  1. I downloaded the patch and ran the simulator. Everything is working perfectly! I gotta say Preston, I’m really enjoying the interactive fireman feature. Things get interesting when he makes mistakes which makes me make mistakes, it changes up the experience! Great work!

    • Thanks! The future goal is definitely to expand the capabilities of and interaction with the fireman. The engines themselves I think are pretty complete, so the next step in making this more realistic is to bring the multi-crew aspect of railroading to the sim.

      I’m aware that not everyone is liking this update because the fireman is no longer “magic”. Even at expert experience setting, you still have to work with him to run the engine smoothly. I plan on covering this in an upcoming tutorial video.

      • I suppose it’s a tough situation because 1/2 the rail fans want it to be user friendly; I have a friend who was excited to play it, but got easily overwhelmed and gave up…but the other 1/2 like me, enjoy the realistic operation. I’ve always wanted to learn how to operate the Disneyland trains the way they are actually run, and this sim is perfect for me. I don’t think there’s any steam locomotive sim in the world, this accurate!
