Introducing a new login system!

In preparation of the launch of its mobile version Rail Nation is getting a new login system. Don’t worry:

nothing will change for you: your accounts with email address, password and name will remain unchanged.

Two things you should know about the change:

  • We require a period of downtime to switch our systems. For this we have planned a 3-hour window on
    Tuesday, 14th July 2015 from 11:15am (GMT+2) until 2:15pm
    Only once all the features have been tested will our servers go back online. If we experience any delays, as can happen with such a large systematic change, we will extend the downtime. We will keep you updated on Facebook and in the forums.
  • The login mask will be given a fresh look. As will be the input fields for the email address and password, as well as the server selection. The functionality will not change. Just log in and start playing!
