Yes! Railworks 2 Train Simulator is now available on Steam, and if you buy it before October 25th, it's half price.

The game lets you drive an accurate selection of trains "from the age of steam to the present day", across eight different routes. All of these are painstakingly recreated with "accurate signalling and signage," and there's also a career mode with 50 scenarios to play through that will have you comparing performance and competing with other drivers across the net. But the best part is the new editing tools.

Those editing tools let you create your own routes, laying down tracks, erecting stations and placing villages and forests. You can then save your creations and send them to others so that you can prove your indisputable dominance in the dog-eat-dog "creating virtual train sets" arena.

For more information, head over to the Rail Simulator site, or check out the Steam page, where the game is available to buy now for £15.

RailWorks Glasgow Airport Rail Link Add-on is now available on Steam.

The Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL) was a proposal to directly link Glasgow Central station with Glasgow International Airport in Scotland, United Kingdom. The link was intended for completion by 2013 and would have had a service of four trains per hour running along a semi-reconstructed via Cardonald, Hillington East and Hillington West, to Paisley Gilmour Street station. It would then have branched-off onto a new purpose-built 1.2 mile (1.9 km) line taking it over the M8 motorway into the airport.

Totalize Media have created numerous add-ons for rail simulation games. GARL is their most ambitious project to date featuring the whole route* covering 9km of existing track from Glasgow Central to Paisley St James and an additional 1.9km of new track between the proposed Airport Junction and Glasgow International Airport.
