Introduction

The object of Rail Runner is to move Bill Switchman down through the maze of Trains and Handcars to collect each of five Herman Hobos. Bill will find the five Hermans at the bottom of the screen. If Bill is hit by a Train, one Bill will be lost. If Bill is hit by a Handcar, different actions will occur depending on the level.

Only being hit by a Train will result in the loss of a Bill. If hit by a Handcar he will return to his starting position.

When Bill reaches a Herman, Herman will be automatically saved and Bill will return to his starting position.
