Ghet Rail Train
I'm a spacetrain, got a rocket on my back
Luridity's galactic railway, the Ghet Rail, has a series of stations and ports which connnect every system in the Luridity Express Zone. Imports and exports are important, as is the burgeoning tourism industry. There are three waystations and two central hubs, one within the Luridity Express Zone and one in the junction between the Luridity Express Zone, Centralvest Zone, and Centraleasque Zone. For long-distance travel, routine deliveries, imports, exports, and overlarge special orders, nothing beats the convenience of the space train. It follows a set path and always gets where it's going. Smaller in-system tracks run by the Ghet Rail are established to assist with interplanetary trade and travel. These are in place in all three connected zones, however only Luridity Express Zone connects all planets. Centralvest and Centraleasque connect rail lines to primary system planets only, and utilize planet to planet shuttles for everywhere else. In-system rail-lines notably lack many of the conveniences of the main Ghet Rail, but provide much shorter trips over the course of a few hours rather than days.
Train DesignA Ghet Rail train can pull anywhere between 4 and 20 cars. Each train is loaded from the lead car airlock, with passengers moving through the train cars until they arrive at their seats. Airlocks then seal between all cars, internally and externally. BioIDs with appropriate access can open a set of internal airlocks in order to allow a passenger to traverse between train cars, such as from a seated car to sleeping car or the dining car to the observation deck. Luggage cars and any import/export goods being shipped on a passenger run are inaccessible during the flight. Inserting an airlock and flexible connection between each car allows for high maneuverability when on a flight path. The Ghet Rail train is modelled after early space shuttle designs, propelled heavily from the large, curved back end of the train--containing rockets where a land train would otherwise have a caboose. The train is then steered from the front, with adjustment controls for each train car. Booster jets are added to the sides of the train to allow for side to side movement. Gravity wells, delicate technical systems, and life pods are located on the underside of each train car, shielded from space with specialized invissteel. All parts of Ghet Rail train cars are provided by the Cogsmite star system.
Good luck breaking into the train parts market. No one makes the things right except the Cogsmites. Something about proper formulas, sure. But you know, if you ask me, all those misfortunes trying to make parts in the first place are awful convenient.
