Europe is a continent in Pocket Trains, being unlocked from the start of the game. It covers Great Britain and other islands (Iceland, Ireland), the Low Countries (France, Belgium, Netherlands), the Italian peninsula, Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, and Norway) and Finland, and the mainland (Germany, Russia, Hungary, Greece). It also covers Turkey and the Caucasus nations (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia), which are usually called part of Asia. Ironically, Perm, which is usually called part of European Russia, is in Asia. This article contains general info about Europe, along with tips, lists, and strategies to help you conquer the first continent.
Upon the starting the tutorial of Pocket Trains, the player first starts in Munich, which is almost completely in the middle of Europe, and is tasked with expanding to Berlin. The player then is put on their own to expand to Paris, Budapest, Amsterdam, Milan, Rome, and Madrid. There are 26 cities in Europe to expand to and buy. Most expand northeast towards Scandinavia and Russia. Seven stations connect to different continents, which include Lisbon-New York, Reykjavik- Taliisaq, Madrid- Casablanca, Istanbul and Kiev- Baghdad, Volgograd-Tehran, and Moscow- Perm. This makes Europe a central hub for high- paying jobs and for transporting them far distances. Just about every train is good here and can be profitable as a result of short, intertwined lines of track.
Tips and Strategies
Here is a list of tips and strategies related to Europe. Feel free to add some of your own!
- Keep your steamers here when you unlock better trains. You probably should have conquered at least two continents should you replace them. But, its probably good to replace a busy one when you conquered one continent.
- Short, well linked lines of track mean railroads should be small. 4-7 cities is a good number. Don't overdo it, though!
- Europe is a centre for jobs going to bordering continents. Remember to upgrade stockyard capacity at important stations!
