About This Game



Train Sim World®: CSX Heavy Haul is an all-new First Person Simulator that brings to life the experience of operating powerful and heavy freight trains on one of America’s most stunning and famous railroads; Sand Patch Grade.



Powered by Dovetail Games’ new SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine and Unreal Engine 4® technology, Train Sim World uses real-world data to accurately replicate the performance, sounds and feel of real trains.

Featuring complete in-cab interactivity, take control of one of the three featured locos and feel the detail as you sit in the driver’s seat and bring some of the world’s biggest and most powerful trains roaring to life.



You’ve been invited to work for CSX Transportation as a railroad engineer delivering important cargo on tight schedules. With six challenging scenarios and many places to explore including Rockwood Mine, Sand Patch Summit and Cumberland Yard, your skill, focus and endurance will be tested to the limit.
