Product Description

Product Description

Take the controls from the engineer's cab with thousands of tons of freight behind you and exciting challenges ahead. From steam engines to diesel to electric, immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and adventures of trains.

From Amazon.ca

Train Simulator takes the obsessive realism of Microsoft's best-of-breed Flight Simulator games down to earth. Six real-world rail lines are included from throughout history, including the Flying Scotsman line of 1920s England and the modern Odakyu Electric Rail commuter line in Tokyo. Attendees at the National Model Railroad Association's August 2000 convention marveled at the game's painstaking attention to detail. But this game is not a model railroad game; it simulates the real thing. The game's developers traveled across the world with cameras and microphones in order to authentically capture the trains in their natural habitats. Train Simulator lets you experience the world's greatest trains in all their glory.

Train aficionados can drive the train, run the rail yard, or dive in with the terrain editor and create the rail lines of their dreams. Or you can just sit back, relax, and admire the beautiful scenery and dreamy click-clack of the tracks. --Andrew S. Bub

As soon as I saw the ad for Microsoft Train Simulator in TRAINS magazine, I knew this was the game for me. Train Simulator gives anyone the power to drive their own train on 6 detailed routes all around the world, including Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, BNSF's Marias Pass, 2 Japan routes, including a busy commuter line and a more quiet route through the moutains of Kushu island, and the last 2 routes, including the Flying Scottsman and the Orient Express in the days when steam trains were still thriving.
The first train I ever drove was Acela on the Northeas Corridor, and I say that this and every route has detail and many of the objects are one-of-a-kind (an object that you can only find there!). Probably the best out of all of the routes is the Marias Pass route. You can run through the Rockies, and speed through the flatlands near Shelby, and you soon find out that Montana isn't just beautiful moutains!
In addition to the wide variety that they have already gave you, there are thousands (maybe even millions) of free ad-ons online, including engines, freight cars, activities, cabviews, sounds, and even routes! Just type in "Microsoft Train Simulator" in your browser and you get thousands of results!
If you don't have enough time to buy a new route online, you can simply make you own! Included with Train Simulator is "Editors & Tools", where you can make your own routes, and even convert default objects into your routes! Editors & Tools also lets you make your own activities for your new routes, and you can even make custom cabviews for more realisim in some engines!

I totally agree with the Customer from Idaho and others - it really gives you a real life experience, and can be an "addictive" experience
I run it on Windows 2000 and have no problems of downloading and crashing. I hesitate to say but have the impression Windows XP doesn't have enough "steam" for it. Also you need a good graphics/video card. My real joy is driving the steam trains - Deisels don't have the same degree of difficulty - !!!! Ever slid back down a steep grade or gone nowhere with a Deisel.

Verified Purchase
I bought the game with high expectations. I installed the game and everything seem good. When I tried to play the game it told me that I had the wrong cd-rom in. So tried the disk 2. Same thing. I try and go to the microsoft website for trouble shooting like it says and that page doesn't load. Shows a 404 error.

This is not a review of the product, but a review of
Amazon in response to their incredibly bad customer
service.
I was about to order this from Amazon and then saw a proposed
shipping date of more than 2 weeks later. I decided not to order
and left Amazon. Imagine my suprise when five minutes later
I got an e-mail saying my order was in process.
Even worse, when I went to cancel the order, the product
was "shipping soon" and the order could not be cancelled
even though it has just been registered and still had an
estimated shipping date two weeks in the future.
When I wrote to customer service, I reveived what was clearly a form letter stating that the order could not be cancelled, but that I could return the product. Of course now, I am stuck with
the shipping fees both ways.
This is the last time I do business with Amazon. Since they
would not respond to my request, I am entering this review
to warn future customers of Amzon's questionable practices.

Having just recently installed this sim on my pc I was very impressed. I have not had much luck with any of Microsoft's games in the past. Their combat flight simulator 3 in my opion is just plain awful compared to great other great flight sims like IL2 forgotton battles.Even their first combat flight sim (which I have) is better. Microsoft games to me for some reason seem to look unfinished. Imagine my suprise when I installed Train simulator! This game is very well done indeed. I am a big fan of Auran's Trainz so I really did not expect to keep this game installed for to long. I was on xmas holiday from work and I was looking for a cheap game to fool around with. I purchased this because it was cheap And I was curious as well. Trainz is more like model railroading, this is more like real railroading.I have since purchased some third party add-ons and this is where this game really shines. The realistic routes and activities are nothing short of fantastic. I still cannot believe I had not tried this train sim before. Whats more ,unlike Aurans Trainz you dont need a high tech pc to run it properly. Of course the more video memory / processor speed you have the better. This sim also has a massive online community supporting it. Sites like train-sim.com are a good start...........If you like trains you cannot afford to let this one pass by. Get onboard!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't explain what this game/simulation has brought to my PC game experience. Once I popped the CD into the drive and began the game, I suddenly felt this was the game I was waiting for, what my PC was waiting for in fact!
OK, enough of that flowery talk, in simple terms this is a superb train simulator, the best. It allows you to drive a various selection of engines (diesel, electric, steam) and trains (passenger, goods) along real life routes and tracks, with great detail paid to scenery and rolling stock. There are many enjoyable activities to keep you immersed for the forseeable future and I can see you playing this one for a long time to come, particulary with the subsequent add-ons giving the game an unlimited amount of shelf life.
This simulation will appeal to both serious train enthusiasts and the casual train admirer. Many may think this simulation is for and aimed at trainspotters, nothing could be further from the truth. It's got a wide appeal from the young to the old. Added to that, by driving on these routes, it also teaches you so much about foreign railways and the geography of foreign towns and cities.
Just perfect, a great gift for at anytime of the year!
