Pegton [87, 55]
A high-tech station, among the best and busiest in Malton prior to the outbreak. Its glass-and-steel canopy allows plenty of light inside the concourse, and the entire design eased the flow of human and train traffic. Surprisingly good restaurants as well as snack bars, cafes and small shops offered plenty to amuse and satisfy commuters.
One of Mayor Angus McFergus's undoubted triumphs, the Norton railway nexus served several key purposes: it speeded east-west transit for Malton's crosstown commuters and those travelling beyond the city limits, and it ensured that Pegton reaped the economic benefits of this traffic, as opposed to Dentonside to the east. The station also served the nascent Healing Plaza of three hospitals - St. Siricius's, St Matt's and St Lizzy's, and did much to raise the accessibility and profile of these three hospitals within the city.
The far-sighted scheme was a major contribution to the renaissance of eastern Pegton, while Dentonside and its Russian immigrant population remained stagnant and depressed (and frankly pretty depressing) during the late 20th century.
