The 2014 edition of Rail Simulator, or Train Simulator, offers a new career system and new menus. It’s the best choice if you have just decided to try out train sims. Its new menus are fresh looking and easier to use compared to its previous editions. It’s a gateway to deciding which routes to take or the season and time of day you want to drive in. On the other hand, its new and rational career system will surprise you with its attempt to imitate racing sims. At first, you will be given a full list of routes you can take as your scenarios. Here, you will be able to earn points for your ability to drive and gather your overall score at the end of each mission or scenario. There are also Steam achievements to unlock. Here, you can buy additional routes or individual locomotives to add in your collection. Sales do happen from time to time, so better check it frequently.


  • Features accurate visuals of trains and sceneries
  • Offers various routes to choose from


  • Only 3 routes are available for free



Only an Enhanced and Updated Copy of the Previous Edition

The 2014 edition of what many of its gamers say as the world’s favorite train simulator, does not contain steam locomotives at all. New features are significantly pretty thin as well. If you decide to buy it, it’s like you just bought its 2013 version, but only with different rolling stock and routes. It features engine changes, but the changes were so minor that they could have been provided in a free patch. Other features include a new zoom function and greater draw distances. It also features a train builder where players get to assemble their own trains, so they can use them for Quick Drive sessions. This is not to discourage you, but I also noticed that its AI is problematic because it can’t cope with complex scenarios. In some places, sound remains unconvincing, too. I just wish it has a multiplayer mode, and yet, no it has not. In short, it is boring. On the other hand, I did enjoy some electric trains, freight scenario, and there are actually a number of high quality detailed routes.


  • Features some playable electric trains
  • Includes a few high quality detailed routes


  • It has no multiplayer mode



Rail Simulator software user review for phpNuke by James Meyette.

Rail simulator for pc is in my opinion one of the best train simulators available even in the trial version you have access to a wide variety of trains to try out and you feel fully immersed in the product almost as if you are driving a real train.

If you end up enjoying the software by trying out the trial then you can go to origin.com and download it for the small price of $9.99 which really isn’t bad by any means for a simulation game, as most can be upwards of $40.00 even for the older ones that are available through most publishers.

The aspect of travel while playing this game makes immersion that much greater as you get to see places in the country that you may have never seen before, the country side, or some cities that you have never seen.

As I mentioned a little bit earlier you are able to take control of many different types of trains, whether those are from present day or historic style trains including diesel, and steam engines.

In conclusion, Rail simulator is a great sim game for anyone who enjoys these types of titles.


  • Fun to play for people who enjoy sim games
  • Easy to use interface allows you to get right into playing


  • The full version is not free
  • The graphics are semi low quality even on the best of computers.

Rail Simulator is a train simulator for PC in which players will feel like real machinists driving along thousands of kilometers of different environments.

Player's task is simple: transporting passengers to their destinations or moving merchandise from one place to another. The challenge in Rail Simulator is to manage this vehicle without risking people’s or load’s integrity and fulfilling schedules in order to get a good score.

This game has realistic graphics and sounds. In fact, the landscapes that players can see from the train are views from England.

Can be adapted to players’ preferences

The game provides three difficulty levels: easy, intermediate or expert mode. This allows players to take the most of the driving experience or relax and enjoy the views.

With Rail Simulator users can select different locomotives according to their energy source: diesel, vapor or electric.

They will be able to manage and drive the train using both the mouse and the keyboard. Besides, they can change the viewing angle placing the camera in different points.
