TRS2004 brings added depth and realism to the experience of
railroading on your PC. You will be able to interact with world
objects and the new working industries add a new sense of purpose
to your driving operations.
Industries spring to life with realistic
Each new industry consumes resources and produces goods. Your
task, as with a real railroad, is to efficiently move theses
goods and resources from one place to another and keep the
wheels of industry turning.
No longer do you have to imagine what happens when you pull
up to the coal hopper or to a lumber yard. You'll wipe coal
dust from your eyes as you watch your hoppers fill up, and
you'll be surrounded by working forklifts as they unload heavy
Make your own railroad activities in minutes
Place a few industries in the easy to use Surveyor editor,
set out your locos and rolling stock and you have created
an instant railroad scenario. Set the appropriate industry
inputs and outputs as you desire and apply Rules to determine
things such as control method, weather conditions and how
many Drivers will be working for you on your railroad. Save
consists for one click placement on other routes and create
your own list of your favorite locos and rolling stock.
Save your progress
Unlimited save slots allow you to pick up where you left off.
Scenarios can theoretically continue for ever.
Realistic physics tested by real engineers, plus amazing new
sounds and special effects. You'll be wiping the sweat from
your brow when you stoke the firebox.
Drivers for every loco
Ever wondered who was driving all those locos? Now you can
appoint drivers, name them, choose their photographs or even
add your own. Issue commands to drive to industries, load
and unload goods, couple and decouple and more. Of course,
at any time you can step in and lend a helping hand.
Taking advantage of the new Auran Jet V2.0 feature set, we've
updated many of the graphics. New techniques such as bump
mapping and vertex shaders add a whole new level of realism
and graphics eyecandy. We've also optimised many of the previous
features so that you can add more objects to your scenes.
New sounds, new signalling, new physics,
The list is too long to mention. We've listened to your feedback
and included many of the suggestions that improve upon previous
Trainz versions including animated windscreen wipers, lat/long
support for real world routes, fixed track segments, improved
headlights and lots more.

10 new steam engines including the Union Pacific 4-8-8-4 Big
Boy and the LNER A4 4-6-2 Mallard
6 new diesels including the UP DD40X and the NSWGR 442
6 new electrics including the DB180 and the Hondekop train car
In addition to this TRS2004 will also contain the
original 13 locos from Trainz V1.0 plus the 16 locos added with
UTC making more than 50 locos and train cars in total!
TRS2004 also features new freight wagons, passenger cars and tank
cars, and dozens of new scenery items, trackside objects and stations.
There are several new routes based on a mix of real world locations
and prototypical operations created by some of the leading route
creators in the community.
Trains and railroads have fascinated people since their inception
200 years ago. In 1804, Richard Trevithick tested his newly invented
steam locomotive which drew 5 cars and a coach with 70 passengers.
25 years later in 1829, the "father" of railroading, George
Stephenson, built the famous "Rocket" locomotive and won
500pounds for hauling a load of cotton at a speed of 26mph. By the
following year, 100 locomotives had been built in England - the
rapid evolution of steam engines had begun in earnest!
Without doubt the invention of the steam locomotive
was the most profoundly influential technical development of the
19th Century. Railroads allowed the transport of goods and passengers
at previously undreamt of speeds and changed the entire dynamics
of society. Above all, railroads are about people. Those who built
the system, those who controlled it, those who worked on it and
those whose lives it affected.
Trainz Railroad Simulator 2004 puts you in control
of building, controlling and managing a variety of railroads from
around the world, from the golden era of steam, through the changeover
to diesels right up to modern day electrics. Are you ready for the
