Train driving in a virtual world

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a real train driver, perhaps taking the controls of a class 43 HST out of Paddington station and blasting it along the Great Western Main Line at up to 125mph, you can do it from your armchair with Dovetail Games’ Train Sim World that’s out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

The first-person train simulator brings to life the experience of operating powerful and realistic trains on authentic replicas of some of the world’s most amazing railways.

You can experience some of the most hi-tech modern traction driving cabs in the business and watch the scenery flying by.

You can choose just how you want to play, taking control of and mastering powerful locomotives, running to time, carrying out important tasks or simply riding along as a passenger and watching the world go by.

You can watch all the action unfold and capture amazing screenshots, or go exploring to hunt down hidden collectables.
