Discover Trainz Model Railroad 2017

Trainz is a powerful piece of software and for 15 years, Trainz fans have often found novel and interesting ways of using the product. When users started created "huge" items to surround their routes, the scale of the trains and the terrain would suddenly transform before your eyes. This concept spawned a whole selection of "model" routes and TMR 17 showcases the best of them.

Here's a shot of the Appen route (one of the 7 routes included in TMR17) in the early days of creation back in early 2014:

Almost 3 years later, with more than 20 sessions included, as well as tutorials and a selection of "layout templates", TMR17 gives Trainz fans a whole new way to look at the hobby. With higher density, greater detail and less time between destinations, the gameplay tends to be more fast paced. There's a huge variety of sessions included as well with shunting, passenger runs and freight colleciton against the clock to mention a few.

This trailer showcases the fantastic content assembled into the latest Trainz release - Trainz Model Railroad 2017.

What is TMR 17?

TMR is the Trainz A New Era SP1 code base but with a total focus on model layouts. These range from a single baseboard in size up to the"industrial scale" Port Zyd and Shorz routes from philskene.

It includes the incredible Surveyor tools, but as the following video shows, this doesn't mean you have to stop at building model size routes with this version of Trainz.

We have also included Basemapz which is a very handy utility for tracing over your favourite trackplan.
