Trainz Railroad Simulator 2006 is a 3D railroad simulator. The game comes with a series of ingame workshops to teach you all the basics of riding trains and everything around that. For players already familiar with trains or who have finished the workshops there are 21 interactive scenarios that can be played. Scenarios range from delivering cargo in time to transporting passengers in a tight time schedule. For the more creative players there is an atelier in which you can create your own maps and scenarios. The game comes with some 150 different locomotives, and over 7500 objects to place in your maps. Through an online portal many more objects can be downloaded for use ingame. You can control the game both in a simulation mode and a simplified mode. In the simulation mode you have full control of your train, but in the simplified mode some procedures have been simplified or automated.
