I wonder how old the TSW players are...
I am currently a teen but until I stop playing video games I will play tsw the whole time
Hit the big 30 this year. Life moves too quick!
Sure does , it feels like yesterday that I was playing in the playground having just started school
Just wait and see how you feel in another 22 years.
There's definitely a big age gap of TS players, some of the older people are more interested in nostalgic trains where as some younger people are more interested in newer units, such as myself.
Well being over 40 I can say firstly. I will never stop playing video games, well not until I am dead anyways. Spent too many years playing them.
Onto trains now. I would say I am 50/50. I do like my older trains. Especially DMUs and EMUs. I also believe that we need new trains. I am a very big fan of the Pendolinos, and Nova 1s too.
I am a 90’s kid, so I’m 25 to be exact.
I'll be 46 this year
I'm wondering where the age gap between 35-45 comes from.
Younger folks are more likely to play video games and train simulators are in no doubt the most common way in modern times to get into railfanning. People above 60 aren't that adapted to computers in general so the lack of players in that range is to be expected.
But why is there a dip in the middle? Is this an entire generation where the interest in the railways dipped? I find this very fascinating.
Interesting question ...
I’ll hazard a guess that that’s the time of life when people are busiest and there is not much spare time or cash to devote to hobbies. The kids might be teenagers or near it, your dropping them here, there and everywhere. In work your working any available overtime to pay the mortgage and for said teenagers. Apologies to any teenagers in here but from experience I can tell you they ain’t cheap.
An old feeling 37
it’s quite simple really, this age group are too busy to play games of any sort while they deal with a their midlife crisis. They’ll be back soon enough
