About

Railroad X is more than just a Railroad Simulation. With Railroad X you can build your own railroad world in a dimension, which is almost impossible to realise in real model railroad: wide layouts with driveways and vehicles of all kinds – with cars and buses from all railroad eras. Whether you are a fan of steam trains or high speed railways, the limitations that exist when creating a model railway do not apply to the world of virtual railways.

With Railroad X you can build complex railway worlds on your PC or notebook and it is possible to control trains as a train driver. Of course you can control the entire rail traffic with a sophisticated signal system. Build train consists from steam, diesel and electric locomotives, passenger and freight cars. Railroad X offers a beautifully designed user-friendly interface, that puts many functions intuitively in scene. The new 2D plan transforms the layout top view in an artful yet clear drawing like the experienced model railroaders know it from trade magazines.

With virtual Railroad X, your trains will pass through landscapes whose appearance changes according to the time of day and local weather conditions, thus providing an extraordinarily life-like atmosphere. Additionally, there are animated figures and animals enlivening the scene. Besides cows and horses, fishes and birds, you have animated travellers and passersby.

Railroad X has a long history. The prototype of this software, EEP – Eisenbahn.exe, was created by Software Underground in 1998 and then continuously developed and enhanced each year. Since version EEP 4, the Publisher TREND and Soft Pro have been responsible for the development. In 2012, the founders of the program were responsible for the most extensive revision of the software since version EEP 3. After a year of hard work, they succeeded in creating a new version with Railroad X, which includes important features like a new grapical user interface, animated figures and interactive cabs.Features of Railroad X

Railroad X reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Dutch
For the serieus virtual model railroad builder this game is a rough gem, but having a steep learning curve and yet with some stability issues too. Therefore is adequate developers support and comunication for me a must. As long as Railroad X is not supported equally as the German Eisenbahn X version I don´t recommend this game. The developers didn´t communicate until now regarding future Railroad X patches and the upgrade to version 10.1 The upgrade to the 10.1 version is necessary to allow the use of the plugin Eisenbahn X already have. If you understand the language it´s may-be better to buy the German version at EEP Trendshop, avoiding any risks finally not able to get features and possibilities already available for Eisenbahn X. An update to my review. I have just received the developer reaction telling us Railroad X is launced with the latest upgrade, meaning being the same as Eisenbahn X version 10.1 In that case is the version information 10.0 Expert (64) patch 5 in the Railroad X start screen obsolete and leading to misunderstandings. The German Eisenbahn X version is some weeks before Railroad X was launced updated from version 10.0 patch 5 to the new 10.1 version. I hope the information the developers gave, assuming that Railroad X is the same version as Eisenbahn 10.1, is correct because you need the 10.1 game version before you can use the first plugin that you can BUY at EEP Trendshop.

I wouldn't buy this Game if I had known beforehand what was coming my way. I advise any "entry-level bloody Beginner," I recommend train-fever for Railway Beginners. This Game is not for people who have never dealt in depth with Track Construction and do not want to do so. Anyone here who hopes for a simple and easy-to-understand and "idiot-proof" editor and for fast Driving Pleasure who is definitely out of place here! Details see Pro & Contra: Pro: + relatively good Graphics + faithful Sounds + simple and good Locomotive control + easy And uncoupling + automatic course when arriving + large Locomotive and Trailer selection (Passenger car, etc) + large Variety Of objects such as Train Stations and Transmission Poles etc Contra:-Cumbersome Menu-difficult Editor/Track Construction! -are particularly cumbersome soft! -no automatic assembly of Platforms (dispute construction with gaps)-no or bad automatic stitching together from appeared (often set wrong or slightly)-Train Teleports to soft partial, further journey impossible-total Beginners Unfriendly! -Menu Sounds constantly too loud at restart. -it took me several Hours before I had a bad Looking train station with 3 tracks and the accompanying give way and the obwhl I looked at Several Tutorials on Youtube! I hope for updates for handling/Ease of use as far as the Editor is concerned. MFG Goasler
