OK, I guess I’m just a bit slow, but I’ve suddenly discovered an area of computing that I’d never come across and which had never occurred to me before… Did you know that, as well as a Flight Simulator, Microsoft also sell a Train Simulator? And that Hornby not only sell model railways, but virtual ones as well? Wow, there’s a whole page full of similar software here!

Any serious anorak-wearers will be wondering, no doubt, which planet I’ve been on for the last few years, but somehow I had managed to miss these. They seem a bit sad and yet rather fun at the same time. Good Christmas presents, I guess, for the right person, and think of all that attic space you could save….
