Microsoft's 'Simulator' franchise expands once again with its newest addition: the MS Train Simulator. Take to the rails in such real-life locations and routes as Philadelphia to Washington D.C., become a hard-trained engineer to operate freight train at Northwest Corridor, and enjoying Orient Express pass by Alpen Mountain. The game also includes a full track and train editor, allowing you to swap maps and trains online.
Microsoft didn't include any major crashes (just derailments) because the train manufacturers wouldn't allow it. They claimed that on-screen representations of crashes makes their real life trains look bad.
