Lucky Train – Game Introduction
Lucky Train is a Facebook game developed by A Bit Lucky, Inc. that lets players run a train station in their own county. Send different trains to friends around the world by adding routes and loading them with passengers while building a thriving county. This quick start guide will provide you with tips to get started playing Lucky Train.
Create Train Routes
For trains to enter your county, you need to start by creating a train route by inviting a friend to Lucky Train. This creates a route that will originate from your county and stop at your friend’s train depot. The limit is 3 friends and this will create 3 separate train routes.
Take note that whether your friend accepts or not, the route will be created and will continue to pass by your county every few hours. This, however, will only mean you have 1 stop. Once your friend accepts, this will another stop totaling it to 2.
Here’s a tip: Create as many routes when you start the game. This will help you earn coins and experience points faster while you wait for your route to be accepted.
You can opt to delete a train at any time.
Fill Trains with Passengers
required number of passengers to earn a profit. Check if you have a train waiting at the railroad crossing. The list of trains will show up in your queue and you can now start bringing them in.
Once it reaches your depot, choose a building that indicates a passenger is ready to travel. Look at the passenger’s information and it will indicate the amount of the fare, how many are ready and experience points per person.
Each time you add a passenger, the train will update its travel log and show you how much you’ll earn during that stop. The example above shows 2 economy passengers paying a fare of 3 coins each will give you 6. Adding that to the stop bonus (number of stops and routes), you’ll earn a total of 114.
Remember to fill up the train every time. This gives you more coins and experience points. But, you can still send the train on its next destination even if it’s not full.
Add Friends to Extend Routes
The beauty of Lucky Train is the ability to extend routes to existing trains. Getting your train to travel around the world by extending routes (and having friends extend that as well) is exhilarating. Call it the mother lode of earning coins and experience points.
Click at any train in your queue and add a friend to its route. This will send a request and wait for them to accept. Take note that you can’t add a friend if someone from the group has a pending friend request.
Here’s a tip: Make sure you add someone who you know will surely accept. It’s going to frustrate the group if they can’t extend the route because there is a pending request. Do them a favor by removing the last stop (pending invitation) if after a day or two, the status is still pending. You can just add them to your own route instead.
The more you and your friends add to a train’s route, the more stops it will have. This is where you’ll earn more bonus coins for each stop. As an example, if the train has 5 cars and you load passengers that pay 3 each and it has 10 stops, you’ll earn a total of 150 coins as a bonus. This now adds to your total fare.
You can upgrade any train, whether it’s your own or a friend’s. Clicking on any route will will show you the type of train, the speed and how many cars it can hold. Click on the upgrade button and choose one that is faster and can hold more cars.
Tip: Scroll through the choices and if you have enough coins, pick the higher valued train. You’ll see the numbers turn green which will indicate that you can purchase it.
Take note that the time it takes to do a round trip is dependent on the number of stops it has and the train’s speed. The point of upgrading is for you and your friends within the route to visit your depot more often and load more passengers. You’ll earn more coins and experience points.
Your Train Schedule
Your train schedule is a guide to know when the next train arrives in your county.
Scroll through your train list and at the left side of the railroad crossing are trains that are in transit. A time is indicated on how long it will take to reach your county.
At the right side of the railroad crossing are trains that have left your depot and is on its way to its next destination. The time indicated is how long it will take to reach its original station.
Construct Buildings in your County
Place more buildings in your county to allow more citizens to reside. This will mean more passengers for the trains. Go to the store and pick a residential or commercial building. Mousing over each will show the type of passengers you can have.
The difference would be the number, type of passenger and how long it will take for one to be ready to travel.
You can also add landscape items such as flowers and trees to make it unique.
