I still find the name Trainz questionable, but it isn't quite as bad as their slogan:

Trainz, bitches.

Maybe everyone just smokes some weed and plays AC/DC Runaway Train.

Did they really make their beta page on Wikipedia instead of their own website? Really?

If it were true sandbox and you could collectively have people design layouts together and such then maybe, something like Minecraft with trains.

Just driving trains in multiplayer, I guess it's no different than people "roll playing" in Flight Simulator with other people flying around.

It'll never be advanced enough to have scenarios like from the movie "Unstoppable" come to fruition.

The only thing I can think of is this is something similar to Gary's mod using Trainz assets. Otherwise, wtf are you going to do? Avatars standing around complimenting each other on their creations?

EDIT: "In Trainz Multiplayer, you control one or more Drivers. Each driver is assigned to a train, so through the driver you can control a train. You cannot control a train which does not have your driver, and you cannot control a train which is already controlled by someone else's driver.

Both of the sessions initially provided for the Trainz Multiplayer Public Beta are "sandbox" sessions. That means that we provide the routes and locos, but you get to decide what to do with them. While we will be providing more structured sessions during the course of the public beta and continuing after the official launch, we wanted to start with the basics and get the community up to speed with using the multiplayer mode first."

How about a head-on-collision mode?

How, uh... how would one engage in multiplayer in that? Do you just wave to your friend as he trains on by, and then you don't see anyone else until the next station?

And are there clans? *~\{D3th_Cab00$e}/~*|Mr_C0nduct0rz: lol n00b u need moar coal
