Art: "Inverted Forest", art installation hanging from the ceiling of the underground section, resembles an upside-down forest. "Streetlamps for Streetcars", twelve "Westmount-style" streetlamps. There are two by each exit, always on. There are also two by the access points to each platform, that light up to indicate a scheduled streetcar.

Opened: 2025

Fun facts:

-There are proposals to have an underground road on the Mezzanine level "assume" the bus stops for Ridgewood Circle (the end of Ridgewood Street), but concerns about cost/benefit ratio are making this unlikely at best

-The main building looks like it belongs to one of the neighborhood mansions. It was intended to be a helicopter hangar, but the presence of nearby sensitive ecological areas, and petitions from other residents on the same street, meant that no helicopters would be allowed in regular usage, so it was sold to LePasi.

-The Meadowlands Country, Kiribus, and Swan Lake routes are run for the benfit of storing the buses and streetcars overnight.

-This is one of a handful of stations to have LePasi ticket sellers, as most places with underground streetcar tracks or bus routes are connected to a subway or rail station, and the rail operator normally provides the staff. Due to the Underground Railway Safety Act, any station with service at a depth greater than 10 metres below street level (defined from where the lowest entrance is) is required to be staffed. However, at this station, cash fares can be paid to the driver (except for the "E" routes)

- On holidays, specially decorated streetcars may be parked on the tracks not in passenger usage.

Trains are unstaffed. Stations are mostly unstaffed, except for about 3-5 staff at each station for general cleaners and maintenance.

The 3 line is all underground, including the train depot.

So kinda making my own transit system through Cities Skylines. Building London right now and have been playing around with mods and such. Made an LTC XD40 and 60. Also did a Badder bus J4500 in their regular scheme. Might try to do the London Knights scheme next

LincTrans Updates
As of April 19, 2020.

As said, LincTrans is practicing social distancing and rear door boarding. Thus meaning more articulated buses for busy Downtown routes during rush hour. So apparently, I set an order for 20 more XDE60s (3151-3171)

Cummins L9 8.9L 330hp/ BAe Systems HybriDrive HDS-330 Series-ER.

On top of that fact, the Brown Line expansion is nearly complete, while the plan to expand the Windsor Street LRT north of Yorkmeadow Road has been cancelled.

NEWMAN TRANSIT NEWS
MAY 3, 2020

 

Effective May 4, 2020, the government of Yorkland will be restoring society in a significant way following its shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak.

 

The country saw the signs early and took steps to prevent a full-scale crisis from breaking out. In the end, their efforts appear to have resulted in effectively being able to contain the virus, as widespread testing (over 100,000 every day for the last month) has only found 2440 cases to date, with no new cases reported since April 17. Though originally the plan was to begin reopening the country in stages, the complete lack of news cases for more than two weeks has been taken as a positive indication, and the bulk of the country will be reopening at once.

Borders will remain closed to foreigners, and will progressively reopen to specific countries only as the virus' spread is brought under control. Any visitors or nationals coming from foreign lands will be subjected to mandatory testing, and will be quarantined if they test positive for the virus.

Newman Transit will be restoring regular service on all routes starting on this date. A few changes will continue to be in effect, even after regular life has been restored back to normal:

-wearing a mask or other face covering will be mandatory

-wherever possible, the front door area will continue to be barricaded off

-all request stops will continue to be serviced by all vehicles at all times

-all doors will open at all stops, and all vehicles will be disinfected upon arrival at the yard

During quarantine, before I started going to work, I found I had a decent amount of time to update my map of Yorkland. So here it is, one of the biggest upgrades I've made to it so far.

Something else I wanted to have ready by this point is a document briefly outlining the key features, facts, and figures of the country, but this is to be shelved indefinitely. In the interim, here is the newest export:

The area of the country is (presently) 252,852.9389 sq km, making it the 77th largest country in the world. It's a unitary republic with a population of about 38 million, give or take. Feedback appreciated!

