Before I share anything Nazca built for over 4 years in Minecraft, I need to help
THIS RAILWAY IS BUILT BY A DREAMER, UTILITARIANISM AND PRAGMATISM DO NOT APPLY HERE.
Nazca started playing Minecraft on 16th November 2011 and established Nazca Railway on the following day. Over 4 years, he built Nazca Railway in different worlds in Minecraft, yet today he is still building it, and this railway is only built by himself, 1 person.
Nazca has built Nazca Railway in different Minecraft worlds:
- Nether Division (2011 to 2012) Terminated and this was where Nazca Railway was originated
- Golden Division (2011 to 2012) Terminated and this was an overworld version of the Nether Division, on Nazca's friend's server
- Islands Division (2012) Terminated and was a short-term lab for Nazca Railway to develop advanced technology, especially self-researched Platform Screen Doors
- Terracept Division (2012 to 2015) Terminated and was the greatest division Nazca had built, over 190 stations and 500km of railways before Minecraft 1.7
- Rainbow Division (2014 to 2015) Terminated and was a small network for players to transport, but owned a longest link between 2 stations, 43km
- City Root Division (2015) Terminated and was a testing railway before the release of the world in the server
- Los Sengas Division (2015 ~ ) Currently developing, using the most advanced and traditional standards Nazca have ever used
Los Sengas Division
This division is currently developing by Nazca Railway, so it is worth for me to post this railway here. Recently this division has broken the record and is now the biggest network in the whole NR history.
Los Sengas Division was known by "Metropolis Division" at the beginning 3 months. It was established due to the event of Minecraft 1.7 update, simultaneously forced Terracept Division to close. Los Sengas is the city that NR builds in and it is totally NOT RELATED to Los Santos.
Nazca Railway provides several station class for Los Sengas Division, to serve different kinds of passengers:
- Sava Light Transit (the light-rail class and Nazca Railway affiliated railway)
- Standard Railway (Middle and Heavy rail class, the main railway network for Nazca Railway)
- the Veloduct (Commuter Railway)
- the Linker (Intercity Railway)
Nazca Railway always plans for the development of the railway network very carefully, Los Sengas is one of the most structured networks. Its initial plan, an extremely large terminal for multiple lines and hundreds of railroads, with 2 loop lines, 1 vertical link and 3 horizontal links. Since the matter of the size of the stations and rails, Nazca could not build them at once, so he divided the development to the system of "Season", "Episode" and "Chapter".
Season Development: The mega plan of the railway system, most likely takes one to one and a half year to complete.
Episode Development: Smaller plan of the railway system, takes weeks to complete and usually provides "Introduction" and "Conclusion" reports, there must be 19 episodes to complete a Season.
Chapter Development: Every single element of the development will be classified to this scale, such as a new station.
So far Nazca Railway has 1 completed season and known 106 chapters
and currently we are in Season 2 Episode 10 Chapter 4 when I am writing this thread.
Note: Since most of the reports of Nazca Railway is in Chinese, it will take us (me and Ranger_PNS) a while to process and to translate them into English. Please accept our apology for the delay of the reports.
Season 1 Episode 1 Chapter 1: Ever"green"
Nazca Railway has created a division in Metropolis, Line 1, also known as West Ring Line's first station has been completed. It's called "Greenrock Hill Station". Greenrock Hill Station is also the first mid-way station in Los Sengas, which uses the new standards and styles of Los Sengas Division.
