Last Stop for the Monorail

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that the Monorail Event is ending tomorrow! The Monorail Event will be leaving our games at 0800 GMT (4am EDT)..at least it’s scheduled too.

Most likely it will require an App Store update to remove, so it is possible you’ll get a little bit of “borrowed” time to earn more prizes.  But remember if it happens: it’s borrowed time..and the game could force you to update at any time.

So let’s take a look at everything that ends tomorrow and what you’ll need to grab if you want it before it’s gone from the store…

REMEMBER…Make sure you unlock the Rail Yard if you want to continue earning Track AFTER the Event ends.  Also, be sure to unlock ALL of the Recycling Depots (Metal, Plastic & Glass) so you’ll be able to earn even after the event is over.  For details on the Rail Yard check out this post and for details about unlocking the Glass Depot (if you haven’t already) check out this post.

Turbo Tappin’ Monorail Event: Sebastian Cobb

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Monorail time in Springfield!  Yes, the Monorail is now in Springfield….as well as a whole lotta garbage.  So what are we doing with all that junk?  Well the one and only Sebastian Cobb is using it to create parts for the Monorail!  (talk about the ultimate recycling..)

Sebastian Cobb is the final character you can earn during the Monorail Event.  He comes to us via the final Act 3 prize.  And once unlocked he comes with his own questline.  For those of you that have earned him already let’s take a look at his short questline now…

Monorail Event: The Rail Yard

IMPORTANT: If you’re having problems with your Rail Yard paying out….read this post:


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Monorail Act 3 is now upon us!  And one of the super cool things about Act 3 is that the final prize not only awards us a cool looking building and character…BUT also the chance to earn Track pieces AND Free donuts ppermanently!  So for everyone worrying you don’t have enough track…don’t panic because as long as you unlock the 10th prize of Act 3 you’ll be able to keep earning track long after the Monorail Event is over!

Of course the prize I’m talking about is the Rail Yard and it comes complete with Sebastian Cobb as a playable character for your Springfield!  The Rail Yard  is  the final Act 3 prize and is earned at 154,550 ico_mono15_bellswhistles_lg.  But just what is it?  What does it do?  How do you earn free donuts from it?  Let’s break it all down below….

Monorail Act 3 Is Live

Note: The servers have been giving me issues off and on since Act 3 hit.   It’s probably just a bunch of people trying to get in at once.  Or it’s just because it’s 4am here on the East Coast and 1am where EA is.  In any event…don’t panic if you see the Bart Screen.  Just hit retry and see if you can get back in.  If you can’t, walk away from your game for a little bit and come back to it later.  The servers will come back, they always do…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Friday!  Woohoo it’s finally the weekend!  (well as soon as 5pm rolls around…)  But here I am up at just after 4am here on the East Coast because Act 3 (the final Act) of the Monorail is now live!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…
