There's a railway leading to Edmonton in Canada that stops one hex to the east- unless my map is corrupted anyway. I've found a couple of units very...............very....slowly making their way through this forest after strat moving from Eastern Canada areas to Vancouver- hitting the end of the railway and appear to be working their way through the forest.

Does everyone else have a forest hex immediately to the east of Edmonton?
Anyone else found units strat moving getting "stuck" going this route?

Never seen it, seems like something you should post in the tech forum.

That "forest" is a curiosity in real life.  I'm writing this from Edmonton.  The hex should really be - at worst - swamp terrain; and more likely be clear farmland.

On the game map the railroad line is obscured by the city name tag.  I presumed it still ran through the hex.

Next thing you'll be telling us is that the Edmund Fitzgerald was torpedoed by the Japanese.

Thanks for the replys all- I may have jumped the gun RE the units in the area being stuck then- I admit I only just noticed them there- hadn't watched them over a number of turns (it's PBEM so bit harder to quickly test if they were stuck).
Cheers,

Daniel

If you press R-key, you see if railroad actually goes through the forest or not.

In AE the "Y" key is used to show railways, and there is indeed a railway in that forest hex East of Edmonton, even though the map art for it is covered by the base name.

My first thought was it represents the wooded terrain of Elk Island National Park. I have no idea when the area became a national park though. Either way, that's my guess as to why it's wooded.
