Here is the story synopsis:

The Great Abandoned Railroad—a railroad line that is dying with the development of new transportation technology. In the corner of this world, a young man named Soutetsu Migita encounters beautiful young women with unique desires and forgotten railroad control modules known as “Raillords,” and begins to ride the rails of restoration.

The story is set in a “what if” world slightly different from the real world. Described as a “therapeutic beautiful girl railroad adventure,” the game features railway vehicles themed after the JGR Class 8620 (circa 1911), KiHa 07 (circa 1951), and other locomotives, as well as “Raillords,” feminine robots equipped with artificial intelligence that act as personifications of those trains.
