  1. A relaxing and fun game for anyone who likes trains and casual games. Players who require more strategy may be less enthusiastic.
  2. A unique and strangely satisfying venture into the realm of railways operation. It can be extremely peaceful or bustling and chaotic depending on how you choose to play.

    Rail Simulator is a piece of software that seems to accomplish what it set out to do. It doesn't do it with much panache, graphical or otherwise, but it gets it done.
