Rail Simulation feels the shock of the new with Newcastle to York - Modern

Travel the modern East Coast Main Line from Newcastle to York in a high quality 80-mile route expansion for RailWorks or Rail Simulator.

The default Newcastle to York route in the European version of RailWorks and Rail Simulator is based around the route as it existed in the 1970s. This all-new route brings it bang up to date with a completely re-worked track layout, overhead power masts and cables, revised speed limits, updated signalling, and appropriate modernisation of the scenery along the route. Each station incorporates modern platform allocations, and is bought to life with a wealth of atmospheric detail. With eight immersive scenarios and four new liveries for the HST, this fantastic package is a must-have for virtual rail enthusiasts.

The download version is now on sale at £19.66 and the suggested retail price for the boxed version (release date 27th November) is £24.45. However, anyone pre-ordering the boxed version from before the release date will get 500 Just Rewards points which are worth up to £5 off any purchase at Just Flight or Just Trains websites.

Just Trains’ Simon Martin commented: “fans of the original route for Rail Simulator have been keen to experience the journey on today’s electrified system and now their wishes are answered. Darren Porter has painstakingly re-created the route as it is today and the results are a work of art and incredible value for money!”
