This gets very challenging very quickly! Glad there is a pause button to allow time for forward planning. The timetable text could do with being larger, but still, great value at free with no ads.

Thank you. We will be adding tutorial and cam view in next release. We will send promo code before launch. We are re-arranging levels with Uk and US stages.

Hope to receive more feedback soon.

This is so difficult to get into as it stands, and I'm used to these types of puzzles. It would help to have options to run trains at much slower speeds so we can see how each level works without getting in a mess and without having to pause every few seconds. I find the present minimum speed of 'normal' is way too fast to learn the higher levels.

OK. We will take this request in to consideration. We will add a new button to slow down the speed. So there will be new button to slow down.

Thanks for the slower speed option. Overall the gameplay works very well for the levels I've seen. There are a couple of things which may help to streamline operation. Would it be possible for trains held at a red light to start moving automatically when the light is changed to green? Also, management would be easier if all station platforms were eqipped with signals. This would enable a stop light to be set in advance so that a local train will then automatically stop at a platform, or left at green to allow an express to run through.

Yeah, we had that in beta version. We intentionally removed so as to make the game more interactive. what are your thoughts?

Btw, in the next version all the levels will be locked and you will have to clear a level before you go the next level. Also regarding the Cam view, we will have actual trains recorded with gopro cam from track view. This will help the player to close the road just before train arrives.

Were you able to check the Snow and maintenance trains?

Play the game levels in the following order: : L1,L2,L6,L7,L9,L10,L3,L12,L4,L5,L8, L11,L13,L14,L15,L16L17,L18,L19,L20

(we will have them rearranged in new version.)

HTH,

My thoughts are the beta version sounds better The game can stand being less interactive as we need time to study the timetable between trains. There will still be plenty to do at the complex yards. I'm also thinking that making it a slightly more true to life sim, especially regarding signalling and automated trains, will attract more players. These types of more accurate sims are popular on PC and sell for around 30 per station!

I haven't seem the snow and maintenance trains yet and will look at those over the weekend and report back. Thanks for the suggested level order.

The next version with the Gopro footage sounds excellent; and it makes sense to lock levels as you suggest. All the more reason to ease back on the interactivity a little and attract casual players as well.
