Train Frontier Express is a stylized landscape building and train riding game, focused on the fun aspects of model railroad building rather than complex train simulation. Fill a scene with miles of track, hundreds of props, and train car setups. Enjoy a ride through your own creation, then head online and share maps with friends and ride together.

  • What-you-see-is-what-you-get world editor
  • Stylized pop-art and funky props
  • Customized train setups
  • Derailment and explosive effects
  • Share maps and ride online with 4 player Xbox Live play

We’re one of the very few train sims to hit the console market, which is even more rare outside of Japan. We’re promising an update in the future expanding the game, including co-op world editing. We also take suggestions and interact with fans through our various social sites and dev blog.

About Team Train Frontier

Team Train Frontier is comprised of two San Diego game developers, both with AAA development experience working on their first indie title. Eric “expartend” is the team coder and an amateur anthropologist, while Emoks is the team artist and an amateur poutine connoisseur. The two E's are not your typical train sim developers, and are gamers through and through, taking inspiration from both ‘core games and pop culture.
