The KCR Tozai Line is a rapid mass transit line in Pangaea, WolvHaven, owned and operated by KCR. When completed, the line will run between Iceland in east Pangaea and Western Peninsula International Airport station (formerly known as Skeleton Spawner station) in west Pangaea. As of 2021, the line is 6.3 km long, the longest of all public rail lines in Pangaea (2021). The Tozai Line is colored KCR Blue on maps, diagrams and signboards. Its station codes are prefixed with "T".

Overview

True to its name (literally "East-West Line"), the Tozai line connects east and west Pangaea. The route starts from Western Peninsula International Airport, heads east, passes the Middle Sea to the north of the world's spawn point and terminates at Iceland station in east Pangaea. It is the first KCR line built, is completely built by hand, and uses 31-meter long platforms. All stations are equipped with a line information panel. The line features through service with HWPR at Western Peninsula International Airport, providing an effective way to get to spawn from both west and east Pangaea.

History

Aqua Line

In 2018, KCR builder KC_0072015 decided to build a railway connecting spawn and his home in the west. This railway was initially known as the Aqua Line. When first opened, the Aqua Line featured a single lane as KC_0072015 felt lazy and the amount of resources needed was too high. A few months later, KC_0072015, now acting under KCR, expanded to Iceland in east Pangaea. This gave KCR enough reason to rename the line to its current Tozai Line designation, as the extension now connected east Pangaea to west Pangaea.

Renovation and conversion to 2-lane operation

In 2021, KCR began renovating the entire length of the Tozai Line, realigning some sections, rebuilding stations, replacing the old 14-car E140 Series with the higher-capacity E200 Series train, and crucially converting to a 2-lane railway in response to commuter complaints.

Phase 2

In summer 2021, KCR began extending Tozai Line from Spawn N to Iceland, adding 2 new station, Nakahigashi Machi and terminus Iceland. The construction is ended in 1st September. On top of that, Next Train Information Board is installed in all KCR stations.
