"All board, have you got your pass?"
When the first train was built, Goltheris gained the ability to quickly move across their territory.
During the The Great War, the trains were used to transport [name needed] and the war mages from far edges of Goltheris to The Contested Lands. As of the current time, only the The Five Cities and The Kingdom of Tormyra have allowed Goltherine train-builders into their borders to construct new trains and lay tracks down.
Steam-powered trains tend to have more metal parts than the more magically-powered trains, though passenger carts on both sets tend to be made from wood more than metal.
The Goltherine Railway maintains the railways as per the terms of Tormian-Goltherine Treaty, though the Railway is more inclined towards building new track to connect existing tracks.
I am not a train engineer, nor am I an engineer. Most of the technical details are being left blank for now as a result, sorry about that!
