Does Train Sim support Windows XP? Thanks to anyone that can help out!
I bought not long after it came out and have deleted it since but I run XP Home and it worked very well.
I know that it doesn't say on the box that it works on XP.
I'm sure you can pick it up very cheap now that they decided not to put out another edition of it. Try ebay or Amazon.
