The vocabulary of Rail Nation

abbreviations

Since the beginning of Rail Nation we admire how engaged our players are in developing ever new strategies and how they push them to perfection. It starts with the discussions in the city forums and extends even to the relaxed small talk in the world chat.

Over time, extensive conductor-vocabulary has been established, making communication in the chat and forum much more efficient and quick. After all, things need to run smoothly and schedules need to be perfect!

But what do all the abbreviations and technical terms that have become common in the last few years actually mean? We took a look at the servers and put together a clear compendium full of Rail Nation jargon.
