Steam engines are living breathing things. Nothing is more awesome that seeing a steam engine sitting and you can feel the life in it.

Power of trains, technology of all that is around trains (signals, traffic regulation, ...) to make it shorter the ability of create real trains stuff on computer.

Cheers,

To become an engine driver is a dream of most little boys (and some girls!). Because we are brought up with that feeling, we love...

Dang! Hit the word limit:hehe:

The sound (and smoke) diesels make when they throttle up.

Diesels - sounds and power,

Steam - sounds, smells and the fact that they're 'alive',

All Trains - track sounds, horn sounds, the shear power and technical 'beauty'.


Steve.

PS it's mainly the sounds :D
PPS I really gotta get out more often:hehe:

EVERYTHING!!!! :D

I especially like:

Railfanning (especially in trainz! :D)

Steam - Wheeshing noises, whistles, puffs and chugs...

Diesel - Horns, engine sound, etc....

Subway - Sound, design, tunnels, routes, Shuttles...

Tram - Engine sound, station design, tram design....

25 words can not express the deep-seated allure of the high iron, nor could 25,000.

Trains has something for everyone from building routes and creating content to driving the trains in their own world.

Yup! That's it. And, watching the valve gear in motion. It's just mesmerizing. :)

I like real trains because they don't go around in circles like the ones under the Christmas tree :p

Or... because they are big, steamy, and loud! :D

Cheerio,
John

diesels: the ground shaking, the horn, the 90,82,81,NR,EL,44,and T class.

Both Electric and Steam Locomotives are both visually and Aurally pleasing.

In "HO", or "N" scale a route would be enormous, with Trainz I can recreate the PRR from the 1930's Altoona Yard, to Johnstown:udrool: :mop:

The spewing plumes of smoke and the ear-splitting scream of a 218 as it clags out of Wiesbaden Hbf heading for the wrong side of the Rhein.

I enjoy the sound of a Diesel-electric locomotive…pulling a heavy train…at night…throttling down for a town...and the same sounds…can be heard…around the world!

Beautifully put however, while UK locos are a pure nostalgia trip for me..... Canadian diesels are also inspiring due to sheer size. Ever been on a bridge and almost cooked as a 6-pack of diesels hauling double container cars accelerates underneath you! Prior to being involuntarily cooked, feeling the bridge vibrate and hear that deep rumbling as "something big" is approaching around "that bend".

I am the only one I know who gets excited when held up by railroad crossing barriers!!!!!!! I then wind the windows down and listen (not too popular with passengers in February!).
