Stuck on a puzzle? There are over 1.2 MILLION player submitted solutions at http://trainyard.ca/solutions
Trainyard Express is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.
The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use basic colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

Proudly made in Canada.
Known issues (minor):
- If some provinces can't be unlocked even after you've solved all the available puzzles, that's a bug: Go to options, switch to player 2 then back to player 1 to fix it.
- Sometimes, the sounds stop working. Close the app using the multitasking bar to get sounds back.

Applies to this and the full app
I'm one of the biggest puzzle geeks and this app is the best so far. The satisfaction of solving one of these puzzles matches the pleasure of finishing my first Rubik's cube. The updates are awesome.
