Train Sim World 4

Cargo Line Vol.2 - Aggregates – Coming Soon

More gameplay, more services, more Scenarios! Skyhook Games are adding more to three UK route Add-ons with the second release in the Cargo Line series. Cargo Line Vol.2 - Aggregates is coming 9th May!
Readers of our April Roadmap and those following Skyhook Games’ own blog posts will already be aware of what’s coming in this gameplay pack. Below we go into some more details about the services and Scenarios added to three route Add-ons (for players than own them) as well as even more Midland Main Line upgrades, including visual improvements and some extra service layers from other Train Sim World content!
We’ll also hit an important milestone for this release, with it being the 100th Add-on available for Train Sim World 4!

NEW Wagon: HOA Bogie Hopper

This pack centres around the addition of the new HOA Bogie Hopper Wagon to facilitate more services across three routes where the movement of aggregates is key. Broadly speaking, aggregates consist of any collection of rocks. In the aggregates industry, this can be crushed stone, sand, gravel, and slag for use in the construction, for example.
In Cargo Line Vol.2 - Aggregates, these Wagons are generated in-game in different variants as part of a consist, much like the varied containers that appear within freight consists from other Train Sim World releases. Skyhook Games have implemented random spawning of graffiti and branding on the HOA Bogie Hopper Wagons.
On Great Western Express and Southeastern Highspeed, branded wagons (without graffiti) appear with VTG branding. In Midland Main Line, these wagons appear unbranded.

The Routes Involved

At two of the relevant real-world routes, there are facilities that help load and unload aggregates from trains for further movement by road or processing on site.
  • In Great Western Express, this is done at a number of places including West Drayton and Hayes. Trains run between these locations and the route’s western end point at Reading, where they continue out of the map as AI. In real life, these services head through to Somerset and South Wales.
  • In Midland Main Line, the aggregates facility at Mountsorrel has been redone and updated to accommodate these trains on both timetabled services and in Scenarios. These trains also have end points well beyond the confines of the map, with the in-game services travelling to either Leicester or Nottingham at either end of the route.
  • Southeastern Highspeed doesn’t have any aggregates processing facilities, but a number of Scenarios have been included centred around engineering works which sometimes result in these trains passing through Medway.

Additional Services and Scenarios
