Chatham, Kent – 12th December 2019 Train Sim World returns to the British modern era with the new Brighton – Eastbourne route featuring the picturesque countryside of Southern England and introducing the iconic BR Class 377/4.

Drive trains across the East Coastway as it is today, complete with authentic modern signaling on this state-of-the art railway that defines commuter and seaside rail operations. Take passengers to England’s southern coast and into the country’s oldest rail-served seaside town, Brighton. Manage the complexities of running a modern-day railway, complete with a separate branch to Seaford that demand trains are kept to timetable. Whether you’re driving, riding along or watching the action, experience all the sights and sounds of this seaside spectacular.

Take control of an icon of British commuter motive power, the BR Class 377, as well as the BR Class 66 which heads freight operations on the route. Featuring authentic 750V DC Electric and Diesel-Electric 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.

A free update alongside this release also introduces head sway to your locomotives for the first time.
