Our goal is to enhance the railroad simulation hobby through a community designed and supported platform built to serve as a lasting foundation for an accurate and immersive simulation experience.

By making the source code of the platform accessible to community members, we ensure that Open Rails will continually evolve to meet the technical, operational, graphical, and content building needs of the community. Open architecture ensures that our often considerable investment in building accurate representations of routes and rolling stock will not become obsolete due to 'economic realities'.

Access to the source code eliminates the frustration of undocumented behavior and simplifies understanding the internal operation of the simulator without the time consuming trial and error experimentation typically needed today.

We benefit from community expertise to deliver accuracy not just in appearance, but also operationally. It's this area that we find existing products lacking. We understand that 'operations' differ greatly, not just among regions, but even from railroad to railroad.

Couldn't figure out where to post this, but considering I'm new (or want to be new) I thought here would be most appropriate. Does anyone know how to use Open Rails on Windows 10?

I'll try it again at some stage, but it keeps saying I need Microsoft XNA 3.1, which I can't download.

DO a google search for "xnafx31_redist", Downloads xnafx31_redist.msi from microsoft no problems.

It is/was also availible as XNAGS31_setup.exe.
