    TrainSim World 3 - Holiday Express Out Now

    Train Sim World 3: The Holiday Express – Runaway Elf Add-on is out
    now! Gather the family round the screen, fire up the miniature F7 and
    get ready to undo the mischief caused by the naughty elf. It’s time to
    save Christmas! Richie Rails to the rescue!

    There’s less than two weeks to go until Christmas Day! Treat yo’elf
    this festive season and enjoy a Train Sim World experience on a
    completely different scale. The nostalgia-filled 1980s living room
    setting sees a miniature railway threaded between furniture and a
    naughty elf on the loose, leaving presents and batteries where they
    shouldn’t be! The glow of the fire and the flicker of the CRT
    television create an atmosphere befitting of a quiet Christmas Eve but
    things must be put in order before the clock ticks down to

    Running round the track is the Richie Rails F7, fitted with
    simplified controls that engineers and drivers of all ages can have
    fun with. Whether you’re getting to know your surroundings by
    exploring every inch of the layout, or carefully plotting a course to
    switch the right stock out of the right yards, this version of the F7
    is perfect for the task at hand. There’s plenty to see around the room
    and for those wanting a bit more freedom of movement, a driveable jeep
    can be unlocked – a first for Train Sim World!

    With a selection of scenarios to play, collecting up items and
    putting the elf back on that naughty step, there’s work to be done
    before you can all relax for Christmas! But once all is cleared, using
    Scenario Planner, the train set is yours to enjoy with any of the
    trains and locomotives from Train Sim World 3 and previously-owned
    Train Sim World Compatible content.

    Beyond the living room, a host of festive Community activities are
    taking place in-game and on social media. This year we have decided to
    create something new and fun to celebrate The Holiday Express - a way
    to earn in-game rewards, DLC keys and even a mystery grand prize! You
    can get involved on our socials each day with daily competitions and
    puzzles. There’s also some festive Mastery Challenges in-game to get
    stuck into and a combined Community Challenge for everyone to
    contribute towards whilst playing their favourite routes, with some
    festive surprises appearing in Training Center for those who complete

    Some of you have already been sketching Elves and folding up paper
    train models, and we're excited to see you tackle the remaining
