Back in the mystical days of Rail Simulator, RSDL developed this gem, the Isle of Wight.
This route is an absolute classic, it is soaked in value. It's beautifully detailed and it represents the glory days of Train Simulation. You get 3 different trains, the Electric Class 483, the War time Steam Shunter Class 0-4-0ST "Invincible" and finally, the Diesel Personnel Carrier.

From my personal experience, the route is nearly identical to its real life counterpart, aside from some minor details. However, the same cannot be said for the trains. This is where I critique the game.

Although this addon is one of the best examples of value and accuracy for this game, it has a few flaws.
The sounds are the main problem, it sounds nothing like an ancient electric train from 1938, it sounds more like if somebody just make some noises with his mouth and call it a day. However, they have made some improvements, back in February, they had an update, it wasn't very worthwhile, considering it broke all pre-update reskins... however, the one improvement they did right was the sound, although it sounds pretty much identical, they at least added details to the sound that weren't in the previous update. Secondly, the physics is okay I suppose, however the physics passenger view resembles more of a monorail running on a perfectly straight rail than a bumpy, old, pre-WWII ex-underground train that we all know and love.

At last, we made it out of the criticism section without being stoned to death by fanboys, moving on...

In conclusion, buy this if you want value, buy this is you want realism and buy this is if you want to experience the glory days of this game, I cannot recommend it enough, it is 5 pounds less than the sub-standard rubbish they release these days. It is 20% cheaper, yet 200% better.

This route is very beautiful. While it is beautiful, the electric locomotives are not very nicely detailed and in some parts of the route, the scenery does not look very realistic. With that said though, overall the route is still very nice and worth the money (when on sale, especially in the Summer Collection).

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.

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.

A perfect route for beginners in train simulator where you get to operate all three systems of railroading: steam electric and diesel. There a good amount of lines that are in the same "beginner's" category (in my opinion).
