Global Interface Addons

The Global Interface Options section allows you to enable or disable Global Interface Addons.

By default this provides an option to enable or disable the in-game chat interface.

Account Details

The Account Details window allows you to update or refresh your login details in Trainz.



The Achievements window shows your current Achievements within Trainz.


Save Game

The Save Game option in Driver lets you save your progress in the current session. The data saved includes:

  • the location and current settings for each train
  • the current state of each industry
  • signal and junction states
  • the state of rules that support the save function*

'*' Some 3rd party rules do not save the state of the rule, and therefore loading a save game can be problematic in some cases.

You can rename the save game name to create a new "snapshot" of your current session.

To reload a Saved Session, exit the current session and select the saved game from the "View Sessions” menu.

Exit Driver

This option takes you back to either the Sessions Menu or Surveyor, depending upon how you loaded the Driver Session.

Note that you are not prompted to save your progress when exiting Driver.

Exit Game

This will close the current game window (but leave the Launcher or any other Trainz windows open).


In Surveyor, the System Menu provides many of the same options as shown in Driver. These can be viewed above.

Below we've include the options unique to Surveyor.


The Save dialog provides options to save a new route and session or to overwrite the existing route and/or session.

The options provided will depend upon which layers you have edited during the current editing session.

Save As

This option provides the option to rename the currently saved version under a new name.

Exit Surveyor

This option takes you back to the Routes Menu

Trainz Plus Update

In Trainz Plus, a new Surveyor Menu Bar was added, providing access to new features such as the new Surveyor Camera Modes
