Derail Valley

Derail Valley is a highly immersive train driving simulator, letting you truly be in a train cab and operate controls with your own hands! Choose jobs and deliver a variety of cargo between industries in a vast open world, using a diesel-electric shunter or a heavy steam locomotive. Explore the beautiful landscape of 256 km² filled with railways, industries and maybe even some secrets!


Freely choose step-by-step jobs found in offices of every industry. They include (un)loading, shunting and hauling, involving dozens of cargo types modeled after a realistic industry chain. Use the hard-earned money to refuel and service locomotives, or even buy new ones! Finally, try to stay on the tracks!

Derail Valley Early Access is a major upgrade to the award-winning demo from 2016, being developed by a small team. Features:

  • Built for VR from the ground up
  • Emergent simulation of a shunter & steam locomotive
  • 256 km² open world
  • Procedural jobs driven by industry chain
  • Derailment physics
  • Locomotive maintenance & basic damage

    Non-VR support:

    For players who are not in position to use VR, we include rudimentary controls for playing on a regular flat-screen PC, using keyboard and mouse. For the best experience however, we highly recommend using a supported VR headset.
