Trains Set Up

In Trains, players act as burgeoning industrial planners seeking out the most valuable routes for their high-speed railways and stations. Through the course of the game players will not only lay rails over several different terrains and try to reach the most valuable destination cities, but they will need to pepper their tracks with revenue generators – both industrial buildings (such as a Control Room) and consumer establishments (Amusement Parks, Apartment Buildings, etc.) You’ll also have a chance to upgrade your fleet of trains to specialize: do you want to move commuters?

Well – Explorables put my eye on this game a few months back and now the full BGreview treatment has put the rest of my face on it. Now to get my hands on it…

A review most excellent @Account. Engineered to perfection 🙂

Thanks Jeff! I meant to get your feedback on it last week, as you’re definitely the expert on the game… but it took a lot of work to get this to the finish line, and reaching out to you fell through the cracks. Glad it passed your scrutiny!

One of my favorite games — in fact, the first game that got me writing reviews here. Excellent full-review treatment, AD!
