Go to work on a classic American branch line and experience challenging and authentic workdays just like real railroaders do with Norfolk Southern N-Line Scenario Pack 01, from High Iron Simulations!
As re-created in Train Simulator’s Norfolk Southern N-Line route, NS’s well-known N-Line diverges from the railroad’s busy Washington, D. C. – New Orleans main line at Yadkin Junction in Salisbury, North Carolina, then makes its way southeasterly 25 miles to Halls Ferry, North Carolina. The Norfolk Southern N-Line is noted for its hard-to-handle “saw tooth” profile, sharp curves, and journey through North Carolina’s lush and scenic forest country.
While the Norfolk Southern N-Line has the timeless appeal of a traditional southern branch line, it is also vital and alive with tonnage traffic and numerous line-side customers, and in this realistic scenario pack you’ll experience all the challenges of local freight duties as well as lineside and yard switching operations!
In ten career scenarios set across different seasons and with versatile locomotives including the EMD GP38-2, GP40-2, and GP60, you’ll handle Norfolk Southern Local P92 working each direction over the entire length of the N-Line. Plus, you’ll handle switching chores at Old Spencer Yard in Salisbury and take the engineer’s controls of a heavy stone-laden quarry extra!
Note: This scenario pack requires the Train Simulator Norfolk Southern N-Line Route Add-On. Select scenarios also require the Norfolk Southern GP60 Add-On.
Climb aboard for ultra-realistic and challenging railroading along of one America’s most captivating and busy branch lines – with High Iron Simulations’ Norfolk Southern Scenario Pack 01 now available at the Steam and Dovetail Games stores! – Gary Dolzall
Go to work on a classic American branch line and experience challenging and authentic workdays just like real railroaders do with Norfolk Southern N-Line Scenario Pack 01!

From High Iron Simulations, the new Norfolk Southern N-Line Scenario Pack 01 features ten realistic career scenarios. The scenario “Old Spencer Switch Job” puts you in the engineer’s seat of veteran NS EMD hi-nose GP38-2 5018 working Old Spencer Yard in Salisbury. The veteran Geep switches the yard as a mainline freight rolls past (above), then later calls at a Salisbury grain elevator (below).
In the multi-part career scenario “Norfolk Southern P92 South,” you’re called as the engineer of NS local freight P92 with EMD GP38-2s as power and you will make a complete run over the line from Salisbury (above) to Halls Ferry (below) with extensive lineside switching en route.
On a wintry day (yes, it does snow in North Carolina) in the multi-part scenario “N-Line Quarry Extra,” you are an engineer making a run from Old Spencer to Gold Hill Quarry and return. NS GP40-2 3050 and a sister couple onto heavy stone loads at Gold Hill Quarry (above). On the return journey, the quarry extra holds at Yadkin Junction (below) as a Norfolk Southern mainline freight hustles past.
It is a magnificent autumn day in the multi-part scenario “Norfolk Southern P92 North” as you handle a potent pair of NS EMD GP60s working the full length of the N-Line from Halls Ferry to Old Spencer Yard with extensive switching duty along the way. The P92 makes a pick-up at Gold Hill (above) and later meets a work extra at Granite Quarry siding (below).
With Norfolk Southern EMD GP60 7144 on the point, NS local P92 rolls through Misenheimer, North Carolina.
