Virtual Railroader at Trolleyfest

Trolleyfest is Saturday, 9/17 11 AM to 5 PM.
From the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum:
Alfred Barten will give live demonstrations of virtual railroading at
the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum in Shelburne Falls for Trolleyfest. Virtual railroading is another name for train simulation using a personal computer. Users can operate trains, reroute them along different tracks, switch control from one train to another, and couple and uncouple cars. This is a form of model railroading without boundaries.
The demonstration will show how to operate trains and build routes using the Trainz software by Auran for Windows-based computers. The Trainz simulator is suitable for ages 7 and up.
Alfred Barten is a railroad historian and virtual railroading advocate, consultant and modeler. He publishes an online magazine entitled Virtual Railroader, available free at http://www.virtualrailroader.com . He helped found the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum and served on the museum's board of directors as its chairman.
