RWA Railjet Release From Just Trains
Recently I discovered a new online game called Train Station 2. I initially found this on my fellow blogger Steve Boyko’s YouTube channel. I must admit the game is quite addicting, especially for a railfan/model railroader.
You start out in England, where you must collect coal and iron ore and build various tracks.
At your “station”, which is essentially the railroad’s HQ town, you can build factories to refine materials and build your town’s economy and population.
Here are a couple more screenshots from the England map.
While some trains only take a couple minutes to make their pickups and setoffs (although they just stop on the main to “load” and “unload” their cargos), some take up to an hour. This is where they make money. To speed up the trains you have to spend “gems”, and to get gems you either must meticulously acquire them one by one, or give them real world US dollars…
The next region after England is Germany. This offers similar scenarios, with some nice German and (interestingly) US prototype trains. After Germany is the USA, the region I’m looking forward to…
Among the US trains available in Germany (that of course I haven’t received from the “random” draws) are a UP Big Boy and an Erie L-1.
Unfortunately, the actual railroad logos and names can’t be used due to copyright issues.
Are you interested in more updates on the game? Will you check out the game, or are computer/phone games not your thing? Should I throw out the game so I’ll actually get work done on my layout? Let me know in the comments. -Harrison
