Welcome to the RailWorks User Wiki.

The RailWorks wiki should be considered as a Work in Progress. While RailSimulator.com Ltd make every effort to be accurate in this manual, it does not attempt to claim to be comprehensive. The tools described here are complex, and there are many other variables which affect the behaviour of the software (such as third party software and computer configurations); therefore it is not possible to document all aspects of the software fully.

This detailed reference follows on from the Creator Manual supplied with your RailWorks simulation, and gives detailed information on how to create your own Routes, Scenarios, rolling stock, in-game assets, signalling systems - in short everything you need to create your own virtual railway.

Using the RailWorks wiki

Use the menu at the left for broadly navigating to the section you require. To view a complete list of all the sections in the wiki, click on the Reference Manual link.

Each section and subsection has individual tables of contents to drill down in more detail.

At the top of each page, icons allow you to move to the next and previous pages and move up and down a level within the document structure.

Use the Search box at the right to locate information about a specific topic.

To keep up to date with changes to this wiki, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the RSS icon to subscribe to the RSS feed.

The RailWorks wiki is continually updated with new material as the game develops, and in response to your feedback. RailWorks welcomes comments on the information in this wiki by emailing support@railsimulator.com.

General Tips

Creating a route to a high degree of realism can be a very exacting process. The following tips outline good working practices when modelling in earnest:

• Examine how the supplied routes are constructed to learn useful tips.
• Try modifying the supplied routes and Scenarios before you start your own route.
• First try practising with a small section of your chosen route.
• Save your route often.
• Make regular backups of your RailWorks installation to ensure you do not lose routes you’ve created. It is a good idea to copy all of the installation files regularly. By default these are located at \Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\railworks\Content\Routes
• If you change something in the supplied routes that makes RailWorks stop working, restore the game from a backup or reinstall the software. This is nearly always quicker than trying to diagnose the fault.
• Switch on the Infrastructure Lock (see note below) to prevent accidental amendments to key scenario data.

Please note that if you change any of the routes supplied with RailWorks, RailSimulator.com Limited will not be able to provide support for the product.
