Many still recall when the train was their principal means of travel, whether to school or work, to visit friends and relatives, or to go on holiday. And it wasn't just people that went by rail: so did the coal that heated homes, the food that filled them and the bricks that built them.

Trainz Railways is the first in a new series of standalone rail simulations. This first release in the series features an accurate simulation of an extensive section of New York's Harlem line as well as Trainz Railways Metropolis Edition. Harlem Line: 40 miles of New York's Harlem Line, including 20 stations and covering a wide variety of landscapes, are realistically represented in a 3D virtual world - rule the rails with a fast express train or stop at stations and convey commuters along the route. The Harlem Line simulation is a carefully researched and wholly convincing railway simulation experience. Metropolis Edition: Operate modern trams around Modula City, a thriving conceptual coastal city - take holidaymakers over the causeway to a beautiful resort island and push your tram to the limit on the high-speed coastal track. Amazing lighting art and cleverly planned routines make this a fascinating and visually stunning simulation. Trainz Railways will appeal to both complete newcomers to virtual railways as well as to existing Trainz owners and experienced train sim enthusiasts, whether you want to travel on fully functioning routes, edit the supplied maps and sessions, or use the components to build your own creations.Flexible cab signalling systemImproved train headlight systemTrain-controlled sounds, lights and boom gates at built-in road crossingsAutomatic Train Protection optionsNew sound functions for better representation of electric tractionA new Freeway feature supporting and including one-way and multi-lane roadsRemodelled roadway traffic featuring functioning headlightsComputerised in-cab displaysImproved Head-Up Display optionImproved session design optionsFavourite TRS2006 items can be imported by advanced users, and Trainz Railways

Well the British railways are in a bit of a state. Unsafe, late and unreliable are three words that come to mind. Well those three words don't go with all of Britain's railways. Well those three words certainly don't go with Chiltern Railways, who I use a lot. They provide services between Birmingham, the West Midlands and London.

Advantages: Nice way to pass a couple of hours if you want to relax. Disadvantages: With Snowdon railway across the road it may not be your first choice train journey.
...climbing Mount Snowdon so good places to park cars is important. Llanberis itself is only a small town so finding the Lakeside Railway wasn?t too difficult.
LLANBERIS LAKESDIDE RAILWAY.
The lakeside railway runs from the 12th February to the 21st December. We had an information leaflet that had a very detailed timetable. The timetable was colour coded and had four separate timetables A, B, C and D...
Advantages: A true story of one man's courage Disadvantages: Very distressing at times
...As many of you will already know, I am an avid reader of anything and everything. I've always had a love of books and will read any book placed in front of me. Some subjects will just captivate my interest and, when my dad lent this book to me, I did not think that a book about railways would be interesting. How wrong I was!
The RRP on this is £7.99, although if you shop around, it can be...
