Trainz Driver, with the tagline "Power in your Pocket" merges together the incredible power of trains with the power of modern day smart phones - and provides astounding results.
For nearly 200 years, people of all ages have been fascinated by trains. Whether it is their immense presence, the deep rumbling noise, the romance of steam or the nation-building history, it is hard to pin-point this fascination. It is difficult not to be mesmerized watching car after car go past while sitting at a level crossing or standing on a platform. From Thomas the Tank to model railroads, almost every boy has played with trains at some time in the past. It was with this background that the Trainz franchise was invented.
Way back in 2001, the very first version of Trainz ran on a PC with PII 400 MHz Desktop PC with 128MB RAM weighing in at 12Kg (plus another 12Kg for the 640 x 480 resolution CRT monitor). The latest version, Trainz Driver, will run in the palm of your hand on a 140g iPhone 4S with a dual core 1GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM! This amazing escalation in technology allows an incredibly rich experience you can carry around with you in your pocket.
Trainz Driver has been specifically customized for smart phone screen with a new mobile user-friendly interface and additional on-screen visual aids like navigation points. With a broader demographic in mind, Trainz Driver offers both game-based "Arcade" sessions as well as more realistic "Simulation" sessions. Users will discover fully fledged 3D environments where trains and railroads are the main attraction.
With over 1 Million units sold for PC and with over 500,000 registered users on the Trainz website, the Trainz franchise has been a world leader in the train simulation market for many years. In 2011, the iPad was released has since reached #1 Ranked iPad app in 17 countries and #1 Simulation Game in 55 Countries. 18 months later, it regularly sits in the Top 10 Simulation Games around the world. Everything points to the newest version of Trainz setting new sales records.

However, owners of the Trainz Simulator app for iPad can still create and share free content with Trainz Driver users through the Download Station. Additional content will be released over time for free download or as in-app purchases.
