was a train (as in railroad) game. I believe it was on floppy not disk but then my memory might be wrong.

the box art had like a freight hauling steam engine flying midair toward the ground where laid tracks were waiting and there were some prarie/hill mixed scenary in the same art

the game itself..you just basically controlled one or more trains' speed and direction on premade or custom track layouts

I can't recall any more because for some reason the game/box/manual aren't existing anymore now, but I DO know the family used to own this.

Maybe "Trains" by Spinnaker Software 1983? A list of games for various systems, indicating that this title once existed.
