When you're done with your locomotive masterpiece you can save it to your device, share it with the family - or perhaps print it out for a prize place on the family fridge.


Easily add color to your train. Just tap a color from the palette and then tap your train.

- ZOOM (iPhone/iPod Touch only)
Easily zoom in to color some of the smaller regions.

Browse a range of stickers and then tap to add to your train. Change your mind about a sticker? You can drag stickers to reposition them or just double-tap to delete.

Once you have customized a car or engine, you can add it to your full train and then rearrange and place your train cars as desired.

Customize your train and then with one tap, you can export your very own personal train for use with Build A Train.

Customize your train and select the train yard of your choice. Then with one tap, you can export your very own customized puzzle for use with Build A Train Puzzles.

You can save your train cars to your device library, easily send them to friends or print them out. Note: printing is supported for devices running iOS 4.2+ that are connected to AirPrint enabled printers.

Cute and easy

Fun little basic coloring of engines and the stickers are nice. Nice feature to be able to print via iPhoto . Add to train feature doesn't work - tap on the button and the app quits. Thought it might be my iPad since I had some issues but I got it fixed and it still does it. Would have given it 5 stars if that worked.

An Honest Review

I bought this game along with “Build-A-Train”, and importing trains works for me. If you have a device that’s the IOS 10 model or later, download both of them, and you’ll be fine. To be honest, this game is pretty solid, with easy-to-paint locomotives and cars, bright colors, and the ability to import your trains and railcars!
