    A life long love of trains and railways, so anything that has trains in it I'm pretty much interested lol, plus life long love for gaming, first train sim was the Evening Star on the ZX SPECTRUM+2 when i as about 10, any train game or sim since then I've played if I've been able too.

    Would play a lot on Simviation and Trainz an Australian simulation on the pc. Then when this version came out it once again became an obsession,could be a lot better but with the platform xbox 1, we have to accept what we have.

    Trainz games on the PC years ago. My interest died down but then was reignited with TSW on a console as I didn't have a PC anymore

    I'm forever watching Squirrel playing sims on YouTube, and was pleasantly surprised to find TSW on XBox. I hadn't played a train sim since Trainz 2012 and despite there being no route editor, I've had a blast.

    Boredom and frustration during furlough with shooting games online . Not really interested in trains . Just thought I would give it ago while it's on game pass on xbox one X I love the game now bugs an all, also because it has NTP I live in Yorkshire so know the area and era especially the 101. I find it relaxing to play .I have pc now too to play ts2020 now. Good times.roll on 20th August.

    Yeah, he got me into ETS and ATS. Recently I've also gotten into Derail Valley too.

    I liked trains from the very start but the Moleman978 got me into train simulation. He got me interested in 2015.

    Always wanted to drive a DMU, a Metro Cammel/Craven, nice and steady along a branch line, so this gives me what I want

    I really like trains and I saw this was 50% off in the Xbox store so I thought I'd give it a go.

    I've always liked trains and simulation games. However, since I've always played on console I never really got into any of them. When TSW came along I watched a few YouTube videos and I found myself completely engrossed in them! I like all types of games but often prefer more relaxing experiences. So when I saw that TSW was not only a realistic simulator but also a good looking, relatively polished one (it's rare among simulators, especially on console) I was immediately interested. I purchased the Founders Edition and have been playing it ever since.

    My first time playing with a train simulator was Train Simulator 2001on PC. I've been playing Train Sim World on Xbox one since day one back in 2018. I love trains of all types with a passion. My Grandfather, my father and myself have all been Tube train drivers on the London Underground. Some guys love sports but I prefer trains and now so does my fiancée
