Following a recent patch (23rd Feb, 2015), various fixes and improvements have been made to this add-on. Not only do all previously broken scenarios now work but aesthetic improvements have been made (no floating objects, rain effects on the 483's windows) and even new Southern Railway semaphore signals have been added to replace the default Kuju ones!

As the route itself is fairly short and the assets can seem dated compared to more recent routes, £19.99 might seem a little steep to some. Personally I think the ubiqueness of the line and variety of rolling stock makes it worth it, even at full price. But in sales this can drop significantly and is definitely worth the purchase, especially as some older third party routes require the assets.

Let me first start of by saying this DLC DOES work! Not sure why so many guys seem to have problems with it. Works fine for me.

Now back to rating the DLC :D

The Route is beautiful. I can't say if it looks like the real route since i never been to the Isle of Wight but it looks pretty good to me. It comes with several scenarios aswell as a Class 483 Tube Train and 0-4-0ST Steam Loco. I love the fact that they use an old London Underground Tube Train :D Both Locos look nice and are easy to drive.

It is a fun little cosy route and well worth the 11 Bucks i paid for it durring the Sale

This route is very nicely done and comes with lots of senarios. the tube stock is a bit basic but that means it not too hard to use meaning its a good train for a begginer like me, The interior of the tube is nice apart from the man that looks like a cardboard cutout. the steam engine is very good its not to hard to use like other bigger steam engines. the senarios are very good and you won't run out of them like newer route dlc's. I recomend this dlc to begginers.
