About This Content

The Edinburgh-Glasgow Expansion Pack is a recreation of the line from Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Queen Street via Falkirk High, and including the Grangemouth Intermodal terminal and refinery area. Originally dating back to 1842, the line runs through open countryside passing through several stations including Haymarket, Linlithgow, Polmont, Falkirk High and Bishopbriggs, and passes the famous Murrayfield Stadium outside Edinburgh and the world famous Falkirk Wheel. Also included is the Falkirk Grahamston Branch between Polmont and Greenhill Upper Junction and the Class 170 Turbostar DMU. The route features highly-detailed models of both terminus stations, all stations along the line and the expansive intermodal terminal and refinery area, complete with atmospheric sound effects. The Edinburgh-Glasgow Expansion Pack has been developed by Thomson Interactive with a focus on the ‘driver’s eye’ view, all station and line-side features being fully detailed and more distant landscape features represented with simpler detail to improve game rendering performance while driving.

Includes

  • Class 170 DMU.
  • Full Edinburgh to Glasgow via Falkirk High route, with Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket, Edinburgh Park, Linlithgow, Polmont, Falkirk High, Falkirk Grahamston, Camelon, Grangemouth Intermodal Terminal, Croy, Lenzie, Bishopbriggs and Glasgow Queen Street.
  • Six scenarios plus four free-roams.

Definitely recommended.
The base route comes with the Class 170 DMU (don't purchase it alone), and provides 7 scenarios, 4 of which are available as career as well for roughly 3900 total. These scenarios use the high speed mainline and seem to follow real-life timetables; AI is also labeled, adds a nice touch. They aren't really tight either, allowing for a realistic driving (warning = slow down), unlike some more modern scenarios. In this part, the scenery is nice, lush, but a bit low detail.

I played 3 train DLCs - the Class 08 which is in the twin pack, the 66 and 57 Freightliners in order of difficulty. They use some branch lines, which have much more detailed scenery, too. Playing them all is a bit redundant, probably the Railtour 57 is a better choice. The 66 is also part of a big pack. The brand new (2016-07) Class 68 is also for this route.

The route doesn't support quick drive, however it comes with a few free roams, which you can clone and add any train you like. Also all trains are quick drive compatible.

Ok, so I bought this route on sale last week. I actually just wanted the Class 170 but decided to buy the package since the price is now the same (yeah yeah, sale will come, but still, more value for money and stuff......)

This route is actually pretty versatile, there is a lot of possiblitity for freight but also opportunities for express/stopping trains on this route. You don't need hours fo finish the whole route but there is enough track to keep you occupied.

The quality is quite good eventhough I play only with a laptop with less then avarage specs.

I'd recommend this route over the standalone Class 170 package.

Oh, to anwser the question for everyone who wants to know it; the Class 170 comes with ALL liveries, not just the Scottish ones, also the others, including Class 171 Southern.

This is an older route and it's not even very long but I highly recommend this if it's on sale (I dont think ANY TrainSim route is worth full price to be honest).

Firstly, it looks great and has the scope to do commuter or express passenger as well as freight workings as well. The class 170 DMU really is a great little train as well (developed by Thompson) and comes with quite a few liveries for free as well. If you like any routes in the UK and don't have the Class 170 then this should a bonus reason to get it.

Secondly, if you don't have a killer, supercharged PC and want something that won't turn into a slideshow, this is one of the best routes i've run. It's SOOOOO smooth that Jeremy Clarkson would probably mention 'babyoil' if he was talking about it!

Really nice route to drive. My only two complaints focus on the Edinburgh Stations. Waverley seems a little lifeless and it is a shame that model at Haymarket has not been updated to reflect some of the changes from the last 4 years. Otherwise, great fun and certainly a route that I'll go back to soon!

Ok, let's get a few things straight:
THIS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!
I mean no it isn't.
Actually, it's a bit average. It's still a good addition.

(I guess that's why it's average; it was released with RailWorks 2.)
