Description

Create Your Own Model Railway is a single player train simulation in which the player designs and builds their own track layout and populates it with buildings, trees and trains. They can then run their layout, operating switches to route trains into stations and sidings, controlling the power to change speed or to pull heavier loads etc

Building the layout is controlled by a mouse/keyboard combination. Track is selected via a drop down menu and is placed onto the layout with a mouse click, prior to placement the piece can be rotated via the arrow keys. The same process is used for the selection and placement of buildings and scenery objects.
When the layout is completed the terrain can be altered, the track can be raised and the game automatically builds a wooden trestle bridge structure underneath it. The terrain itself can be raised to create hills of lowered to create lakes, where hills are created the game automatically creates a tunnel and where lakes are created the game spans the water with trestle bridges.
When running the trains the player uses the mouse to vary the power around the circuit and change the points to route the trains around different parts of the track via the control menu the game creates in the lower left of the screen. The player can place a camera on any of the trains and follow it's journey around the layout and they can take a snapshot in .bmp format.
