The Shadow Moon Steam Railway was built around 3,000 BBY, at the request of the citizens of the Shadow Moon, to provide a quick, safe link between the capital city of Kor'so'nary and Expan'son City, a distance of around 6960 kilometers. It was also solicited by the Prime Ministers of both cities, with the Prime Minister of Expan'son City saying that it would be a great source of income, and help build up relations with the Kor'so'nary Republic.
The 6960 km railway took about 10 years to build. The majority of those years consisted of figuring out how to build a station at Water City, which was eventually solved with an above-ground station that had bridges connecting to the city. Also, the railway was constantly sabotaged by thieves and insurgents who wanted to use the materials made especially for the Railway for their own uses (once they stole one of the locomotives, leading to a one-day, 4,000 km chase all over the railway before the locomotive ran out of fuel and the insurgents captured). Eventually however, the railway was opened, to great fanfare, by the Prime Ministers of Kor'so'nary and Expan'son City.
