Overview

WaterLine is a minor operator of rail services across the Stepford County Railway network. It is a subsidiary of Stepford Connect, and as such Connect branding is visible on multiple aspects of WaterLine including rolling stock and signage. The highest speed of all Waterline rolling stock is 100 MPH and the max speed you will see is 90 MPH.

The WaterLine network has seen major expansions since the initial opening in late 2017 between Benton and Greenslade (now one of the five routes used).

The WaterLine Headquarters can be found at Faraday Road.

This is the first operator to share tracks, because this line and Stepford Connect share a small section of track between Benton and Port Benton.

History of WaterLine

2017

In October of 2017, Charlie_RBX, the Managing Director of SCR, stated that a new line was coming and that it would be a subsidiary of Stepford County's regional rail operator, Stepford Connect. Charlie also stated that the line would run from Benton, follow the Stepford Connect mainline to Port Benton, and continue on to a new branch line. The line's name was later revealed to be WaterLine, and the line opened around December 2017. The newly opened line, which ran from Benton to Greenslade, called at the following stations: Port Benton, Whitney Green, and Greenslade. Morganstown Docks was later opened toward the end of the year and was placed in between Port Benton and Whitney Green. At the end of the year, the new Newry branch opened with five new stations: Newry Harbour, Newry, Eden Quay, Faraday Road, and West Benton. The Class 387 was readded from Stepford Connect for Waterline services as well.

2018

The Big Update brought a big change into the line, introducing three new fleets (Class 171, Class 319, and Class 701 [Removed]). The update also brought a new branch towards Connolly which splits off with tracks to Greenslade at Benton, calling at three new stations: Cambridge Street Parkway, Ashlan Park. and Connolly.

During December 2018, the V1.1 advent calendar was launched, and had a bunch of sneak peeks and upgrades for WaterLine, including:

  1. Classes 165 and 166 liveries were redone and tweaked.
  2. New stations: Airport West and James Street.
  3. Class 701 removed and refunded.
  4. Class 387 livery and sound change.

After the update was released, WaterLine became slightly busier, but in line with the opening of the new Morganstown branch and AirLink, the line soon lost interest and went back to the hustle and bustle of the line back in 2017 with little traffic.

2019

On May 14, 2019, the Class 508 was released as part of the first next generation fleets in SCR as part of the Version 1.3 update alongside the Class 158 (Stepford Connect). On June 8, the Class 387 was removed from WaterLine and put on AirLink with the Class 379 replacing it. On August 31, the Class 171 was added to the fleet with Next Generation technology. The Class 319's upgrade to Next Generation was announced in early October. As of November 15 it is still undergoing the process of refurbishment.
