Journey 4 - Introduction to Steam
This Journey takes you back to the 1940's and 50's when steam ruled the railroads! You start out with some introductory sessions to teach you how to handle the complex tasks of keeping your fire hot, water and coal levels maintained and avoiding wheelslip. You then move onto the famous Union Pacific BigBoy. The largest ever "4-8-8-4" steam loco consisted of a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves, two sets of eight driving wheels and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox. We have saved the best Steam locomotive for last. We are very excited to have this ultra high detailed train on mobile. Please welcome "The Blue Comet" in all its glory!

Ratings and Reviews
I think this game is awesome, except for a few things: when you start a session, and u have to leave the app or turn off device it does not save your progress, you have to start over, please fix.
Second, I like steam engines, there are 5 different steam engines, not five different steam trains, but engines, 3 are blue comet, I only wish there were more steam engines to use. Last, but not least, I think there should be updates, and not every update has to have something added, just updates to let everybody know you are still working on the game. Other than those 3 things, the game is awesome.
Works great - could use better interface
The game works great, but could use an option to enlarge the controls if one wants. They are tiny and a bit fiddley right now. It could also use an indicator as to what the upcoming grade and speed is going to be. A "real" engineer would know this, but it's impossible to tell what a hill is just from the camera perspective of the game. Even so, it's great fun.
Wonderful Train Sim
Have had nothing but pleasure noodling around with all the Trainz apps over the previous year. No need to take the time or spend the money to build a model train. An empire far larger than I could ever dream is at my finger tips. Having a blast and have never regretted spending the $10 or so for several Trainz Driver and Trainz Driver Journeys.
