Summary: I bought this a few days ago it was very very fast shipping since it was going from across the country when I installed it and loaded it up and started driving hundreds of tons of steel and freight the sounds and physics were just amazing!
Had tons of fun with the japanese and amtrak trains.

Summary: Great game by Microsoft, even though it's 12 years old. I'd like to see the company make a new one, because the computers of yesterday couldn't handle the graphics, unless you purchased all high end gaming equipment.
Summary: This is a Long Term review. I bought Train Simulator when it debuted near the start of the millenium. I have also bought other train simulators but it is the Microsoft program I enjoy the most.
Summary: Fairly realistic simulation of Diesel,Elecric and Steam Engines, with seasons and weather. Add ons available. Some free, some not. I think you have be a srong advocate of trains not to get somewhat bored driving theses. There are tasks that you can do , some fairly difficult.
