Neither does Jr., but he needs his train fix. For his recent birthday, he got some more wooden train tracks, a trip to Reno in the California Zephyr, a party at the RR museum UP caboose, and now he is anxiously waiting for the game to arrive this Monday. Yes, even people started to realize that Jr. is NOT a train fanatic, it is now an OBSESSION.

Looks like Microsoft is going to have some stiff competition with their Train Simulator 2 (based on the FSX graphics technology).
I want to see the steam models, and even resurrect abandoned railroad lines in my area. That will be as close as I can relive the past...New York Central 4-8-4 Niagaras and 4-6-4 Hudsons running on the ex-Lake Shore & Michigan Central, Mad River & Lake Erie, Pittsburgh & Lake Erie, and Toledo & Ohio Central Railroad(s). Maybe add the Nickel Plate, Pennsy, and the Baltimore & Ohio lines as well
He loved it! April is the perfect time for it. For $125 per day, you get the caboose (no heating or cooling), two parking passes, and 12 adult/youth tickets to the museum. Children 5 and under go to the museum for free. The only problem we had was several people who took tours inside the caboose.

Umm, don't wish to sound mean here...but isn't a train SIM just a wee bit boring?? It's not like they bank and turn and land and stuff, you just press "go" and occaisionally "stop"....you don't steer....WTF????
Am I missing something here or have i stepped into a portal to a very scary place????
