XP BoostingEdit

As with most games, people are always looking for ways to "boost" their XP so that they can level up faster, thereby gaining access to larger and better items. One of the ways that can be achieved in TrainStation is by purchasing high XP locomotives with gold earned by completing contracts or running passenger and mail service to "local" stations. When leveling-up, your passengers are automatically set to the maximum. Use the shortest travel time (or special event when available), once you run out of pass just level up so you will never run out off pass.

To aid in discovering which locomotives are best suited for this task, I've compiled the list below. All of the locomotives on this list can be purchased for gold in the game store, and can be purchased in unlimited quantities. Yes, you can buy locomotives for gems that give much better XP, and yes there may be locomotives with a limit of 1 that have better XP stats, but that is not the focus of this page. These locomotives can be purchased 100 or 200 or 300 at a time to speed the process of "boosting".

This list contains locomotives of all types and is limited in scope. If you want to see a comprehensive list of all locomotives of a single type, please check out the Diesel Locomotives, Electric Locomotives, Steam Locomotives and Maglev Locomotives pages.

Just a quick note regarding the XP/Cost and Cost/XP column headers. The XP/Cost header represents the ratio of how much XP you get per unit of gold you spend, so you want this number to be as large as possible. The Cost/XP header represents the amount of gold you spend per unit of XP, so you want this number to be as small as possible. You know you have the list sorted best to worst when the Stephenson is the first locomotive on the list.

Note: This table is generated using the Wiki API to pull the data directly from the TrainStation wikia. All errors in the table are errors in OUR database, not the game's database. The numbers in the game are always the correct values. If you find errors with a specific locomotive, please correct those errors on the associated locomotive page, or bring the error to an admin's attention. Errors corrected in this table will be overwritten with the next API data pull.
