Chatham, Kent – 23rd May 2019 Another fantastic route has joined the Train Sim World collection with the addition of Train Sim World: Tees Valley Line: Darlington – Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

Situated in the historic birthplace of commercial railways, the Tees Valley Line is a window into the heartland of the British steel industry. Challenge yourself to keep to tight timetables and haul tons of coal and steel, all while learning the intricacies of a trio of classic British locomotives. Whether you’re green behind the ears or a master of the track, this route contains everything you need to keep the wheels of industry turning!

Powered by Unreal Engine 4® technology and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine, incorporating a simulation underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make the trains feel just like the real thing.

Train Sim World: Tees Valley Line is out now –here’s what you’re missing:

• Operate your trains over an aging rail network with out-of-date infrastructure on a route deep in transition between old and new. Reproduced in exquisite detail, every station, signal and milepost feel so real you could almost reach back in time and touch them.

• It’s your job to carry steel over the rails that follow the route of the historic Darlington & Stockton Railway, the world’s first commercial railway. Manage your powerful locomotives and heavy trains navigating the scenic countryside and industrial centres of North East England.

• Take control of three icons of British motive power, the BR Class 37 mixed traffic locomotive, the BR Class 08 diesel shunting locomotive and the BR Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit. Featuring authentic Diesel-Electric and Diesel-Mechanical simulations underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make them feel just like the real thing.
