Go to Amazon and search for "Trainz 2009".

Much can be done with Trainz, modelling-wise, but it can also be used as a simple Trains Sim as many ready-built tracks come with the program as standard. You can't go wrong with this.

A bit late I know, but if yu have a powerful enough PC, Railworks: Train Simulator 2012 is very good graphics-wise.

I own Railworks/TS2012 and it is the best Train Simulator out there the graphics are second to none, routes are excellent and it has just been updated, for free. So if you buy from here http://www.amazon.co.uk/-/dp/B0046LVG3Y?tag=invihand-21 it will be updated to the brand new TS2012 for FREE.

There are many sites for free content too however, 'payware' can be very attractive and can seem expensive if you do not wait for a 'sale' The game must be run from the Steam Client so a free account must be made and the game launched from there.

It is a very worthwhile investment and more like having a Train Set in your house with the exception that you have real world routes 140 miles long.
