What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“A train station's life is full of problems, mysteries and complexity. During the design of Train Station Simulator, our main goal was to let our growing community bring their newly created station to live on a realistic level.

The main goal is not only to play a game but by their user feedback and ideas, they actively participate in the creative process of creating new features and fulfill a dream to have a realistic train station simulation game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The final 1.0 release of Train Station Simulator is planned for 2018 Q4/2019 Q1. We believe that alongside with the community, we can deliver lots of new contents, features and challenges.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

Train Station Simulator has been designed to be a realistic station simulation. The basic simulation functions of the game already work with some great fun additions to make it more relaxing and easy to use. We would like to add lots of new features, scenarios, weather-related events, disasters, new graphical content packs, engines, passenger related new functions, new staff types, objects and facilities. The community page will have an active part of the future development of the coming new functions.

We plan to add the following features:

  • Weather-related events: rain, snow, windy weather
  • Disaster modes: train accidents, trees on rails,
  • Thieves, robberies and bomb threat related events
  • Advanced terminal evacuation
  • New staff types: swat team, engineers, train cleaner units, track maintenance service
  • Advanced passenger AI
  • More transportation connections: underground station, trolleybus terminal, parking lot
  • New objects: overpass, underpass, moving walkways, advanced vending machines, recreation area, park, playground
  • New facilities: advanced restaurants, bars and buffets, pet relief area, lost and found, meditation room, nursery
  • More colorful passenger types: children, elderly, disabled, beggers, hooligans, pickpocket, train graffiti artists, distraught passengers, smoking violators
  • Cargo operations
  • In-game tutorial
  • Continental train graphics packages
  • Mod support for all train graphics

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of Train Station Simulator is completely playable and all major station simulation functions are in place.

Expanding content with constant updates (version - 0.8.3.0 Updated*: 20/October/2018)

  • 56+ different objects to place
  • 25+ types of trains, locomotives, engines and carriages
  • 25+ different staff members in 5 settable categories and an extra 2 categories of shoe-shiners and shop assistants (assistants are part of each cafes and restaurants by default)
  • 24+ types of passengers including vandal persons and homeless persons and disabled persons
  • 22 different cars from the 70s and 90s and bicycles
  • 16+ types of shops/restaurants and other facilities to place
  • 9 public transportation vehicles
  • 6 doors
  • 5 types of rails: standard, advanced, electric, magnetic, light hiber
  • 5 flooring
  • 4 platform types
  • 3 walls
*Not all content available in all game modes at once.

Main building functions:

All building, placing and zoning features, employee setup and list view, public transportation schedule, train schedule and five day statistics menu work properly. Standard passenger AI has been enabled already: after arrival passengers need to buy their tickets and each individuals have their own indicator for food, drink, bladder, rest and mood that results in different behaviors.

Standard goal:

The main task in Train Station Simulator is to build, operate and expand your station. The more happy passengers you can travel to their destination, the more money player can earn to enlarge the terminal building and create new routes and more advanced facilities.

Developing a station simulation is not an easy task and we are not there yet completely. However, we need to balance new features and create advanced functions and file some bugs or misleading features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The Early Access version starts with an introductory lower price. We plan to raise the price of the game as new and more advanced features will be available.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community is a key part of the future development of Train Station Simulator. Our plan is to launch regular updates - once or twice a month - and we invite the community to offer feedback, suggestions and request modifications to help creating a better station simulation.”

0.9 update is coming this weekend on the PC BETA channel

Great Day to Train Station Simulator,

I know that some of you guys lost belief in this game but I am still here. However, I have not posted too much recently but it was not at all about abandoning the project but I had to work so much more on it to be finished.

Why did it take so long for this update?
So 0.9 update is coming to the BETA channel this weekend (4-5th May 2019). This is a very BETA update and you may face serious errors and bugs. The game have completely been re-coded due to some technical limitations and problems but this 5 months of re-building of the complete game has some great benefits. In the future, new features can be added so much easier and the game will be supported much-much longer. Stay tuned I will upload a new post when the final build will be out this weekend.

Is it coming really coming this weekend? (4-5th May 2019)
In short yes.
With bugs? Yes... some bugs will appear. First I upload the PC versions and after that I try to upload the MAC and the Linux version as well. This may take some more coding to work properly but it will come soon as well.

The added new features are very long and the bugfix list as well so let me put here all the details:

1. Re-coding
The game has been re-coded entirely. It has been optimized highly but some bugs can appear in the beginning.


2. Custom Timetable menu
You can now create 4 custom timetables in ENDLESS and Sandbox mode. You can set each train's settings by clicking the icons.


3. Custom Train types and length
You can set the engine, the carriage, the length and type of the train.


4. 200% more passengers. Maximum is now 500 passengers at once.


5. Redesigned Build / Object / Facilites


6. Completely redesigned Empolyees Menu


7. Redesigned all in-game icon layouts


8. Redesigned transportation menu and new transportation names


9. New Transportation graphics


10. New flooring tiles and new road design


11. New pavement design and new grass design and new tree design


12. Buttons added for passenger mood and ticket type


13. Ticket Machines when kicked by vandals now show 'Out of Order'


14. New region namings


15. Huge speed and memory optimization
Try the double speed with 500 passengers. It should run very smooth now.


Upcoming features that was not fully ready for this update:
- Train and station disasters and station evacuation
