Summary: it arrived in only a week, 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 uninstalled it 3 times, still nothing. I try and go to the Microsoft website for trouble shooting like it says and that page doesn't load. Shows a 404 error. the seller was very cool and understood and i got my money back.

Excerpt: "...£20. I had heard how microsoft were successful in there flight simulators so I assumed that they would have put the same amount of effort in to this. Far dues this game is very realistic from what I know about trains (which is very little). Also when you get bored of it you can crash the trains. Literally that is everything the game has to offer. The rest of the game is absoloutly rubbish. The missions involve pressing go and then just watching the ...
Summary: Great concept - wonderful game - but.... the game crashes everytime you play and takes forever to download - so where are the brilliant IT guys that created it. And guess what, when you call for assistance, they have absolutely no concept of how to fix the problem. This game has so much potential too bad it doesn't work. How about recreating the game ... and, oh, let's see, can you make it work this time, so it doesn't crash your system.
Summary: Installation problems were not too bad, but it appears that Microsoft's remedy for its created monumental boredom is to arrange periodic system crashes to wake you up. After several of these experiences I uninstalled this fiasco and added it to the other accumulated trash in my waste basket.
Summary: I purchased this software, but after spending the forty-five minutes installing the software, I attempted to run the program for the first time. It hung the computer, and continued to do so each time I attempted running it. Eventually after my eighth or minth attempt, Windows reported an incompatibility issue with my video driver. I checked the Microsoft website to discover this is a chronic problem with this product.
Summary: I was unable to get <Train Simulator> to run on either of two computer that I own. One uses Windows XP the other Windows 98 I took <Train Simulator> and both my computers to a computer repair shop. The technician was unable to get the game to run on either of his own two computers or either of my computers. A co-worker tried it on his brand new computer. He couldn't get it to run. This makes 5 computers in all that were tested. All computers have Direct X 9.0b.
Summary: 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.
Summary: I could not play this game although my system exceeds the requirements specified on the box. My computer freezes every time I load a game. In addition, the graphics do not look real. It doesnt deserve any star. Waste of money!
