    Default Train Travel Simulator

    Well, this looks as interesting as watching paint dry. Might be of curiosity to some.

    Well, if you like watching paint dry ... they also have the real thing.

    Well, in that case it cannot be realistic and, therefore, it can't be a simulation of paint drying.

    I've painted a lot of walls, ceilings and furniture over the decades and I have yet to have a wild time whilst the paint was drying.
    Well...that's not quite true; my wife and I often celebrated the drying of the paint.

    So she didn't give you the brush off then?

    It's an intriguing concept (the OP that is) but at first I thought I was just watching a video clip taken from the passenger view in one of the other sims.

    To be of interest it would have to include more than one route and flat forest scenery; I would be looking more for a first person version of the old Hellfire Railrover "bashing" game.

    There seems to be a simulator for everything now, including a lawn mowing simulator.

    What's next? Dishwashing Simulator? Laundry?