Greenrock Hill Station is elevated, as the development of NR Los Sengas Division is not mature yet, NR will only use a normal construction style as the exterior and structure design. After the development gets mature, NR will consider using more modes, more special station structures, but still having the original meaning of "station". As Greenrock Hill Station is elevated, the structure is separated into 2 floors, and from top to bottom, they are respectively:
-Concourse & Exits
The platforms are about 16m above sea level, to make sure the environment is not affected. Also, this station uses fully indoors design, it means that passengers in platforms may think that they are inside an underground station. Greenrock Hill Station uses a pair of island platforms, which serves Line 1 West Ring Line; West side is for the inner ring trains; East side is for the outer ring trains. It means that trains in Los Sengas division stay on the left. The platforms use the standard length, 204m, and use the Classic Platform Screen Doors, so the part of platforms near the tracks are taller, and the middle is lower. The concourse of Greenrock Hill Station is right under the platforms, and it basically occupies the same area as the platforms. There are a few rectangular windows on both sides of the concourse, it is to tell passengers that they are actually above ground level, and to make up the sense of space in the concourse. There are 4 stairs and 2 elevators connecting the concourse and platforms. There is a gate area in the concourse. Although NR is free in charge, but setting up this gate-area helps with NR future development. The gate area is in the center of the concourse, and the non-gate area surrounds the gate area, so leaving from any exits can lead to all exits. The facilities in the concourse are minecart givers, station teleport, rubbish bins, and crafting tables, furnaces, anvils, brewing stand etc which has existed in Terracept Division before. Although these facilities are not required as the world has limited creative mode, NR will use these facilities to memorize the great contribution of Terracept Division.
The tracks between Metropolis Terminal and Greenrock Hill Station is the first part of tracks in Los Sengas Division. West Ring Line starts heading north from Metropolis Terminal, leaving the platforms and merging the tracks of 4 platforms and other lines, and finally raise to elevated tracks. The bridge's design of Los Sengas Division is almost the same as the bridges in Terracept Division, but the difference is that the distance between 2 tracks must be 3m; and the fence that prevents animals from entering tracks has changed to cobblestone walls. Although the distance between 2 stations are constructed on a bridge, but there is a hill between them, so part of the tracks is tunneled, connecting to Greenrock Hill Station. The single-way tracks are in total 2745m.
Also, NR has reviewed the old PrD number signs, and decided to ban this digit, replacing it with "mD".
The unit mD is similar to PrD, it's a number reducing digit, 1 mD stands for 100m, and it doesn't restart counting after passing a station, it continues counting. These numbers will be put in NR routes, if the individual route stays on the left, the number signs will stay on the left; same for the opposite. If 2 tracks are together (mostly in elevated bridges), the number signs will be in the middle.

Season 1 Episode 1 Chapter 2: Approaching Highland
After the first station that Line 1 West Ring Line passes through, the second station that the same line passes and the third station of the whole division has completed. The name of the station is "High Approach Station".
High Approach Station is the first station that NR Los Sengas Division built under the nature ground level. Because this is the first station that is built in a highland, thus the station was named "High Approach".
High Approach Station is the intermediate station of West Ring Line. It doesn't have any plans to expand. High Approach Station is located at 1 km northwest from Greenrock Hill Station. Although the platform levels of both High Approach Station and Greenrock Hill Station are the same, since the terrain of High Approach Station is a highland, so the whole station was buried underground. In terms of station structure, High Approach Station can divide into 2 levels, they are, from high to low, respectively:
- Concourse, Exits
The platforms of High Approach Station is located below the ground level. Although in the first episode of West Ring Line should feature elevated tracks and elevated stations, NR won't challenge with nature. Therefore, High Approach Station will stick to nature, and build the platform underground.
In the platform level, a pair of island platforms is used for West Ring Line: the western platform is Inner Ring, while the eastern platform is Outer Ring, which is the fastest way to go back to Metropolis Terminal. "Classic" PSDs are used in this station, therefore the height of the platform level can be higher, increasing the feeling of spaciousness. In the same time, NR has widened the platforms, decreasing the sense of oppression. The length of the platforms is 204 meters which stick to the standard length. To increase the sense of multi-level of the ceiling and the side of the platforms, NR intended to add arched beam in the ceiling of the platforms.
