ArcRail Train Simulation is a neat simulation tool that lets you get behind the wheel of a train to complete missions.
During your ArcRail Train Simulation mission, you must follow the train signal system's directions. As the train conductor, this will let you control the train so you ultimately end up at the station you're supposed to in one piece.
A choice of scenery, as well as a map editor that lets ArcRail Train Simulation users construct their own train track, are some of the highlights of this program. Users can also choose between steering three different types of trains, including a diesel-automatic, a steam engine and a deisel-electric. The settings allow you to turn the realistic train sounds on and off at will, as well as choose your train of choice.
Unfortunately, ArcRail Train Simulation is a pretty rudimentary program, with terrible graphics and not much speed. Fans of simulation programs like Need for Speed Underground will likely be sorely disappointed.
The trial version of ArcRail Train Simulation only lets you run your train for 20 kilometers (about 12 miles) before requiring you to purchase a license code.
For hardcore train enthusiasts, ArcRail Train Simulation might be a fun adventure. For everyone else, it gets dull really quickly.
