For decades an ever increasing collection of dedicated individuals have looked upon their rela- tionship with locomotives with a sense of pride and deep respect – with roots often firmly set in either steam, diesel or electric. No matter where our own loyalties reside, the latest installment of Train Simulator will take you aboard for a journey that is sure to encourage our admiration for these wonderful living breathing technological marvels.
You may recall that almost a year ago, I travelled down to Chatham’s Historic Dockyard to speak to the people behind a rail simulator known as RailWorks 2.
Well I couldnt resist an invitation to view their most recent developments – so after packing my audio and video equipment I popped along to view their latest release of RailWorks 3 – also known as Train Simulator 2012.
In the following video, we will find out all about the wonderful work created by these talented individuals as we delve into the delights of Train Simulator 2012.