The concourse of High Approach Station is located at the top of the platforms. Due to the height of the platforms is close to the surface, therefore, the concourse is built on the ground level. The area of the concourse will not use all the space at the top of the platforms, it is only built on top of the center of the platforms. However, the concourse has 3 staircases and 1 lift connecting the platform level, covering most of the platforms' area. The entry gate area is located at the western side of the concourse level, while the non-entry-gate area is located at the eastern side. All the facilities are located inside the entry gate area, including the minecart giver, warp point etc. There are 2 exits in High Approach Station, all located at the eastern side of the concourse level, one in the north and one in the south. There are no developments near the station and is still under-developed.
The tracks between Greenrock Hill Station and High Approach Station is mainly elevated bridge as the tool of the link. Since there is a hill located in the middle of the tracks, so in-between 2 stations there will be a part of tunneled section. Also, the elevated bridge near High Approach Station consists of a high-speed junction, from the inner-ring track to the outer-ring track. On the way, the junction took place higher than the main line. This design although seems to be useless for now, but the main purpose of this is to establish the basic foundation for the more complicated tracks in the future. Before going in High Approach Station, the tracks will need to soft turn a bit because of the island platforms while the link after High Approach Station will stay in the tunnel before it can be elevated again.

Season 1 Episode 1 Chapter 3:
The 4th station in NR Los Sengas Division, the station for Line 1 West Ring Line is completed, it's named "Pisces Pond". Finishing this station made the construction progress of Episode 1 stepped forward for a big step.
Pisces Pond Station is Nazca Railway Los Sengas Division's first station to use a horoscope name as the name, and in the whole Nazca Railway development history, there are 2 stations using horoscope names, one of them is Pisces Pond Station in Los Sengas Division; the other one is in the "Gemini Sword Station" in Wardring Line, Terracept Division. In "Pisces Pond Station", using this horoscope name is because the lakes next to the station site look like fishes, and they are very close together, making it like the Pisces horoscope, also the area is not developed yet, so it got this name. Because Pisces Pond Station is located in a desert, NR especially used sandstone as the main texture of the station main structure.
Pisces Pond Station is the 2nd pure elevated station in Los Sengas Division, all structures of the station don't rely on the landscape nearby, same as "Greenrock Hill Station", is a separated building. The station structure can be separated into 2 floors, and from up to down they are respectively:
The platforms of Pisces Pond Station are elevated, connecting bridges on both ends. This station uses an island platform design, carrying the inner and outer ring of West Ring Line: South platform is for the inner ring; North platform is for the outer ring. Platforms use the standard length, 204m to build, supporting the 9-cars trains of NR. Also, the platforms of this station use Classic PSDs, to make the indoors area to be opened. Except that, there is a siding in next to each platform, allowing trains to pass through the station with a high speed, or to stop there temporary. There is a turnout entering the sidings in the 2 ends of the station, to arrange trains conveniently.
The concourse of Pisces Pond Station is below the platforms, the landscape and the height of the concourse are the same, so passengers don't need to use stairs or elevators to exit or enter the station. There are 3 stairs and 2 elevators connecting the concourse and platforms. There is an oval patio between the concourse and platforms, to add the sense of space of 2 levels. The 2 elevators are in the middle of the oval patio. There are 2 gate areas, they're on the same level, mainly in the center of the floor, there is a mini gate area to the west of the concourse level, with a few gates. This mini gate area only has 1 stairs connecting to the platforms, so if passengers need to take the elevator, do not use this gate area; All non-gate areas are connected, pedestrians can use this station as a pedestrian walkway, entering and exiting different exits. All NR basic and traditional concourse facilities are put inside the large gate area, including the station teleport. There are 5 exits in Pisces Pond Station, 3 of them heads south, and the other 2 heads north.
For the tracks, as the previous completed station, "High Approach Station" is located in the underground according to the landscape, the tracks between High Approach Station and Pisces Pond Station has half of it underground, following the mesa near High Approach Station, and back to elevated when approaching the nearest hill to Pisces Pond. Elevated part are a pair of straight tracks, before entering the station from the east, there is a double turnout, for trains to cut lines.

Did you said "screenshots"?
Yes, of course.
