[prMac.com] Farmers Branch, Texas - Magnin & Associates has announced its popular Model Railroad Set 1.0 (iOS) is now also available on Apple TV. Relive the childhood joy of playing with a virtual model train set.
The free version allows driving the train on our several built-in layouts or any that you receive via email (using iOS v1.2 ) from friends. Move the train forwards and backwards, faster or slower. Honk the horn. Operate upcoming switches. Instantly change between multiple camera angles to view and follow the train.
Purchase the optional Train Builder Kit to build your own train layout and share it via email with your friends. Others only need the free version and your email. Create your own model railroad from our extensive menu of train cars, track pieces, roadways, automobiles, rivers, buildings, trees and other items. Automobiles automatically follow the roadway, and stop at train crossings. Windmills and Merry Go Rounds are animated. Purchase the Train Builder Kit as an In-App purchase on either iOS or Apple TV and use on both. Layouts are stored in the cloud and accessible from both. Email your layout (using iOS device) to a friend and they can easily download the free version to play. They can later purchase the Train Builder Kit to add additional features themselves.
