Built my first train!

Post by Gamatron332 »

So I finally built my first train! I’ve gotten to bots and yellow science before but never have built a train. The one I built is a LCC train that transports iron back to my base. Just realized how easy it is to get the hit by a train achievement. 3 times. 3 times in 20~ minutes. No real reason for this post was just marveling at the devs handiwork! Also anyone else get entirely distracted by their base when they bring new resources in? I spent another 20 minutes staring at my mall and green circuits starting up. Mesmerizing.

That first train is a great feeling. I was thrilled beyond words.