Nazca likes typing words so he has totally written over 150k words for this Division reports. Therefore, you will get bored with this easily if I don't post any images. However, he took over 1000 screenshots of all the stations that he has built, so I need to choose the suitable for you.
Nazca Railway builds stations both over the ground and underground. Also, every station has its unique design of its structure, shape and colors.
This is a classic-design elevated station: (Pisces Pond Station)
This is a station built exactly on the ground (Cyan Loop Station):
This is an underground station (Seat River Station, spectator's view):
Nazca has also built stations in an island, He called it "Island Station", Los Sengas currently has 23 of them (Hatace Island Station, spectator's view), most of them are in irregular shape:
There are record-breaking stations Nazca builds for, breaking record of course, one of the examples is the "Highest Platform of Nazca Railway", East Margin Station platform at y = 115.
Everyone knows a station consists of several features: Platform for boarding and alighting; Concourse for passengers' service; Passageways to link the different part of a station etc.
Nazca Railway Los Sengas Division has over 290 platforms and its standard length is 204 blocks, although Nazca Railway does not use any mod or plugin to link the minecarts together, Nazca considers this size very much, letting him to have more space to design the station. In addition, all platforms MUST feature Platform Screen Doors or Automatic Platform Gates before releasing them (well, there are some exceptions). All these doors are researched and developed by himself. In this Division, various type of PSDs and APGs are developed into different situations:
1. Classic Platform Safety Doors series
One of the most frequently used PSDs in NR, but this is only for the platform with high ceiling. There is no Gate version of Classic.
2. Basic Platform Safety Doors series
Second most frequently used PSD series, the notable difference between Classic and Basic is the position of the Platform lights, Classic has light on the top, while the Basic one on the floor, this is also a reason of its name is known as "Basic". Basic PSD has the most sub-types among other series such as:
a. Basic Platform Screen Doors (Sava Canyon Station)
b. Basic Automatic Platform Gates (Flask West Station)
c. Basic Heightened Platform Screen Doors For higher ceiling design, but not ideal for Classic (White Margin Station)
d. Basic Inverted Platform Screen Doors Designed for "irremovable" obstacles at the ceiling (Inthree Island Station)
3. Liquid Platform Safety Doors series
You can call it a sub-type of Classic because it uses very similar design of Classic PSDs, but there is no redstone circuit under the platforms for me to put water beneath them.
4. Aerial Platform Safety Doors series
In fact, this is the Platform Gate version of Liquid PSDs and double-inverted version of Basic PSDs, that's why I need to make this one individual. Design for overground platform with extremely limited width.
Platform Screen Door version (Deepond Island Station)
Automatic Platform Gate version (Miner North Station, despite this one has no visual difference with Basic APGs)
5. Open Platform Safety Doors series
This one was developed very very recently, for some.... unforeseen situation for using extreme design of Platform Screen Doors, so this one is not for mass construction. (East Margin Station again)
I don't know there will be more type in the future though, Nazca makes new design for proper use only.
Nazca Railway Station concourse has a different design to other the players or the real-life one, Nazca Railway was originated in some sort of survival mode world for players to transport and to provide survival mode service for them. Since all kinds of service (including railway transport) in Nazca Railway is 100% free of charge, concourse survival mode infrastructures are quite important for players. These infrastructures are known as "Basic Infrastructure".
(Upwell Sand Station)
Moreover, Los Sengas Division is not built in a survival mode world, so Nazca Railway needs to erect some utilities to make the station more modernize. Lavatories, Cafe, Station Control Room and Station Map are new to Los Sengas Division so that Nazca Railway needs to put them into existing station, and this is what I am doing now and is now completed.
Station Control Room example controls the PSDs, exit and inter-station teleportation for staff only (The Three Pass Station)
Cafe, known as "Los Sengas Coffee" for decoration only (Sava Coast Station)
Station Map provides the terrain of the vicinity, if that station has overground structures (Edward Island Station)
One exclusive feature for Nazca Railway is the souvenir challenge. This idea was inspired by a player who wanted to take a photo at every single Nazca Railway station. After that, Nazca decided to design a unique item at every station but the players would not be easy to find it. Before a player receives the station souvenir, he/she needs to complete the challenge set by Nazca. Different station has different challenge such as parkour, question&answer, hidden buttons, racing, multiple player coop etc. Some are easy and some are difficult.
