Rail ico.png

Railway

This option allows you to build railway tracks by dragging the tool across the map, complex junctions can be created by joining the lines together. Attempting to place a track over a deletable building will demolish the building.

Remover

This tool will remove only railway tracks and signals, it will not affect non-railway related options. It will allow you to select a single section of track, making it a more precise alternative to the Bulldoze tool. Also, by holding the mouse button and dragging, you can select whole section of the track to be removed. You can remove signal separately, however; if you remove piece of track containing signal, the signal will be deleted, too.

Upgrade/Degrade tool

(Available from Era 3) it allows you to change the whole section of track to a different type. You can either select a section of the track by clicking on single piece - will select the whole length from station to next complex crossing or switch. Or you can mark rectangle on the map (by dragging the mouse cursor while holding left mouse button) and it will change all tracks within the marked area.

Depot

Builds a Depot building to enable trains to be purchased in order to run on the railway

Station

Builds a Station, initially the max length is only 6 tiles. Building a new station in an adjacent tile to an existing station results in them being combined to form a single station.

Bridge

Builds a Bridge between 2 points, the bridge must be perpendicular to the grids to work, gradients on bridges are allowed.

Tunnel

Builds a Tunnel between 2 points, the tunnel must be perpendicular to the grids to work, gradients on tunnels are allowed.

Signals

Depending on the Advanced Game Setting there will be either one (for auto signal) or two (for manual selection of block and chain signals) icons for placing signals. Please refer to Signals page for more details.

Multisignal tool

This allows you to place multiple signals on long section of the track (between switches and/or stations) with single click. By using the small + and - icons beside the tool, you can set the distance (in squares) between those signals.

Roads

Road ico.png

Road

Builds a road by dragging the tool across the map. Attempting to place a road over a deletable building will demolish the building.

Remover

This tool will remove the road. Using it over the intersection, it will remove only one branch of the intersection (unlike the bulldozer which will remove the entire intersection in single click)

Upgrade tool

(Available from Era 4) it allows you to change the whole section of road to a different type by clicking on the piece of the road.

One-Way Road

Allows you to build one-way road. Dragging it over an existing road will change the marked section into one-way (in the direction of the tool move). Please note, this action can be undone only by removing the road entirely and building a new (two-way) one.

Depot

Builds a Road Depot building to enable buses and trucks to be purchased in order to drive on the roads.

Station

Builds a Station for road vehicles, initially the max length is only 6 tiles. Building a new station in an adjacent tile to an existing station results in them being combined to form a single station. You can also combine road and train stations

One-way Station

Builds on-way station in the same way as one-way road.

Bridge

Builds a Bridge between 2 points, the bridge must be perpendicular to the grids to work, gradients on bridges are allowed.
