ATL Gold Line is a service of the ATL network that runs from Neverbuild Central to Ocean City. The line is currently served by 8 trains.

History

The line was originally constructed by ARSE7 with only three stations: Neverbuild (now Neverbuild Old Terminus), Mushroom Land, and Ocean. The line was served by a train with two subway wagons, and it had only one track. It was known as "Neverbuild Line 1".

Shortly after the line was constructed, Ocean City was founded. The south terminus was therefore renamed to Ocean City.

A few days later, another parallel line was built, known as Ocean City Express. The new line was served by a shuttle with two Japanese engines and did not stop at Mushroom Land Station. Therefore, both lines were separated.

After Arse Train Lines was founded, the two tracks were connected at both termini, and the line itself was renamed to ATL Gold Line. The Japanese train was moved to run on ATL Silver Line.

In mid-October 2019 the line has undergone significant modifications: a new tunnel segment was added to bring the line to a new terminus under Neverbuild Central railway station, making a new interchange station, and the line itself — Neverbuild's proper subway. Old terminus was rebuilt into a through station with middle platform. Mushroom land was updated, and two more stations were constructed between that station and Ocean City. A timing system was used in Neverbuild Central to make sure that the trains depart at a specific interval. After some testing, the interval of 2 minutes was used. A few days later, the interval was reduced to 100 seconds, 90 seconds and later 60 seconds, as more trains were added.

On October 31, ⚖️ Ywang applied the timing system to all the stations on the line, making it possible to create a timetable for each station.

In early 2020, the line was converted to on-demand service.

Further extensions are not planned yet because ATL Zinc Line serves the area south of Ocean City, and a depot is located at the north of the terminus, making it impossible to extend the line northward.
