    It's good to have a sim like RailWorks forging ahead. [Sept 2009, p.79]

    Did you spend hours working with model trains when you were younger? Are you entranced with the romantic ideals of the locomotive? Are you a fan of the ultra-realistic sim as it applies to a railed mode of transportation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, RailWorks outwardly promises a fun and fulfilling -- and accurate -- future overflowing with new opportunities.

    Everything you could possibly want. I really REALLY love this - so much better than Microsoft's creaky, buggy old version.

    Don't expect too much - this is not railroading simulator. In my opinion it's just one train modeling and model testing game. While Don't expect too much - this is not railroading simulator. In my opinion it's just one train modeling and model testing game. While modellers have done great job the program itself is most poor compared to other train simulation games. Graphics are not bad but game engine is very buggy and not smooth. Don't expect much functionality. You can make only very basic (drive from A to B) and simple activities. As follower of the Rail Simulator it has most bugs and missing features still not fixed (dispatching, signalling, AI). Seems like developers learned from Trainz experience - just rename it and sell the same crap again and again. To be honest - programmers of Rail Simulator have been like headless chickens - concept is totally missing. Latest patches confirm that nothing is changing - only some graphical fixes and no evolution in basic program. Expand
