Question is there a Model train PC game?

Can someone recomend a good model train sim for the computer? I've looked on ebay and Amazon but most are either several years old and have out dated graphics or not the model train sim but real train sim games. I 'd like one with good 3-d graphics that will let you build your own layout, add trees,tunnels,buildings etc.Maybe even let your layout run as a screen saver would be nice. thanks for any info...jesse

2 best are Train Simulator 2013 on Steam and Trainz Simulator 12. In my opinion, Train Simulator 2013 is better for driving trains because the graphics are superior and all the cabs have interiors. Trainz Simulator 12 is easier for building your own routes.

Trainz Simulator 12
Train Simulator 2012

EDIT: Sorry, just noticed you wanted a model train sim, these are all real.

If you are looking for a Model Train simulator then My First Train Set might be a good game. It is by the same makers of Trainz Simulator 12. But keep in mind that the game is geared towards little kids.

I found it for only $10 on Amazon as a download and may go for it. But now i'm thinking of go ahead and getting the real train sim also. I have a good gaming computer so i wanted great 3-d graphics, something i could layout with different veiw options.thanks everyone for pointing me in the right direction....jesse

i got "drive a steam engine" (or somethig similar) on the steam store for $2 when it was on sale. it is all 3D too, but not too taxing on the older PC's. Was good fun for the dollars spent. I think you could buy more trains/routes also.

edit. this isnt a model train game.

Cool train sim

Hi,all..I`ll throw this in the mix. Sure some or if not all have heard of it. It`s called CATRAIN. Free download. You can build your own layout,put everything in the way of track work before you actually build it.Not sure of buildings as I just used it for trackwork. Has some trains layouts already made up.
Type in Catrain in your search engine.Hope someone might like to know..

Have fun,sanepilot

I downloaded "My 1st trainset" about 6 hours ago for $9.99 off Amazon and i can already tell i'll be bored with it soon.Only 3 rooms in a house and the garage to lay out a track, no outside layouts. It does have pretty good graphics and alot of camera angles but doesn't have much play value for a adult.It reminds me of a sega dreamcast game "Toy Commander" graphic wise.Glad i didn't pay much for it.Going to look now at the real train sims and see which have the best realistic graphics.Thanks for the heads up on those by the way.
