I don’t think for this type of game, it would be possible to make it more like Rail Simulator, where you could control trains to perform certain shunting movements. I don’t think that was the intention from the outset. It has been modelled more like Sid Meirs Locomotion and Cities in Motion, rather than a proper driving simulator. But Trains seem to be classed as the most important transport system in the game, hence the name Train Fever. It could just have easily have been called Transport Fever.
