OK, I've kept quite long enough. What the hell is BVE?
I'm an excellent speler. I jus can't type worth a damn!

Quote from Train Sim Central
BVE is a Direct 3D Japanese Cab View train driving simulator, made in Japan by Mackoy. It offers a realistic cab view, excellent sound, and very good train physics. My favourite feature is the simulation of sway around curves, rocking whilst braking, and the bump of pointwork and rail joints. As a cab view sim, it doesn't get more realistic than this!
Although originally limited to Japanese routes and trains, there is now extensive English language support, and routes and trains available from just about every continent in the world.
And my thoughts of BVE
BVE is a cab view simulator, kinda simular to Microsoft Train Simulator, except without the internal views, and no switching...etc...etc. The sounds in BVE destory what MSTS can do (yes i am serious) The bumping, rocking back and forth at the station, simulating passengers boarding, Flange squeal, braking, station sounds, dispatcher talking, working signals, etc etc... I won't say it all, that'll spoil the rest of the game. If you have a high-end computer, check out http://www.crotrainz.com This is like the main "hub" for BVE news, along with Microsoft Train Simulator, Black 5, Trainmaster 4, etc. here are some other websites...

Sadly, you can not, but maybe in the future. However, go to the BVE Help site, they have actually have an answer to that.
