RailWorks 2 Train Simulator Rolls in Retail

Chatham, UK-October 20, 2010-Railsimulator.com Ltd., the leading innovator of rail simulation and modeling tools, announced today that RailWorks 2 Train Simulator is available to download on Steam and will be in retail stores shortly. The most realistic rail simulator on the market, RailWorks 2 enables enthusiasts to expand their virtual railroads in any way they wish. Current owners of the previous RailWorks product will be able to upgrade to RailWorks 2 for absolutely no additional charge.

"With most railroad simulators, players feel they need to get every update and expansion that comes out," says Paul Jackson CEO of Railsimulator.com. "RailWorks functions more like a traditional model railroad in that users can choose which add-ons, expansions and scenarios most appeal to them."

RailWorks 2 will be the most significant leap forward for rail simulators in a decade, offering a range of new features to make it more accessible to newcomers, plus enhancements and additional features to deliver greater playability and realism for experienced users. The core kit contains everything a player needs to set up and begin operating an extensive railroad, including train simulation, landscaping tools and downloadable content, and the software is updated automatically after purchase. Features include:

·         A complete railroad set up including 13 locomotives, an assortment of rolling stock, eight different routes, and a huge variety of scenery.

·         'RS Cab Control': A heads up display for locomotive drivers, incorporating driver knowledge such as signaling, visual controls as well as in-game controls like camera angle. 

·         'RS Career System': For the first time, RailWorks fans will be able to compare themselves to other users and have a precise method of achievement. Go head-to-head against other players, and set personal achievements on Career System scenarios.

Beyond the basic kit, users can choose from a wide variety of add-ons, scenarios and expansions to build the railway of their dreams. New content in both the RailWorks Ready and RailWorks Optimized lines include new locomotives, rolling stock and career scenarios, routes and landscapes, themed scenarios, and more. 

RailWorks 2 is available via download on Steam and at selected retailers, and current RailWorks owners will get the update absolutely free. For more information and to download a Quick Start guide, please visit http://www.railsimulator.com
