Track Building

Build the train sets of your childhood dreams with an easy-to-use editor. Just indicate where you want to build and Tracks does all the hard work for you, effortlessly mapping out turns, junctions and crossings under your command.

  • Add houses and trees to create your own little villages
  • Place unique track shapes and configurations beyond what you would normally find in a physical train sets
  • Physics objects to play with
  • Interactive mechanisms like bridges and lifts give you more freedom in moving around the environment
  • Play in free-mode to build at your leisure without any set objectives


Ride the rails

Once you’ve created your rail network, you can ride along from inside your train, in first person. You’ll have full control of your vehicle in this view and will be able to adjust the train’s speed and direction. Your train’s weight and momentum are simulated, challenging you to maintain a steady but efficient speed while transporting heavy cargo.

Objectives

Build your own train sets at will, or enjoy the set game modes which boast a variety of objectives for you to complete. For instance, Tracks challenges you to design a rail system that accommodates passengers’ commuting needs. Or transport cargo and build the most efficient rail network to complete objectives in the fastest time possible.

Environments

Varied environments await, acting as playgrounds in Tracks: The Train Set Game. Go off the rails, ride along the furniture, and bump into objects to activate them. Each environment contains unique features for you to experiment with and incorporate into your track designs.

Share

We are currently researching Steam Workshop support so players can share their tracks with other players online. We will update this section once we have a good idea of the functionality available after a few tests!

Tracks: The Train Set Game is everything the child in you has ever wanted. There are plenty of train games out there, but this is the only nostalgia-filled train simulator you’ll find on Steam.

Hello everybody!

Today's Tracks - The Train Set Game update includes a few bug fixes and the addition of a couple of new objects and new passenger types. Over the coming months we are working on several new additions and features for Tracks: The Train Set Game. Once we have more details, we'll make sure to share them with you in a future announcement. But for now, let's go through today's additions.

The Turntable Track Piece


Stop on the turntable and turn left or right to spin the train in place. It can also act as a normal cross junction which automatically switches when the train approaches. This has been added as an experimental object meaning that it may need more testing - if you notice this track piece behaving oddly, do let us know!

Merry Go Round!

The Merry go round will rotate, play music and also light up when placed in a night time environment.

New Passenger Types

A few new passenger types have made their way into the game. Right now they behave just like the standard passengers without their own special station but we hope to continue adding more types throughout development. Let us know what kind of passengers you'd like to see in the future.



And that's it for today's Tracks update, aside from bug fixes! Why not go and give Tracks a go if you haven't already, or add it to your Steam wishlist?
