Step 1: You will need forge, you can download it here. This mod is for Minecraft version 1.7.10, so you should download the forge build titled "1.7.10-Recommended". I would recommend the installer version. If you chose the installer version, run it to install forge. You will need to run the game with forge once before you can continue to step two. To run it choose, while in the launcher, in the bottom left, choose "forge" as the profile. You may need to verify your Minecraft Credentials.
Step 2: Next, download the mod from this forum thread. Then copy the mod from where you saved it and paste it into your mods folder. To get to your mods folder on Windows, type %appdata% into the address bar of Windows Explorer (The file browser). The inside the ".minecraft" folder within there, there should be a "mods" folder where you can add this mod. Can't help you on Mac :/
Step 3: Run your game with forge, how to do this is in Step 1.
If you encounter any problems, please feel free to notify me on this thread or PM me.
Note: To submit your world, you will want to copy the world save in your "saves" folder within your ".minecraft" folder and upload that to a file sharing site, such as Mediafire. (You should probably compress it into a .zip before uploading, if you don't know how to do that, just Google it)
Also, if you have installed the mod, the trains are stationary as loki352 stated

Nice models, everyone (who's making them, that is). All we need now is a good coder that can bundle this all together and make the mod. Anyone out there?
