Acerca de este contenido

The Portsmouth Direct Line Expansion Pack is a recreation of the 49-mile railway line between Woking and Portsmouth Harbour via Guildford. Based on the line as it appeared between 2000 and the present day, this expansion pack includes the Class 450 electric multiple unit (a very familiar sight on the line) and faithful representations of all 16 stations along the route. The Portsmouth Direct Line runs through busy urban centres, suburbs and rural areas as it makes its way from Woking in Surrey across the North and South Downs to the historic naval town of Portsmouth on the South Coast.

The line was first begun in 1845, at which time the steep gradients of the Downs between Guildford and Petersfield proved a struggle for steam traction. Journey times improved with the electrification of the line in 1937, and by the late 2000s the third-rail 750-volt DC line was served predominantly by Class 444 and Class 450 EMUs. The Class 450 EMU included with the Portsmouth Direct Line is closely modeled on the real Siemens-built Class 450 ‘Desiro’ units which entered service in 2003, and features accurate controls and sound effects, plus realistic details including matrix destination displays, independent left and right door controls and more.

Includes:

Class 450 'Desiro' electric multiple unit (EMU)

I think everyone would agree that this route needs an upgrade.

I live near the route and have been travelling between Woking and Portsmouth numerous times, and comparing it to this it almost looks like it has no character. The developers must have spent so little time and effort to this route than other such as London to Brighton, Liverpool to Manchester and South London Network to name a few.

In order to improve the route DTG need to:
- Add consist tilt to certain areas such as at Godalming, Rowlands Castle etc.
- Texture and scenery improvements to make it look like the real thing
- Improve timetables to scenarios included

DOVETAIL UPGRADE IT PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty much only the Woking to Portsmouth bit has scenery. The rest of it doesn't. There's even a bit where there is a loop which isn't supposed to be there. If you do want thhis route then get it on a large sale. Otherwise invest your money on something else

If you want a route with over half the track with no scenery, then this is for you! The mainline between Woking and Portsmouth is nice, and has scenery. But up north, towards Woking, there is extra tracks which forms a huge network that is around half, or even more of the total route's mileage, which DOES NOT HAVE SCENERY. DPS does have a updated version to this, but this is only to the line between Woking and Portsmouth, and not to the extra tracks. So if you want the entire route to have scenery, WHICH THE ENTIRE ROUTE SHOULD HAVE, you will have to include it your self. The EMU which is included is a joke. 1) The brakes SUCK 2) No Passenger View and 3) No DRA. It's nice to know, that DTG has been aware of this Packs's issues for along time, but still havent fixed them, just 4 years after this has been raised. I give this a -6 out of 10.

Good route, nice detail and plenty of stations for stopping services or expresses. Class 450 is not a brilliant train, badly simulated with awful brakes and no passenger view. Other than that this is a decent route, not my favourite but not bad.

NOTE- DO NOT BUY THIS INDIVIDUALLY!!! Buy it in the UK collection- same price for this, class 444, GEML, class 90 and more!

This route is one of my favourite, mainly because it is nearest to me. This is a lovely route that I play literally everytime I'm on Train Simulator.

Postives
-Distance is very accurate
-Nice scenary
-Track layout is great
-Class 450 is supplied with it
-DPS upgrade available, with London - Faversham.

Negatives
-Released in 2012- looks old now.

I don't have a problem with this route, but they are the issues I think that do come accross to most.

This was one of the products I bought in the 'UK Collection'. So, what do I think?

Well, let's get the bad stuff out-the-way first. The braking on the Class 450 is attrocious, not to mention there's the 50/50 chance that when applying said-brakes, you'll trigger the Emergency Brake and have to stop. The other thing is that it's all well doing Woking to Portsmouth, but there's so many lines included in this route that do not have scenery. This is both a crying shame (you get the lines to Redhill, Alton, Ascot, etc.) and a huge waste of space. Apart from being somewhere for the AI Trains to go, they're pretty much pointless to include. Finally, there's the price. This is definetly not a £24.99 route. £18.99 would've been much more reasonable. But since I bought this in a Collection during a sale at a much, MUCH reduced price, it doesn't bother me.

Now, what's good about this route? The rolling stock is nice, but it's not just Class 450's that run the Portsmouth Direct Line in reality (I'm glad that in the Collection I bought, I got the Class 444 as well). They're good to drive (bar-braking) & it's a nice long run all the way from Woking to Portsmouth. The scenario's are good too, the first of which tells the player a lot about the line in question which is brilliant! More TS Routes should do this...

Overall, this is a fairly solid route, but take my advice: get it in a Collection or Bundle, and get another EMU (e.g. Class 444) to go with it. It's fun none-the-less though so if third-rail electrics are you're thing, this may just be the route for you.

