Trans-Ulethan Railway

Posted by Stara Zagora on 9 January 2018 in English (English)

Hi all,

When I was considering developing my country's rail transport, I began to think about more connections in the surrounding region (Southeastern Uletha), and eventually I started thinking about an expansive transcontinental railway. I feel like this would be a pretty interesting idea, but if we ever got it to work there would need to be a lot of coordination.

I don't really think this would be too crazy, especially given the scale of some existing railway systems on the map. So if anyone in central/eastern Uletha would be willing to consider this project, please tell me.

Thanks, Stara Zagora

From what I recall from past discussions, the biggest issue is coordination. Large scale projects like transcontinental railways and highway systems become unrealistic and the scope quickly gets out of hand. There's also the fact that there are almost always several nations that are either ownerless and can't be modified or that aren't on board with the plan because it differs from their own goals.

The best way to achieve something like this would probably be just to coordinate with your neighbors about connecting to each other. Maybe eventually if enough people do that it will grow out organically to eventually be transcontinental (i feel like the similar systems in real life started similarly). But it probably wouldn't work to try to master plan something like that.

I think you can read one of my diary entries concerning this issue.
