Description

Designed in the 1990s by Malton's leading architect, James Vaughan, to replace the shabby, falling-down train station that occupied the spot previously. The railway station at Elkins Plaza, with its futuristic design, including glass walls and soaring ceilings, was the pride of Millen Hills and one of the talking points of Malton.

Today, it sits abandoned, glass walls not being very effective at keeping out ravenous hordes of flesh-eating monsters.

History

This empty railroad station was once a part of the city's now extinct Malton Rail system.

The first train station to occupy Elkins Plaza was a boring, shabby red-brick building built in the 1900s. Neglect and vandalism quickly made it a blot on the otherwise beautiful vistas of Millen Hills. The eyesore was finally torn down on the order of the city council in 1987, and the spot became a vacant lot for three years before Vaughan was commissioned to design a new station for the plaza.

Upon completion, Elkins Plaza Railway Station quickly became renowned as a beautiful building with spectacular design as well as functionality. Unfortunately, the grand opening in 1992 was marred by the death of a 12-year-old boy, Jeremy Gordon, who was pushed in front of an approaching train and killed instantly. The pusher has never been satisfactorily identified, but many believe the death to be the work of notorious killer William "Pathetic Bill" Lucas.

Despite this ill omen, the station became the most efficient in the Malton Rail system, and held this title right up until the quarantine of the city in 2005.
