Best Simulator???

Recommended Posts

There's a lot more to railways than driving trains. The whole purpose is to shift freight and, to a much lesser degree, tolerate passengers.

I find the best way to play trains on line is via the Pixel Federation's "TrainStation".

It is not 3D realism but it does bring into play the decisions of which loco/wagon to use for which job. That, in my mind as an ex railwayman, is much more realistic railroading than any visual effects.

I use Trainsimulator 2018. Fantastic bit of software, but requires some computer power to process it. Lots of the newer stuff, especially from the likes of Armstrong Powerhouse, are incredibly detailed and can't be beaten. You only have to look here to see.

Another thing you'll have to be careful of is money. It easily engulfs your money if you're not careful.

The Churnet Valley and Keithley & Worth are currently available (the latter being WIP still) for free here - https://www.vulcanproductions.co.uk/route-downloads.html

One thing to watch with these free routes, reskins and such is that they often use payware base models. So before downloading, check what they require.
