Nice on iPad

Very decent sim. Good graphics. Has a bit of a learning curve to understand controls which are smooth but sluggish. Icons are a bit cryptic . “Lite” version is free and I couldn’t find a better value even with its limitations. Unfortunately, like real model layouts, this gets boring with time. Nothing to do but roll down the track and avoid collisions. Would be better with some “objectives”. That being said, it’s still a very fun app and a good way to spend time without enduring stress of smashing, shooting, destroying and otherwise being killed.

Good for main lines, wish it had yard spotting

This is a fun app to run trains, learn about switch control, etc. I see each update adds more, much of what the users are asking for. There are two app features I would be willing to pay for:
1) Lay your own track, or import a track into the app' and
2) ability to drop off and pick up rolling stock. I realize there is a max consist size, but it would be nice to be able to drop off the loads at various industries or yards, then pick then up later.

Great, but have some requests...

This is a terrific app and should be lots of fun for RR'ers. The developers did a really good job.

I would give it 5 stars if :

-- You made all the layouts *brighter* ! They are far too dark and gloomy, and sometimes even hard to see.

-- Mark the trains somehow, so you could know which is which. (Right now, you can tell only by changing the speed or by squinting at the locomotive type, either of which is hard to see.)
