A quiet little genre, hidden away in the midst of myriad first-person shooters, racers and beat-em-ups, the railway simulation game is one that, despite lacking a massive fanbase, is extremely playable and actually quite addictive. Trainz was one of genre’s most popular titles after Microsoft Train Simulator, and developer Auran has now unleashed Trainz Railway Simulator 2004 for PC.

As a game, Trainz 2004 excels in several different playing styles. As a driving simulator players can choose from more than 50 real world locomotives, and are free to download hundreds more via the wonder of the Internet. Boasting a highly accurate game engine, Trainz 2004 features unique controls for steam, diesel and electric trains. Real life engineers have approved in-game physics, and the entire game world has been rendered in crisp 3D.

But it’s also a solid industry simulator. The surrounding network of commercial and industrial companies can put great demand on your freshly built railway infrastructure. As Yardmaster, you’ll be responsible for controlling the flow of goods and ensuring cargo gets to its destination on time. In fact, your own level of skill will affect production levels throughout the world.

Finally, Trainz 2004 allows players to design their own environments using a variety of 3D tools. This is perhaps the most creative aspect of the game and has players building a complete railway network virtually from scratch. You’ll be able to move mountains, plant forests and even construct towns and cities.

Trainz Railway Simulator 2004 is undoubtedly one of the most extensive games of its kind, and in the absence of a Microsoft Train Simulator sequel, it’s the perfect choice for railway enthusiasts.
