A game titled Rail Romanesque Origin by developer Lose is also planned to be released. The anime itself was inspired by the visual novel Maitetsu, which was originally released for PC in Japan in 2016 and on Steam internationally in 2018.
The Maitetsu visual novel was followed up by a console release titled Maitetsu -pure station- and a sequel titled Maitetsu: Last Run!! The visual novel has also inspired a manga adaptation.
Crunchyroll is streaming the anime’s first season and describes the story as:
The first Maitetsu Festival, an event for young ladies who represent train engines and railway lines, also known as Railords, has arrived. Inspired by the incoming fleet, Suzushiro decides to host a summit for Railords to share their trains of thought.
