With the recent release of Trainz: A New Era comes a new online service for everyone to use: Trainz Gallery.

Gallery aims to bring Trainz fans a new and exciting way to share your train and railway media content online.

With Gallery, you can upload images straight from Trainz: A New Era or from the web, and share them with other like-minded fans around the world. They can be Trainz game related, progress shots of content being modelled, or real world shots from your favourite locations. What you choose to share is up to you!

You can add tags to images and search through posts, or follow your favourite creators. You can browse through new images and vote on which ones you like or don’t like as well as comment on posts, to find out more about the route or location, locomotives, or any other questions you might have!

Currently, Gallery is in beta and we’ll be adding new features based on user feedback. So get on board today, and see what people are sharing!


Trainz: A New Era has just rolled into the station and it’s time for you to Get on Board.
