Name of Nation: Kingston and Boyce
Location of Rail Yard/Train Station: Port Ruppert
Name of Rail Yard/Train Station: Port Ruppert Central Station
Brief History: Port Ruppert's Central Station is the nation's largest and busiest train station, connecting many lines from the countryside with the CityExpress high speed lines. The train station was built between 1920 and 1926 and in its first stage featured 6 tracks on 3 platforms. In 1968, an expansion of the station introduced 7 new platforms, making it the second largest station in size in Kingston and Boyce. In 1975, with the opening of the Jaques- Reichenbach- Bridge over the Alouette Channel towards Vancouver and Seattle, Port Ruppert became more influential for transfer passengers, making another expansion by 3 platforms necessary. That remained the status quo until 1996, when the CityExpress network was planned and constructions started. Port Ruppert's Central Station got another four platforms, solely for High Speed trains, as well as two more underground platforms (for the Linkway network) and reached its (to date) final expanded size.

The tracks to the right go towards Ross and the north eastern shore lines, to the left is the trackway towards Vancouver and Seattle via Wyswater. Straight ahead are the tracks to Ste Hannah, Manchester and Portland.
