Real World Track Packs

The following collection of Real World Track Packs have been carefully and meticulously recreated.  Each represents hours of research for photographs & videos, checking specifications, thoughtful study, and then careful recreation with constant tweaking until each ride is as perfect as RollerCoaster Tycoon will allow.  "My collection of Real World Track Packs contain the most accurate RollerCoaster Tycoon recreations on the RCT Webring." -- Steve Franks

Steve Franks' Real World Track Packs are an exclusive feature to RCT Station.

The individual packs offered below each contain:

  • The .TD4 RCT track file
  • The .TP4 RCT preview image
  • An .TD6 track update as they become available
  • RCT Screenshots (Overviews and Highlights)
  • Photos of the actual coaster
  • A .doc file outlining the actual coaster and its RCT counterpart

For each pack, you can either download the .ZIP pack itself, or you can click the thumbnail to preview the coaster.

Note: Due to Chris Sawyer's technical changes to the .TD4 files in the expansion packs, Loopy Landscapes, RCT/Gold, or RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is now required for all of Steve Franks' Real World Track Packs.

This .ZIP pack includes all of the new fonts used in the documentation for the track packs.  It's very simple to install and includes a descriptive text file to help you out.

To insure that you can enjoy my recreations as I have created them for the Steve Franks Collection of Real World Track Packs and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, use the official workbench called Nirvana Gardens, kindly provided by Mr. O'Connor.

With the release of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, I felt the need to offer some good words on RCT 2, and most importantly, my Track Packs. To view this document, download it here.

Race Thru The Clouds  

Description:  Roller coasters were new and all the rage early in the century. Prior & Church's 1911 Race Thru the Clouds was the first and largest side friction racing coaster ever built on the west coast. With more than 4,000 feet of dual track and amazing station-to-lift surprise, its name invoked all the wonder and magic that this new invention could conjure -- A Race Thru the Clouds!

Rolly Coaster @ Millbrook Park  

Description:  What could be better than a stroll with your honey on a warm summer's day, and a ride on the Rolly Coaster at Millbrook Park?  Nothing.  And that is what thousands did after a week's toil in the town's steel mills.  A great side friction coaster and park from a bygone era.
