Every train fan wants to create their own virtual railway system, manage a busy infrastructure of rail and industry or just drive some of the most fantastic virtual trains ever built. Some of them want to do all three and so getting the latest version of Railway Simulator 2004 will be at the top of everyone's timetable!

This latest version of Railway Simulator now includes virtual passengers and many other great enhancements such as timetables, improved signalling, improved multiple AI train handling and added realism with new interactive industry refinements and object handling.


  • As a driver you can immerse yourself in a totally realistic and interactive world. Choose from high-speed passenger runs, driving powerful steam classics, shunting cars in a busy industrial yard, or carefully navigating a 200-ton logging train down a steep mountain range.


  • Whether your passion is for steam, diesel or electric, you'll find your favourite locomotives are represented in this fantastic simulator.


  • Now comes with passengers that alight and board at stations – doors open and close, and passengers can be seen inside carriages.


  • If you're the yardmaster you'll need to manage your drivers as they carry out their daily tasks. Ensure your trains are in the right place at the right time to keep pace with supply and demand from the interactive industries.


  • You can also become a route builder and create your own routes and virual worlds using the powerful but easy to use tools that come with the simulator.


  • When you're the operations manager it's your job to set industry production levels, commodity requirements and passenger schedules and create multiple task lists for your drivers in a few simple steps.
