***** by Skymomma
Amazing app - Wow this app is one of the best apps out there, I could just play that for hours! I love creating my own routes. When I go on the plane I don't even bother using the Internet because this game rocks!! Make more routes!!!!
Trainz is now available on the iPad – OMG, what a great app to have with you on the road or stuck somewhere.

...allowing your fingers to directly select, move and manipulate objects and landscapes on the screen. The process is actually akin to artistry as you glide, slide and stretch the on-screen elements in an effort to create your own masterpiece.
- James Woodcock
it's amazing what you can do. I created this mountain layout entirely from scratch. I shaped every mountain, placed every tree, laid every track, and painted every texture. This is just scratching the surface of the library of objects you can choose from.

I was so surprised at the level of detail in this game. Very responsive, lots of options, great map creator and overall nice way to show what the iPad can do.

Amazing simulation - This game is my favorite time sink. The challenges it provides are intelligent and realistic. I haven't even begun to explore it fully after months of play.

The USA map needs a lot more
I really do like this app, but it have some reccomendations. I, and probably lots of other people, want more realistic crossings, trains, signals, and towns/cities. The types of trains I, and the other people, might like you people at trains to add to the "City and Country USA" session are CSX, Norfolk Southern, Burlington Northern, BNSF (Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway), CN (Canadian Northern), CP (Canadian Pacific), and UP (Union Pacific). Also, the SW7 Switcher seems to not be working. Since the update you all said it was added to the app, it wasn't present. I know this is all on another Trainz Simulator for the computer, but some families don't have a computer and have to rely on Apple products. The Trainz Driver app also needs some changes, but I won't mention them. These changes would make the app's ratings sky-rocket!!! The only reason I got this app, is that I thought these trains were on the app. Add these trains or I will delete the app.
P.S. It needs more realitic rails and railroad crossings and the lights on the crossings need to flash.
Thanks For Update!
The newest update fixed the video issue with the New IPad. Thanks team! Your customer support is great.
Trainz is still, in my opinion, an excellent train sim. The images and scenery are beautiful on the New IPad; I'm really impressed with the detail displayed on the retina display. Very good controls and response; the physics are pretty good.
On the con side, sometimes the video appears to freeze for just less than a second, almost a flicker, and then returns back. This is very minor and not too distracting but, would be nice if fixed.
I recommend this sim to any body who lenjoys playing with train sets...this is by far the best train sim I've seen. The virtual worlds are very nice, I love it and I generally spend time running the many routes at least once a day. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next update will bring.
Trainz is Awesome!
Very cool train sim. Lots of detail considering the platform. I just bought it and couldn't put it down! Nobody reads these for compliments only so here's a list:
Things that need improvement:
1. Frame rates drop a bit some times
2. Retina support would be incredible on this sim. It still looks great though.
3. There is some tearing in the textures especially when going through tunnels. No big deal, but it would clean up the experience.
4. The free roam camera seems a bit twitchy. Not sure how to control, but does not detract from the overall fun of the sim.
Great sim with a very promising future on this platform.