Wow!
I very highly recomend this amazing route.
The detail of it is brilliant and don't forget to get the DPS version alongside it.
I have been to Guilford staion and town a couple of times, and the layout of the buildings and roads is spot on.
I highly recomend this route! It is a must buy.

Get it with the UK collection.

The route itself is nice, aside from the fact you only use about 1/3 of it (the rest is undetailed and/or unelectrified)

Like everyone says, the 450 has poor braking, but if you took my advice and got the UK collection (which you'd be really dumb not to because it's for the same price) then you'll have the 444, which makes up for it in my opinion even if it does have the same sounds.

Nice route nice scenery, but unpolished. It seems like DTG gave up fixing the issues in this route as it was released in 2012 and now it's 2015 still no updates.

-Class 450 the handling is ABYSMAL. The brakes are too weak, and this is not me exaggerating. Enter a 12-car platform at 40mph, set the brakes to 81% (maximum non-emergency level), and watch the train overrun. Such basic issue that ruins gameplay. Also most buttons in the cab is non-functioning.

-Some scenarios unable to achieve gold medal. For one the maximum score you can get is 400, so not for those gold medal OCD patients. some scenarios also have terrible timetables such that you are very early in one station, and very late for the next station.

-Route only goes from Portsmouth to Woking, could be extended to Waterloo for the whole experience (only 15 more miles). Seems like developers too lazy to finish off the last bit.

Final words: Do pick one up if it's over 50% off, but refrain from purchasing until DTG gave it an upgrade like Isle of Wight.

Well.

Route:
This route is a very nice route, good scenery (only the Woking to Portsmouth bits - even though the track between Redhill and Wokingham, Ascot and Wokingham, Ascot and Aldershot, Brookwood and Alton, Guildford to Hinchley Wood and Guildford and Aldershot is there, there is no scenery). BUT - don't buy this route. Buy the UK Collection which comes with this route, the GEML, Class 444 (A must have if you want to play any scenarios from the workshop), Class 66 Freightliner and Class 90 all for the same price. BUY THE UK COLLECTION AND NOT THIS ROUTE! This is one of 2 reasons why I don't recommend it. Howeve the fact that this route doesn't go from Waterloo to Woking which is a large let down so after a while this route can get boring. So to sum up: good add-on with some bits left out but buy the UK Collection instead.

Train:
No. No. No, no, no, no. This train has some MAJOR mistakes.
The cab view is fine. Nothing special here.
The train looks decent. There are some discrepancies between it and the class 450 in real life, but otherwise it is reasonable. Also there is no SWT branding but there's a patch for that from UKTS.
There is no passenger view. I don't know how long it takes but judging by the quality of other passenger views, I don't think it takes long. But there isn't one. Pure laziness.
The physics are a joke. The braking distance is shocking, and I mean shocking. If you are not under 30mph by the time you enter a platform, you are not going to stop at that platform. Most trains do it at around 40 with max breaking, some have done it from 50 but 30 is not realistic at all. How did this get through the testing? How?
The sounds are of the normal standard: Utter joke. Painful to listen to if you've been on any British electric Desiro.
The 450 could have been good but the sounds and physics made it go from decent to painful-to-drive. It's not as bad as the DTG 321 but then that's not really saying anything.

So buy the UK Collection and never drive the 450 without the appropriate Armstrong Powerhouse sound pack.

Route Pros:
Nice scenery...
Iterestingly enough, there are some grades on this line, that are steep enough to catch attention!
Quite a few level crossings (which i like)
Many scenarios
Performs EXTREMELY well for me.

Route Cons:
I can't find any!

Class 450 Pros:
Nice looking on the outside

Class 450 Cons:
The brakes are TERRIBLE
Cabview is (in my opinion) very badly modelled.
The horn is the SAME horn from the Class 455, the Class 360, AND the Class 380!

Should you buy this route? Ya, I guess you should, overall it is a pretty enjoyable drive!

For a commuter trains junkie like myself, this route is a must, right after London-Brighton. Of course, in its basic state, with only Class 450 included, it's lifeless, but if you can grab the PDL Collection it becomes a nice commuter experience.

So yes, but only the whole PDL collection.

This route is a another welcome addition to TS (Train Simulator) collection. It has scenary only the Woking to Portsmouth only but no scenary outside the line except for the platform scenary. It also can have me to have a chance to create a 2 part Portsmouth to London Victoria.

There are some disapointments about this route:
This route unfortunately does not go all the way to Wateloo.
The Class 450 stops badly and sometimes you can derail or ran over a red signal (Buy the PDL [Portsmouth Direct Line] Collection if you can).

But still, for me, it is still recommended even for Portsmouth Direct Line Collection. You can have the DPS (DPSimulation) PDL [Portsmouth Direct Line] if you have the London Faversham High Speed Route Add-On. Note: Does not add scenary or anything. Just the rail it just changed.
