“We are very happy to be starting off the New Year with Sandpatch,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First Inc. “Any Microsoft® Train Simulator fan is going to want this in their collection.”
Sandpatch brings players to one of America's most famous rail crossings, Sandpatch, which offers exciting challenges for all. Based on the Baltimore & Ohio's historic line, Sandpatch covers a distance of over 50 miles of mainline track between Cumberland, Maryland, and Rockwood, Pennsylvania. Included along the mainline are numerous spurs, interchanges, and branch lines, which make for exciting switching and way freight operations. As the engineer of a number of different freight trains, it is the gamer’s job to pull massive loads of coal, autos, piggybacks, and general merchandise over the picturesque Allegheny Mountain region.
Sandpatch is the first game of its kind to explore the historic Allegheny Mountains with impeccably detailed accuracy and offers players loads of new locos and rolling stock to try out as they make their way through the different activities and operations.
Sandpatch will be exclusively distributed in North America by Infogrames.
