    Hello dear players! ;)


    unfortunately, in the last couple of days we had some unexpected issues with the lobby and the servers for approximately 5 minutes.

    This resulted in players suddenly being kicked out of the game and receiving the error message 502 and that the servers were not reachable.

    In order to fix this we need to perform a small technical adjustment which will require a short downtime. :thumbup:

    Dear players,

    as the majority of you might have noticed already the Design an engine contest has ended recently, therefore we are happy to announce the winners of this event. The Community Management Team has selected the Top 3 submissions by a vote, however it was not quite easy to make this decision, especially considering the significant amount of entries.

    Now it is up to the community to decide which of the following submissions comes at which place - be sure to vote for your favourite design below! <3

    :!: AngelOfShadows©:!:




    First and foremost, congratulations to the winners depicted above, we have had a lot of astonishing entries which made it exceedingly difficult to choose. :thumbup:

    Dear players,


    it was brought to our attention that there is a preeminent issue concerning the accessibility of the forum via iOS devices when using the browser. The devices that are affected get a supposed error message that their account does not exist.


    In order to circumvent this and to be able to properly sign up, players can use the landscape mode to login to the lobby and then press on the regular forum link, namely Rail Nation Forum, which enables the user to access it ordinarily.
    Alternatively, you can still login via the app itself.


    We apologise profusely for any inconvenience caused! :thumbup:


    Sincerely,

    Your Rail Nation Team :engine1:

    Dear Players,


    in April 1829, the Liverpool and Manchester railway (L&MR) announce an engine design contest known as the Rainhill Trials. Engineers from across the land were tasked with creating an engine to travel the 1.6 km track, with 5 locomotives entering and on 1 successfully completing the trial. That engine became the famous George Stephenson’s cargo and passenger steam train, known as “The Rocket”. It was from this engine design that most commercial locomotives where then founded.


    This momentous event helped to shape the world of train engines that we experience today, and we have been inspired by it. So, in recognition of the incredible design of the Stephenson’s Rocket, we will be hosting the “Rail Nation: Design an engine contest”! :Train:
