Description

Gibb Plaza Railway Station is a train station located in the suburb of Dulston. Once a bustling commuter paradise the platforms are now silent, the citizens all gone, and the faint moans of zombies can be heard in the distance.

The station was originally opened by Malton Rail in 1928 and served Dulston as the first stop-over for any passengers arriving from Rhodenbank to the west. Due to the railway station's location in the northeast corner of Malton it served as a point where Malton's East-West Line joined with the North-South Line, and vice versa depending on which way travelers were headed.

The only recorded tragedy at Gibb Plaza station was a train crash which occurred in 1964 when a train traveling along on the East-West Line heading southwards towards Heddington Walk Railway Station took the curve at an excessive speed and derailed. Three people were killed in the crash and over ten were seriously injured. After this tragic accident the Malton Rail corporation made certain that extra precautions were taken to prevent a similar incident.

This empty railroad station was once a part of the city's now extinct Malton Rail system.
Passenger services once provided by Malton Rail operated in two directions, allowing passengers the option to travel either on to Heddington Walk Railway Station in they were headed south to Pescodside, or west to Salter Grove Railway Station in nearby Rhodenbank along the Purple Line.

Barricade Policy

Barricades should be kept at Extremely Heavily at all times. The true purpose of this building is to serve as a heavily fortified shelter for Malton's veteran survivors. This ruling was set forth by the Dulston Optimal Defense Diagram and is enforced by all member groups of the Dulston Alliance.

Needing a revive he decided to MSN a fellow member of Dead vs Blue. The following is the very real MSN conversation which took place between Kevan Murphy (Officer Murphy) and Purdueohol (Mike)... only Mike wasn't at his computer at the time, but his girlfriend, Katie, was:

Kevan Murphy says:
I know you haven't signed in for a while. But have any needles?
Purdueohol - Mike says:
It's Katie...and while I have sewing needles, I don't think that's what you are asking for.
Kevan Murphy says:
lol
Kevan Murphy says:
Tell mike I need the needle hook-up. He'll understand.
Purdueohol - Mike says:
Is he selling you heroin?
