Train Simulator 2019 – Out Now!
Climb aboard iconic traction and explore over 280 miles of stunning, scenic and memorable recreations of real-world routes with Train Simulator 2019, available now!
The biggest update to Train Simulator in years, it has gone 64-bit! Many of you are proud of the extensive collections you’ve built, and you’ve invested many hundreds of hours into Train Simulator, and so going 64-bit is the best possible thing we can do to ensure your collections continue to be accessible and playable well into the future particularly as computers are always moving forward.
The update that includes the 64-bit conversion is free for existing players, and of course ships as part of TS2019 onwards for new players. We’ve also implemented other fixes/additions as part of the core upgrade.
Portsmouth Direct Line: London Waterloo – Portsmouth
A true capital-to-coast service, the Portsmouth Direct Line links London’s largest terminus with the historic town of Portsmouth.
The “Portsmouth Direct” was built to cut down journey times between London and the harbour town, which was previously only served by an indirect route from the west. Calling at major towns en route, and branching off the sprawling main line out of London Waterloo, this route today is 70 miles of non-stop suburban and semi-fast passenger action.
A trifecta of South West Trains traction awaits your command, the BR Class 450, BR Class 444, and BR Class 455, as well as the Southern BR Class 377.
Soldier Summit & Salt Lake City
Explore the stunning plains and valleys that make Soldier Summit one of the best loved mountain passes of the western United States.
This important transportation route climbs the Wasatch Plateau, connecting Helper and Provo along the D&RGW’s highest route in Utah, while traversing the famed Gilluly loops - a series of horseshoe curves - on the western approach to the summit provide that spectacular scenes as heavy freight trains power their way up the pass.
This expanded route delivers the full experience of Rio Grande’s rugged Sixth Subdivision of the railroad’s Utah Division, and motive power for the varied operations comes in the form of D&RGW’s SD40T-2, GP9 and Amtrak’s F40PH locomotives.
Frankfurt High Speed: Frankfurt - Karlsruhe
Covering both the classic lines between Mannheim and Karlsruhe, and the newer, dedicated high-speed link, the Rhine Railway follows its namesake river and sees countless local and international traffic every day, including from Mannheim’s marshalling yard, which is one of the largest in Europe.
To stretch your legs even further, Frankfurt High Speed expands upon the Rhine Railway, adding the scenic Riedbahn, unlocking key ICE passenger services into the historic and expansive Frankfurt Hbf, as well as the city’s essential rail link to the international airport.
You’ll be taking to the Rhine and Ried rails aboard the DB BR 406 ICE 3M, DB BR 189, DB BR 425 and DB BR 294, performing passenger duties and also hauling mixed freight.
