Award-winning train simulator adds Amtrak to roster of valued North American partners.
Chatham, UK-September 22, 2011 Railsimulator.com Ltd., the market leading train simulation innovator, have signed an agreement with Amtrak which allows them to produce officially-licensed Amtrak content in their simulators, notably their new title RailWorks3: Train Simulator 2012. The company already has agreements with BNSF, Union Pacific, Canadian National, Norfolk Southern and many more key companies.
"The partnership with Amtrak adds passenger service to our already robust coverage of North American railroads," said Paul Jackson CEO of Railsimulator.com. "As Amtrak celebrates its 40th anniversary, record numbers of people are rediscovering train travel, and our simulator makes it simple to get started in the hobby."
Railsimulator.com released the Northeast Corridor route in late August as an add-on to RailWorks 2, allowing passengers to take the controls of an Amtrak train themselves. Further Amtrak releases include the P42DC Genesis locomotive and the high-speed Acela Express service, so everyone will be able to build and operate their own virtual Amtrak fleet.
Train Simulator 2012 will be available from Steam (Train Simulator 2012 Online Purchase Page) and leading gaming retailers from September 23, 2011.
