Description: Fully embracing the physicality of touch enabled virtual reality you are legally required to build layouts piece by piece, tree by tree. Then, once complete you must remotely operate your trains with a replica DC control panel or hop in the cab of any of the available locomotives and drive them with physical levers, knobs, and dials! They even burst in to flames when they crash, you can’t say that about your real model trains can you?

Review: If you have ever dreamed of converting a loft or basement into a giant model railway this is the app for you. Put simply its a model railway creation tool. You can shape the scenery, the landscape and you get lots of different trains to drive around the track and yes! You really can get onto the trains and drive them! While I did find the interface a little clunky I stuck with it and soon got used to it.

While some people will feel the £10.99 asking price is too steep I think this is one of those apps that is only going to offer real value for money to the right person, someone who will play this time and time again. While that person isn’t me, I could easily see someone else enjoying this immensely.
