Journey 4 - Introduction to Steam
This Journey takes you back to the 1940's and 50's when steam ruled the railroads! You start out with some introductory sessions to teach you how to handle the complex tasks of keeping your fire hot, water and coal levels maintained and avoiding wheelslip. You then move onto the famous Union Pacific BigBoy. The largest ever "4-8-8-4" steam loco consisted of a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves, two sets of eight driving wheels and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox. We have saved the best Steam locomotive for last. We are very excited to have this ultra high detailed train on mobile. Please welcome "The Blue Comet" in all its glory!

Ratings and Reviews
Works great - could use better interface
The game works great, but could use an option to enlarge the controls if one wants. They are tiny and a bit fiddley right now. It could also use an indicator as to what the upcoming grade and speed is going to be. A "real" engineer would know this, but it's impossible to tell what a hill is just from the camera perspective of the game. Even so, it's great fun.
Very good - problem with resuming drive sessions
These TD sessions are very well done, but sometimes you cannot save mid-way and if you have to close ipad/ go to another app and then come back into the same TD session, it is unresponsive. So you have to know you can complete the entire drive in one go - and there is no indication of how long this will take before you begin. Frustrating. But driving the trains themselves is great fun.
Wonderful Train Sim
Have had nothing but pleasure noodling around with all the Trainz apps over the previous year. No need to take the time or spend the money to build a model train. An empire far larger than I could ever dream is at my finger tips. Having a blast and have never regretted spending the $10 or so for several Trainz Driver and Trainz Driver Journeys.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
