• Fastline Simulation Releases Ages Of The Train 01

    Ages of the Train 01: ECML Freight 1973 - 1986 scenario expansion for Train Simulator 2013 is now available.

    Fastline Simulation have released their much anticipated Ages of the Train 01: ECML Freight 1973 - 1986 scenario expansion pack for Railworks Train Simulator 2013.

    The first release in the Ages of the Train range of scenario expansion packs for RailWorks Train Simulator features a selection of Goods Trains for the Newcastle to York route from what many consider the classic diesel and electric era of British Rail.

    Building on the ethos of the scenarios included with their stock packs each scenario pack contains five prototypical scenarios for the route with a common theme from a logical period of railway history.

    The scenarios are further enhanced by the alteration of line speeds to reflect the date of each scenario, additional lighting in yards and other locations where required and the use of period TSR equipment.

    Drawing on a range of Fastline Simulation and other commercial product, each scenario features actual train formations and motive power (where known) for the individual services and prototypical routing where possible.

    The included scenarios are:

    • 4C64 2135 Newcastle FLT - Stratford FLT. (1977)
    • 6E32 2200 Clitheroe - Newcastle. (1980)
    • 6L45 0645 Derwenthaugh - Wakefield. (1981)
    • 6S69 1237 Ecclesfield - Grangemouth. (1982)
    • 7L06 1356 Tyne Yard - York Up Arrival. (1985)

    Priced at £5 and offering over 12 hours of simultion over the 5 scenarios this Railworks Train Simulator 2013 add-on can only be purchased here.

      How about a little truth in advertising? The scenario pack seems reasonably priced, but buying all of the required payware add-ons would raise the cost considerably. Besides that, each scenario offers only a very long run from A to Boring.

      Have you played any of them? If you are interested in simulating that era of BR then these scenarios are as good as it gets.
