    Translation of the intro text on the YT video........

    "Sitting on a locomotive yourself and driving a train along the route - and doing it exactly like on the real train, that's the dream of many hobby railroaders.
    This dream can be fulfilled, there are now some train simulators. But ZuSi is a very special one, because it is also used on simulators for real engine driver training.
    Railway romance met the ZuSi inventor, Carsten Hölscher, at the North German Railway Technical School in Braunschweig.
    This clip was uploaded to the Eisenbahn-Romantik online pages in September 2022.

    It's still £55 (GBP) on Steam which is a little rich for my taste. Also topically, given what's happened with TSW3 though hopefully soon to be rectified, you cannot save a run in progress. If it ever went on sale at 50% off I might try it, but thus far it's never received a substantial discount.

    Mine too, Vern....and considering that (AFAIK) there is no English translation, it's not for me.

    Save your money Vern. I brought Zusi 3 over a year ago and used it for about 2 days, uninstalled it and deleted it from my steam library. Despite the physics and amazing advanced signal systems, it's basically drive from point A to point B on a scripted timetable that has some random variation.

    It does have a scenario editor but doesn't have freedom of movement to explore routes and throw switches like Run 8 or even Trainz for that matter. The ability to have switching activities for freight trains and interacting with industries is none existent.
    From memory it did come with some English translated manuals which where in the main folder. Zusi 3 has only been updated once in the past year, not what I would call good support for a program that is expensive.

    Cheers
    James

    Thanks James. I have also heard it doesn’t play nice with 4K/UHD displays, the old fixed sized font problem where it looks tiny and can’t be adjusted.

    Will probably save my sale money for Trainz 22.

    It does look good, and you can do what you like in the game with the editorial tools, and manually switch points on every route, of course, however, having purchased thousands of dollar's worth of British, European and North American locomotives, wagons, and routes, since 2006, plus other 3rd party DLC, I doubt any of it will play in this new version, I'm not sure their backwards compatibility will stretch to 16 years, and I'm positive every asset will need repairing beforehand, and that'd take months to do, so, there's no point in obtaining it, really.....
