Actually only about 3 at that website forsale for download.I tried doing a search for addons on Amazon and Ebay but no luck.I was hoping for a northwest area route.I think the game has 4 U.S. ones built in. One Appalachian coal route and a southwest desert one I know for sure.Anybody know of a good website to download addons for TRAINZ series sims,let me know.Thanks....jesse

Alright, first if I may ask, why Trainz? I never liked Trainz because of lack of graphics and programming. Myself, I use Rail Simulator. Sure, the trains cost more, but the graphics and animation is so much better detailed. The trains are made by many people out there and you can even make one yourself. However, Trainz does not offer many different maps. I'm sure there is mods out there somewhere, but that's where you can get into virus's and stuff.

It was the only one walmart had but i'll look for Rail sim on Amazon or Ebay.I have several tank and sub sims, no reason not to have another railroad one.Thanks for recommendation.

I bought mine online. Never have seen Rail Simulator at Wal-Mart. Watch some videos, you will be impressed.

I might have messed up.I ordered Train Simulator 2013 from Amazon for $29 free shipping and came back here and it was suppose to be rail Simulator. Owell, it was rated better than the Trainz 2012 I got.I also noticed that my 1st game is named "Railroad Simulator powered by Trainz 12". I didn't notice this till I went to register at Auran and a list dropped down. Getting old. Gonna have to start writing stuff like that down.

O well, you might like it better. Don't know unless you try.
