I've been watching this among other new 3D 19th century train sims.

These are 19th century trains, but the game dates are in the 1930s so that's puzzling.  Anyway the signals are working:

It's Soviet Russia, right? That might explain a lot. ;)

How do you like it, I've been watching it for a while.  I ended up going with transport fever because of the grander scale and multi eras.

  Yep, I think the consensus is that Transport Fever is better for lots of reasons.  There are multiple eras in Mashinky.  i haven't played Transport Fever so I don't know how they compare.

  Or steam makes you buy it and then try to build it.  There's the Soviet Republic city builder that Steam keeps recommending to me because I've
played two games "like it" Naval Action (there's a puzzle) and Mashinky.  Luckily the Soviet republic city builder isn't coming out until q1 2019.

Not a bad game..but trains arriving at stations find it difficult to reverse, or head back to their original destinations. Very odd/bugged pathfinding.

I do like the additional layers of product...but seriously, get Open Transportation Tycoon instead. Far superior game.
