Transport Fever 2 As Model Railway Sim - 01 - Settings and Scaling

While Transport Fever 2 actually is a game of economics, to set up a transport network and make your economy thrive, its game engine can equally well be used as a simulator for (model) railways. We can tame its AI to keep villages and industries static and we can give ourselves unlimited money to build and rebuild as much as we want to make our (model) railway look good.

The Steam Workshop has a vast collection of mods available, all free of charge. They comprise collections of rolling stock from different countries, trees, houses, industries and more, as well as system mods of which some are very useful for the purpose of model rail sim.

This video series intends to cover most of the topics that can help to enhance the experience of using TF2 as a model railway sim.

The first episode shows the game settings for model rail simulation and details how to scale your (originally probably HO or N scale) model layout to work with TF2.

Transport Fever 2 As Model Railway Sim 03 Stations

Trains can only make scheduled stops at a station. More specifically, cargo trains can only stop at dedicated cargo platforms and passenger trains only at passenger platforms.

Placing a station is super easy, just a mouse click. Use the n,m keys to rotate. After a station has been placed it can be modified, the station can be named and tracks, platforms and buildings can be added or deleted until it has the desired configuration.

Transport Fever 2 As Model Railway Sim 04 Train Lines

Trains don’t just randomly drive around, they drive on so-called Lines, which we first have to set up. A Line is a list of stations, waypoints and signals that a train must pass in sequence. Lines are created in the Line Manager.

Once one or more Lines are set up, trains can be bought and can be assigned to a Line (this will be the subject of the next video).
