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.

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.
