Editors' Review

Steam meets snow in an atmospheric screensaver especially appealing to lovers of trains and clocks. Watch from multiple angles as a throwback steam train chugs by pines on a snow-blanketed mountain pass. The vista overlooking a desolate valley is a treat, though there only appears to be one. A few more miles of varied scenery would improve the screensaver's visual interest. The locomotive is accompanied by either an analog or digital clock that you choose in the screensaver settings menu.

"Poorly rendered, annoying nag screen"

December 21, 2008  |  By kevmalone

 |  Version: Winter Train 3D Screensaver 1.0

Pros

Well done on the moving train parts

Cons

Rendering is blocky, no long distance views (all close-ups) Nag screen appears after a couple of minutes and obscures the center 30% of the display.

"Average, and Pricey!"

December 19, 2008  |  By anne2708

 |  Version: Winter Train 3D Screensaver 1.0

Pros

Nice, I enjoyed watching.

Cons

Very hard to shut down...doesn't seem to be completely compatible my puter.
Too expensive. I would expect much more graphic for the money!

Summary

If you are a Train fanatic...you can't live without it.
If you like trains...it is too expensive and doesn't work great.
If you are looking only for an interesting screen saver....forgettaboutit!

"Very realistic, colourful, beautiful scenery."

December 16, 2008  |  By ursulamargrit

 |  Version: Winter Train 3D Screensaver 1.0

Pros

Realistic train workings, great, vivid colours. The background (photography?) is of a beautiful mountain landscape, very lovely. I love just watching it when I don't use the computer.

Cons

The windows aren't see-through, which makes it not as realistic. Everything repeats a little too soon, but is still great. Since it is supposedly a coal fired engine, there should be coal or wood in the 'tender' car behind the engine.

Summary

All in all, I am extremely happy with this screen saver. It is fun to watch, very cute and quite realistic. The colours of the train itself are vivid, without being tacky. The wheels appear to really be turning, and the pistons are very realistic, as is the smoke coming from the chimney.

It would be nice if there was sound to it, too, that you could choose to turn on or off (or down).

I do recommend this screensaver to anyone who likes something wintery and whimsical, and enjoys watching trains.
