So with the early access release of the new Transport Tycoon sort of game I had much fun and created a little simple transportation routes. Our motto is - we're better than Nookrium ;)

Thanks for the free ride, silencer. :)

Let me tell you, though, those trains have amazing breaks. See for instance, at around 0:38 how fast you're going and once you break it comes to full stop in, like, 3 seconds, with no skidding. :P

Using that new feature I give you another ride. Last one was from early era Steam trains, now for the fastest Steam train there is the Southern Pacific class GS-2

Not really thrilled about the over-the-top logo splattered over the screen to be honest. ;)

So while I'm waiting for new big update for Mashinky (which is Diesel era) I really wanted to play a good Transport Tycoon type game. Since Transport Giant is too old now, Railway Empire is meh for me, I went for Transport Fever since it is good and I found like 60% discount so yeah. Right now I'm finishing the campaign mode. The easy US is finished, now the penultimate EU mission is finished, which was to make sure that people will choose TGV over Concorde. So let's follow that train from Paris to Lyon.



I hope that Mr. T will be much more satisfied with brakes ;)

Once I'll finish the campaign it will be choo choo in the free mode.

Well that would be a thing if there would be Transport Tycoon with day/night cycles. I can only offer The Cole Train.

So I continue on playing Transport Fever. Machinky got an diesel update, but did not try it yet, probably will do once I do all the achievements in Transport Fever.
My last goal was to do a Train Fever achievement (use only trains until year 2000), and in doing so I've made a little showcase of some choo-choos from the American tech tree



I've also finished that run with Glacier Express achievement - to have a line that runs 450m above the ground level. I've combined this with the connection of all cities on the map. In real time the entire trip would take like 45 minutes, I've accelerated it to be much much faster. Unfortunately I did not manage to have every city connected with some type of industry distribution, so one part if rather very lonely. Probably I will make up for this with the current run to get the remaining achievements. Should be easy now because I'm not hindered with any actions.



Btw, I wonder if someone is able to guess what trains are presented without looking at the vehicle list that are in the game :P Not that I'm train specialist myself, I wouldn't recognize any train :P.

Back to Machinky. It has been a while. 2 major updates with 2 more eras and custom maps. So we will jump back again to some choo choo trains on one of the custom maps.

But we bid farewell to choo choo, as we are moving to Diesel trains of early era.

One can almost feel the bite of the cold in some of those crisp winter landscapes of yours, silencer.
