About This Content

Experience picturesque and challenging border territory with Bossman Games’ stunning Welsh Marches route for Train Simulator!

What is now known today as the Welsh Marches line first appeared in the 1850s, after the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway sought to connect these towns by rail, as well as unlocking access for mineral traffic. This was followed immediately with opening of the Shrewsbury and Hereford Railway, which extended reach further north, creating a 98-mile secondary mainline which danced across the English/Welsh border.

Over time, many of the freight-focused branch lines that served the route were closed, however the main route itself would prove to be successful, and a key connection between South and North Wales, as well as with towns in England.

Even today, much of the line’s character comes from its infrastructure, with stations that still echo days past of the GWR, as does Severn Bridge Junction signal box, which is the largest operational mechanical signal box in the world. All this, as well as the picturesque scenery throughout, provide a stark contrast with the modern and built-up Newport station on the South Wales Main Line.

Explore the Welsh Marches in all its historic and diverse beauty with Bossman Games’ Welsh Marches route for Train Simulator!
