Hi pcmatty,

I believe the best place to post this error would be below:

Steam Community :: Train Simulator 2014

However, you should run the diagnostics on the system to ensure there is no error on the harddrive of the system. Check this video which would be helpful:

Diagnostics

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hmmm
I ran a check using that dell checker thing. No errors found on my laptop. So it must be a steam issue.

Hi pcmatty,

Thanks for your reply. Its great to hear that there are no hardware issues with the system. It seems like an issue with the steam software you can try re-installing the same and any dependent softwares for it.

You could also raise a post under their community and see what they have to suggest. However, you could perform a clean boot to ensure no background processes causing it not to update:

Keep us posted with the results.
