    Build railroads in order to connect cities, tunnels and bridges. New railways are cheap when laid across bare fields, but can be expensive when demolishing forests, villages and other existing structures.
    Manage increasing traffic by constructing switches, sidings and spurs so that multiple trains can run without delays, at the same time.
    Stay accident-free by precisely controlling trains during crucial moments, using pause for planning (you can build railways and schedule trains while on pause).
    Play through 5 seasons: Europe (1830–1980), America (1840–1960), USSR (1880–1980), Japan (1900–2020) and Germany (1830-2020).
    Complete the story mode featuring such real-life events as the Gold Rush of 1849, the construction of the Florida Overseas Railroad, World War II, the Cold War, the launch of the first manned space flight Vostok 1, the fall of the Berlin Wall and more.
    Explore the game in different game modes: in story mode (5-10 minutes), in random mode (15-20 minutes – the level looks and develops differently every time you launch) or in sandbox-like mode (can be turned on for both story and random modes. It allows you to play without time and money limits).
    Discover 30 types of trains – from early steam-powered locomotives to modern high-speed trains, driving 18 types of cars – from old-time passenger cars to hoppers and cisterns and to military-use tank and gun platforms.

    Train Valley: Console Edition is a simple game, with a fair price and that will keep you for a good few hours solving its puzzles.

    But “fun, playful way” is really what’s important there—because Train Valley is a lot of fun. It takes a fairly simple concept and adds some well-thought-out layers to create a satisfying, enjoyable train management puzzler. It’s best suited to short play sessions, but in those quick bursts, Train Valley hits a sweet spot.

    Train Valley is an easy-to-pick-up puzzler that offers up some relaxing gameplay and it's fun for a while but then it starts to get a bit repetitive and the fun wears off considerably. It's okay though and if you limit gameplay to shorter sessions over a longer time, it'll be improved by taking breaks from it.
