Scattered across the map, there are various large, rectangular buildings displaying interesting names such as "BenTach's Systemz". Many of these structures have somewhat humorous names and some contain references to certain aspects of the SCR community. There are many different types of Commercial Buildings, ranging from large, blocky structures to small downtown shops. This page contains a complete list of all the Commercial Buildings in SCR and the stories behind some of them.

Please note that the explanations behind most of these commercial buildings are just what is generally believed by the community. Only one of which has been confirmed.

Morganstown Branch

These commercial buildings are located on the Morganstown branch line. All but the last one can be found between Elsemere Junction & Berrily.

  • VisitBodin - Department of Knowledge: This is one of three VisitBodin structures and was probably built for Product Developer thehazad9, in order for him to attract people to Bodin, his favorite station.
  • Choc's Biscuits: This store is believed to be owned by the former Platform Manager, choclatesalty123.
  • PizzabyBilly: This is perhaps the most famous of all the commercial buildings. PizzabyBilly is named in honour of the Signaller Manager, billythepet, who is revered throughout the community for his pizza. There is another PizzaByBilly located at Westercoast.
  • BenTach's Systemz: This commercial building was almost certainly designed as a joke. It appears to be the headquarters of BenTach, a nonexistent impostor of the Innovations Director BanTech.
  • James' M.O.T.s - M.O.T.s while you wait for a mate!: Little is known about the story behind this building. In the UK, M.O.T. means "Ministry of Transport" which is a department of the UK government. All UK vehicles have to go through "MOT tests", which are to check that they are safe to drive. So an MOT site like "James' M.O.Ts" is a place which offers these tests for vehicles. [1]
  • Berry's Berries of Berrily: This commercial station is located very close to Berrily, so the story behind its alliterative name is quite obvious. Interestingly, an unused track branches off of the AirLink tracks near this building and appears to collide with the structure's west wall. There are two buildings in Westercoast with similar names: Barry's Berries and Berry's Berries. This building could be named after former Product Developer yrrebRBLX.
  • Greenslade Security: Likely named after SirGreenslade who was a security officer at SCR before that rank was removed. While the building is located at East Berrily, it can be seen from Greenslade.

Waterline

Waterline has many commercial buildings. The first two on this list can be found between West Benton and Faraday Road, while the rest are located between Newry and Newry Harbour.

  • West Benton Pet Supplies: One of the buildings is located across the line from West Benton station and the other is between Faraday Road and West Benton and appears to be a warehouse. Advertisements can be found at Leighton City, Starryloch, Whitefield and Whitefield Lido.
  • Dodgy Dave's Driveway- Distribution Center: Sponsored by VisitBodin: Department of Money. It's primary title, "Dodgy Dave's Driveway," appears to be a reference to Dave, a mythical person Charlie has dubbed the Chief Measurements Officer.
  • Newry Packaging Center
  • Coming Soon...: Yes, you read correctly. This building simply displays the text "Coming soon..." It is unknown what will be put here, if anything at all.
  • Matty Studios: This commercial building appears to be the headquarters of Matty Studios, a development group owned by Mattyx2013 (a former Product Developer). It also seems to own West Benton Pet Supplies as there is the company's logo beneath the advertisements for that store and on the West Benton Pet Supplies building located in West Benton.
  • Haughton Foundry: Haughton Foundry is former Product Developer yrrebRBLX's Roblox development team for the game Mind the Gap. Haughton Foundry has two buildings in SCR - this commercial building, and a large tower between Stepford Central and Stepford East with yrreb's signature teapot painted on it.
  • Tob's Tools: Possibly a workshop.
  • Newry Harbour Customs & Shipping Centre: While some believe this to be the harbour that Newry Harbour station serves, some disagree.
  • Benton Stonk Exchange: Reference to the "stonks" meme.

Llyn Branch

The majority of the Commercial Buildings on the track from Edgemead to Llyn-by-the-Sea are different in that they occupy just small shops that all make up one massive building, instead of one large structure each.

  • Welsh's Watchmakers: This building could potentially be for TransportForWales (formerly thewelsh1), the former Guard Manager.
