Simulator and route editor run. Packager and package manager (Utilities.exe) run and allow route installation.
What does not
TSX needs to be off in the graphics options otherwise just get a blank screen, although the menus still display.
Just discovered Wine1.5.19 allows TSX graphics but that slows things down considerably and the keyboard controls do not work (although the game can be played by the mouse).
NET 4.0 needed for Utilities.exe to run. This contains the route & asset packager and package manager (needed to install .rpk format assets and routes).
What was not tested
Blueprint editor and localisations not tested, package manager only briefly tested.
Need to install Winetricks versions of Steam.app, d3dx9_43, d3dCompiler_43, .NET 4.0 (only required to run Utilities.exe but not tested without), physx, vcrun2010. I needed to use Wine1.4.0 to install .NET 4, but game runs with 1.5.0 and newer (earlier versions not tried). Run Steam.exe. When Steam has installed TS 2013 do not run it! Show package contents on the wrapper navigate to drive_c:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\commom\railworks and rename installscript.vdf to old_installscript.vdf. This stops Steam from installing Windows versions of the above dlls, some of which do not work in Wine. Flash player is used to display ads whilst loading in the game, but is not required. I could not get TS2013 to run when I installed Flash using Winetricks,

TSX graphics do not work unless you have a powerful computer and Anti-Aliasing set to FXAA 1+2xSSAA or higher. Do not attempt to use it if you run it with anything else.
The game will run fine with it off. It will not compromise the quality of gameplay (besides the obvious).
