This route is one of my favorite British/Scottish routes currently available for TS!
This is a very well put together route, even on the lowest graphics settings, it still looks quite nice! Also, the track has lots of detail as well, such as check rails on certain bridges. Signalling seems to work well, no problems enountered by me! The cantenary is nice, it even has extra transformers every once and a while on the poles! THere are only a few points on the tracks that are bad, such as one place where there is a concrete slab in the middle of the tracks. Also, the thing that is usually wrong with tracks, is the complete lack of banking on tight corners. Still, this can easily be overlooked, except when you take a tight turn at 100:)
The engine included, the Class 86, is a real nightmare to drive, but in a good way! It includes an advanced system of throttling, with tap changer very well modelled! It is really fun to start this up on a grade, because you have to keep the RPM's in the green/yellow zone, and not let it get into the red for wheelslip. What is really difficult is cutting power to the engine from full throttle, but that justs adds to the challenge!! The only downside to this loco is the horn. It is the same horn as the Woodhead Class 76/77, but that can be easily ignored/looked past with the other good points!
The scenarios are fun to play, not boring in the least! Also, there is a WIDE variety of DLC for this route, and they are fun :)
Would I recommend this route? Yes, I would definitly recommend this, hands down. This is a great route, and you would be a fool not to pick it up!