The known hardest challenge is the Upwell Sand Station souvenir challenge player voted it for about 16.5 stars out of 5 stars in difficulty
Connecting railways is essential for constructing a railway system, Nazca Railway implemented the standards of railways strictly (I mean, very strictly) to unify the design in different places.
Bridges: 5 meters for single lane, rail at the center between the glass blocks, between the glass pane, if the bridges are near to the surface, glass pane changes to stone wall. 4n + 1 meters wide of multiple rail parallel unless junctions. Minimum height between bridges is 5 meters. (somewhere near Wativer Station)
Ballast: Least frequently used by Nazca Railway because I use bridges and tunnels most of the time, but when encounter some large flatland, using it will be more efficient. (somewhere near Metro Spring Station)
Tunnels: Similar design to bridges, just the block of iron covers the entire part of the railway. Same width and height principle to the bridges so that they can convert to each other without unnecessary modification. (somewhere near Grass Crack Station, spectator's view)
Number Sign: An ordinary Nazca Railway Line is over 10km, some are even longer (West Ring Line, a.k.a. Line 1 has 57 km), for every 100 meters, there is a number sign displaying the number of the position, to indicate the line position when something need to be report somewhere middle of the track. These signs can be negative and 0-centered. (somewhere near South Bay Station)
Track Pattern: Strictly sticking to Nazca Railway's standards in normal tracks. For every 20 meters of rail, 17 of them are normal followed by 1 detector and 2 powered rail, known as "Powered-rail Distance PrD". In special situation like the rail between the junction, these standards are not applied here. (somewhere near Peckern Forest Station)
Not only structures of track has standards, there are rules to follow when I building them, first of all:
Direction: Los Sengas is a left-handed driving city, such that trains in Nazca Railway is riding on the left. The photo below, there are 3 tracks, the leftmost one is heading inside the tunnel, the middle one is coming out from the tunnel while the right one (not the curved) is bi-direction. (somewhere near Internal Sea East Station)
Slope: All tracks in Nazca Railway must follow the slope of 1 to 10, which every 10 meters raise or sink 1 meter, although this may not follow the real-life slope (too steep), suitable enough for Minecraft in my point of view. (also somewhere near Internal Sea East Station)
Soft-turning: Before some railroad connects to a station, especially some island platforms, the horizontal position of the track may need to be adjusted, soft-turning will be used most of these cases. These lines are curve-like. (Greenrock Hill Station)
Hard-turning: Some sharper angles are also used by Nazca Railway, if the direction of the platforms are different that using soft-turning will greatly reduces the speed of the minecarts. These hard-turning is using 45 degrees-turning. (somewhere near Kaling Channel Station)
There are 3 station classes in Los Sengas Division, like a title of a player:
Station: Obvious class name for a station, and is mostly seen. Los Sengas Division has 94 of them.
Checkpoint: Larger scale of a station, mainly for researching new technologies and features, it is also an important place for public transport interchange. Los Sengas Division has 1 checkpoint.
Terminal: Rarely seen in Nazca Railway since it must be well planned for different types of railway and multiple Standard Railway lines, otherwise it will be useless easily. Metropolis Terminal is the Terminal in Los Sengas Division.
Rover Down Checkpoint, the only Checkpoint-class station in Los Sengas Division (for now):
The first station built in Los Sengas, the first Terminal in Los Sengas and the only Terminal in Los Sengas, not to mention its size. This is the center of Nazca Railway in this city and influenced the development of the city greatly. It is divided into several parts:
Terminal Front Yard Approach: the southern entrance of the greater Terminal area, with server and Nazca Railway flag.
Terminal Front Yard Pavilion: also known as the spawn of that world, the center of the front yard.
