To be named the Westeros Railway ?

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is purchasing a historic railway in New Mexico along with two others in the hopes of revitalizing it with entertainment options and cultural events.The rail line currently runs from Santa Fe , New Mexico to the town of Lamy and dates back to 1879, with some existing train carriages dating to the 1920s.

Martin and his partners offered several ideas for the railway’s restoration, including creating a shooting location for filmmakers.“There’s something about train travel that brings you back to a time that we assume was a simpler, more community-based time, long before the internet, before air travel, even before television,”   Catherine Oppenheimer, one of the partners making the purchase, said.
