Discover the History of Trainz

Whether you joined the community in the past week or 15 years ago when our journey began, chances are you have something in common with everyone else who visits this site - a love for trains, and Trainz.

From humble beginnings with just a few routes and a few locos to choose from, there are now thousands and thousands of routes and locos to choose from and hundred of thousands of scenery items to adorn those routes. The vast majority of this content is made by other Trainz Community members and that is one of the things that sets Trainz apart. Our development team focus primarily on the platform and tools and work closely with the content creators to deliver new experiences to everyone.

With the new graphics engine in Trainz A New Era taking advantage of the latest hardware, routes are becoming more and more realistic. The next generation of content will keep getting better and better.

In 2017 we will take things beyond where they have ever been before, with some new features we are very excited about - and soon to share with you all.
