    So it's at least a year away from release.

    Why do they bother with such an early bait? Pointless.

    A bit like that Trans Siberian Express game/sim that was previewed a while back, still no sign of it.

    I'm having too much fun in the flight sims at present (well more XP11 than FS20) which is why I've been a bit quiet of late on here!

    The publisher (PlayWay) has so many bizarre games in development or released - Priest Simulator is one, Train Station Renovation is another. Some of the games (House Flipper and Car Mechanic Simulator) are quite well regarded for what they are, so this has potential. The more sims the better, right? DTG needs competition to up their game.

    SimRail S.A. are the Developers of the program working in alliance with SimKol who are responsible for providing software for driver training, locomotive simulation, signal/traffic dispatcher simulation to the real company's such as to Newag company for the training in their Newag Dragon locomotive and to Bombardier Transportation for it's locomotives and dispatcher simulation.

    Two examples of SimKol software built into driver/trainer simulators.

    It will be interesting to see how much of this advanced software is carried over from SimKol and translated into the SimRail S.A. product and will they find a balance between full simulation and user friendly software with manuals and tutors that can be understood by people in western English speaking countries. It would be amazing if they implemented full simulation of locomotive cabs, but full simulation of combined signal/traffic dispatcher over a vast area of European networks might too much for most train-simmers.

    Will DTG create their own Priest Simulator, Paul Jackson probably seems himself as God at DTG Towers, so they're halfway there already.......lol
