WCML Trent Valley-Разработчик/издатель: Thomson Interactive/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 8 июля 2015 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- Completed in 1847, the Trent Valley Line now forms part of the West Coast Main Line
(WCML), which runs from London Euston to Glasgow. Central to the WCML is its 399-mile
(642 km)-long core section between London Euston and Glasgow Central[1] with principal
InterCity stations at Warrington Bank Quay, Wigan, Preston, Lancaster, Oxenholme, Penrith
and Carlisle. The length of the WCML's main core section is nominally quoted as being 401.25
miles (645.7 km). The basis of this measurement is taken as being the distance between the
midpoint of Platform 18 of London Euston to that of Platform 1 of Glasgow Central, and has
historically been the distance used in official calculations during speed record attempts.
The line was electrified during the 1960s and after subsequent upgrade programmes, now
features a mixture of Mk1 and UK1 catenary equipment. Much of the line has a maximum
speed of 125mph (201km/h) meaning Class 390 Pendolinos and Class 221 'Super Voyagers'
can make the journey in a little over five hours. It is also one of the busiest freight routes in
Europe, carrying more than 40% of all UK rail freight traffic.
The Trent Valley Line was opened in 1847 to give a more direct route from London to the
North West of England, bypassing the existing route via Birmingham built by the Grand
Junction Railway and the London and Birmingham Railway a decade earlier.
Connecting the towns of Rugby, Nuneaton, Atherstone, Polesworth, Tamworth. Lichfield Trent
Valley, Rugeley Trent Valley and Stafford, the line follows its namesake, the River Trent, and
criss-crossing the Oxford, Coventry, and Trent and Mersey Canals along the way.
The line was electrified in the 1960s and was primarily four-track along the 60 mile distance.
However, prior to 2004, the line had an 11 mile (18 km) section of track between Tamworth
and Armitage that was only double track. A programme of engineering works upgraded the
full line to four tracks, allowing more train capacity on this busy route.
The 60 mile (96km) WCML Trent Valley route from Thomson Interactive is set in the present
day with full overhead electrification, from Stafford to Daventry International Rail Freight
Terminal (DIRFT).
Also included is a Class 66 diesel locomotive in DRS livery, multimodal freight wagons and a
Class 350 Desiro EMU.

-Virgin Trains BR Class 390 'Pendolino' EMU

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский, немецкий и французский | Год выпуска: 12 апреля 2018 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- Be enticed by the Class 390 'Pendolino' – one of the most intriguing trains ever built!
Combining the contentious 'tilting' technology of the Advanced Passenger Train with Alstom's
ETR 401s, the Pendolino was the first to bring comfortable tilting to British rails – and at
speeds of up to 125mph! The perfect addition to fans of the WCML, try out the Pendolino
By the turn of the 21st Century, the West Coast Main Line was in dire need of major overhaul,
and new traction. The Inter-City powerhouses such as the Class 86 and Class 87 had done
their time, and a brand-new era was due.
Privatisation saw Virgin Trains win the bid for the West Coast franchise; it was Virgin's goal to
reduce journey times and improve comfort between London Euston and Glasgow Central.
Some of the work to achieve this would be modernisation of the WCML itself, and to run on it,
a fleet of state-of-the-art high-speed trains – and to go all out – Virgin wanted tilting traction.
The West Coast Main Line has a history with tilting technology; its many curves slow trains
down in order to maintain passenger comfort, and while the track itself cants, or super-
elevates, into each curve, there is only a certain degree to which this is a safe practice. Any
further tilting would have to be done by the rolling stock themselves.
British Rail engineers explored the concept of a train which could tilt around curves, the
project would culminate into the 'Advanced Passenger Train' (APT). A gas-turbine
experimental unit was developed in the 1970s to prove the theory, and the technology was
then tried and tested in the electric prototype in the 1980s.
Ultimately, the pressure to push APT into service let flaws seep through while in service, and
growing opposition from the press combined with a falling political will saw the project
shelved. The traction motor technology was used to develop the Class 91, and the tilting
technology sold to Fiat.
Despite the failure of tilting some 20 years prior, it was seen by Virgin Trains as a solution to
the slalom-like West Coast Main Line, and so, an order was placed for 53 high-speed electric
multiple units. The units were to come from Alstom, who had recently taken over Fiat, which
themselves combined the APT technology with their own ETR 401 efforts to make the
'Pendolino' family.
The knack of APT's tilting was that it was too good, a bold claim, but proven with the fact that
passengers didn't notice the tilt, disrupting their balance upon looking out the window. Fiat's
Pendolinos work around this by forcing the train to tilt at key points in the curves, making the
motion noticeable, and subsequently less nauseating, for those on-board.
Now refined, the tilting technology of the Pendolinos was to pay dividends; the Virgin Trains
fleet, classified as the Class 390, was designed to be capable of 140mph, as it was the
intention to have the WCML upgraded for such high speeds.
Unfortunately, the aspirational upgrade was never fully delivered, and the speed limit only
taken up to 125. Still, this was a significant increase in-and-of-itself, and the tilting
capabilities of the Class 390s could take full advantage of key sections, where conventional
trains would have to run slower.
When ordered, the 53 Class 390s were split into 8 and 9-car configurations, however capacity
concerns were quickly raised following their introduction into service in 2002, and all units
were brought up to 9-cars in 2004. To further increase capacity, 62 extra cars were built and
delivered between 2009 and 2012, bringing 31 sets up to 11-cars, and a further 4 brand new
11-car sets also joined the fleet.
Since 2002, the Class 390s have been working limited-stop services between London Euston,
and several key stations including Manchester Piccadilly, Liverpool Lime Street, and of course
Glasgow Central. The fleet has also traversed the North Wales Coast Line in years prior,
hauled by modified Class 57s.
In Train Simulator, the Virgin Trains BR Class 390 'Pendolino' will arrive in Pro Range fashion,
kitted out with extra details and features that make the experience all-more immersive. You
