My son lived in Benson way back in the late 1980's. There was nothing like this back then even though Benson was a UP town.

My wife got me a train simulator for my computer. It was for the operating system I used to have. I don't know if it will work on this one. It was pretty cool. Had a dead mans button you had to hit every so many seconds or an alarm will come on. Had to obey speed limit
signs or you would derail on a curve. Had to slow up early to come into a station. Need to try it. You don't get a certificate though.

One can do that right now in one's own home with a Roco z21, an Android or iOS tablet, and a Roco locomotive that has a built-in camera...

I live a few miles south of Benson (Hereford). I'll have to go check it out.
