Insgesamt gesehen, ist mit SOUTHERN BELLE ein Programm geschaffen worden, das nicht nur den „Eisenbahn- Freaks“ unter den Computer-Besitzern Freude bereiten wird. Allein das Zuschauen eines „verkappten Lokomotiv-Führers“ wird in einem solchen einen vielleicht langerwünschten Kindheitstraum erfüllen.

There is no doubt that the author cares a great deal about the subject matter and, at the cost of lavish aesthetics, has developed a program that comes as close to demonstrating the real thing as any game will ever come on the 64. Unfortunately for me, that wasn't enough. I soon found the simulation tedious. There isn't the same sense of freedom you get in a flight simulator. What you do get was too limiting for my tastes. I suspect that this will only appeal to the aficionados of the era and subject. Having said that, you have to admire the attention to detail, right down to the differing intensities of puffs of steam and what they mean. For £8, Hewson can hardly be accused of asking too much.

Une simulation dont l'originalité compense la lenteur de l'animation.

King of the simulations, as well as being a unique game.
