The Ultimate Trainz Experience has arrived – get onboard now! Publisher Strategy First and Developer Auran are pleased to announce that the Ultimate Trainz Collection has shipped to retail stores nationwide.

“Ultimate Trainz Collection has so much great content, it will keep train buffs happy for a long time to come,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First.

UTC includes 2 CDs full of dynamic railroad gameplay that lets you not only create your own landscape, but collect and customize your locos and control as many trains as you and your PC can handle.

"It's great to see the latest version of Trainz hitting the shelves", said Greg Lane, CEO of Auran. "We've worked for more than a year adding features, incorporating user feedback and polishing the user interface and we're extremely happy with the results. We already have a huge user base aged from 3 to 83 and they each get something different from their Trainz experience. The Ultimate Trainz Collection adds to that experience with new scenarios, new content and improved physics and performance."

UTC combines all the excitement of Collecting, Creating and Controlling your own railroad with the newest version of Trainz, and adds in compelling and challenging scenarios such as short passenger runs, humpyard activities, and complex freight maneuvers.

Users can even create their own scenarios using the powerful scripting language provided, and share them with other Trainz fans online. There are dozens of new locos, freight wagons and passenger cars, plus a special bonus - Paint Shed - an easy-to-use paint program that allows users to create their own railroad liveries. In total, over 100 different cars, wagons and locos are included, and thousands more objects can be downloaded free.
