I have used Trainz since the incarnation and while it has some rough edges and somewhat arcane maintenance and updating issues, the behavior of the basic simulator and the richness of detail in the included railroad layouts is superb. A train simulator ( also railroad simulator or railway simulator) is a computer based simulation of rail transport operations.
They are generally large complicated software packages modeling a 3D virtual reality world implemented both as commercial trainers, and consumer computer game software with ' play modes' which lets the user interact by stepping inside the virtual world. This month’ s feature is the Spokane International Railway ( SIRy) submitted by Mike Pagano, the layout’ s builder and a contributing author to N Scale Railroading magazine.
The SIRy is an N- scale, lightweight, portable layout consisting of 4 sections with two separate track loops depicting the SIRy near Sandpoint in the Idaho panhandle.
