Nostalgic Software has announced the release of SteamTRAIN 4.2. The latest incarnation of the 1800's era steam train simulation introduces Windows PC support to the previously Mac only sim as well as a lower price. SteamTRAIN puts players in the roles of engineer and crew.
More about the SteamTRAIN 3:
Your train will travel between stations, up and down grades, negotiate curves, switch tracks, and couple/uncouple cars. Controls include the throttle, boiler pressure, traction sand, air brakes, manual couplers, and track switches. A new mixed-weather option includes clear skies, rain and snow plus day/night -- all in one run. For more information about SteamTRAIN head over to the link listed below.
Updated Dispatcher Mode offers hours of real train operation challenges. At one terminal, you select loco(s) from the roundhouse using the turntable. Then assemble the marked cars into a passenger, freight or mixed train. Travel to opposite terminal picking up and dropping off cars along the way to attain a score. Several options add difficulty such as opposing Robo train, steep grades, and mixed weather.
To download a Mac or PC demo of SteamTRAIN 4.2, head over to the web site NostWare.com. Help and Controls files are separate downloads. Purchase ST 4.2 for $12 (40% reduction). ST 4.2 is Free for any ST 3 or 4 customers from 2012 on.
