I have built a train station in the "redstone-ready" superflat world preset, and I was wondering if I could change the world type so all new chunks are normal world chunks, instead of superflat chunks. I don't want the train to just run through a superflat world, it is too boring.

Is this possible? If so, how would one go about doing it?

@Allov That's not quite what I wanted, but it did give me the idea for using NBTEdit, which has solved my problem. – elijaheac Dec 30 '12 at 17:30

I solved this by editing my world's level.dat with NBTExplorer, changing the variable generatorType from flat to default.
