Train Sim World 2
#1
Well this is something you don't hear about to often but, there is a game for PC, PS5, & Xbox that is called Train Sim World 2. You can actually play on real life routes that are in the game. You can also purchase other routes to play on as well. Three notable routes are Clinchfield, Sand Patch Grade and Sherman Hill. For those of you that have time and want a different experience or to kill some down time I suggest you go and download this game on one of the systems. Below are a couple screen shots from the game. I've been playing this game for about 2-3 months. The level of detail in this game is beyond what I expected and honestly I can't get enough of this game. They are also in the process of testing out the Horseshoe Curve Route which will go from Altoona, Pa to Johnstown, Pa with the South Fork branch included.

I can smell a steam post ten blocks away, and when I do, clear the tracks because the steam express will be hi ballin through

Your screenshots are quite impressive. I have not played a train simulator in many years. The last one I did was Trainz and I did not like it. I found it boring and bothersome to use. They seemed to be more worried about someone pirating the game instead of the actual game content.

Do they have only modern trains or do they have some historical ones?

The have today modern consists and diesels. They have the GP38-2, SD40, SD40-2, SD70ACe, C40-8W, and AC4400CW, for the american routes. The clichfield route only has the F7 & SD40. Sandpatch has all but the F7, Sherman Hill has the SD70ACe & SD40-2, Cane Creek has the AC4400CW & SD40-2. They are working on steam right now but no american steam, just overseas steam at the moment. They are plenty more routes with other locomotives that are overseas. If you want to check it out go to https://live.dovetailgames.com/live/train-sim-world

I have plenty more screenshots while playing. The best part I found on Sand Patch was that the Salisbury Viaduct on the grade. You get to load coal from 2 mines along the route which is Shaw Mine and Rockwood.
