• Announcing American Classics - Train Sim Pack

    Just Trains & Train Artisan Bring The American Classics Alive

    Reknowned train-sim developer, Train Artisan and the Just Trains division of popular sim publisher Just Flight have teamed up - and the result is nothing less than spectacular!

    American Classics - Train Sim Pack is a an expansion for Microsoft's Train Simulator - the defacto sim amongst PC-owning railroad hobbyists. It brings alive America's most loved steam and diesel locomotives of the 1930's and 50's from New York's Central railroad together with 14 exciting new activities and totally authentic period rolling stock.

    Just Trains has put together a boxed retail package of Train Artisan's best work, with comprehensive manual, CD-ROM and a gorgeous set of six postcards featuring exclusive images from acclaimed railroad artist Verne Horton.

    As talented founder of Train Artisan, Cyrus Lum, explains:

    "We're proud to make this tribute to the New York Central Railroad available to all of those train-simmers and train fans out there. It was really fun bringing this famous "fallen flag" back to life!

    The time period that we decided to model was very pivotal as it marked the twilight of steam and the dawn of the diesel age in railroad passenger service. Nothing beats "High-Balling" these sleek locomotives down the Northeast Corridor at 100+ miles an hour. If you're looking for fun, try racing a streamlined steam engine against the dual engined E7 diesel or take it easy and kick back in the observation car while you listen to some custom music made especially for the American Classics package."


    Just Trains MD, Mungo Amyatt-Leir, commented "We're cock-a-hoop to be working with such immensely talented train-sim modellers and designers - these are best looking trains we've ever seen of this era, period. We know how many people find getting add-ons to work within Train Simulator difficult and we've put a lot of work into American Classics to make easy to use, with the additions of features like the CabView utility. With all the great stuff included it is excellent value and highly collectible."

    American Classics will ship on April 24th - available with a money-back guarantee direct from Just Trains at www.justtrains.net and at major retailers throughout Europe and other territories. Expected retail price will be under £25/€35.

    See www.justflight.com and www.justtrains.net for details and screen shots.
