It is now recomended to have the SPSF recourse pack installed. Check IR Discord for link. There are some areas where rails from the pack is used. Works fine without it however, but it is recomended for visual effect.



Update 13.04.21
New area south of main city: Cranwich harbor. Tracks trhough suburbs to a large grain terminal (Half way done, still needs work). Rerouted main line in Cranwich, more gentle slopes, and a better ride. Remade yard in Cranwich, still lacks details however.

Update 25.02.21
New street running network and industrial area in main city, Cranwick. More details along the network in Elmton. General detailing along the map.

Updated 06.12.20
The new city has had a rail extention and a station, through a detailed, dense urban core. A coach yard is located here aswell, and a service facility

Sarver Bay, at the far end of the track, now has a turn table. The foundation of an upcoming depot and a yard is layed. Nothing is finished, but locomotives can be flipped arround atleast.

Updated 08.11.20

Rail extentions from the desert/mesa station to end terminal in new city. Started working on a new industrial city, freight yard and depot finished. Added drop-off area to cement plant.

Updated 12.09.20

Rail extentions in snow and mesa biome, three new stations. Oil facility in main city.

Updated 12.08.20

Lumber yard and new town. Check change log for more info

Updated 01.06.20.

Small update. Line extention: A new line is not beeing built. From the original town, there is now a new line branching off from the sunken railway section. It goes through a short tunnel, before ending up at a dock area. It passes through a detailed dock and warehouse, before leaving the city. Then your ride goes through a scenic swampland off to new areas. The place it ends up have not been built up yet. But the railway does a large loop, so you can head back towards the area you came from. It is in other words just a scenic tour for now.

Fast travel between the two (still unnamed) main towns have now been set up. You can teleport from one station to another.

A new ship is added to the harbour, created by Commentered. Link for the downloadable ship is at the bottom.

Updated 29.03.20.

Line extended past the new station. You can now run your train in a loop, comming past the industrial and dock area, before returning back to the original city. Your trains can now run around forever without the need for turntables, if you wish.

Stone quarry is established. The Flatawe Valley Mining Co. exports large amounts of stone on the railway.

New smal depot along the route, just between the stone quarry and the cement plant.

Elevated rail extended. Detail work is still needed, but the track is longer, contains a new station, and have a distanse without stop to be able to get higher speed.

A yard have been made in the original city, where you can store and asemble trains for a longer journey. Freight trains from other destinations can end their trip here, and shunters can bring the cars to the right destinations on the street running track.

More detail work along the line. More vegetation, farmland, power poles, roads, switch towers and other decorative stuff have been added in various locations along the railway, both in the cities and in the country side. It becomes a more scenic tour when riding along.



Updated 19.03.20.

A new suburb station outside the main city. A local commuter train can now run between four stations, or a regional train to the other city can stop here on the way.

Concrete facility: You can now ship gondolas from the cement plant to this area for unloading.

The new city is more built up: Nicer scenery when driving to the new station. There is a whole city here now, with a new industrial spur.

Depot in new city: A good place to start or end a journey. Does have a turntable, so you are able to turn arround, and head back to the original city.

Harbour: Goods have finally a place to end up, or to come from. Ship cars down to the docks, or away on the car float.






I wanted to make a standard gauge railway again, with a focus on urban industrial areas, and elevated rail service. Much on the buildings is inspired by american architecture, from industrial areas around Brooklyn. This map contains an elevated subway line, street running tracks to serve industry, a mainline going through the city to a central station, and a large depot for locomotive service.

At the moment, there is nut much outside the city area. You can ride your shunting locomotive to various areas arround the city, sereving different warehouses and factories. There is also a smal suburb outside the city with a station for local trains, a small town further down the line, and the beginning of a new town with a larger station a few minutes away. When it comes to industry, there is a large cement plant along the railway, but not a dedicated place to deliver the goods in the city yet. Many of the buildings are beeing reused many times arround the city, everything is not uniqe. I have however tried to make some uniqe stuff arround every area on the railway, so it will feel different when you travel. If this is not to your liking, then you are welcome to go make your own map, with only special buildings.

NOTE that this map is no way close to finished, with many weird spots in the city, where you see straight into a wall of trees, or a flat, open grassland. I am focusing on covering up areas that can be seen from the track, but as soon as you start flying arround, it all looks odd. That is they way it will be.

MOD CONFLICT: For some reason that I do not know, this map does not work with Journey Map. Even tho there is no other mod used than IR, the map shuts down when Journey Map is loaded. I recomend to remove it when using this map.

You are welcome to use this map they way you want, sharing screenshots and videos as you please. Just be kind to give credit where needed. You are however not allowed to reupload any content on the map, nor the map itself. Private use only.


The map is built with only vanilla blocks, exept for the railway system. You do therefore only need the Immersive Railroading mod.

Updates will come to this map from time to time, either with a growing city, or new destinations. Enjoy your trainride.

Update 13.04.21 : 04/13/2021 4:45:48 pmApr 13th

New area to the south of Cranwich (Main city): Cranwich harbor. Railway through suburban area, and ends up at a new grain terminal. The area does still need more work, but it is useable.

Remade the yard in Cranwich. More details will come. The yard does now have tracks for freight train assembly, coach storage, and a track to the ice house.

Remade the mainline out from Cranwich. The tracks does no longer go down the steep ditch, but has a longer and more gentle slope, going past the yard.

I would assume that you should be able to open the map without the mod installed. It will ofcourse not look as great, as the railroad tracks will be gone. But everything else is built using only vanilla blocks, so as long as the game lets you run it without the mod, it should work fine to explore it. Best thing you can do is to try it out

The map is made using 1.12. Any versions below that will not work, as there are many blocks used from newer versions.

The map is made using 1.12, so it can be used on 1.12+. To get the map, you just click the big, blue "download" button on top of this page. The mod have to be downloaded seperatly from Curse. Just google the mod, and you will find it.

I am not quite sure what locomotive you are thinking about, but I would assume it is the one in the mesa biome? If that is the case, it is from Xyvorcales pack. You can find it by searching his name in the resource-packs channel in the IR Discord.

That is the list of mods I have installed when building the map. But the only one needed is IR, and to some extent Immersive Engeneering. However, some people have had some problems, and needed some of the other mods installed. Usually Custom NPC. That is however rare cases.

also, another question. will you continue to support 1.12.2 for this map? too many of the mods i use are not planning to go above 1.12.2 until forge fixes their issues of documentation. additionally, are there plans to complete the road that goes around the farmland, to get to the next area? i have been planning to use this map for a modded towny/rp world, and it would be nice to have roads that connect

For the moment I am staying on 1.12 aswell, as I use alot of McEdit when I build. And that program does not function past 1.12. What happends in the future however, is not clear. I do doubt that the road will be extended anywhere, as the function of it is to be decorative along the rail. There is also an ugly artificial dam ahead of that road, so it would not be a quick job to extend it. I will focus on rail development on this map. You are however free to build on the map yourself, and extend the road.

I do not know why that happends. It have happend to a few other people, but for most of them it did show up after a while. Try to close and reload, and fly away to a new area where there should be tracks. If it does not help, then I do not know what will.

Well, the map is quite large, with alot of buildings, different kinds of blocks, and railway. So it can be a challange to run this on a less evolved computer. There is not much I can do about that I am afraid. The map is not sutable for high speed travel, but ment for slower rides and shunting, where you can enjoy the scenery.
