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.
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

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!Read more ›
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!
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.
