Muscle Jock has done major construction in the nether, wow!
Earlier I met Scron and we hung out in Gay Village
Gay Village is coming back big I tell you, there are some really exciting revitalization projects slated for the region.
That picture in the nether is of MuscleJock Island ( many just call it 'Muscle' Island ) , the main hub of the NetheRail. I hadn't posted it yet because construction has been delayed while our engineers learn about those fancy European rail-switches, I'll wait till it has seen substantial progress to share a glorious photo of it. On the plus side once completed it will allow for a "one-seat" ride to/from any major destination. We are currently in talks with the leaders of many big name settlements to add several exciting new routes. Keep an eye on this project becuase in December it will probably blow your damn socks off.
In other NetheRail news, here is the Historic King's Castle NetheRail station located at the Portal to King Fonaplats Castle near world spawn ( currently Los Carnales Territory ).
Currently this station has only one connection, via the incredible new ExpressTunnel to MuscleJock Island. This ExpressTunnel route entered official service on Nov 4, 2019 and saves the rider over 30 seconds per trip compared to the old LegacyRail ( which is still ride-able , and accessible just outside the station ). A major benefit of the ExpressTunnel is the full-encasement by a special high strength glass made by the Los Carnales. This coating prevents Ghasts from seeing and targeting the riders, a major safety problem on the LegacyRail. Riding the ExpressTunnel truly is a convenient, relaxing and safe experience. So come try it today and enjoy this scenic new route.

Speaking of this ExpressTunnel, contractors hired from Monolith Railways are expected to finish a major upgrade to the tunnel today. Tunnel height is being increased from two blocks to three which will greatly increase safety. Currently riders who disregard safety instructions and exit their minecarts during the trip are wedged in too-small of a space between the cart and the tunnel ceiling causing them to be fatally ejected through the tunnel floor into lava. After two recent incidents, it was decided this cannot happen any longer on a modern railway!
^ Notice the increased tunnel height compared to the photo with the Ghast above.
