About This Content

Running from Sheffield to Manchester via the rugged landscape of the Pennines, the Woodhead Line was electrified way back in the early 1950s with the Class 76 electric locomotive being built especially for the line. A major feature of the route is the Woodhead Tunnel system, comprising three tunnels (the third being added specifically for the electrification of the line) to enable the line to run through the hilly landscape of the northern Peak District.

The Class 76 electric locomotive was first produced as a prototype (6701) in 1941, with full production beginning in 1950 in Manchester. Under British Rail, Class 76s hauled freight and passenger services along the Woodhead Line until 1970, after which they handled only freight workings. Now closed to traffic since 1981, the Woodhead Line and its tunnels are still a regular destination for rail enthusiasts and hikers, and they have now been brought back to life in Train Simulator.

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure about purchasing this add on. Then it was on offer so I thought I'd give it a go.

It's a fantastic route, the work that's gone into the line, is superb. You can run all engines on here with it being OHL (Over Head Line) ie Electric.

Plenty of station's so if you have any Class101dmu's they fit in the scenery. Free roam is good as well, as there are lot of sidings and branch of lines to use...

Only downside at this point some of the Scenario's are not working propely, upto DTG to sort that out time will tell.

Fantastic in QD with any train...

This route is BEAUTYFUL. This route is good for any historic or modern scenarios with the black 5, 8F, class 08 and class 76.

This was a nice surprise, it wasn't on my wish list but as it was only £12 I bought it. It's how I remember UK railways of yore, plenty of railway infrastructure, sidings, signal boxes, semaphore signals. Never travelled on this line so I cannot vouch for its authenticity, however if you like industrial and rural landscapes, challenging gradients, speed restrictions over complex junctions then I thoroughly recommend this route.
