From Review: "Every little kid reaches a point in their life when they develop a fascination with trains. Sometimes it proves to be just a phase which is gone almost as quickly as it started or it grows into a love that lasts a lifetime. When it does become a lifelong hobby it often becomes expensive and grows to encompass things far beyond a variety of Thomas the Train Engine toys. Have you ever seen the realistic model train set ups that true enthusiasts get involved with? They are as detailed and intricate as anything that you have ever seen. They are also super complicated, as is a realistic train simulator, which is exactly what Railworks 3: Train Simulator 2012 (TS12) is."
