Canadian National Peace River Available Now

07/12/2017

http://store.steampowered.com/app/621926/Train_Simulator_Canadian_National_Peace_River_Route_AddOn/

Enjoy contemporary and challenging railroading in the spacious prairies of Alberta, Canada as the remarkable Canadian National Peace River route comes to Train Simulator!

Created by Milepost Simulations, the Canadian National Peace River route delivers the experiences of hauling lumber products, timber, grain, and mixed commodities across 40 route miles of demanding, scenic Canadian National trackage located in Northern Alberta, Canada.

Train Simulator’s Canadian National Peace River route is centered upon the town of Peace River, Alberta, and includes portions of the Canadian National Railway’s Peace River, Manning, and Daishowa Subdivisions. The southern end of the Train Simulator Canadian National Peace River route is at Judah, located high on the Alberta prairie. From Judah to Grimshaw, via Peace River and Roma Junction, the route re-creates much of the CN Peace River Subdivision. From Roma Junction to nearby Roma Yard, the route replicates a key element of the CN Manning Sub, and from Michaud (on the west bank of the Peace River), the route fully re-creates the modern and rugged 10-mile Daishowa Subdivision to Peace Valley.

The included rail lines provide the Canadian National Peace River route with both main line tonnage and robust lineside tonnage sources, including grain elevators and loading facilities at Grimshaw, and a modern and expansive lumber mill at Peace Valley. Handling main line tonnage on the Canadian National Peace River route is a guarantee of challenging railroading. The line between Judah and Peace River involves a tortuous 2.4 percent grade linking the river valley and high prairie. The work west of the river is demanding, too; climbing from Michaud to Roma involves a gradient of over 2 percent and use of a double-horseshoe to gain elevation.

The Canadian National Peace River route includes locomotives and rolling stock ideally suited to serve on the line. The featured locomotive is Canadian National’s six-axle, 3,000-horsepower SD40-2W. Based on Electro-Motive’s standard SD40-2, the SD40-2W features the Canadian “comfort cab,” a design which includes a full-width and strengthened nose, more spacious crew cab, and distinctive four-piece windshield. The SD40-2W is provided in two CN liveries, the railway’s current livery and CN’s earlier “zebra stripe” livery. Featured freight equipment includes Canada’s classic cylindrical-design covered grain hoppers in two well-known liveries; boxcars in two liveries; center-beam and bulkhead lumber flats; and a Canadian National-design steel cupola caboose. And to put you right to work hauling tonnage and handling switching duties, the route also features a selection of six career scenarios which provide realistic operating experiences across the entire 40-mile route.

Explore the great prairie and river country of Canada and master a range of locomotive skills with the Canadian National Peace River route!

Corris Railway Expansion Pack Available Now

06/12/2017

http://store.steampowered.com/app/562380/Train_Simulator_Corris_Railway_Expansion_Pack_Loco_AddOn/

Experience industrial narrow gauge along the Corris Railway with this expansion pack for Train Simulator, featuring No. 5 “Alan Meaden” and No. 9 “Aberllefenni”. Explore the mountains of North Wales with these beautiful locos along a route that survives thanks to the dedicated efforts of rail enthusiasts!

The Corris Railway was a small freight line used for moving minerals that closed in 1949. In 1966 Alan Meaden started a group of volunteers to preserve what remained of the Corris Railway. Only one of the original locomotives from the Corris Railway survives to this day, No. 4, which is now at home on the Talyllyn Railway. The locomotives in use today are either from other railways or new builds.

Locomotive No.5 is a 4-wheel Motor Rail Simplex, Works No.22258 that was purchased in 1974. Built in 1965, it was originally used on the 2 ft (610mm) gauge gypsum mining system at Staveley Lime Products, Hindlow, Derbyshire. It was initially purchased from Staveley by an enthusiast who stripped it down for renovation and was in this dismantled state that it was sold to the Corris Society.

Following an extensive overhaul in the East Midlands, No.5 ran for the first time on Corris rails in 1979. It is named “Alan Meaden” in honour of the Society's late founder, who carried out a substantial part of the loco’s rebuilding.

The Corris Society sought a light locomotive to assist in rebuilding the railway, and it has since proven itself to be a very useful general works loco. Although it has on occasion been used for special passenger trains when visiting Talyllyn Railway, it is too light for regular passenger use, and has not been fitted with the necessary air braking equipment.

No.9 is a 4-wheel battery electric locomotive, Clayton B0457, built in 1974. It was formerly in use at the Aberllefenni Slate Quarry by Wincilate Limited. At the request of Wincilate, the locomotive carries the name “Aberllefenni”. It has regular use as a carriage shed shunter, but is too light for actual passenger carriage work as like No.5 it does not have air brakes fitted.

Experience a piece of Welsh narrow gauge history and master bespoke locomotives with the Corris Railway Expansion Pack!
