About This Content

Mendip Aggregates Ltd also purchased two of the Class 04 shunting locomotives that had been slated for the cutter's torch which then replaced their tired stock of shunting steam locomotives.

Looking down the list of DLC, I cannot believe this broken rubbish continues to be sold. Don't waste your money folks. Its never worked in the 2+ years I've owned it. Everything Growler says in his review of 13 June 2015 is correct. My understanding is that this is a 3rd party product thats been abandoned by the original developer, although they continue to take peoples money. I can't understand why DTG don't do more to distant themselves from this route. DTG do themselves no favours by continuing to promote this

If you want "CatFish" wagons for your steam era scenarios, then this route is a must.

Shocking that it is still for sale! A very broken route!! And unbelievably so, since it's very release approx 4 years ago. From the word go, a couple of the scenarios have been kaput; simply because of careless programming of the numbering of wagons that need collecting in various tasks. This makes the scenarios immediately impossible to complete because the wagons don't match the intruction briefing task list. The problems with the route have been further compounded by the fact, that the release of the TS2015 version of the game appears to have broken the moving ballast loader i.e. it's no longer possible to fill your wagons with stones. Which kind of defeats the whole purpose of the route delivering stone aggregate from one end of the route to the other!

As others have pointed out the constant defeaning echo caused by a faulty track EFX is not only unpleasant to listen to, it drowns out all the other sounds in the route. The route is very short, single track, and has painfully low maximum speed limits (not that the shunter would allow much more anyway, it's underpowered for the route; a Class 08 would fit the bill far better), resulting in complete painful tedium travelling from end to end along the route.

The positives, well the Class 04 shunter is a nicely designed & attractive RailWorks model, and the same can be said of the catfish ballast wagons. They would be of genuine value to use in other routes. But given the route can basically be considered a right-off, £15 is expensive to buy a shunter and single wagon type for use as assets in alternative route creations.

Sadly in its current defunct state this has to be one of the very worst DLCs available for the Train Simulator game. So overall a big miss!

Thumb to the side! This old route of 2011 requires urgently an update:

- the echoing audio when running with EFX on
- the black shadow stripe that runs down one rail all along the route
- adjustment to rear coupler on Class 04 to make it able to couple to other stock
- loco update for Class 04

If you have TS2014 / 15 do not buy it before an official update is released! The track is small but nice. And it has problems with TS2014 / 15
