      Having been here over 18 years and watching our hobby and interest change in that span to what we have today I would say that you have done one hell of a job rebuilding this website to todays standards while creating continuity without interruption or integrity and should be commended for such a fine job. I look forward to many years here as a member.
      Thanks Eric

  • State of the Site: May 2024
    by eric

    Where has the year gone? Here we are almost in the month of June, my granddaughter is out of school again, and my wife's tomato patch looks to be off to a good start. Still waiting for the cicadas to hatch up in our neck of the woods, but I can't say I'm too concerned if they don't manage to show up. They're ugly and the dogs will probably be a bit freaked out...

    This week got off to a very interesting start... a perennial favorite here at Trainsim.Com has an update: the Full Bucket...

  • Memorial Day
    by eric



    It's Memorial Day in the United States.

    As most Americans will be enjoying the day off from work today, I wanted to write and acknowledge that our very ability to enjoy a holiday came at a very high price, which was paid for by those who gave their lives in conflict.

    Previously known as Decoration Day, this is not a day of celebration. It's not intended to be a day for parties, boating or barbecues.

    It is a day of commemoration, specifically set...

  • 3dTrains ORTS and v4 F-Units now available
    by eric

    If you're a fan of EMD F-Units, chances are one of the 3DTrains options posted to the Store this week will fit right in with your MSTS/ORTS collection. The ORTS Santa Fe F7 pack is designed for OpenRails, including a true 3D cab. The model detail is outstanding, and looks incredible pulling the El Capitan cars from NAVS in the library. A few folks have already told me the cab works great on other E and F units, so it may be worth the purchase just for that added feature and realism. There are also 13 v4...

  • Run8 Viewliner II Pack
    by eric

    Just in time for the summer travel season, the team at Run8Studios.com have come out with their Viewliner II pack, as well as v3 Update 15.

    Viewliners were developed in the 1990's to replace the remaining "Heritage" sleeping car fleet that had served Amtrak for over 25 years, and had been with the predecessor roads prior to that. A new modular approach was used for construction of the dorms, sleepers and diners. The shell of the car is physically separate from the interior. Duri...

  • Pacific Surfliner available in the Store
    by eric

    Now available.... the 3DTrains Pacific Surfliner trainset. The Surfliner has a special place in my railfanning history, so I'm really happy to see this available again. We used to camp almost monthly at San Clemente and San Onofre, and would walk past the tracks daily going down to the beach. Pausing to watch the Surfliners roll by was always part of those beach days for me. I've long been a fan of F59PHI's, having ridden behind them countless times in Texas on the Trinity Railway Express, a...
