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.
