,Interrail' -OGF Version

Posted by kingfries on 9 July 2017 in English (English)

Hello fellow mappers, Whilst being in the very first steps of planning a (rail-) Trip across europe I had an idea. For those not familiar,an Interrail pass is a railpass bought mostly by Young people which enables them to travel by train all over Europe for cheap. Youre standing at the Station and See a train that goes somewhere you like. You fill in the station you are currently at, the one you are headed to and Just get on the train. The ogf-world seems to be working together slightly better than the real one, so why not introduce the Worldtravel-Pass (better name TBA?), which would enable the buyer to travel by rail and ferry all over the world instead of only one continent. There will still be cheaper versions of this only valid for one continent/Region or the more expensive one for the whole world. This could run under the World Tourism Organisation I assume. Now, realistically, Not every country can participate or wants to. But even nations which don't focus much on rail travel (my own included) or small island nations can offer Discounts for local bus/ferry etc. Services aswell as 10% discounts in hostels. Does this Sound too optimistic? Could be implemented in the wiki article as a table where you add your country and tick off the Services offered (Rail/Ferry/Urban transport/hostel & Museum discounts) using the Red/yellow/green symbols known from other articles. Looking forward to hearing your opinions. -Kingfries

This doesn't have any effect on mapping so I don't mind either way. If you decide to make a wiki article you can put Myrcia in if you'd like.

I went Interrailing this summer and I wrote this article about how to do it if you're interested

I'm in it! Also, it would be fun to have all the OGF train timetables somewhere.

Is this only in Uletha? If it is also in Archanta then I wonder about the rails..., which include maybe Commonia

This is a great idea, that way you don't have to fly all the time, you can visit stops along the way which is great.

Ok. It would also be a great opportunity to start my nation's railroad system!

While there is not many rail in Paroy just yet, this is a great idea for a cheaper way to travel the world!

Well, Western Uletha has a comparably dense railway network, so Erfeldia, Garlis, Ísztianország, and Ventria would like to participate. The problem though: Ventria is the only one of those countries where all railway lines have been mapped (without any details, but all lines are there). I'm working in Garlis currently, but it will take some weeks until I will have the general structure with all railway lines completed.

Karolia definitely in. But you have to pay a small amount extra to use high-speed trains.
