TIME LIMIT: 5 days UNLOCKS: simtown express, downtown area and hospital profession workplace PRIZE: toddler train conductor outfit
NOTE: if a pop up appears about this new quest click NOT NOW, if you do click YES and it takes you to downtown DO NOT BUILD THE HOSPITAL! Go back to simtown and build the simtown express first. If you build the hospital you will not be able to get back to downtown to complete construction on the hospital and will be unable to build the simtown express as the hospital is being built. If you have built the hospital early contact EA to see if they can fix this issue for you.
To begin this discovery quest you need to have the latest version of the game then you can build the simtown express (this is located on the bottom left of town next to the restaurant) once built you can begin this quest. The time limit starts as soon as you begin the quest, if you complete in the time limit you unlock the toddler train conductor outfit, if not you can still complete the quest and unlock the downtown area where the hospital profession workplace is.
You cannot complete this quest at the same time as any other discovery quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like
I can’t complete the train demonstration, why?
Thomas needs to be at the park to be able to complete this, if he isn’t, go back to the house he was last at, find him and then go back to the park. If he still doesn’t arrive at the park, click on the whistle on the simtracker to bring him there.

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it
I don’t understand the Hospital Career, can you help?
Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal
Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
