Train InformationEdit

When you reach level 5, your first train will arrive at the Train Station. You can have a total of 3 trains. Train 2 and 3 will arrive when you reach the required level and purchase them with coins. Trains can have between 3 and 5 carts, and the time for them to return increases as you level up.

Train No. Level Price
1 Level 5 Free
2 Level 14 1,000 Coins
3 Level 25 14,000 coins

Train Return TimeEdit

You can know how much time does the train take, to return by tapping the engine part of the train.

Using Tcash for TrainsEdit

You can use Tcash to fill carts, but it is just as costly to send off if you are missing a lot of the items. It's better to spend the Tcash speeding up the production of items in factories than to use cash to fill carts directly.

You can also spend up to 9 cash to return trains immediately, and the cost reduces as the train gets closer to arriving, listed below.

You may use this method to

  • complete train regatta tasks faster

Train UpgradesEdit

The max return time for trains is 5 hours, but it can be reduced with upgrades at the Academy of Industry.

  • Trains are upgraded separately, and it is recommended that you upgrade them to level 21 as soon as possible.
  • At level 21, trains' return times are reduced by 50% and take between 2h7m to 2h30m to return.
  • Try to keep train levels similar. If the 1st train is level 10 then make sure the others at level 10 as well.
    • It's easier to send off all trains at the same time, so they come back around the same time.
  • You can help contribute by updating the table with the 3 different train times at various levels.
Level Time Reduced Least Time Most Time
1 -0% 4h 5h
3 -5% 3h48m 4h45m
5 -10% 3h36m 4h30m
7 -15% 3h24m 4h15m
9 -20% 3h12m 4h
11 -25% 3h 3h45m
13 -30% 2h48m 3h30m
15 -35% 2h36m 3h15m
17 -40% 2h24m 3h
19 -45% 2h12m 2h45m
21 -50% 2h7m 2h30m

Train RewardsEdit

Send trains loaded with goods to return with rewards. You will gain XP for loading goods, but no coins.

By filling and sending off trains you can get materials for community buildings, materials to upgrade your barn, tools to buy land expansions and tools for digging in the mine.

  • Mining Crates are rewarded sometimes, and contain random amounts of different mining tools.
  • Helping your friend Ernie to fill his train cart will give you a golden balloon the next day with 1 Tcash.
  • You will need some Shovels, Axes, and Saws to unlock and explore the Islands.

Obtaining Building MaterialsEdit

There are many ways to obtain more building materials:

  • Sending trains loaded with goods.
  • Complete zoo tasks.
  • Sending fully-loaded airplanes. The mystery chest rewards random material(s).
  • Sending off ships with ingots has a chance to bring back chests that give random rewards.
  • Opening the daily treasure chest found in the islands gives a random reward.
  • Opening chests at the House of Luck gives random rewards.
  • Treasure chests found in the mine give random rewards.
  • Participating in weekly Regattas and global events for random rewards.
  • Opening hot air balloons in Townships. Your first balloon of the day is free, and subsequently they cost 3 Tcash to open. The balloon cycle resets at 3 a.m. EST.
  • Cash chests in the mine offer random rewards, but cost 3 Tcash to open.
  • Special crates with discounted tools and materials for Tcash often appear in the market.
  • You can always use Tcash to buy any remaining materials you need if you do not want to collect them in other ways.

Load CouponsEdit

Load coupons are occasionally offered as community event rewards. With a load coupon you can fill any trains cart or planes crate including any friend who needs help. The option will appear as long as you have load coupons available.

Train TipEdit

The trains follow an algorithm for bringing back random materials, but having too many of 1 type of material can result in getting too many of the same material. It's best to sell materials if you have too many of one type. Find the lowest amount needed to finish a community building or barn upgrade and sell the materials/tools down to 1 below what's required to complete the building or upgrade.

Example: You have 70 glass, 20 bricks, and 20 slabs, and you need 40 glass, 40 bricks and 40 slabs to finish the lowest level community building.

Sell glass down to 39 (1 below the required amount), so bricks and slabs will come more often on trains. The train has better odds of bringing you what you need when all materials/tools are below the required amount for completing a building or upgrade. Keep repeating this until you have 39-40 bricks, slabs and glass, and hopefully the next train will bring the remaining 1-3 items to complete your building!

If you have too many building supplies and your barn is full you may have to sell some of it. Look at your expansions, Community Buildings and Barn to see what is needed for your next building/expansion.
