Product Description

Product Description Amazon.com Review 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 Product Description Train Simulator brings 70 years of railroading to life on your computer. It recreates real trains and routes, with authentic landscapes and real-world challenges.

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. The hardest thing to master is keeping your speed under control on grades and within speed zones. I come back to this sim from time to time, become an engineer for awhile and then go to some other virtual pastime. I think Microsoft has stopped development but there are forums to help you on various aspects ot this train sim.

This game has a large following and tons of support online. That said... I felt it was too limited. It seemed very limited in what a player could do. If I wanted to design my own track, or NOT play an adventure it was not worth the effort.

When I purchased it, I got a good deal and the seller was great, but since it was not optimized for Windows 8, I needed to run it in compatibility mode to work with Windows 8. I was able to install it on my computer, but not actually run it and use it. I really like Train Simulators but I would not recommend this game for someone with Windows 8 or higher installed on their computer.

I put one star because I can't use it on any of my operating systems. It only works on Windows XP and various other early Windows software which I do not have. This isn't the seller's fault; I just didn't look at the requirements or anticipate this type of problem. My guess is it will work okay if you have the required software.

I purchased this simulator without giving much thought to the operating system. I think I am so used to buying games from "Good old Games" where there have engineered their older games to play on the newest operating systems that it never occurred to me I could be buying a game that would not work. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because I had the game many years ago when it first came out and enjoyed the challenges the game posed for the player and I wanted to enjoy it again. It is a cool game if you have a system that will play it. Maybe I will try the XP emulator mode but one review said they had XP and still had problems.

Once installed, I could not play it becuase the PC would tell me to install the CD - which was already installed.
I tried to use another PC, with the same result.
A friend of mine who is an expert technicialn found a patch to allow me to play the game without reinserting the CD, once installed.
But the game did not allow the controls to be used, I finally had to turn off the PC....
I think I bought a piece of junk.
