Engineers work the rails and camp out within Railroad Stations. Engineers align themselves with other Engineers apart of the MTA and with pro-survivor groups within the city they live in. Engineers are expected to keep in contact with Chief Engineer Kraeth. Other tasks an Engineer is expected to accomplish include obeying the Uniform Barricade Policy, do not participate in PKing and zerging, as well as helping to protect Railroad Stations, Malls, Police Departments, Hospitals and Fire Departments. We respect the DEM and everything the Department does for Malton.
Rail HistoryMalton City Council through a deal arranged with the National Railway Association (or, the NRA) and United National Investment Company of Eastern Financers (or, UNICEF). With the power of the NRA and the financial backing of UNICEF, two forces best not opposed, the city's main railway tracks, the NorthSouth Line and the EastWest Line, were constructed by November 1906. Of course construction did not end with these two major lines, but rather continued to expand as more and more railway stations were constructed in every one of the city's suburbs. By 1918 the railway had completed construction of the Great Western Line which ran through all the suburbs between Starlingtown and Owsleybank, providing swifter transport between east and west Malton as the earlier EastWest Line was used primarily to connect with the NorthSouth Line and thus provide inter-city transportation. It was not long before the NRA's trains were soon on track and providing both public and private transportation throughout Malton.
By 1930 the number of Malton's railway stations had nearly doubled, tripling in 1958, and quadrupling in 1976, as the city was considered one of the most public transport conscious city's in the entire country with some suburbs having as many as 5 to 6 stations all within a 10 block area. Prior to the "Malton Incident" the only suburbs that did not possess even a single railway station were Shearbank, West Boundwood, and Stanbury Village, each for their own reasons.
To this day survivors still dream of the day that the trains will once again run, perhaps allowing free and safe travel through zombie-infested Malton.
Northeast Malton, or the "NE Corner" as it is known to locals, has 69 railway stations located in varying numbers in its various suburbs. Of all four districts of Malton the northeast is known to have the largest number of railway stations in the entire city. This is no doubt due to it being the hub of Malton's industrial sector.
Shearbank, one of the three suburbs in Malton that has no railway stations, is located in this district. Heytown, on the other hand, has the most railway stations in this district, with the suburb possessing 6 stations in total. The two most traveled sets of tracks in this area are the NorthSouth Line and the EastWest Line.

The Malton Transit Authority works out of all parts of Malton. Currently there are five sectors. The main sector goes by the name of Unified Malton (UM). The Malton Transit Authority has 4 other sector HQs, Northeast Malton (NWM), Northeast Malton (NEM), Southeast Malton (SEM) and Southwest Malton (SWM).
Camp Rolls is the main HQ for the MTA. The HQ is Dorrington Road Railway Station in Yagoton. The entry point inside is at Factory 49,10. The following is a list of buildings around "Camp Rolls" which I find helpful. Police Departments, Hospitals, NecroTech Buildings, a Mansion and a Mall can all be used for ideal purposes.
