The ‘Simtown Express Quest’ (aka Train Station Discovery Quest) is discovery quest that arrived with the “Doctor, Doctor” update in September 2016. The quest allows you access to the new Downtown area, which is home to the (also new) Sim Town Hospital where you can find the Doctor profession.
However, in order to access the Downtown area, you must first build the Simtown Express (located on the bottom left of town next to the restaurant). The Simtown Express costs $250,000 and requires 1 Day to build, as well as 12 Sims in your town.
Once built, you can begin the Simtown Express Quest. Completing the quests will unlock the Downtown area, Sim Town Hospital workplace, and Doctor profession; however, if you complete it in the allotted time, you’ll unlock an adorable toddler train conductor outfit.
So without further ado, here is a walkthrough to completing the Simtown Express Quest, based on a beta build:
