Brand new Routes and Sessions
Trainz: A New Era provides a variety of high quality routes - both built-in to the core edition or available as Downloadable Content.
Based upon the famous Highland Valley route from the early days of Trainz, Kickstarter County has received a huge upgrade with new content, new track and new industries. This route is a tribute to all our Kickstarter Backers who helped make Trainz A New Era possible and includes a range of customized assets dedicated to our keenest supporters.
Chesapeake & Ohio RR, Hinton Division - (United States, 1950)
Hinton Division, one of the major coal producing areas for the C&O, starting just west of Thurmond, WV through to Hinton, WV and also includes the Laurel Creek Sub Division, and parts of the Piney Creek Sub, Rend Sub and Loup Creek Sub.
ECML Kings Cross - Edinburgh (UK, 1976)
This edition delivers the full route from London Kings Cross Station all the way to Edinburgh in Scotland - a 393 mile drive! With significant updates to almost every feature along the track, the route will take you back in time to 1976 UK.
Healesville - (Australia, 1910's)
A faithful recreation of the towns, stations, bridges and rural countryside of 1915 Australia. The line includes several notable features, including the 1.6 mile long timber trestle bridge over the Yarra River and flood plains between Yering and Yarra Glen and one of the very few tunnels on the Victorian Railways (at the top of the 'Tunnel Hill' grade between Tarrawarra and Healesville).
Avery - Drexel - (United States, 1970's)
The Milwaukee Road route runs from the end of the electrification in Avery, across the Bitterroot mountains via the St Paul Pass, and all the way to the crew-change point at Alberton. It features Little Joe EF4 electrics and a huge range of seasonal rolling stock.
Warwick to Wallangarra - (Australia 1990's)
Follow the QR Southern railway line through the Darling Downs and into Granite country, right to the border with New South Wales.
Season Town Northern Rail Road -(East or Middle West USA)
The Season Town Northern Rail Road (STNRR) is based in fictional "Season Town" situated somewhere in the East or Middle West of the USA. The aptly named Season Town supports season change functionality, so control the weather and see how the route responds to snow! The layout provides a short mainline section as well as a 6 mile branch line connecting a limestone mine with a cement plant, as well as a streetcar network consisting of four branches.
The BiDye Traction Railroad - (Someone's Garage)
The BiDye Traction Railroad shows off the versatility of Trainz: A New Era by creating a virtual model railroad for you to explore and enjoy. Built in a large garage in much less time and at a fraction of the cost of the "real thing", Bidye highlights how Trainz can be used by model train fans as well as prototypical fans.
Set up as a short line electric traction railroad serving several inter-dependent industries, the industries served by the railroad include lumber mill, furniture factory, grain mill, commercial bakery, paint and solvent factory, metal can and container factory, and a coal fired electricity plant.
