Trainz Community Express Archives

15th May 2002

Hi everyone,

The Trainz community has been growing rapidly over the past few months in the wake of the Trainz retail release and we can no doubt anticipate many new visitors with the European release now in full swing.

This growth has been accompanied by an outburst of creativity that has resulted in a flood of new content for Trainz made by the many talented members of the Trainz community --- from lots of layouts to new locomotive models, many great skins and numerous other trackside objects, structures and accessories.

Thanks guys for the great contributions.

Talking about additional content, you should also take the time to check out some of the excellent Trainz fan sites that have emerged to support the growing hobby of all thingz Trainz. For even more additional content stop by Trainz Luvr and say hi to Amigo ( On the site route don't forget to load up on all the latest Train Sim news from the fat controller himself, Barney, at CroTrainz ( One of my personal favorite stop-offs is Rebe's Trainz Humor (; as he puts it, "if it's funny, and it's about Trainz, it's here! There are many other great sites to visit that I have not mentioned, for the full list please see the Links page. Some of the more recent additions include Matt's Trainz page (, a German site specializing in all things Trainz and Gmax (, and Gary's Trainz page ( that includes details about his first layout, California Dreamin and promises some future gmax tutorials.

If you have any announcements that you would like me to include about updates, features or events on your Trainz site please let me know and I will include the details in a future edition of the Trainz Community Express.

In support of our multi-national Trainz Community and accompanying the European retail release of Trainz we have now opened new French, German and Spanish language forum areas. These new language areas are currently unmoderated as unfortunately I'm only an English speaker (I know that is slack).

Finally, my Trainz forum waffle thread of the week. Some of the master wafflers are in fine form in the following thread:

Come over to the Krok side young Prr001

Stay tuned for more Trainz Community Express next week!
