Train Sim is an interesting diversion, but I find it to be very un-realistic. I have over 12 years behind the throttle, and I can tell you first hand that the game just does not behave like the real thing. Dynamics dont hold back as well as they should, and I have never saw a first service application stop a 100 car train....but its still fun to mess with.

My favorite thng is to run steam. The UP steam pack (big boys and such) and the NKP berks are most groovy, and DO behave a lot like the real thing. IF you want a REAL train sim challange, put together a decent size passenger train, turnoff the automatic fireman, and run that puppy and fire it at the same time... it will keep ya on your toes!!
