Recent relative quiet

Other than the huge Valocea transit history post (split into two blog posts), I haven’t done much here (and even that post was worked on for nearly a month). And I am really far behind on the pony ep reviews (though now that the season finale has aired, all I have to do to “catch up” is finish reviewing the remaining eps of season 4 before season 5 begins, which won’t exactly be overly difficult). The reason for this is simply that there has been WAY too much going on, from serious family issues to an office move at my work. So I plan to put up more whenever I can, it’s just that with everything going on, I don’t have as much time or energy as normal, so sometimes a lot of time goes by without me working on blog posts (or stories, which I’m trying to find more time for as well) very much.

But I’m not giving up on any of it!

Valocea Project – history of public transit during the late 20th and early 21st centuries (part 2)

Below is part 2 of the history of public transport in Valocea. Find part 1 here. This half of the post contains a few links at various points to pages detailing some of the transit vehicles mentioned (and in one case, detailing a referenced train station). These links serve to give the reader a slightly better visual concept of what is being discussed. At some point in the (hopefully near) future, I’ll be putting together a post which focuses on vehicles and stations, describing them much more extensively and featuring a large number of links to images and information pages (basically, this future post will do for transit vehicles and stations what the Lennvale post did for that city).

Valocea Project – history of public transit during the late 20th and early 21st centuries (part 1)

Following on from this post, in which I described what the character of Lennvale as a city is, we now turn our attention to Valocea’s public transit. This post (which is presented in two parts, because it’s REALLY long) details out the history of Valocea’s ground mass transit from the 1960s to the present. It gives an overview of the general nature of transit during each decade, focusing on significant developments, though it generally does not go into great detail about each specific era (which would require many posts of this size). As mentioned above, this is quite long – mainly I just wanted to get all of this information written down somewhere so it wouldn’t all just be vague notions in my head. Of course, I figured I might as well post it here, too, despite how huge it is, so without further ado, here we go…
