If you’ve ever wanted to drive a train along the UK’s first high-speed rail line, then a new route release for Train SIM World 2 will excite you.

Dovetail Games latest release adds a new 51-mile route from London’s King’s Cross St. Pancras to Faversham, joining the lines that serve Gravesend, Medway and beyond.

On the train simulator, you’ll be taking commuters to and from work using the TVM430 signalling system on HS1, and with the line able to reach 140mph, experienced train simulator drivers will still need to get used to coming into stations correctly.

There’s the full 14 stations along the route included, and a range of timetables.

As for the trains, they will be a choice of BR Class 395 EMU, with 10th anniversary branding, or a Trainbow variant, or the BR Class 375/9 EMU in Southeastern Dark Blue.

It possibly not a surprise that Dovetail Games added the HS1 line to their line up of train simulators, as the company is based in Chatham, a short hop from the nearby HS1 station.

The Southeastern High Speed expansion is available for Train Sim World 2 for Steam on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Key Features:

  • 51-mile (82 km) route from London St Pancras to Faversham
  • BR Class 395 EMU in Southeastern Highspeed ‘10th Anniversary‘ and ‘#Trainbow‘ liveries

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
