It is best to use High Quality (but not Highest Quality) settings (overall -- read on for details). If you use Highest Quality, the framerate will be significantly lower. Use Highest Quality shadows for best results on loading screen (and elsewhere as well). You have to install the winetricks versions of .NET Framework 4, Microsoft Visual C++ 2010, Flash Player 11 (required for adds only), and NVIDIA PhysX. Steam is required to download and play this game. You can download the Windows version of the SteamInstall.msi from steam.com. In order to run this game, download it through Steam. Once it is done downloading, DO NOT START THE GAME!!! First, quit Steam. Then, navigate to your Steam files generated within the Wine File Manager and change installscript.vdf to old_installscript.vdf in this directory: C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Railworks (alternatively, you may delete the file altogether). This action prevents the automatic installation of the required components previously installed through winetricks (of which wine does not support).

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).