Terminal Front Yard Pool: A giant spire with falling water, flowing into the 3 pools to the south. Each pool has over 150 meters long.
Terminal Approach: Before the passengers enter the ground entrance of the Terminal, there is a bus terminal and a multistory parking lot, built by other administrators, so they literally are not owned by Nazca Railway.
Terminal Front Yard QR Code:
Terminal Calendar: the archive of the development of Nazca Railway.
Terminal Main Building Ground Concourse: the Terminal Control Tower, controls Phase I and Phase II Platforms.
There are 12 platforms and 13 sidings below the Ground Concourse, then there are a total of 25 tracks in parallel in north-south direction.
Platform 1 to 4: Line 1, West Ring Line
Platform 5, 8: Line 3, Urban Line
Platform 6, 7: Line 3X, Urban Express
Platform 9 to 12: Line 2, East Ring Line
Metropolis Terminal Phase II is the expended part of the Phase I main building, which all new structures were built underground. Including a new Interchange concourse, 12 new platforms, 13 new sidings for east-west direction and a large scale underground walkway connects 67 exits.
3 new lines were established when expanding the Terminal:
Platform 13 to 16: Line 4, New Edward Line
Platform 17 to 20: Line 5, Stadium Line
Platform 21 to 24: Line 6, Arcgo Line
Interchange Concourse: The interchange concourse has all the staircases and elevators connected to the existing 12 platforms and newly-built 12 platforms. It also contains 4 large exits for the underground walkway Red, Yellow, Green and Blue Zone. The Terminal infrastructure and service are located here as well.
Underground Walkway: The largest underground walkway network Nazca Railway had ever built. It consists of 4 walkway zones, Red, Yellow, Green and Blue Zones connecting to different location of the downtown within one station length. The walkway has 67 exits, some are staircases and some are elevators.
This is the expansion of the Metropolis Terminal after Season 1. All expansion content are located underground and currently only connecting to Phase II's interchange concourse. The main purpose of Phase III is to prepare for multi-class railway service in the future and planning the development of the Veloduct.
Grand NR System Map: The Map of Nazca Railway can be accessed here, if you don't have a internet version. This map shows all the existing Standard Railway stations of Nazca Railway Los Sengas Division, and its distance from the Terminal.
Veloduct Concourse and Platform: Veloduct uses the same system of Nazca Railway, but I need to separate them in order to group them, especially in a Terminal that contains a lot of platforms. 4 new Veloduct lines are planned initially:
Platform 25, 26: Alpha Line,
Platform 27, 28: Bravo Line,
Platform 29, 30: Charlie Line,
Platform 31, 32: Delta Line
The Concourse are located above the platforms and introducing the Nazca Railway first Food Court.
Sava Light Transit Platform: Since the size of Metropolis Terminal is getting larger, we need some mover within the Terminal. Sava Light Transit can take this job, and it can extend to downtown vicinity at the same time, so that passengers can travel the downtown and the Terminal more easily.
Nazca Railway is built in traditional way, yet sometimes Nazca need to add some "depot"s as a decoration to make the railway "looks" more "realistic". There are 2 depots he has built in Los Sengas.
This is the first depot he built in Los Sengas, it is located in Katadelphia (obviously). Before the second depot was built, this was the main depot among all lines of Nazca Railway. The area of this depot is 11.6 Hectares, with 29 tracks. It can store 504 real-life train compartments at once.
The Track Diagram of Katadelphia Depot:
Miner Bay Depot:
The second depot built in Los Sengas, but it is not located in the mainland. However, this is the second largest depot Nazca has ever built, 17 Hectares. It has 42 tracks and can store 630 real-life size train compartments.
The Track Diagram is as follows:
From Stations to Depots, from bridges to tunnels, Nazca built railways for Minecraft for over 1500 days. These are still a lot, a lot, yes, a lot of content I would like to share with you but I don't have the time for now, since the next project of the railway is coming. I dare say this railway project, when it is started, there seems to have no end point. I hope you all like Nazca's work, thanks for reading!
