John Horton Conway Street (often omitting the John and/or Horton) is a subway station on the Spawn Subway network, served by Lines 4 and 5. It is named after a famous British mathematician, most known for creating the Game of Life cellular automaton.
The stations construction is eclectic garbage, reflecting the surrounding landscape. Stone tile, red path wood, acacia wood, dry dirt, wool for platforms and healing wood fences are all used in its construction. The clearance between the two platforms is minimum height. The station does at least have a network map and good platform indication.
The station is located on the Mountain Ring Road and adjacent Parliament. The nearby terrain has been subject to a lot of griefing, some of which has been protected, other areas being de-facto protected now by the track_builder privilege.
The station was once called, or proposed to be called, Farms South. This is speculated from the area name and the station code. It is not known if there were any farms in the area at the time, but there are certainly none now, unless one counts the backyard of Casa de luli with its orange, palm and banana trees.
The area on the west of the station has contained cobbleboxes of cobble, dirt and stone tile; it has been griefed extensively and some of it was protected by Och_Noe. There are a series of shittle tracks that go nowhere. The whole area could do with a good clean up and redevelopment.
