Trip Time and CostsEdit
The trip time for an international train depends on the route chosen. When dispatching an international train, a player may choose one of the following.
- Standard Route - 4 hours; no extra cost
- Fast Route - 3 hours; costs 9
The "Cancel Train" option is available only for the first 10 minutes of the trip. After 10 minutes, this option no longer appears in the Trains screen, and the player receives credit for all appropriate achievements.
An international train will arrive at a contractor's station two hours after being dispatched on a Standard Route, or one hour after being dispatched on a Fast Route.
On occasion, Pixel Federation will offer shorter international routes for a limited time. During these limited periods, the following times apply:
- Route times:
- Standard Route - 3 hours
- Fast Route - 1 hour
- Time to arrive at contractor's station:
- Standard Route - 1 hour
- Fast Route - 30 minutes
An international train will wait in a contractor's station for one hour. If the player manually collects the train's load, the contractor will receive 110% of what the train carries. After one hour, the train will give the contractor 100% of the train's load, and depart the contractor's station.
