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).

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

Firstly, this route DOES work, and it works VERY nicely!

Performs well due to it's small size.
The isle of wight was one of the included routes with TS2013, and I very much loved that route, and I am very glad I got it again. THe route is short, but seems longer due to the nice scenery, nice gradients, and a decent speed. Included are two types of trains, and the speeder. As a bonus, you get the steam branchline!

Yes, buy this route, for the price, why not?

The first add on I bought for Rail Simulator 5 years ago. It was, and still is, an essential purchase because many of the assets and track are used in freeware routes on the Steam Workshop and TS2015 download sites across the web.

The add on itself is a nice little route. Very limited in scope but nicely built and perfect for a relaxing drive.

Recommended, if only for the use of the assets on others routes.

This route is getting old now and does have it's faults. In some places, the tracks are placed too close together so passing another train will result in a crash! However, this doesn't happen with the supplied ex London Underground trains, only seeming to effect full size main line stock, so if you do write any scenarios for it, be careful!

Now for the good points, for a start you get 14 scenarios, yes, FOURTEEN! It seems recently it's become the norm for DTG to only give a few, relying on people like you and me to write more for them but this route come already packed with tons to do. As well as this you get three types of train, Diesel, Electric and Steam with a nice varity of rolling stock. The class 483 ex 'tube' trains are unusual and a change from the norm, not wonderfully detailed but you do get two liveries. The Invincible 0-4-0 steam loco is very cute and comes with a couple of period carriages as well as some varied goods stock and you even get a diesel personnel carrier for a bit of fun as well.

The line itself is tiny, 8 miles end to end and i'm sure many will think thats just not worth bothering with after theyve done a run from London to Brighton for example. However, the low speed limits to make for a challenging drive that can last for a surprisingly long time. I recently wrote a scenario for this and just one trip along the line was over half an hour, plenty of time for most players. It's also surprisingly difficult to keep a clean sheet with those speeds as well. Those of us used to rushing to tight commuter timetables will be surprised how hard it is to go SLOWLY!

At the full price this is still pushing it's luck at about £20 but there are many sales and it's part of a couple of packages. If you can get it with a discount, SNAP IT UP!

A nice route for beginners with a 1938 tube stock train. I remember this back in 2013. I still play this route from today.

Isle of Wight....It does not work in "Career", does not load the trains and does not allow the start of the scenario ..... It only works in the "Guide free" but the price paid is not worth the money .... It is not acceptable that Steam sells (dearly) scenarios corrupt .... I uninstalled the expansion to reinstall it later, but the problem persists .... Contact the assistance of Steam? A mirage! Not recommended!

Isle of Wight... Non funziona in modalità "Carriera", non carica i treni e non permette l'avvio dello scenario..... Funziona solo nella modalità "Guida libera" ma il prezzo pagato non vale la spesa.... Non è accettabile che Steam venda (a caro prezzo) scenari corrotti.... Ho disinstallato l'espansione per reinstallarla in seguito, ma il problema persiste.... Contattare l'assistenza di Steam? Un miraggio! Sconsigliato!

Ever since they updated to 2015, I lost this complete route and cannot recover it all!!! WTF is wrong with you ppl at Steam? Or Dovetail! I paid for this, and no matter how many times I try to re-install from my original disk, which was 2013, they still will not appear! As I said before, Valve and this Steam client is nothing but BS!!! You ppl ruined a great name in gaming, when you took over Sierra! You should be ashamed of yourself, period!

I have to love this route yes alright it may not be the best but its not bad the locos are 2 DMU like this in red and blue with a Hawthorne Lesile 0-4-0ST Saddle tank W37 Invincible. I don't normally use W37 that often as I use a 7F, 4F, Black 5, 56xx, Hall, Pannier tank and a BR52 on the line as it is a little more entertaining I do recommend but sometimes the CAREER scenarios doesn't work but the STANDARD ones do work. So overall a 8/10 is my rating
