TrainStation offers an endless variety of locomotives, wagons, buildings and accessories from all ages of the rich and exciting railroad history.
TrainStation is a fun and addictive Facebook social game where you can build trains, send them to various destinations and build your own train station. Basically, there are two train types: passenger/mail trains and cargo trains.
Passenger trains transport passengers and mail gathered at your station to destinations of your choice, after the train reaches it’s destination it returns to your station and you earn profit from fares and mail delivery. Passengers arrive and gather at your station constantly depending on the number and type of buildings built at your station, hence more buildings, more passengers.
Mail has to be collected either from the platform or by catching flying envelopes. If your station runs out of passengers and mail, you can not dispatch an empty train.
Cargo trains operate in a slightly different way. You dispatch your cargo trains to loading docks, load them up and deliver the materials to your station. Materials unloaded and stored at your station may be used to construct buildings, carry out station upgrades or it can be simply sold if you run out of gold.
You can assemble trains of your choice, either single wagon-type trains (passenger trains, mail trains, lumber trains, etc.) or mixed trains (passenger/mail trains or lumber/nail trains, etc.). The rule is that you are not able to mix passenger/mail carriages with cargo wagons in one train setup.
Every train has to pay tax upon leaving the station. This tax depends entirely on the type of locomotive you use in the particular train setup.
From time to time, Express trains arrive at your as well as at your neighbour’s station. You can’t tell when the Express trains will arrive, so watch for them carefully. Taking care of Express trains, either yours or neighbour’s, gives you extra resources and extra experience points.
Graphically, TrainStation as really unique visuals. The game is presented from a side-scrolling presentation, but you can click and drag your mouse up and down to change the angle at which you view your station.
TrainStation on Facebook Guide and Tips
In order to draw more passengers to your station, and therefore keep your passenger trains from stoping, you’ll be able to upgrade the decorations and buildings surrounding your station by using nails, bricks, and wood that you collect from your cargo trains to build huts, barns, benches, and even tee-pees.
While you’ll be able to stick with the ready-made trains that are given to you at the beginning of the game, you can also edit and/or assemble your own trains from scratch. You’ll be able to purchase all portions of the train’s assembly (the engine, passenger cars, mail cars, and so on) from the in-game store using coins, and these pieces will stay in your inventory until you choose to assemble a new train.
You’ll then simply drag and drop the pieces to form a complete train, with trains being limited to a certain length, based on the power of the engine (an engine with four power can pull four cars, and so on).
The amount of trains you have access to is level-based, with new trains being available as you level up. You’ll also be able to extend the width and complexity of your train station, either using coins (some upgrades require you to have a certain number of neighbors) or the game’s premium Gem currency.
While most gameplay sessions can last just a few minutes (or less if you happen to come back while all of your trains are still out on a route), you can technically play forever, by simply catching the floating mail packages that appear at random on the gameplay screen. Clicking on these adds a small boost to your mail total – again, mail is necessary for passenger/mail trains, as you must load them with hundreds of units of mail (on average) before sending them on their way.
