Train Director - Simulations List
|Minsk Passazhirsky||9/5/15||2.6M||Dima Larin||
Minsk-Passazhirsky is the main railway station of Belarus. It serves arriving and departure trains in 4 directions: Brest, Gomel, Molodechno, Orsha. The station has 5 platforms and 14 tracks.
The content of the zip file needs to be extracted in a separate directory before playing can start.
This is the result of 3 years of work, and found several bugs Train Director.
Note that this scenario uses Cyrillic characters. It will not appear correctly on systems that don't have Cyrillic fonts available.

As it is pretty much difficult to play, there is some documentation attached
in the zip file to understand how the line works.

A 2x or 5x simulation speed is recommended. The file README-COSTA.TXT (English) or LEEME-COSTA.txt (Spanish) describes the simulation in detail.|
|Sant Vicenc-L'Hospitalet/El Prat||4/4/10||170k||Jordi Collado||Scenario temporarily unavailable upon the author's request who is going to make several corrections.
This Spanish scenario is the simulation of the Vilafranca and Vilanova lines, part of the railroad network that spreads from Barcelona. The simulation is extremely difficult, due to the number of trains (750) and the variety of destinations. Lots of fun, although it might give you a headache...
|9/5/09||108k||Antonio Roa López||The second Spanish scenario is of the lines Chinchilla-Cartagena and Murcia-Aguilas, in the south-east of Spain.

Chicago's Rapid Transit comprises several lines, identified by different colors, that share the elevated tracks in the downtown area of the city in what is known as the "Chicago Loop". In this area, and especially where the lines branch to the suburbs (at Tower 12 and Tower 18), the traffic is quite heavy, especially during rush hour.
If you are interested, CTA has a YouTube channel where they put the train driver's view of all the lines (for example, here's the Brown Line).
|New York Subway
|11/12/16||354k||bipbip||This scenario shows the movement of NYC subway's trains on the Broadway Line and its branches.
Lines 1 and 3 are entirely shown, line 2 is shown between 135 St. and Flatbush Ave. stations,
lines 4 and 5 are shown only in Brooklyn borough. The simulation begins at 3 a.m. and finishes at
3 a.m. in the following night. The layout uses Monday to Friday schedules (June 2016).
This is an ambitious scenario that uses up the maximum horizontal extension allowed by the simulator. Therefore it's advisable to use of an ultra-wide screen, or the use of an external web browser to show the layout on 2 independent screens.
|Philadelphia||4/1/14||1.7M||Guido Motta||Line section between Philadelphia and Perryville, on the Northeast Corridor's line
Boston - New York - Washington, D.C. The simulated section includes Philadelphia's
suburbs with regional Septa traffic and long distance Amtrak traffic.

services and the Norac signaling system, which is also simulated.
