Austrian rail firm releases addictive tamping game app

Austrian rail firm Plasser & Theurer has released a mobile app allowing gamers to get behind the wheel of a tamping machine.

Across three different scenarios, players can operate three of the company’s tampers: Unimat 08-4×4/4S, Unimat 09-4×4/4S E³, and Dynamic Stopfexpress 09-3X, to attempt to perfect the art of tamping sleepers without any mistakes.

Each machine presents a different scenario for the player, with obstacles and higher degrees of difficulty.
