    1. Grand Junction (Bus Terminal)

    Post  Victor on Wed Jul 16, 2014 2:53 pm

    Description:
    Nobody takes the bus anymore. Nobody good, that is. Only the dregs, and poor business men are forced to ride the dilapidated cattle cars into and out of New Oskana. The Grand Junction neighborhood is dominated by crumbling brick construction that is often smoke damaged. Even the one-way streets and highway on-ramps are pitted with decay, just like the people forced to live here . The whole place smells like diesel and bum piss, and the oil in the lingering smoke makes sure both of those smells travel with a person into other parts of town, in his nose and on his clothes.

    Background:
    The boarders of Grand Junction have moved several times since it was made a district in the 1920's. It was the construction of Island Buffalo Bus Terminal that solidified the boundaries of Grand Junction in the 30's. Breaking from tradition the Island Buffalo Bus Terminal was not connected to a rail station; instead it sought out a new kind of client, the wealthy business man who needed more flexibility in his travels. The large brownstone terminal would dominate the skyline well into the 60's. Led by the success of the Island Buffalo Bus Terminal, Grand Junction would reach its peek in the 50's and 60's. During this time Grand Junction was the way point for all visitors coming to or leaving New Oskana. The buses used to stream into Grand Junction from all points of the compass, full of bright-eyed tourists and hopeful businessmen with the Next Big Idea. With the 70's came the airport and the subway and the decline of Grand Junction as a transportation hub. Now, a handful of the brownstones in the neighborhood still have some of their Jazz Age grandeur about them, but most of the neighborhood has slid into apathetic neglect.

    2. Center Street Station (Rail Station)

    Post  Victor on Wed Jul 16, 2014 2:54 pm

    Description:
    A melting pot of business, pleasure, travelers, blue-collar and white-collar workers, and cultures; Center Street Station hosts a little bit of everything at any given time. Lawyers ride the elevated train to the rail station next to freight handlers; vacationing families board the coach cars while finance consultants travel first class. Center Street Station is the second most vital commuter center in town, the place from which interstate trains depart and the most traveled local transit route deploys. Central Street Station is cluttered and busy, but with the honest debris accumulated over the course of a business day. Scores of newsstands, fast-food joints, corner shops and street vendors all vie for attention here, seemingly without pause.

    Background:
    In many ways you can say that New Oskana grew up around Center Street Station. The rail line in New Oskana, like many other towns on the prairies, was the focal point of the city. All of the towns and cities in Saskatchewan thrived on both the people and the money these places brought to the community. Just like in the past this district is still the center of action for the city. If you need to find something it will have to come through here at some point. The past has not always been so good in Center Street though. The 1930's saw the place turn into a work camp where people needlessly constructed rail-lines and then moved them. The 40's and 50's saw the buses take over the major role of transportation while the ailing infrastructure of Center Street decayed. However, with the rise of farming you soon saw the comeback of the rail-yards as a shipping hub.
