Identify this (BBC Micro / PCW / RM Nimbus?) train game

Post by quantum » Tue Feb 24, 2015 1:16 pm

It's a train game where you open and close gates (using keys 1-9) to route fast trains between stations, and avoid them hitting each other. It's all on a single screen with no scrolling. Unsurprisingly you die if a train crashes!

I remember playing this game in school in the very early 90s. We had BBC Micros, Amstrad PCWs, and RM Nimbus machines. It could have been on any of those platforms, so any ideas? :|

How about a game screenshot quiz? Amiga, DOS, Megadrive and Commodore 64.

If its the same one I played around the same time, it was on the RM Nimbus and was this thing:
