Discussions on the new Microsoft Trainsimulator X. Following the successful release of Microsoft Flight Simulator X, the Aces Studio is using the same technology to develop a new version of Microsoft Train Simulator.

Our goal is to enhance the railroad simulation hobby through a community designed and supported platform built to serve as a lasting foundation for an accurate and immersive simulation experience. By making the source code of the platform accessible to community members, we ensure that Open Rails will continually evolve to meet the technical, operational, graphical, and content building needs of the community. Open architecture ensures that our often considerable investment in building accurate representations of routes and rolling stock will not become obsolete due to 'economic realities'.
BVE Trainsim (originally Boso View Express) is a Japanese three-dimensional computer-based train simulator. It is notable for focusing on providing an accurate driving experience as viewed from inside the cab, rather than creating a network of other trains —other trains passed along the route are only displayed as stationary objects. BVE Trainsim was developed by Takashi "Mackoy" Kojima starting in 1996, with the original program name coming from the Japanese 255 series multiple unit trains found in routes in Japan. Although the internal working of the BVE Trainsim program itself cannot be modified, additional routes and train cab views can be added via a number of text-based configuration files. Route builders have produced over 300 additional routes for the program, along with matching cab environments. Routes built by independent developers simulate rail activity in Asia, North America, South America, and Europe.
