Microsoft® Train Simulator Add-ons

As many of you already know, Microsoft has released Train Simulator and it seems to be a hit with railfans so far! Admittedly, it would not be on par with a high end simulator used to actually train railroad employees, but the "openness" of this simulator makes it easy for gamers and railfans alike to add their own trains and objects to the game. I am starting this section with the intention of offering the add-ons that I have created for Microsoft Train Simulator. Right now, I am mostly limited to skins (that's gamer's talk for paint on 3d game objects, in this case cars and locomotives), but I am hoping to offer new 3D objects in the future.

If you have not already done so, I would certainly suggest you check out the user forums and downloads available at The site is intended to serve as a central meeting place for the train-sim community, a "club house" of sorts where you can find all the latest information, chat with other enthusiasts, trade files, learn about trains and much more. If you are interested in getting more out of Microsoft Train Simulator, should be your first stop!

If you need more info on Train Simulator, such how to add new objects to the game and how to make your trains and consists, be sure to check out the Frequently Asked Questions section at

Also, check out the MSTS chat. You can get there by going to, picking a nickname and entering MSTS as the Channel to join!
Hope to see you there!
