Since the game's release, Steam has been used to deliver exclusive routes, locomotives, updated ex. Rail Simulator content and fixes. Examples include the fictional Rascal & Cottonwood route from All Aboard and packs of the LMS Jubilees and the GWR 4900 Class locomotives.
Metacritic reports an average score of 70 out of 100 or "Mixed or Average Reviews". IGN gave the game an "7.0" or "decent" citing that the game doesn't "bring a lot of new stuff to the genre" and graphically lacks the "flair" of a normally developed game.
