The news section is updated.

Gotham City Rail Announces Satellite Tracking and Communications System

To better serve our customers, GCR has completed its transition to a satellite tracking and communications system (STCS). Using cutting edge ultra high frequency technology, STCS will give GCR the real-time ability to track exact positioning of all its trains. This will allow for more accurate scheduling and should increase GCR's already impressive safety record.

[edit] July 3, 2008

An update is added to the previous news article:

ALERT: The STCS will undergo initial fine-tuning of its software on the evening of July 8th. This routine maintenance may result in temporary intermittent system delays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. - C. Craston, Sr. Elec. Engineer, GCR

Chuck Craston, Sr. was discovered to be the real name of Batfan73 from Citizensforbatman.org's message boards. This would later be used to find an invoice on Maroniimports.com.

After the countdown ended on Whysoserious.com/Overture, Gothamcityrail.com was "Jokerized," along with nearly every other website in the game.

[edit] References

The Wayne Central-Narrows line being closed is a reference to Batman Begins, when a train heading from the Narrows to Wayne Tower was destroyed by Batman and Jim Gordon to stop the flow of the Fear Toxin.
