5.0 out of 5 stars Attention to detail pays off 3 Oct 2002
By Jay M VINE VOICE
Without a doubt, this is the best add-on for Microsoft Train Simulator available on the market. It's got everything you could want, a selection of powerful and interesting engines, beautiful rolling stock and one of the most scenic and in-depth train routes ever to grace a PC screen. Plus there are over 30 activities to keep you amused, well over what most other add-ons provide.
What makes this the best add-on for me though is just simply the superb and glorious graphics, they are the best I've ever seen for a MSTS add-on. Big congratulations must got to Bluesky Productions for producing such a gem. The attention to detail is phenomenal, sometimes it's almost like you are really there and driving the train. Leipzig station is a wonderful departing point for your journey and on all the subsequent stations the detail in design always stays. You can even see the timetables and ticket machines! Another neat touch is the train having an announcer telling you the train is about to leave the station.
The route itself is one of the longest, if not the longest, in any add-on. It's from Leipzig to Dresden and it's a lovely route where you will reach speeds of upto 160km/h. Watch out for many interesting surprises in the scenery along the way! Though a German made add-on, the manual is in perfect English and the messages and information on-screen are in English too, so there's nothing for us English only speakers to worry about!
Get this now and it will show you what Train Simulator can really do. The best package!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pro Train 2 review 14 Mar 2005
Having recently bought this add-on, I can say that it is probably the best one there is! It out-strips its' predecessor, Pro Train 1 (Rheintal), by a large amount, and in some cases is better than MSTS itself! The graphics are amazing and should also run on slower computers. All the main routes are nicely detailed and unimportant tracks have a sensibly positioned buffer stop which is not immediately obvious, but isn't miles (or maybe kilometers!) away from the actual divergence.
What I like best is the fact that unlike the original MSTS trains, even on electric's, you can stick your head out of the left-hand cab window and look forwards and backwards, something which was only prevoiusly possible on steam loco's. Ironically, you drive from the right-hand side of the cab but look out of the left! Never mind, it's a small point which doesn't detract from the main route.
One factor which does though, is that it is hard to find the right tracks out of Leipzig station and simialrly all the signals leaving Dresden are at red, and the only plausible way leads you through two red signals, the second of which aplies very gentle braking, but this can be overcome by pressing reset ('Z' key).
The real selling factor is the sound effects to the electric locomotives. Having lived in Germany, I was used to the 101's and the 112/143's very well, and the sounds really make these trains amoung the best yet released, especially the starting noises on the 112/143 when you set off, followed by the continous drone of the fans. The 101 is equally good, with its' never-ending whine when under power. On the 'Ludmilla' (the various 232's), the engine noise is loud but not excessive and certainly drown out all other sounds around, especially the 'permission granted/dinied' phrases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 28 April 2003
By RM
ProTrain 2 is a fantastic add-on for MSTS. The attention to detail is phenomenal and it is obvious that Blue Sky really did take their time to produce one of the best add-ons ever for MSTS. Although it is not the longest add-on in terms of track distance,there are more than enough trains and activities to keep you occupied for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars MANY HOURS OF FUN WITH PRO TRAIN 2! 26 May 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Really if you want a German add-on for MSTS then look no further. The Pro Train 2 really has everything you could ask for, the graphics are excellent, there is a wide range of very detailed rolling stock, including electric and diesel locos. The route included is also fantastic, you can start at Leipzig and head out towards Dresden, Gashwitz via Plagwitz or Stotteritz, or Miltitzer Allee. Stations are excellently detailed and include those such as Leipzig, Reisa, Dresden, Plagwitz and Gashwitz. Those are only a small amount of the many stations you will find along the Pro Train 2 route. The rolling stock is also excellent, ranging from commuter services to intercity services. These include:
DB 101
DB 112
DB 143
DB 132
DB 232 Red
DB 232 Purple
DB 232 Green
IC Steuerwagen
RE 160 Steuerwagen
The cabs are excellently detailed with fully functional buttons and levers. Passenger and freight trains are included, all passenger trains have detailed passenger views. Activities are also great, all 30 of them. They cover every route, from Leipzig to Dresden, Gashwitz via Plagwitz and Stotteritz, Miltitzer Allee, Plagwitz to Gashwitz and Gashwitz to Dresden. I tell you that you will not be bored. You can buy this add-on now and I'm sure you will, like me, have many hours of fun driving on this route.

I rate this add-on 99.8% out of 100%
