Just slap one together from the right colored pieces, include it in the set, boom, done.

How do you think they get all the equipment up the mountain?
And all the injured miners back down?

Mountain Police? What could be the "subplot"?

  • Those ubiquitous money thieves are hiding in the hills (most likely)
  • The mining theme operation is illegal.
  • Stopping speeding cars on those winding mountain roads; dangerous rock slides
  • Illegal logging - poaching spotted owls 
  • Moonshiners or drug labs
  • Hillbillies - 'nuff said. 
  • Mountain climbers without permits.
  • Plane or helicopter crash (irony) that only a helicopter can access. 
  • Camping outside of designated areas: Timmy is lost; menaced by bears or cougars; improper latrine; didn't pack out their trash; Jason or Blair Witch

It might be the police crew from "First Blood".

When I hear "mountain police" I think of forest police. If it were a winter theme (snow based), I'd have called the line "alpine police" (no pun intended).

I'm hoping this is a snow based police group. I'd love to see more winter themed buildings and vehicles.

I am disappointed. With mountain police they will not do riot units with pepper spray.

Moonshining miner hillbilly mountain campers poaching the Blair Witch's distant thrice removed Cousin Timmy's pet cougars out in Jason's neck of the woods, drug trafficking Olivia's meth lab, funding Stephanie's prostitute ring, and selling dope disguised as nuns.

Really don't understand why the Hospital theme isn't constantly running like police and fire. 

Maybe they don´t have enough level 5 certified helicopter designers.

Are we due for a new train station?

Maybe in 2hy 2018 as they should retire and rehash the passenger and cargo trains (HH is already done).

Maybe, just maybe, they will have new PF.
