Finkyáse (fiɴꜜkjase) is the second largest city in Kojo, situated in the south west of the country at the Sound of Pa. The city is often seen as an anti-pole to the country's primate city and capital, Pyingshum.

History

The origins of the city are lost in history. The oldest remains of permanent settlement date back to the first century, but since the river discharging into the ocean here is the largest (and one of only few reliable year-round) source of surface drinking water for most of the region, it is very likely that the area had been settled way before that. Combined with the access to the ocean, the city always had been the trading centre for the vast but sparsely populated hinterland.

Since 457, the city was continuously seat of a hereditary rule, until the Kojolese unification in 1668. However, despite then technically being part of the Kojolese Kingdom under the Pyilser Krun'a Dynasty ruling from Pyingshum, the city and much of today's Fóskiman-iki was de-facto governed by the De Croix ("De Kwá) family, which had assisted the Pyilser Krun'a dynasty to overthrow the previous rulers in the area and were in return handed limited yet far reaching control of the area. With the democratic revolution in 1834 the family was forced to step down and had their lives spared. The De Kwá family is one of few former noble families still existing in modern Kojo.

In the middle of the 19th century the city experienced rapid growth and became a centre of the industrial revolution in western Kojo, making use of it's strategic location at the sea, the mining that took place in the hinterland, and its position as a gateway to Ataraxia. The first railway in Kojo operated here, between the edge of the old city centre and the coastal resort town Sólaeiman, less than 4 km south. A new harbour to the south west of the historic city centre was built, so ships from the sea didn't have to go through the estuary of the river anymore. The city grew rapidly around the historic core and the new harbour, but the sprawl was largely unregulated and poor hygiene conditions combined with horrible traffic made the city a very difficult place to live in. Additionally, the need for a central railway station became more and more apparent, as up to this point there were separate stations for east- and westbound railways.

The city drafted a master plan for westward expansion, based on a large grid pattern and including a generously built new railway terminus for long-distance trains. This, combined with its standardised building footprint, coins the city scape till today.

In the early 1960's the city built new port facilities in the west, and the old and new marina in the city centre today are only used for recreational use, ferries and cruise ships.

AFZH

Ántibes-Finkyáse-Zúkshi Hyengzidō, short AFZH, is a private suburban railway that was formed in 2001 when the formerly separate Ántibes-Finkyáse Hyengzidō and Butenki Hyengshō Sanan merged. The railway owns and runs trains on two railway lines, one from Ántibes towards Finkyáse terminating either in the (old) Ántibes re Chezi or in the newer underground terminus Chin Ántibes re Chezi. The other lines comes from Zúkshi (Fóskiman h.) and runs parallel to KHS tracks, until following a path closer to the coast after Pinyalsul, from where it heads to the terminus Zúkshire Chezi next to the old city centre.

Stopping patterns for the different train types on the Ántibes branch and the Zúkshi branch can be found underneath. As KHS's KC and KCP trains to the east run parallel to the Zúkshi branch for large portions, their schedule is shown as well, despite running on different tracks and being operated by a different company.

There are no night services on the Zúkshi branch, however KHS runs night trains on its largely parallel route on Friday and Saturday.

The first trains usually depart at 5 o'clock am, with the last trains departing around 22:30.
Night services commence at 23:00 and depart every full hour until 4:00. On the Ántibes line, there is one additional rapid express train on both rapid expresses during the morning rush hour.

Long term plans include transforming Kū Ántibes re Chezi to an underground stop, and to consolidate the services in such a way that all trains can then continue to Chin Ántibes re Chezi. These plans are still in earöy planning stage, and might be carried out once the Ésubān connects the underground terminus to the central railway station. In the very long term the two AFZH lines might be connected either through Zúkshi re Chezi or an underground route through the old town's harbour area, but feasibility is yet to be proven.

Regional rail (Kojo Hyengshō Sanan)

KHS offers regional trains connections on the newer, northern rail branches, most of which also have commuter lines for frequent services between neighbouring towns and the city centre.
