Great app for train lovers

My 3 year old son loves building wooden train tracks and building long trains to go on them. This app is perfect for him to play when those aren't available. He loves watching the long trains he builds go around while also being able to control the speed, track changes, and scenery.

Great game for me

I download apps for myself. Like another review said, this app is for any age. feels and looks like a real train. I don't know if it sounds like a real train. but anyway, you made the right train app for this 14 year old.
It seems like almost everyone enjoys it. nice job.

Great game

I love that it's not just a train going around a track. The kids have to flip the switches on the tracks to move the trains to other tracks & pick stuff up.
