Stepford County Railway Wiki
Advertisement


Stepford Connect operates rail services to various districts around Stepford County, such as Benton, Leighton, Morganstown, Whitefield, Berrily, Stepford Airport, Llyn-by-the-Sea and Willowfield. A full journey on the main line, which runs from Willowfield to Llyn-by-the-Sea takes about 45 minutes and is drivable on the Class 68 and Class 444 only.

The operator is classified as commuter rail as the intent of the services is to deliver passengers to and from major centres, indicated by the current routes, rather than being a link for intermediate stations in between some large areas like regional rail. The trains on this route reach a maximum speed of 110 miles per hour, with the average being 100mph.


As part of a renewed franchise from 1 May 2020, this operator is now branded as Stepford Connect and bears a  bright blue  colour scheme, courtesy of rail management system Transport For Stepford. Prior to the renewal, the brand was simply Connect.

Trivia

  • This is the first operator in SCR and is therefore the oldest operator in the whole game.
  • This operator has the biggest fleet and operates to the most stations in the game. It also has the most routes in the game.
  • This is the only operator with more than one Electrostar train in its fleet.
  • This operator has the most spawning locations as well as depots.
  • Some of the stations were originally purposed to be on Metro, that was later cancelled.
  • In V1.5, the Class 380 was the only train with the new livery on this operator, with the other trains receiving the new livery in V1.6.
  • Waterline was a former part of this operator and some believe that Stepford Express is currently part of this operator too, although this has never been confirmed or disproved.
  • This operator, along with Waterline, were the last operators to see their trains upgraded to Next-Gen.
  • This is the only operator without a hub or base for all routes.
  • It is the only operator to serve all Network Rail stations before they receive the Transport For Stepford sign in V1.6.
  • There are still remnants of the old Connect branding hidden around the map, such as station color schemes at Whitefield Lido (prior to V1.8) and Ashlan Park[Note 4], and the Connect sign inside the tunnel between Westercoast and Millcastle Racecourse.
  • This is the only operator where no trains in the fleet can operate on every single route, due to 2 of the routes are exclusive to Class 68 and 444, while the Class 68 and 444 are banned from operating on a number of other routes as well.
  • Excluding variants, all trains costs 1500 points except the Class 68, Class 357, Class 707, Class 717 and the Class 444.
  • Stepford Connect operate two of the shortest routes in the game, this is Edgemead to Leighton West (R041) and Leighton City to Leighton West (R043) with a total of 2 stops respectively.
  • Prior to V1.8.2, R009 was also a free route. With the release of the aforementioned version, R045 was added and replaced R009.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 *R003
  2. Unlock with 200 Experience
  3. 5 if the 2 locomotives are counted
  4. Although Ashlan Park is served by Waterline, the operator used to be a franchise of Connect, and their colour scheme was used in the station.
