Rush Hour Now All Summer Long!

Be in control this Summer with Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour
Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour is not far away now so we wanted to go into more detail about how you can pick up this triple-bill of passenger focused routes.
Historically our annual headline release has been a triple-pack that represents a great way to boost your collection quickly. This year, for the first time our major release is coming as a Season Ticket.
This not only gives us additional time to focus on each individual route, but it means that you'll get something brand new to experience regularly throughout the Summer. Read on to find out more.

Rush Hour Routes

The three routes for Rush Hour will now release individually throughout the Summer. Starting with the Boston Sprinter, the fastest passenger line in the United States running from Boston – Providence and featuring the Stoughton branch. Followed by Nahverkehr Dresden, a functional and frenetic route running from Riesa – Dresden with Großenhain, Cottbuser Bahnhof. Lastly experience the hectic London Commuter running from London Victoria – Brighton with the Reigate branch included.
Be in control on these routes across a variety of official locos:
  • Boston Sprinter: Amtrak ACS-64 and MBTA F40PH-3C
  • Nahverkehr Dresden: Deutsche Bahn's BR 442, BR 143, BR 146.2 in DB livery, DB BR 363 ‘V 60’ Diesel Shunter in Deutsche Bundesbahn blue livery, and BR 185.5 in MRCE black livery
  • London Commuter: Southern BR Class 377/4 and Gatwick Express BR Class 387 EMU

Rush Hour Season Ticket

The Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour Season Ticket is a great way to grab all your Rush Hour routes, each delivering a different and exciting rush hour experience, for over 50% off the price of the routes purchased individually – at £34.99 / €39.99 / $39.99 for the Season Ticket.
As you may notice, this is an updated price. With the change to a Season Ticket, and allowing multiple options to purchase, we believe that this is the right price for Rush Hour, and still provides great value for the three routes and nine locos provided within the pack.
If the full pack of routes isn’t for you, you're in control to purchase routes individually at our regular Add-On price: £24.99 / €29.99 / $29.99.
Our routes will be released one at a time, to allow us the time to make sure they are as good as they can be, and with the Season Ticket, you’ll be able to access them all as soon as they launch. The Season Ticket will be available on all platforms, add to your Wishlist on Steam.
