I spotted Trainz Driver Edition at Target last week. The three-disk set sells for $9.99. See my V-Scaler website for a full review.

Sid Meier's Railroads released

Sid Meier's Railroads was scheduled to be released 16 October 2006. Look for it at your favorite game source. You can read more about this follow-up to Railroad Tycoon at the official website. For those who have forgotten, or maybe weren't here when it happened, Sid Meier is the creator of the original RR Tycoon. He's back!

Subway Construction Set from ProTrainz

The long awaited Subway Construction for Trainz (SP3 and later) has been released by Magicland. You can get it at the Trainz Download Station. Just search for Subway. There are 50 items to be downloaded, some with dependencies (which Download Helper takes care of nicely). Instructions are available at the ProTrainz website and are in a 15-page Adobe Acrobat file.

This should make building subway routes a lot easier, but I would suggest reading the manual first. I, for one, am looking forward to giving this set a try.

BTW - when you go to the ProTrainz website, have a look around. There are a lot of great downloads, many free. You can also get collections, including the Subway Construction Set, on CD for a nominal charge. For people with dial-up connections, and those who like things neatly packaged, this is very handy.
