Redwood Island is a station and the only stopover on the Mom Express. It is located in the southeastern corner of the eponymous island, right next to Wau Holland Drive.

The station has only got a small building, but the station itself is quite tiny. The building is mostly made of redwood and features separate waiting rooms for first and second class.

Train services

Only the Mom Express stops at Redwood Island. Like the entire line, Redwood Island has only got one track from which the train departs in both directions. It is strongly recommended to pay attention to the sign on the station building that says which one of the other two stations lies in which direction, for if you want to travel to Mom Junction to catch an express, you may lose a lot of time if you accidentally take a train to Mom Station.

History

Redwood Island started out as a plain platform. Not only did it lack any signs or decoration, not to mention a station building, but the surrounding land was mostly at least two metres high, so it was almost impossible to leave the platform after getting off the train except for the very east towards the shore.

In early 2018, Buddler, probably the only halfway active inhabitant of the island, decided that this had to change. He requested building rights from Gabriel who owned the land surrounding the platform and literally built the station building into the small hill behind the platform, disregarding all warnings that Gabriel may have him build more station buildings. Buddler ended up also building Bamboo Beach, East Bend and Mirzakhani Street upon Gabriel's requests, also naming the former two as they had been nameless until then.

Reaching Redwood Island proved to be difficult at times. The Mom Express has a history of griefing and then remaining shut down for months. Whenever this happened, Redwood Island could only be reached by walking or biking on Wau Holland Drive all the way from the Spawn area or swimming or sailing from Mom Junction.
