About This Content

The Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (S&DJR) is a fondly remembered name in the minds of steam fans everywhere, and now you can drive along this wonderful railway line from the golden age of steam in Train Simulator.

The S&DJR was formed in 1862 during the great era of railway building in Britain, and was a challenge from the beginning as it required building the line over the Mendip Hills, resulting in some tricky gradients. The line carried local freight and passenger traffic, and was particularly busy in the summertime as it carried families from northern England down to the seaside resorts in the south. The line became part of the British Railways Southern Region in 1948, and remained busy throughout the 1950s and 1960s despite more and more cuts being made, culminating in the final closure of the line in 1966. The Somerset and Dorset line for Train Simulator runs from Bath Green Park to Templecombe and includes the classic 7F and Black 5 steam locomotives with rolling stock, as well as scenarios to put you to the test on this wonderful line.

This is the classic steam vintage route for TS. In the days of Railworks this was made with I-don't-know how many miles of track and a swag-full of rolling stock. The 7F and the Black-5's are easy to drive and are the perfect trains to introduce people to steam traction. The inclusion of 10 scenarios is a bonus, and, by the time you finish them, Dovetail might have made a good route.

Without some train DLC sold separately, you can only play 2 out of 10 of the scenarios promised, and the description does not warn you about that.

I love this route and the real route is my favourite railway line, this add on does the route justice. My only complaint is lack of stock, it comes with the 7F and Black 5 but really needs a 2P or Bullied Light Pacific to complement the line. At a penny shy of $9 its worth every penny.

This scenario i find well worth playing if you like steamers although i found it difficult to start with i just kept plugging away at it until i worked it out and i found certain keys on my laptop made it much easier to play such as if you press the number 4 left key on the number pad it made you look out athe left side of the drivers cab and if you then pressed the number 2 down key on number pad it let you look all the way down thr outside of your train on left side you can do this while moving or at a station and it is very useful at stations when your doors are open because it makes it easier to keep an eye on the doors shutting

This route is a must and has been greatly expanded by extentions in the Workshop. This is a must have route for those players of the 'good old steam days'. The locos that come with it, the Black 5 and the 7F have had sound improvements by a 3rd party developer. Now I use them even more than I did previously.

I've had this add-on since Railworks first came out, and it's most of the content is from RailSimulator. That being said, it's a very good pack and is an amazing route to use. It comes with the classic Kuju Black 5 and 7F models, both of which are fantastic. As with most Railworks DLC, I wouldn't recommend it at full price. However, something like the autmn sale for $5, you can't really complain. It adds lots of UK Steam assets to your game, and has a beautiful route which looks fantastic with Snow.

If you like Steam pick it up. So cheap, you might as well get it anyway.
