Genre Train driving Simulation

Release 26th November 2004

SRP £24.99

Amid ugly scenes on platform 6B at Effingham Junction in Surrey this morning, that was the response from angry commuters desperate to board MicrosoftTM train simulator add-on, London & South East overdue from First Class Simulations and now not scheduled to arrive until November 26th. There was much effingham and blindingham amongst the assembled throng before First Class Simulations managing director and part-time platform supervisor, Robert Stallibrass, scaled a recklessly abandoned luggage trolley and sought to pacify the angry mob.

"Get back! Get back!" he taunted the crowd, brandishing a cheap biro and a dog-eared timetable. "You'll get your money's worth! I've told you before, London & South East is so jam-packed with original late 1960's era London railway stations, rolling stock and railway paraphernalia that the developers needed another three weeks to get everything in it!" Relieved of his duties immediately by the station manager, the crowd started to disperse before Stallibrass had another go. Shaking his fist in defiance, he declared, "London & South East is going to be the biggest MicrosoftTM train simulator add-on product day-one ship out ever. EVER!"
