A Train Trains-icon consists of a Locomotive and one or more Carriages Carriages-icon. All Locomotives except the Puffing Billy can pull the Premium Carriages (the ones that cost Gold Gold-icon to purchase) while the Mogul can only pull Small Carriages or Premium Carriages.

Almost all Locomotives will periodically break down and require Parts and time Time-icon to Repair them.

The number of active Locomotives is limited by the total levels of your Stations District-station, although some require no room in the depot. The number of Carriages Carriages-icon in Storage is unlimited.

"Offer" means that the Locomotive can be purchased via a (time-limited) Special Offer. The price is only a guide, as they do not seem to be fixed, and also seem to be cheaper on Facebook than other platforms.

Upgrade

Arrow up
Below is a comparison between the Basic Locomotives as they come from the factory and those fully-Upgraded through Research Blueprints.

The Ratings in Reliability Reliability-icon and Chance to Obtain Items Chance-icon are approximations based upon the in-game bars graphs for each Locomotive while Speed Speed-icon & Efficiency Capacity-icon Ratings are derived from actual Contract data, as follows:

Speed

The Speed Ratings Speed-icon below have been Normalized to a scale of 0 to 14 (worst to best); Default Speed (e.g., un-upgraded Moguls and Pacifics) is 5 on this scale.

Increased Speed Ratings result in a linear reduction in Contract times Time-icon; every additional 1 Speed Rating results in a 5% decrease in contract time when compared to the Default. For example, if a Pacific (Speed 5) takes an hour to execute a Contract, an Ashford (Speed 7) could do it in 54 minutes while a fully upgraded Lightning (Speed 13) could do it in just 36 minutes.

Note that Efficiency (and sometimes Speed) decreases when the Number of Carriages Train-length-icon the Locomotive can pull increases. This is why the "Upgraded" Efficiency Ratings below may be lower than the "basic" ratings. Most Trains that allow Upgrade to the Number of Carriages will also have a subsequent Efficiency Upgrade that returns their Efficiency close to where they were before.

Efficiency

The Efficiency Ratings Capacity-icon below depict the percentage (%) of the Default Cost for a given Contract.

I.e., where a basic Decapod (without Carriages) requires the Default 660 Silver Silver-icon to initiate a Level 4 Coal Contract (or 100%), the Puffing Billy requires only 198 Silver Silver-icon (or 30%) while the Polar Express requires 1,320 Silver Silver-icon (or 200% of the Default Cost).

  • Note: Default data found by moving all Locomotives into Reserve before attempting to initiate Contracts.

Reliability

A Locomotive's Maximum Reliability Reliability-icon will determine how often Repairs must be made. Preventative Maintenance may be performed prior to breakdown to Restore a Locomotive's current Reliability (which is reduced through normal usage in fulfilling Contracts), up to its Maximum Reliability Rating. Some Locomotives will never break down nor require Maintenance and are indicated with (infinite Reliability), below:
