Arse Train Lines (ATL) are the train lines run by ARSE7. They serve Silver Coast and the surrounding areas of Ocean City, Crossroads, and Colored Grasses, with long-distance trains to Origin and planned to Personhood West. Most of the newer lines are built by nanepiwo with interlocking by ywang and nanepiwo

Current Services

ATL Gold Line
ATL Mithril Line
ATL Zinc Line
ATL/CRT Bronze Line, run jointly with Crossroads Transport

Operation

The lines are mostly double-tracked, but single-tracked near and in terminal stations. Gold line uses a subway wagon marked line 1. Some call this train a shittle. Zinc Line uses Japanese trains

History

In March 2019, Arse built a line between Naverbuild and the edge of a cliff (later Ocean City). The train had only one track and stopped at Mushroom Land. This was also known as ARSE7 Line 1. As the city grew, another express line was built next to ARSE7 Line 1. This was known as the Ocean City Express. After Ocean City became inactive, tracks for Ocean City Express wad extended to Silver Coast. The tracks were later used by Silver Line.

On 17 April 2019, nanepiwo decided it was a good idea to extend the track to Ehlodex. So, a tunnel was built to there. In addition, nanepiwo placed ATC tracks on the rails throughout the ATL network, creating the following services:

  • ARSE7 Line 1 (now Gold Line) - Neverbuild > Mushroom Land > Ocean City
  • Ocean City Express (later known as Silver Line) - Neverbuild > Ocean City > Silver Coast > Ehlodex

Later, Silver Line was modified to use only the Ocean City - Ehlodex tracks, freeing the Ocean City - Neverbuild track, which was later used by Gold Line.

With the construction of Crossroads, ywang asked if ARSE7 would build a train line to Crossroads. The request was accepted, and the Mithril Line was built.

On 04 May 2019, nanepiwo extended the Mithril line tracks to connect them to Silver Line. A new underground Silver Coast station closer to the city hall was built, and the line extended to Ehlodex. Smacker did the interlocking.

On 05 May 2019, nanepiwo and ARSE7 built another exit to this station on its west side. It now has a tunnel to Shopping Center and access to the elevator to the glider jump area.

Discussion for the proposed Zinc Line began on 12 May 2019. Plans originally called for a southern terminus at pseudonyme's shop. However, the line will instead go to the Berton Street Station. Tunnels for the line were completed on 26 May 2019, which was later shared with Bronze Line.

On 19 May 2019, Silver Line was rerouted between Silver Coast and Ocean City to follow the landscape. Trip times are now shorter as well. This was built in conjunction with the first phase of the Bronze Line. The stone tile floating bridge was largely demolished, freeing up the skies of Ocean City.

At the end of May 2019, Silver Line was discontinued and its bridge entirely demolished. Service to Ocean City now uses Zinc Line, which uses a dual-bore tunnel under Silver Coast Bay and the new trackbed north of it. ARSE7 built a new station at Ocean City, with platforms long enough to house Zinc Line trains. Zinc Line was put into operation along with Bronze Line except the West Mountains - Crossroads City Hall section.

On 7 June 2019, the West Mountains - Crossroads City Hall section has been completed and interlocked.

On 8 June 2019, the track to Personhood West was completed with help from Smacker and Och_Noe. The Bronze Line now stops at track 7 in the station. It was the first train to begin operation to there that was not part of Hume Line.
