« on: December 20, 2017, 07:02:53 PM »
BNC was founded in 1800, serving the population of Bay region.


The first investment was made in fish transport, from Winslow to Kenswick



Then, the the company invested in buses in Totton and Lowesoft Regions.




Totton still has traces of an old medieval wall, but only a bit and a disconnect tower survived.

Some years later, the bus service was extented to the left side of the rivers San Luca and San Viegas. To connect the West and East side, two bridges were built by the company in 1811.


In 1817, the first railway was inaugurated, running a coal train between Beaconsfield mine and Fordingbridge. The company wants soon to expand the service to several trains a day, but meanwhile a signaling system needs to be chosen.






The comnpany is also laying tracks between several cities, so when the first passenger carriages are ready to the public, the railways are already built, since it takes time.
