Op de homepage van Microsoft's Train Simulator is te lezen dat het spel gold gegaan. Er staat niet wanneer het spel in de winkels komt te liggen maar dat kan niet lang meer duren Microsoft today announced that Train Simulator, which brings the power and excitement of some of the world's most famous trains to the PC, has gone gold. This means that the product is completed and is expected to hit store shelves in the U.S. by early June. Train Simulator places the player in the role of engineer with unprecedented realism, exciting real world rail challenges, and the tools to recreate almost any railroad experience in the world.

Lifelike engineer's control panels, scenery and weather, and accurate elevations and terrain data mirror real-world train travel. Player activities can include anything from keeping passenger time schedules while managing unforeseen barriers and negotiating freight through mountain passes in winter storms to navigating some of the world's busiest commuter lines. Train Simulator includes nine different trains, ranging from steam locomotives and modern diesels to high-speed electric "bullet trains." Players can travel any of six famous rail routes from around the globe, including the Flying Scotsman's Settle to Carlisle and BNSF's famous Maria's Pass route. Binnenkort kan de treinbaan in de kast en kunnen met treintjes gaan spelen op de PC
