Railways of England

There are several railway companies in the England.

  • The Great Northern Railway
  • North English Railway (The Northeastern Railway "here")
  • Midland Railway (Also Has a Derby-Castreleon Line, and various lines in south Essex)
  • Great Eastern Railway
  • London and North Western Railway
  • Southeastern and Chatham Railway
  • London and Southwestern Railway (only to the Kemrese Border)
  • London, Brighton and South Coast Railway

Railways in Kemr

  • Ffeirweir Gran Est/Great Western Railway were the first railway company to open a nonstop service from London to Castreleon. They send trains out of London's Paddingtown Station and go through Reading, Cumer and Glew to reach the Great Western Terminal in Castreleon. They also operate most of the services in Dunein (this includes the Dunein mainline which heads down thru Glastein, Esca, Trurow) and the various branches thereof, and a Marches Line (Glastein-Bristow-Trixeth). They also run south Coast of Cambria line services (with the help of an overpass built in 1972 through Castreleon you can now get a train straight through from London to Porth Dewi Saeth to catch the boat to Ireland). They also helped fund the Pont Havren, which has since been able to cut journey times; but that is owned by the city of Castreleon.
  • Fferweir Gran Central/Great Central Railway, based in Mafyc, runs from Mafyc Ystrad di Londyn to London Marleybone Station, and also owns extensive lines in Yorkshire and Rheged.
  • Fferweir di D√Ľnein Ostr/South Dumnonian Railway runs from London's Lambeth station (Via L&SWR) to Portsmouth, Sorduno, Lhiem Rheges, Durnoen and Esca as well as other lines through southern Dunein.
  • Fferweir di Rheged e Eboracow/Rheged and Yorkshire Railway runs various lines in Rheged, Dui, and Yorkshire in England, from its stations in Sedan Ysceim and Mafyc Buddeg.
  • Ffeirweir ddi Kemr Beif runs from London Broad Street to Coventry and Cambria/Rheged, including Aberddui and the North Kemr Coast.
  • The governments of Dunein and Rheged also own some rural branchlines.


  • Scottish Railways (CR) (note the plural) is the national railway company of Scotland, and is the only FK railway to have a natioanlised company formed out of various private subsection railways in 1914 due to GWI. Today it runs under private sector preferentiallism, which expanded the previously existing, as several railways based on the previous ones. It has survived various changes in government in through the 70s to this day. With the exception of international services south into England (and, by extention, Kemr) they effectively run all of the Scottish Railway Services.

High Speed Rail

Various technologies exist, but the most popular is rather like the Advanced_Passenger_Train on the Great-Western and Midland Railway, like the Pendolino Design on the LNWR/FB and like the InterCity_225 on the GNR/NER. The CTRL link was probably built by SNCF with very little English input other than requiring an English act of Parliament; it is an extention of the TGV lines (strictly), connecting to the L&NWR (to Dublin), the GWR (to Castreleon) and the GNR (to Edinburgh). Thus there are trains from Many major Euro capitals. Nonetheless other High Speed Lines exist on other Railways. The LCR has one between Swindon right across the Pont Hafren to Castreleon, I think, as well as the GNR from Peterborough to Doncaster, the NER north of York all the way to Middlesburgh, the FBK from Merddlan to the outskirts of Edinburgh and LNWR from Watford to Coventry.

Local Lines

In London there are various Metros, run by various companies and co-ordinated by the Metropolitan Board of Works. These include the Metropolitan Railway, the Metropolitan District Railway, the East London Railway, the London Electric Railway and the Central London Railway. The traveller need not worry, nonetheless, about these distinctions. In addition there are small underground railways in Newcastle and Glasgow and an Elevated Railway in Aberddui. Most other sizeable towns have tramways - there are extensive ones in most Kemrese cities. South London, like other English cities, has Double-decker trams, which are seen by Kemrese and Scottish tourists as rather English - they are on many postcards as a result. However, in recent years, with increased ridership, many cities in Kemr and Scotland have double-decker trams as well.

Other Local railways include the Isle of Wight Railway (although the LB&SCR and L&SWR jointly operate a line from Ryde St John's to Stokes Bay, Gosport, Portsmouth and Hilsea).
