AirLink was first proposed back in November 2017, when Charlie_RBX, the [[Managing Director]] and founder of [[The Network|SCR]], stated in the #announcements channel on Discord that a new line was coming. It was named AirportExpress in the old network plans, and the first train that was going to run on it was the Class 345 ''Aventra''. Many people were excited for the new line. Then later, multiple Class 345 trains started testing on the AirLink mainline. This was a sign that AirLink would be coming soon. People waited until the end of the year, but the new line never came. Another image was posted in #announcements showing two Class 345s at the [[Stepford Airport Parkway Depot]]. (A video is available on YouTube of the Class 345's testing.)

On the 23rd of September of 2018, an image was posted to the #sneak-peeks channel by the [[Innovation Director|Innovations Director]], BanTech. It showed a picture of the new [[Stepford Central]] track layout for signal boards at the ROC. In the picture, it showed that platforms 12, 13, 14, and 15 were going to be used. This caused wild speculation among SCR players, stating that AirLink may be coming in [[V1.1]].

Then in December, SCR released an advent calendar with each day as a sneak peek for Version 1.1. On Day 22, it finally happened. In a surprise announcement, they said that a new line, AirLink, was going to be released, with Classes [[Class 185|185]] and [[Class 802|802s]] running on the line. It is unknown why the Class 345 was never released, but it is most likely due to the fact that seven coaches would be too laggy and the Class 345 is a city train and that AirLink only uses express trains.

Then in December, SCR released an advent calendar with each day as a sneak peek for V1.1. On Day 8, in the corner of the [[Berrily]] sneak peek, the [[AirLink Headquarters]] was shown spreading wild speculation that AirLink might be coming in [[SCR Version 1.1|V1.1]]. On Day 22, AirLink was confirmed, with Class [[Class 185|185]] and [[Class 802|802]] units running on the line. Many people were confused as to why the [[Class 345]]s were rejected - the most plausible answer is lag along with a slow max speed of only 90. On December 31st when the clock struck midday AirLink was opened, just in time for New Year.

Soon after the release of 1.1 on New Years' Eve, more trains were added to the fleet, such the [[Class 332]] and [[Class 360]]. In February, the Airport Terminals Were added. In May, AirLink introduced its refurbished 185 with NG technology. The [[Class 387]] was then moved to AirLink from [[WaterLine]] in June and also refurbished with NG technology. Not long ago, Airlink got a new logo and a new colour, from yellow to dark orange. Then in September, a new train was added to the fleet: the [[Class 755]] and the line was extended to [[Leighton Stepford Road]] to commemorate SCR hitting 5 million visits. Toward the end of September, the [[Class 802]] got a refurbishment to [[Next Generation]] technology. <gallery>

OverviewEdit

AirLink serves as the quick airport rail link between Stepford City or Leighton, and Stepford Airport, delivering passengers to Stepford Airport CentralAirport Terminal 2 and Airport Terminal 3 in 8 minutes. It currently haStepford Citys 7 routes, 2 direct, the 5 others with a flipped stopping pattern.

The livery of the Gatwick Express is used on newer AirLink trains.

The AirLink Headquarters can be found at Berrily.

History of AirLink Edit

2017 Edit

AirLink was first proposed back in November 2017, when Managing Director Charlie_RBX stated a new franchise was coming. The Class 345 Aventra trains were proposed to run the services, and many people were excited. In December 2017, multiple Class 345 trains started public testing, a sign that AirLink services were soon to commence, but they never did.

2018 Edit

On the 23rd of September, an image was posted to the #sneak-peeks channel on SCR's Discord by Innovations Director BanTech which showed a picture of the new Stepford Central track layout for signal boards at the ROC. In the picture, it showed that platforms 12, 13, 14, and 15 were going to be used. This caused wild speculation among SCR players, stating that AirLink may be coming in V1.1.

Then in December, SCR released an advent calendar with each day as a sneak peek for V1.1. On Day 8, in the corner of the Berrily sneak peek, the AirLink Headquarters was shown spreading wild speculation that AirLink might be coming in V1.1. On Day 22, AirLink was confirmed, with Class 185 and 802 units running on the line. Many people were confused as to why the Class 345s were rejected - the most plausible answer is lag along with a slow max speed of only 90. On December 31st when the clock struck midday AirLink was opened, just in time for New Year.

2019 Edit

Class 332 and Class 360 units were shortly introduced. In February, Stepford Airport Terminals 1, 2, and 3 opened for service. In May, AirLink recieved its first Next Generation fleet upgrade with the Class 185s. The Class 387s were then moved to AirLink from WaterLine, having been upgraded like Class 185. AirLink soon received a new logo and a new colour scheme, from yellow to orange. In July, Class 360 received Next Generation upgrade. In September, the Class 755s were introduced and services extended to Leighton Stepford Road to commemorate SCR hitting 5 Million Visits. Toward the end of September, the Class 802s were upgraded to Next Generation. AirLink celebrated its first anniversary on the 31st of December 2019, the day Version 1.1 was also released. Since then, the line has not received any further upgrades, and the entire AirLink network has seemed to be completed, however the upgrading of the Class 332 units to Next Generation is still to be completed.
