Rick Selby writes on his blog: “I like trains.” He better, he’s helping to build another version of Microsoft’s Train Simulator.
I remember first seeing Microsoft’s Train Simulator back in the late 1990s at a train show.
Maryam, tonight, was telling my dad and my step mom how I took her to Tehachapi Loop on the way to Las Vegas on the trip I asked her to marry me. “He was chasing trains,” she said.
Oh, give me a camera, and a train to catch.
By the way, I blame this on Steve Sloan, my former boss at San Jose State. He’s a far deeper train freak than I am.
It’ll be a load of fun hanging out with photo and train geeks on Sunday. Can’t wait.
And can’t wait to get the new Train Simulator. I thought the coolest thing was being able to put my own photos and logos on trains. Here’s one I did for Scripting News.
One thing I hope Microsoft lets me do is to run Train Simulator in a Window. If you’re really a simulator freak, you want to load up a big train and then head across country. That’s pretty boring as game play goes, but it sure makes killer eye candy. Put that up on Vista’s sidebar and watch everyone rave when they pass by your cube!
