About This Content

The hustle and bustle of the UK’s capital city and the sprawling countryside of Essex and East Anglia come together in one fantastic modern route for Train Simulator.

The 19th Century London Liverpool Street is the City terminus point of the Great Eastern Main Line before the line winds through the suburbs of London and past the Olympic Park, into Essex and on to Suffolk.

The earliest section of the line (often shortened to ‘GEML’) opened in 1839 and ran from Devonshire Station (in Mile End, London) to Romford, Essex. A year later, the London terminus was moved to Bishopsgate and over subsequent years the line was extended further into Essex, reaching Ipswich in 1846. London Liverpool Street became the City terminus of the route in 1872, and now sees more than 57 million passengers each year.

The 70 mile route from London to Ipswich sees daily fast passenger services to and from East Anglia with slower commuter services serving the ‘banker belt’. It is electrified at 25 kV AC using overhead wires and has a line speed of up to 100mph (161km/h). The line also carries frequent freight operations working from Felixstowe and Ipswich to Stratford, where connections are made with the North London Line and main lines radiating from London to other parts of the UK.

A common sight on the line is the Siemens-built Class 360 EMU, operated by Greater Anglia and included with the route. These ‘Desiro’ units were introduced to service in 2003 and by mid-2004 had completely replaced the ageing Class 312 slam-door units. The four-car units have a top speed of 100mph and quick acceleration, making them ideal for long commuter lines with frequent station stops.

Notable landmarks along the route include London Liverpool Street, Stratford, the Olympic Park, Ilford Carriage Sidings, Chelmsford, Colchester, Manningtree, Stoke Tunnel (the only railway tunnel on the Great Eastern Main Line) and Felixstowe Container Terminal and Docks, as well as the Braintree branch from Witham and the short branch line to Colchester Town.

Nice route out of London. My only two complaints are the Mayflower Line not being included (the route to Harwich), and the fact than whenever I use the Free roam camera, the game crashes if there is a Class 360 on the route. Overall, I give the route a 7/10.

It will not let me play because when I load it.It works on the loading screen but when the screen goes black it stays like that for ages then it says saved to temp dump then i close that and it says that Railworks needs to close because it has encountered a problem then train sim closes but when i try other routes they work fine.

One of the best DLC routes in my opinion. Very nicely detailed, and many of the scenarios have good AI traffic on them. The route itself is an interesting one with a number of branch lines (Braintree and Felixstowe in particular are of interest), though you'll have to find workshop scenarios to get the most out of these.

I'm no loco expert but both the 90 and 360 seem well detailed and are nice to drive.

This is a good route for both passengers and Freightliner trains. The line to Felixstowe is also included, so you may run Diesel trains along that line with a little help from a workshop scenario. (I made one for it!)

I bought this route today, and it is great. Scenery is fantastic, as well as the weather effects, Only problem I have is the headlights in the Class 360 EMU locomotive don't light up anything in front of the train, which makes it difficult to run at night.

Would it possible to upgrade the London-Ipswich route to include the Docklands lihgt railway train runing in & out of stratford. Also would it be possible to exstend the line up to Norwich & if possible to include sum of the branch lines into Norwich great scenario ran many times. Thank you. Snapper50

In depth review.

Looks good when you first purchase the line, but as you start to play with QD and do the Scenario's the tell tale DTG signs of un-finished work pop up...

Some of the station's dont even appear, so you need to go into the editor to sort that problem.

The Harwich Harbour section is not available in QD, as they've not even bothered to finish doing it!!

There are no marker boards outside Chelmsford station telling you there is a new speed limit, heading towards London.

Scenario's: All work apart from : It's Snow Fun as the timing is totally out so have no chance of staying on schedule.

The train is good, the sound effects are nothing special. Though that I'm personally not to worried about.

IS IT VALUE FOR MONEY?

At list price of £24. Most certainly not, to many mistakes with the core level, as above.
What about on discount? If your prepared to put up with the fault's/error's yes.
What about in a bundle. Yes, this is how I purchased this line along with another for just over £13. As the bundle had something like 65% discount in the winter sale.

Do I use it?

Yes, use it a lot for QD from driving trains up and down the uk. Felixstowe harbour is good asset to have. Not used at all by DTG in the scenario's which is a shame.

Have I got value for money from my purchase?

Yes, as I got it heavly discounted, so I can live with the problems.

Though think about this, you go to buy a car and when you get in it, to drive it away, the dashboard is missing?? Would you be happy?

Also you have to ask this, if DTG staff where paying for this with THEIR wages, would they be happy??? I'll leave DTG to answer that one.

Can I recommend this to you?? NO. It would be unfair to tell you it's 100% ready to go when it is not.

This route is probery one of the best routes for train sim! This route have it all! From busy london to the fields of Manningtree. This route have every thing you need, and the route is even better if you go and buy the class 66 and GEML class 90!
