Ages of the Train
Ages of the Train is a phrase we've been punting around for a few weeks now and we're pleased to formally announce that it is the name of our new range of stock packs for RailWorks Train Simulator.
Building on the ethos of the scenarios included with our stock packs each scenario pack will contain five prototypical scenarios for one route with a common theme from a logical period of railway history. Actual periods that have been defined at this time are: 1968 - 1972, 1973 - 1986 and 1987 - 1994.
Each scenario features actual train formations and motive power (where known) for the individual services and prototypical routing where possible.
Rolling stock and routes will be drawn from our own and a range of other commercial products including Iron Horse House - our preferred motive power provider.
