About This Content

The Great Western Main Line from Oxford to Paddington is a bustling thoroughfare, taking passengers and freight from the west of England into London, and you can drive your own high speed services and freight trains along this busy route in Train Simulator.

The line originally opened way back in the 1830s as part of Brunel’s fantastic Great Western Railway, which was designed to have as few challenging gradients as possible to benefit running speed. Today, the line is one of Britain’s busiest, carrying thousands of commuters every day and handling large amounts of freight. The Oxford-Paddington line in Train Simulator runs from London Paddington to Oxford Station via Reading and includes a variety of modern passenger and freight trains to drive, as well as some challenging scenarios to put your driving skills to the test.

Wow this is some good quality DLC and for a very good price (£5.99). Cant fault it and I wish all the DLC was like this. For the price of a sandwich and a drink you can get hours of entertainment from the route and its locos. Simliar DLC can set you back 30 quid.

The GWML is old and outdated but makes up for it with the scenery it has and the rolling stock that comes with it. The 166 and 43 admittedly could do with some work but they are good base models. The 47 is also good. Overall 9/10

The description does not warn you that you need specific train DLC to access most of these scenarios. I can only play 2 out of 8 promised in the description, having bought the basic Train Simulator 2015 package.

This route is a fantastic route.
It's incredibly detailed andvery worth the £9.99 if you canget it on the sale then great!
It's a fantastic route with beautiful locos,realistic sounds beautiful scenery one of the best routes Dovetail Games has actually ever made so all in all if you are starting your collection or expanding it then this route is a perfect buy!
I would certainly reccomend it especially for the £2.99 price on the slae at the moment!
Love it i would give it 5* out of 5
p.s this route is not that graphically demanding so it won't put your pc under too much strain which isareleif unlike some of the newer routes.:)
