Om dette indhold

The English Riviera comes to Train Simulator in the beautifully picturesque ‘The Riviera Line: Exeter-Paignton’ route, which runs through some of the most scenic landscape in England.

Set in the area of the south west coast of England known as the English Riviera, due to its mild climate and sandy beaches, this picturesque line opened in May 1846, with a single track broad gauge line transporting holidaymakers from the city of Exeter to the Torbay resorts of Devon. By the end of the same year, the line had been extended to Newton Abbot, and two years later to Torquay – the current Torre station. It was not until 1859 that the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway linked the line from Torre to Paignton.

The 28 mile (45km) line was originally built to Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s broad gauge structure (2,140mm / 7ft 1/4in), a familiar sight on the Great Western Railway network at the time, and was designed for atmospheric power, although this lasted for less than a year from September 1847 - several pump houses can still be seen along the line, acting as reminders of this ill-fated system. The line was eventually converted to standard gauge in May 1892 and later widened to double tracks over the subsequent years.

The non-electrified line is probably best known for its seaside running, rocky coastal scenery and winding tracks, with several miles running along the South Devon sea wall, a picturesque scene during summer months but battered by strong northerly winds and high waves during winter months. Unusually for a UK route, palm trees can also be seen at several stations along the route.

On leaving Exeter St Davids Station, built by Brunel and opened on 1 May 1844, the line crosses the River Exe and passes through the suburbs of the City before heading into the Devon countryside. From Powderham Castle, the railway runs alongside the river and heads into Starcross, where the line first runs along the English Channel. Shortly after, Dawlish Warren comes into sight and for the next 1.5 miles (2.4km), the line runs along the famous South Devon Railway sea wall.

After Dawlish, the line ducks and dives through a series of tunnels cut into the rocky coves, making for a favourite spot of photographers. From Teignmouth to Hackney, the line runs along the River Teign, before heading inland once again to Newton Abbot. Leaving Newton Abbot, the railway widens out to four tracks; the two for Penzance diverge to the right at Aller Junction while the Riviera Line trains climb and then slowly descend towards the sea at Torquay.

Fast passenger services along the line are handled by modern high speed DMUs, including Voyagers and HSTs; stopping services are served by Class 142s, 143s, 150s and 159s. Freight operations are not a major feature of the line but can be seen occasionally.

Included with the route is a First Great Western Class 143, recreating the ‘Pacer’ two-car DMU that is a stalwart of the line. Based on a Walter Alexander bus body, the ‘Nodding Donkey’ was introduced to the rail network in the mid-1980s and is well known for its unsophisticated bouncy ride and meagre seating, faithfully recreated in this model. Also included is a Quick Drive compatible High Speed Train (HST) in First Great Western livery.

A another welcome addition to the TS (Train Simulator) collection. Great waves at around stations near beaches and worth buying! For me, I can have a chance for me to create FGW scenarios like London Paddington to Paignton in multi parts. Comes with a Class 143 (it is based of a bus or you can call it a ex-bus or any kind of bus) and Class 43 (Players that have lowest graphics may spoil the Mark 3 Coaches when on editor [I recommend you to buy the Great Western Main Line Route Add-On if you have lowest graphics]). For me, it can also be definately worth buying in a special sale.

This is one lovely and probably one of the most detailed route DLCs available for RailWorks. It comes with 2 Locomotives, a Pacer and a HST, though I personally prefer the Pacer.
There's great detail to this which makes me wonder why it doesn't lag for me since the West Highland Line does lag for me a lot, but I do run on a laptop and do plan to upgrade in the future.
One of the best things about the locomotives is the sound and that the rail sounds (what people call the clickety-clack) isn't the standard one DTG uses and it adds to the realism of the DLC.
One of the main problems of this route, which is to do with the Pacer loco mainly, is that the doors close very slowly after the closing door beep, and although it's not a plroblem for me, it could be for some people (I'm not saying it is). The other problem with this though is in scenarios, the AI trains leave stations while the doors are closing, and frankly so do I xD, but some peoplemay not like that as it's not realistic, but I don't mind since I'm a victim of doing it.
I really like this route and recommend it to anyone, even at full price as it's worth it.

Great detail, amazing scenery, been to Dawlish and Teignmouth in real life, and they captured the scenery very well! All of this for £14.99, which, to be honest, is actually a good price for this, as it comes with a new train and a whole new route!

Route Pros:
Nice length, not too long, and not too short...
Performs fairly well
Looks nice even on lowest graphics
comes with 6 career scenarios, and plenty of Workshop Scenarios.

Locomotive Pros:
Class 143 is seemingly well modeled
Good sounds
Nice two-tone horn
nice to drive, not very complicated
when the doors close, you get a nice guard to driver and driver to guard buzzer, with "C" button.

Overall, this is a great route! You would be a fool not to get this route, especially for 25 bucks! What are you waiting around waiting for, go buy it!!!!!
