Weekly Word #9

Posted by ilikemaps on 7 August 2017 in English (English)

Hello everyone

I would like to thank oscar2002 for the opportunity to do this

So this week's word is

RAIL

This could include anything related to railways, for example, stations, rails, or any other related infrastructure.

For example

Waterloo Station

Pinjarra Refinery with associated railway

Depot

Or even trams

Deadline is Midday Saturday 12th Aug, Australian Central Standard Time (GMT+9:30)

So this is probably still Friday for people in the Americas

Thanks

I'd say this challenge is quite ambiguous and not really challenging. Sorry for saying that.

Anyway, this challenge should be about realistic and beautiful railways.

Zhenkang, I think the challenge of one of these events is what you make of it. Being ambiguous is really better for this sort of challenge as it forces you to think out of the box to submit a unique entry, and the freedom of what you can do allows you to be as detailed as you want with it.

I can't enter still as I am on holiday still :P But for my suggestion, I'd say do like a maintenance depot to a subway or light-rail system in really fine detail, research what buildings can be found there, maybe place down buildings to represent trains in the depot? You can always make it look prettier by filling in large empty gaps with grassland.

Good luck everybody, and I can't wait to see what you all do with it!

It is in my country Freedonia, in the city Xerox. Xerox is in the southern part of the most northern island

The station name is Xerox Station. There is a couple more subway stations to the right and there is another big station at the end of the station chain called Hampton Station.
