The classic Station Master  train-themed card game returns in an updated version from Calliope Games - - 2 to 6 players - - 30 to 50 minutes game play. 
Every morning, the train station is bustling with passengers looking to depart for their destination on time.  As Station Master, your job is to keep passengers happy by guiding them to their right coaches and sending the trains out of the station on time, earning you points for efficiency.  When completed trains leave, players with passengers aboard the train score Efficiency points.

Station Master is loaded with railcars of positive and negative values, so you'll need to plan carefully when sending trains off, as you'll be affecting other players' scores when you do!  More fun is added to the mix when Action cards are played that alter the rules with special one-time benefits.   The game ends once all  trains have left the station, and the player with the most Efficiency points is declared the winner and triumphant Station Master!
