New Train Sim from Microsoft

See this news item at Microsoft Game Studios. It appears Microsoft is indeed working on a new version of MSTS - not that I ever doubted it would happen someday. Unfortunately, there's very little info here, so we have no idea of when to expect the real thing or how far they are along the way they are or what hurdles have to be overcome to ensure it will ever see the light of day. Still, it's interesting to know something is in the works.

Meet Ben Neal

See the VR Reading Room for John D'Angelo's interview of this talented young steam locomotive builder for Trainz.


M-Line for TRS 2006

See my VR Reading Room for a new article and download: "Boston's M-Line in N Scale and Trainz."

This traction route is inspired by Boston's Mattapan-Ashmont Line. It fits a single Trainz baseboard and requires no assets other than those that come standard with TRS 2006. SP-1 is required.
