• Announcing Diesel Railcar Simulator

    Diesel Railcar Simulator

    A train driving simulation set in the British railways of the late 1960's, modelling the passenger diesel multiple units, or 'railcars', of the era.

    Hours of gameplay. The simulator includes a timetable of over 250 Inter-City, semifast, stopping and empty coaching stock train services, varying between 15 and 60 minutes in duration. You can choose to drive any one of them while the other trains run under computer control.

    Great replayability. Your driving style and timekeeping are evaluated and scored upon completing a run. Try the same run again to reach a higher score by braking more accurately or by driving more economically. You'll still need to prepare for suprises as traffic and delays may change from run to run.

    For beginners and experienced trainsimmers alike. Various helpers are included to assist beginning drivers in learning the train controls and operation. An optional key assistant shows which keys to press, when and why. Enable simple controls to operate the train with up/down keys only, while the actual throttle, shifter and brake levers are computer-controlled. Experienced drivers can operate the levers and other controls directly from the keyboard.

    Realistic train behaviour is ensured by detailed physics simulation of vehicle components. The simulator includes BR diesel railcar classes 112, 122, 126 and 127. All parts of the drive train are simulated separately, including starter, engine, fluid coupling, gearbox, torque converter and final drive. Vacuum brake equipment, including high vacuum and train pipes, brake cylinders, vacuum reservoirs and exhausters, is also simulated in detail.

    Feeling of movement. The suspension of each vehicle is made up of axle boxes, brake rigging, bogie frames, bogie planks and bolsters, all individually modelled to make the vehicle bounce, sway and roll over uneven trackwork. The driver's head (camera) also bobs independently of the driving cab.

    Over 50 miles of track in a fictitious route of four lines with different characteristics: a 4-track main line with fast and slow trains often running alongside, a 2-track countryside main line extension with slower trains overtaken in passing loops, a meandering short suburban line, and a mountainous rural single line. The route features semaphore signalling and realistic trackwork with superelevated curves, klothoid transition curves and individual rail joints.

    Diesel Railcar Simulator

    Support the development of the next version. Buying a copy benefits the development of a more advanced train simulation product with a broader scope. See the roadmap of planned features.

    Recommended system for highest quality graphics: Windows PC with dual-core CPU, 4GB RAM, 600MB free disc space and GeForce GTX 750 / Radeon HD 6950 comparable GPU. The sim also has lower graphics quality settings for less performant hardware.
