Build a train system to allow Sims to come into your city, drawing more Sims from farther away to populate your metropolis.

Train Tips

  • Trains carry low and medium wealth commuters and tourists.
  • Trains run less frequently, but carry more passengers.
  • Trains allow factories to ship freight outside the city.
  • Trains can only send commuters between cities with a Train Station.
  • Trains will ship resources in and out of the Global Market.
  • Trains can ship resources between cities.
  • Rail stations that are overwhelmed by demand might prevent trains from visiting other stations down the line, leading to massive wait times at the other stations. This can be solved by placing multiple stations closer to one another to lessen the load on the single station.
