Rail Route is a train dispatcher simulator. You negotiate contracts, build railroads, set up routes for trains and control the traffic. Unlock features to your dispatcher interface, upgrade railway network elements and research new technologies that allow you to automate the operations!

Game Features

Manual Routing

Manual routing

Manual Routing is basic mode to control the railroad from the beginning of the game. You set up switches and signals one by one. Nothing but your skill and focus prevent collisions.

Automated Routing

Automated routing

Automated Routing helps when traffic becomes busy on a complex yard. You need a few clicks to set up all switches and signals en route. Collision avoidance included. Available later in the game when you research it and upgrade your signals.

Contracts

Contracts

Contracts build your traffic. Except a few in beginning, you choose the most profitable contract that fills a gap in your schedule by own. But there is a trial first! It adjusts the payments (according to your rail network performance) and creates the timetable for all future trains.

Building

Building

Build your own rail network to optimize the traffic. Be creative and fill every possible space you have.

Automation

Automation allows you to operate your railway network without your hands on. Your growing traffic does not lock you in operations, freeing your hands for further expansion. It works in a record-and-replay manner: you just do what you want to be repeated for each subsequent train of the same contract. When certain event happens, rules you create are executed – automation can create routes from the automated signals.

Level Editor

With the editor we allow the players to create fully custom board with everything that comes with it. Create a schematic of your hometown railroads, your imaginary railroad network or even create a London tube map using it! The rectangles you see moving can be modern or historic trains, the underground trains, trams, monorails, just whatever you imagine.

Future roadmap

The game is an active development. These are the features we are currently working on:

  • Scenario mode - scored levels with the predefined traffic you should handle
  • Advanced scheduling - adjust your timetable for even more control
  • Graphics overhaul - the game will be more visually attractive

Stay tuned for the future updates!

Disclaimer: Any purchase of this title in this alpha phase is solely the support of the game development. We will release the game under another project when finished.
