Train Valley DLC Visiting Germany With Bombings, Wall

RAF always after my trains :(

Do you know of Miniatur Wunderland? It’s the world’s largest model railway, with around a thousand trains, thirteen thousand metres of track, and two hundred thousand people across more than a square kilometre with diddy versions of everything from its home town – Hamburg, Germany – to Las Vegas. There are cars, crowds, farms, festivals, boats, ships, planes, a space shuttle, fire engines which go out and fight fires, and a drowned body in a river being investigated by a forensics team. It sounds pretty amazing, in short, and I’d very much like to visit one day.

So no, I’m not at all surprised that the first DLC for fun rail management game Train Valley [official site] is focused on Germany. They flipping love trains.

This 5-minute video gives a brief tour of Miniatur Wunderland and shows some of its fanciest bits, which seems a fair introduction:

But really I’d recommend this 25-minute video showing so much more detail. The small details are delightful:

Oh, and Train Valley’s Germany DLC? Developers Flazm and Oroboro Games say:

“Players will be able to go across 6 beautiful scenarios inspired by German railroad history in 6 new locomotives inspired by legendary machines such as the Adler or the Prussian T9. Manage your budgets to build the best railroad network possible… and try to stay accident-free!”

It’ll be out on April 7th for Windows, Mac, and Linux, priced at £1.99/$2.50/€2.50. Looks like it’ll be tackling transport antics during troubled times like World War 1 and the East/West division, with events like biplanes bombing and The Wall coming down:

    Shoot! 5min video already sold it to me. I HAVE to go to Hamburg now. It’s just 1000 kilometers away.

    LOL and that top image doesn’t at all suggest a mode in which you can blow up chunks of that diorama… If it isn’t in there, it should be, Sim-city style ^_^
    That would raise my interest from mild curiosity to guaranteed impulse-buy!

    @2:15, “And a NEW fire starts not too far away!” Is what’s happening what I think it is.. :O

    I love the precision of the longest train being “14.51 metres long”. Stereotypes.

      It’s insane. I knew nothing about it, but on a trip to Hamburg a couple of years ago was told I had to go (and there was a horrible rainy day.) Didn’t regret it for a minute, and still want to go back.

        Bah, if it had been a horribly rainy day in Hamburg, you wouldn’t have been able to go there that easily, as the area is not flood-protected. Most likely, it was “original Hamburger shietwedder” (original Hamburg shitty weather)

        Here’s what they do when there’s REALLY bad weather:
