This is the game that Rail enthusiasts have been waiting for!This is the game that Rail enthusiasts have been waiting for! Rail Simulator provides the most realistic simulation of trains possible on a PC. Plus we provide you, the player, with powerful tools to create your own railway world.
The ability to add additional material to the simulation has been central in the design of the simulation. Rail Simulator allows easy inclusion of add-on material covering new routes, rolling stock and additional missions. We are currently working with third party developers and expect to have additional add-ons for the game available shortly after its release. Of great importance to the more enthusiastic railway fan is the ability to create their own additional routes, so included with Rail Simulator is an editor that allows the creation of new environments. These tools have been developed with simplicity in mind, so as to encourage the development and exchange of user-generated content, which can be shared and used by other railway enthusiasts.
Stunningly realistic graphics & audio
The game makes full use of modern graphics cards and EAX audio to achieve a believable environment
Accurate train driving simulation.
Careful measurement, modelling and simulation of real trains allow us to provide highly accurate handling characteristics.
Steam, Diesel and Electric trains.
Contemporary and historic trains are provided with the game to appeal to all types of train enthusiast.
Three levels of driving difficulty.
Each train can be driven in easy, intermediate or expert mode. Easy provides a wonderful "install and go" experience which allows even the novice driver to experience the thrill of train driving. But be warned, expert mode requires an attention to detail in common with driving the actual train - take special care of every little detail!
Passenger and Freight operations.
The environments and rolling stock supplied with the game let you focus on driving both passenger and freight - each needing its own specific skills.
Hours of missions to test your skill as a train driver.
The game comes supplied with 15 scenarios to test your skill as a train driver. Can you meet the demanding task of driving a busy commuter train? Or maybe collecting the components of a freight load and delivering all of the parts on time to the right destination? Your performance on each mission is measured to provide feedback on your personal performance as a train driver.
If you prefer a more leisurely approach, free-roam allows to you explore the routes at your own pace.
Four real-world routes.
The game comes supplied with four routes (the four included are determined by the country of purchase). Each one is on average 90 miles long and both historic and current environments are featured.
