Schnellekabine

Schnellekabine are a type of transportation method rarely used. They are the mechanical variant of the Brainways, although they have far more locomotive and architectural restrictions. Despite this, they are the primary mode of travel for organisms of the Higher Caste.

Description

Schnellekabine consist of many interlocking cabs, which sit upon the backs of large millipedes. These millipedes run at high pace on tracks, which are magnetized poles which connect to the legs of these millipedes via magnetism. They are usually elevated hundreds of feet into the air by pillars, although in some lesser Schnellekabine railroad lines, they are directly in contact with the ground. These tracks are known as Railroads.

They connect all points of interest for the Higher Caste, ie government buildings and the like. They are usually gilded with glistening metals, and highly decorated with symbols of Power. Although some are dull and plane, made of simple and angular metals.

The largest Schnellekabine station begins at Vespiary, and charges thousands of miles into the Outer Reaches. It is heavily defended, and drab in appearance. Being made of dull grey metal in angular architecture. Although its purpose is heavily safeguarded, some suspect it leads to the Emperor’s palace or some other hallowed ground.
