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.
