Gems (Gems) are the Premium currency used by TrainStation. They allow the player to purchase certain benefits, such as:

  • Items that are usually higher quality than what can be purchased for other at the same level.
  • Items that are unlocked earlier than when purchased other .
  • Items that are usually cosmetically superior; they look much nicer than regular items!
  • Speeding Up trains.

Although TrainStation is playable and enjoyable without spending any real money, Pixel Federation must pay their employees and various administrative fees to provide a game that is worth attention. To support the game, a gem purchase helps keep this game around for a long time!

Gems can be acquired in a number of ways, including from the Gem Shop, Contracts, Special Trains, and more:

Gem ShopEdit

The Gem Shop can be found within the game. Here, real money can be used to purchase specific quantities of Gems. Gems purchased while playing on the TrainStation Portal page include a 10% BONUS!
