Given that the line runs straight into the scrapyard I wouldn't say it'd have been a passenger railway line, more than likely a freight line for loading/unloading of scrap metals but it's hard to be sure when the line starts from a generic building.

 

As for the beach, I'd always presumed they were vehicle tracks. I opened VC's map in Moomapper and found the tracks which are named "od_tracks" however the texture name for them is "beachtyretrackbs" which unfortunately means they're not railway lines 😛

I'm not trying to sh*t on your parade or anything but generally the textures are named after what they are, if it says tyretracks then its tyre tracks.

 

As for the "rusty train", that's a bit ambiguous - yes, it could be a rusty train such as a tank car:

However it could also just as easily be a tank truck:

Given that the scrapyard is composed primarily of cars, I'd lean towards it being a tank truck.

Miami in real life had a metro around the time VC is set. Its a shame VC didn't have this considering that III had two forms of train but as VC was made in just one year I'll give Rockstar a pass.

Why would they be a railway, what purpose would a beach railway that goes in a literal loop serve? I'm all for speculation or ideas if they have some sort of basis in reality but there's absolutely no even remotely tangible evidence to indicate the beach had a railway.

How old are you OP? Do you realize trains are VERY heavy and you need a really solid ground in order to lay tracks on top of it? Tracks on the beach make zero sense. Those are simply a path for vehicles. Ocasionally there are police cars driving on them, which further proves this.

 

This is what happens when you just want to "contribute" for the sake of it.

Ok, show me that train file. And Please don't say it's 'airtrain.txd' because it's not.
