Local Express TrainsEdit
If you are logged into the game, and you have an empty rail at your station for 10 consecutive minutes, an Express Train will appear. As long as one rail remains clear, another Express Train will arrive until all rails are filled. Express Trains can be identified by their blue outline.
Express Trains will now wait in your station forever until you unload its wagons. This was changed in the first half of 2017, the exact date is unknown.
Express Trains are randomly generated by the game and can be matching sets or a mix of different locos/wagons. They are level-dependent and will become more advanced as the player levels. Occasionally, and for a limited time, PixelFederation will increase the chances of seeing rare locomotives as Express Trains to help players fill out their Museum. They will often be locomotives that are unlocked around the player's current level, or special offers currently or recently available.
NOTE: Hyperloop Express Trains only deliver XP.
Redirecting Express TrainsEditTrain Yard Tower can be purchased. This building will divert all local Express Trains to the station it is placed on. Having it at any other player station will help clean up and organize the main station rails and also increase the number of incoming Express Trains, because there are always free rails until filled up.
