for you folks still sitting on the fence on whether
to try Run8 or not, we have something to share
with you. We showed Run 8 to folks out at Barstow,CA
at the Barstow Rail Festival a couple of years
ago and we had a Trainmaster from a Class 1 railroad
come in and check out Run 8, John Greenstone spent
45 minutes with the guy, and he was very impressed
with what we had done so far and before leaving
he told John that Run 8 was much better than the
program(s) that they were using to train their
own engineers! Now how cool is that!
with well over 1,000,000 Run 8 multi-player sessions
operated since August 2012 Run8 with it's superior
physics and operational capabilities continues
to be the #1 Train Simulator of choice
by real railroaders and hard core train sim enthusiasts