SMRT

Our subway network comprises of 11 subway lines, 4 commuter lines, and 3 regional lines (1 subway line under construction, 1 commuter line under construction). So how do we manage so many trains on our lines?

Sunnyshore Subway System (S3)

  • Central Line (A): This line was opened with traditional signalling but was replaced with Communications-Based Train Control or CBTC in 2016. The line operates as a Grade of Automation 2 (GoA2), where an operator handles door operations and manages driving when turning around, along with taking over emergency situations. Platform Screen Doors were installed to prevent unauthorized access on the tracks. Signals are usually on board the trains, but the existing signals are still installed for older trains without CBTC. A blue light at the end of each platform notifies drivers when the train will automatically depart (a 10 second delay usually).
  • South Beach Line (B): This line opened with traditional signalling but was upgraded to CBTC in 2016. CBTC became active in 2019. Like the Central line, this line operates as a GoA2 system (operators handle doors and may drive if needed or incase of emergencies). Platform doors (both full and half height) were also installed. Signals are usually on board the trains, but the existing signals are still installed for older trains without CBTC. A blue light at the end of each platform notifies drivers when the train will automatically depart (a 10 second delay usually).
  • North Central Line (C): This line opened with traditional signalling which remains active. Automatic Train Protection (ATP) was installed in 1976 while Automatic Train Control (ATC) was installed in 2016. ATC controls the train's speed via signalling, notifying drivers of changes in speed and warnings.
  • Millennium Line (D): This line opened with traditional signalling and ATP, which both remain active. ATC was installed in 2017. ATC controls the train's speed via signalling, notifying drivers of changes in speed and warnings.
  • Union Line (E): This line opened with traditional signalling but was upgraded to CBTC in 2019, with CBTC becoming active that same year. Like the Central line, this line operates as a GoA2 system (operators handle doors and may drive if needed or incase of emergencies). Platform doors (both full and half height) were also installed. Signals are usually on board the trains, but the existing signals are still installed for older trains without CBTC. A blue light at the end of each platform notifies drivers when the train will automatically depart (a 10 second delay usually).
  • Capital Line (F): This line opened with traditional signalling and ATP, which both remain active. ATC was installed in 2017. ATC controls the train's speed via signalling, notifying drivers of changes in speed and warnings.
  • Bronx Line (G): This line opened with traditional signalling and ATP, which both remain active. ATC was installed in 2017. ATC controls the train's speed via signalling, notifying drivers of changes in speed and warnings.
  • Airport Rapid Line (SR): This line opened with automatic train operation (ATO) which remains active. This line operates as a GoA4 system, with full unattended train operation that handles emergencies without staff assistance. Platform screen doors were also installed.
  • Paddington Line (H): This line is still in planning.

Sunnyshore Subway Network (SSN)

  • Maxwell Line (1): This line opened with traditional signalling which remains active. Automatic Train Stop (ATS) was installed in 2008, allowing for sudden stops if the system encounters an issue. There are future plans to install CBTC on this line, but it is not fully confirmed as of yet.
  • West Line (2): This line opened with traditional signalling and ATC which both remain active. ATC controls the train's speed via signalling, notifying drivers of changes in speed and warnings. There are future plans to install CBTC on this line.
  • Tynamo Line (3): This line opened with automatic train operation (ATO) which remains active. This line operates as a GoA4 system, with full unattended train operation that handles emergencies without staff assistance.
  • Elizabeth Line (4): This line is under construction and will feature CBTC and Platform screen doors once it opens.

Commuter Rail Service - Commuter Rail Network(CRS-CRN)

  • All lines were built with traditional signalling. ATS was installed in 1996 (C1), 1997 (C2) and 2004 (C4). ATS was already installed on the C3 line when it first opened.

Outer Rail

  • All of the outer rail lines will receive ATC sometime in the future.
