3-D Ultra Lionel Train Town Deluxe 3-D Ultra Train Town Deluxe is a stand-alone reissue of 3D Ultra Train Town, which was voted "2000 Family Game of the Year" by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. This "Deluxe" release enhances the previous game by adding 50 new missions and a new track creation system.

Design your own ultimate railroad system, then jump into your world and interact with every aspect of your creation. Take on the role of conductor and deliver passengers, food, animals and other goods to their destination. Or, hop aboard and ride the rails as a passenger.

Play with over 30 authentic models from Lionel's own line of miniature locomotives that span the ages of steam through diesel. Design your track layouts using a multitude of interlocking straights, curves, crisscrosses and intersecting slant pieces. Get help coupling track pieces by using the "Smart Track" option.

Make your creation real by adding buildings, trees, bridges, tunnels and other automated objects (like a working crane or a rotating dumper). Using the Layout Editor, choose your locale - from the backyard, kitchen, basement, miniature animated town, a dinosaur farm or even the North Pole or the Moon! Finished projects can be played as well as posted on the Internet for others to download.

The beginning tutorials outline the basic play functions (driving trains, moving from track to track, and managing loads). Then you are presented with a series of puzzle scenarios in five "job bins" with varied difficulty that can be played in any order, or skipped altogether if found to be too challenging. Finishing all of the jobs in a bin unlocks bonus tasks with a special animation reward. [source:mobygames]
