The Fourth Road was a passageway measuring 30 feet across and 15 feet high. It was located in the northern section of Thorbardin and ran east and west, turned to northeast and southwest and returned to east and west. The road itself was like every road in Thorbardin, smooth and tunneled. It had two identical pairs of rails running on it. These rails were placed 3 feet below the floor level. On each side of the tracks there was a wide walking area and in the middle of the tracks there was a 6 foot wide raised platform that ran in between them. This road also contained a steam driven engine, which ran on the tracks. Unlike the other tracks that used horses or manual labor to push carts, this road used a specialized engine to move them. This road ran from Theibardin to the West Warrens. The total length of this road was 3 miles long.
