In recent weeks the Moles have added more railway track and more railway stations on the east side of the log homes continent highlighted in blue on the map below. It’s not yet open to the public for rezzing trains. The wait is almost over.
My last blog post back in late October 2020 I posted that the Moles extended the railway line from SSPE1162 to SSP1165. Since then the railway line has expanded through the middle of the log homes continent going east then turning up north near the new recently opened Stilt homes regions highlighted in red squares.
There are now new railway stations, rez areas, signal points, victorian tunnels, bridges, railway line crossings and much more. The Moles have been working on this railway development since early 2020 and have done a great job going through the different Linden home theme styles.
The latest new railway line starts roughly from SSPE1125 all the way up to SSPE1111 where there is a big loop around. There is a new railway station in SSPE1111 and a train on the tracks nearby.
I believe this is the end of the railway line on the east side of the log homes continent for now. I will blog again if new changes happen next month.
It’s worth flying over the new railway line from one side to the other side of the log homes continent seeing what’s new. I think you will be amazed at all the latest developments.
It’s going to look really exciting when the railway track finally opens in the weeks/months ahead along with new Linden homes. I can’t wait to ride the new railway soon and I’m sure many can’t wait to rez trains too.
Great progress so far overall and I can’t wait to see what comes next throughout this new year.
During the last 12 hours or so it appears more Stilt Linden homes are being released to the public in Second Life along with Traditional, Houseboats, Victorian and Log homes. There is roughly 2.300 homes still unclaimed spread over 92 regions showing as Protected Land.
The fastest way of getting a Linden Home is through the Second Life land selection page. More homes will be released in the days and weeks ahead. For those wanting the new release of Stilt homes you have a choice of ones on water, land and on a pier.
Stay updated on the latest community discussion here.
The issue is still being looked at and hopefully it will be resolved very soon.
2pm SLT – Patch Linden has delayed the Stilt home regions release. See the post here.
An update on where we’re at with the Stilt home regions release. We tried with all of our might today to get them in to everyone’s hands that wants them. Sadly our plans were thwarted by unforeseen complications. We’re hoping to work through some more of this tomorrow, and I’ll be back with another update as quickly as possible!
Have a great evening and thank you for your patience with us as we work through these issues.

11.50am SLT – The operations team ran into issues with the test release of a single region and then tried a 2nd single region. Now they are trying to resolve issues before releasing the rest of the regions
11.36am SLT – Clamdigger & Gorgeous Aurelia Beach becomes the next regions to be released
We have a new Linden Homes release, this time featuring Stilt Homes and House Boats. There are 3900 Stilt Homes, and 552 House Boats in this release.
The stilt homes offer upscale living along the coasts of Bellisseria. Homes are raised on stilts, well above sea level, in the style of many shoreline homes in the Southeastern USA. Some homes are placed along or very near to the beach. Others are over water, attached to wooden piers. Others still are freestanding over water, only accessible by boat. Enjoy the luxury of a home on a full-sized 1024 sq m parcel and access to nearby shared public recreation areas.
You may choose any one of the four one-story or two-story styles from your house controller, regardless of where your stilt home parcel lies. Each has a large deck, where you can enjoy an evening meal or watch the waves. (Note: some land-based parcels may still have a small amount of water within the parcel lines, while some water/pier-based parcels may have a small amount of land in them.)
We hope you enjoy the new homes as we continue to grow the Bellisseria continent and community.
