About This Content

The Cajon Pass is a world-famous railroad line running through the dramatic Mojave Desert in California, and now you can drive your own trains through this amazing sun-baked landscape in Train Simulator.

This challenging route first opened way back in the 1880s, and ever since it has gained a reputation for tough conditions and stunning scenery.

Now that Steam is allowing reviews of DLC, I'll start by reviewing this one. This is a great addition to the game. This route takes place in the deserts of California near the Mojave. It's a wide open and mostly flat route with long runs of high speed freight trains from UP, Santa Fe and BNSF liveries. There are some gentle rolling hills and the desert scenery is quite beautiful. The scenarios are all well done and completeable. There are over a dozen scenarios included. The best scenario in the pack is called "The Splitter" where you have to manually load some double stack intermodals with an overhead crane and then haul them to a staging point, drop them off, pick up another cut and proceed to a 2nd destination so there is alot to do and interactivity other than just driving the train.

It's a long route too, well over 100 miles end to end so it will keep you busy for quite awhile completing and driving the whole thing.

Performance is good, getting a solid 60fps pretty much everywhere on highest settings (PC specs below). Definitely recommend.

Cajon Pass is one of the default routes in Railworks 3 TS2012. I got it because I got TS2012 for Christmas 2013(when TS2013 was the game) and got all all TS2012 content but the TS2013 technology. The route is good looking but it needs updating to it's curret day form like add extra tracks at the actual Cajon Pass like I've seen in google maps. The route runs about 80 miles from a masseive BNSF yard at Barstow to the BNSF intermodal yard at San Bernardino. Although BNSF mostly operates the track in real life, UP has rights and nly UP locos and stock are in the route, no BNSF! As you near the Cajon Pass(the actual mountain pass) a small part of the UP Palmdale Cut-off runs along side the Cajon Sub almost to San Bernardino. Overall it is an ok route but could use updating. I do recommed it!

I live near the Pass and while I recognise that the route is set in the time just before the 3rd main was built, I still find most of the route unrecognisable. I-15 which is an 8-lane monster of a busy freeeway is depicted as just a minor road with a couple of lanes and occasional traffic. Other landmarks which should be obvious are either not present or not obvious. I have scenery set to maximum thanks to a whizzy graphics card. Very disappointed.
