I know there have been train simulator games with the route before, but this is a bit - odd. Basically, you drive the train whilst a video of the route plays in front of you. Like an interactive version of those old increased speed videos of the route. If it is a couple of quid, I might have a look but they will likely see it as more than a gimmick and want £15-20.

Full timetable? So, the services you'll be able to operate as a 377 operator would be the 2225, 2254, 2325 and 0002 from Victoria to Brighton.

Gotta be more interesting than looking at this for 2 hrs which is what I’m doing right now 🥱
Edit - just past the Emirates and there’s a man with a yellow hat on standing on the roof which seemed marginally more interesting than the train game or looking at the seats opposite 🤷🏻‍♂️

Do you get to shuffle off to Greggs for an hour in your driver’s hat whilst an announcement in the background says something about ‘this service has been delayed due to lack of train crew’ ?

Well what a thrilling game. Are there leaves on the line, hurricane, wrong type of snow options? How about a Mick Lynch option which prevents you from playing and forces you to stand outside with a placard? Do you get bonus points for refusing to stop at East Croydon and Three Bridges?

If watching a train go on tracks is a video game, I reckon watching some one read a book would be in the same category.
Maybe I'm not into trains enough
