Melrose was a Mayor town founded and created by Martii_Scots01 in the New World. It was located at  P13  Melrose of the MRT Plains Line. Martii_Scots01 put the town up for sale in 2016. The town was purchased by _Kastle and the town has since ceased to exist, with the land now being a part of Covina.

The were 3 districts which were City Centre, Civic Services District and Residential District. There were also districts in planning which are Culture District, Entertainment Area, Shopping District, and Industrial District. Other districts which were in planning were planned to open after Martii_Scots01 received Senator.


Melrose is a town created by Martii_Scots01 which is currently at the 13th (unlucky for some!) station of the Plains Line ( P13  Melrose). Over the first few days of Gamma, staff were appointed; these early staffers were: jamess2912, hntredtie, TechnologyPro, Kottlewing and allifarki. The staff got shuffled one day, after allifarki got a 7-day tempban. So, RLcrafters was appointed to staff as [Councillor] to the town. After that, allifarki has re-joined City Staff, but in a new position, [Minister For Transit]. On the 29th October 2014, Martii_Scots01 promoted to the [Councillor] rank and Melrose became a [Councillor] ranked city! However, jamess2912 had to resign due to IRL reasons on the 30/11/2014 and so the position of Dep Mayor was took up by allifarki. The Minister for Transit position then was gave to Technological99 following several interviews with candidates. Unfortunately, on the 4th of January 2015, TechnologyPro decided to leave the server and decided to give up his Melrose City Staff position. On the 06/01/2015, stringle55 became the new Powerman after a relatively brief interview process. Then, on the 16th January 2015, thanks to chiefbozx and _MajorMagpie, Melrose was promoted to the [Mayor] rank! On the 17/01/2015, it was announced that hntredtie was going become the new Deputy Mayor of Melrose and that jamess2912 was going to return to the staff team as Chancellor! Allifarki was then removed from the staff team due to his inactivity. Now, Melrose has now becoming better and better from time to time.

The Concept

The concept for this town is that it will feature builds which use many different materials. The town will be separated into districts; this shall be explained in the Districts section.

Government Policies

Here is a list of Melrose Policies:

The 1,000 Hour Clause

City Centre

City Centre was the very first district in Melrose. It features some buildings that are government related, some franchises and some other buildings. The builds will be like city hall, franchises, restaurants or even a Model Railway Club! All can currently build in this district!

  • 04/01/2015: Unfortunately, TechnologyPro has decided to leave the server and has therefore decided to give up his Melrose City Staff post. Me, Martii_Scots01, and the rest of the Melrose City Staff team would like to wish Techie the best wherever he goes and we hope to see him to come back to MRT one day. We would also like to thank you for all your contributions to our great city.
  • 05/01/2015: Tax policy has been removed due to lack of interest in houses/apartments due to old prices. Prices for apartments and houses as well as plots have dropped. See Residential District section for more info!
  • 06/01/2015: Congratulations to stringle55 who has became the new Powerman on the Melrose City Staff team . We look forward to seeing him on the staff team here in Melrose.
  • 07/01/2015: The long slow journey towards the Mayor rank is almost over… Melrose Grand Hotel's outer structure is now complete. We hope that MailMelrose and Melrose Fire Station shall be completed this week. This means the current aim is to have the Mayor rank by the 20th of January.
  • 10/01/2015: We may have Mayor status on Sunday. This is due to the early completion of MailMelrose. I, Martii, shall now start work on the Melrose Fire Station, while I get other players to design MGH rooms and get allifarki to build the kitchens, cafès and lounges at MGH. I shall also be working the Car Park at MGH.
  • 11/01/2015: We may have Mayor status by the 18th rather than 20th now. This is due to Baron requesting that I build 5 more builds. The Melrose Fire Station was completed today and we now have a build schedule. You can find this on the wiki underneath the News section. In other news, hntredtie is set to become the Deputy Mayor of Melrose due to allifarki's inactivity... Congratulations to him. allifarki shall stay on the staff team, taking up hntredtie's old position of Chancellor. The change shall officially be made on Tuesday. We are still looking for people to decorate MGH rooms, contact me if interested. And finally, as soon as we get the Mayor rank, the MCR cross-city line shall be extended to Park station and construction on the MCR Entertainment and Civic Services Line shall start.. The first section will run from City Hall to Melrose Grand Hotel station.
  • 16/01/2015: We have now been officially promoted to [Mayor]! Thanks to all who helped this dream come true and to _MajorMagpie, for endorsing me and to chiefbozx for endorsing me, renaming P13 to Melrose and doing a dynmap render shortly after!
