City Subway

CITY SUBWAY
The quickest and cheapest way to travel.  With eight main lines travelling to the different compass points of the city, the subway intersects extremely well with the city's bus system.  The trains themselves are fairly modern and the oldest is not even a decade old.

CENTRAL STATION
With well-lit platforms, manned ticket booths around the clock, electronic boards and a variety of signs to guide even the simplest of tourists, visiting Central Station is an all around pleasant experience.  There are efficiently run coffee stands, smiling security guards, souvenir stalls and newstands.  The toilets are clean and hobo free.  If only the other stations around the city were maintained so well.

NORTHERN LINE
Leading out to the Industrial district, these trains carry a great deal of factory workers between work and home.  These trains are very difficult to find even standing space on at peak hour.  Each station is mostly well lit, though the further north travelled, the more isolated each station becomes.

NORTH-WESTERN LINE
A lot of tourists can be found on these trains, as they head towards the beach and other recreational spots.

WESTERN LINE
Passengers on this train look a great deal more colourful and eccentric to the ordinary person, due to the arts and crafts nature of the westside of the city.  The most common travellers on these trains are students, as one of the stations is outside the Watson University of the Arts.

SOUTH-WESTERN LINE
Usually a person travelling on this train can find a seat, as these carriages are hardly filled at all.  The South-Western line is usually the one where a person can find themselves mugged or attacked, due to the isolated nature of the train as well as the stations.  The South Western takes the traveller to a variety of suburbs, but nothing notable.

SOUTHERN LINE
These trains are the cultural person's ticket to entertainment.  One of the stations is strategically located between the Municipal Library and the Museum.  Others stop at cinemas or at private clubs.  The large parkland known as Pisky is also a favourite.  After the last entertainment based stop, the train is almost empty for the rest of the trip, where it ventures into the suburbs.

SOUTH-EASTERN LINE
Usually a person travelling on this train can find a seat, as these carriages are hardly filled at all.  The South-Western line is usually the one where a person can find themselves mugged or attacked, due to the isolated nature of the train as well as the stations.  The South Western takes the traveller to a variety of suburbs, but nothing notable.

EASTERN LINE
Not many citizens travel down this line, for those who can afford to live in the Eastern suburbs generally have their own cars, and drivers.  The trains on this line are often used as meeting points for the criminal element; dealers, gangs, and sometimes the more sinister and supernatural element uses these train as a hunting ground.  However, the further east one travels away from the city and into the suburbs and eventual estates, the better lit and maintained the stations begin to be.

NORTH EASTERN LINE
The trains are often filled with those with little money.  A mixture of self-supporting students, grim-faced blue collar workers, the almost-homeless, single-parent families and a generous portion of thugs and vandals.  Crime isn't as common here as one would think, as there is very little to steal.  There are problems with gangs, however, and other bullies.
