    My 60th birthday was May 20, and I finally got my birthday presents today (!). Best present: Trainz "Railroad Simulator"! I'm installing it (on my laptop, since I'm mostly interested in using it when I'm away from my real trains when I'm on the road on business) even as I write this (on my PC). Any advice from current users?

    I also finally got a Christmas present my spouse ordered for me back in December: the Proto 2000 Limited Edition H10-44 locomotive, in the Santa Fe "safety stripe" paint scheme. Sweet!

    HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!!!balloon6

    PLEASE let me know how Trainz is, i have been contemplating on getting it for some time now. i have Microsoft's Train Simulator, but its a real pain to add engines and freight to it:roller: , plus, there isn't much UP stuff made for it:frowns: .

    you ALSO got an FM H10-44...OUTSTANDING!!!:mrgreen: , i know you'll enjoy it:thumb: .
