History

Merger

On 2015, an plan was proposed to merge the Metropolis Station and the East Fuka Station as they are too close to Fuka.

Historically, these stations are operated by Harmony Rail Transit and is completely separate from Fuka Station.

This proposal involves making a tunnel to link between all stations, then eventually unifying the paid area and all electronic systems.

While the plan was rejected by Harmony Rail Transit and Rigel Corp, the government stated that it could benefit citizens in the long run.

After further negotiations, all 3 stations are merged as of July 2015.

However, no further action has been taken besides the name being changed as of 2022

In 2016, a new Metropolis Station was later plotted further away from Fuka, serveral lines that were serving the Old Metropolis station started migrating away to the new Metropolis Station.


The Southern Line would operate as branches, with one train going to Metropolis and one train going to Fuka.

The Metropolis Line will only serve the New Metropolis Platform, however the old platform is still being used as an Emergency Platform for Freight Trains.


The North East Line has also ceased operations, leaving the old Metropolis station useless.


As of 2022, only the upcoming Nam Tung Line will utilize 2 Old Metropolis Platforms.
