Not bad if you could control your view

The view panning controls are absolutely horrible. it does not engage at first touch as far as any movement of the view. Then, like a too tightly wound spring releasing, the view movement accelerates and overshoots the mark! Trying to find the right touch duration for the desired amount of panning I am finding impossible to gauge. If you are zoomed in you spend all your time messing with the panning shooting all over the place. That forces you to zoom out losing details. If you zoom out all the way, so as to not have to pan, then everything is way to small to see especially the color of several of the switches.

A good start with great potentaial

Tried out a couple of different programs, this one has the look and feel of a real table more than anything else currently in the store. Tapping to pan is a bit weird to me, would prefer swiping, and would really like to be able to go minimalistic, especially if I could turn off the billboard as an option. User interface is primitive but you get used to it. At the end of the day, you can have three trains running all around the layouts, and that's what I was after. I can't wait to see the improvements over time.

Very Nice IPAD Train Set!

I've always loved HO scale train sets and this one is the best. Going digital is a great media format for a train set; eliminates all the parts and electrical connection issues. The graphics are nicely done and physics are pretty smooth. Still trying to get viewing angle down but really pretty intuitive. While this version could use some fixes, it is still nicely done.
I also own ItrainRun on my MAC Pro and enjoy it as well but, I prefer the IPAD version most of the time (more portable). I'll hold the rest of my comments until the next release. I'm sure the next version has to be very nice upgrade. PLEASE HURRY...Love this App.
