'Trainz Railwayz' Announced - Screens

Trainz Railwayz combines two new titles in the Trainz line of games, Harlem Line Edition and the Metropolis Edition, with the bonus addition of Trainz Railroad Simulator, modified to be compatible with Windows Vista.

The Harlem Line Edition is a representation of New York's Harlem Line. Activities will consist of historically accurate commuter and departmental operations typical of those seen from the early 80s to the present day. Each session is designed to reflect the real-life atmosphere of the locality and the services.

The Metropolis Edition, designed by Roger Cabo, is among the most stunning displays of Trainz ever created, focused on a modern city tramway and with beautifully realistic graphics.

"Trainz Railroad Simulator was a tremendous success last year, selling over 50,000 copies, and I am sure Trainz Railwayz will resonate even better both with traditional gamers and train enthusiasts," said Lloyd Melnick, Chief Customer Officer for Merscom. "Trainz Railwayz is a great bundle, combining two stunning new games with a hit title. It is a great value for either someone new to the Trainz franchise or somebody already enjoying Trainz."

"We are very excited about the release of our new series because it will appeal to both our loyal online following and also to our more casual users," said Graham Edelsten, Director of Auran Games. "Trainz Railwayz is a great collection that allows users to simulate unique periods in railroad history while still having a great time. Whether users are just beginning or have been playing Trainz for years, Trainz Railwayz provides seemingly endless amounts of entertainment."
