Microsoft Game Studios today announced that Microsoft Train Simulator 2 will be shown for the first time at E3, the annual video game convention in Los Angeles, May 14-16. Microsoft Train Simulator 2, the follow-up to the number one best-selling train simulation PC game, will be available in stores this fall.

With five new, highly detailed routes, Microsoft Train Simulator 2 provides the opportunity to command a 200-ton modern diesel locomotive or operate a steam-breathing behemoth from the past. Virtual engineers will be able to take trains around the historic Horseshoe Curve on the Pennsylvania Railroad circa 1946, or on a high-speed romp through Germany on the world-famous Deutsche Bahn AG. Taking cues from the exacting standards of quality and realism associated with the Microsoft Flight Simulator product family, this latest edition of the Microsoft Train Simulator series charges full steam ahead from where its predecessor left off. Microsoft Train Simulator 2 also adds dynamic weather in a living-breathing world complete with people, vehicles and animals roaming the countryside.
