Riviera Line in the Fifties: Exeter - Kingswear-Разработчик/издатель: Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: русский, английский, французский, немецкий, испанский и польский | Год выпуска: 17 сентября 2015 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- Incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1835, the origins of the Great Western Railway lay
with merchants from Bristol who felt threatened by the growing strength of Liverpool as a
major trading port through its development of a railway connection to London. In order to
maintain the importance of their own port, a railway to the west was most definitely needed!
Infamous for its use of the alternative 'Broad Gauge' 7ft infrastructure, the GWR was happy to
wage war with other developing railway companies throughout the remainder of the 1900s,
as lines extended across much of the country using mostly 'Standard Gauge' 4ft 8½in. Slowly
though 'Mixed Gauge' began to eat its way south into GWR territory as the arrangements for
transhipment from one mode to the other for onward travel became a major bugbear.
Following further action from Parliament, the continuation of Broad Gauge was a lost cause.
However, the required space for operating a Broad Gauge railway meant that on conversion to
Standard Gauge, available land was extremely generous. Something which the GWR would
not always learn to take advantage of as we shall see from one particular line on the south
Construction of the line from Newton Abbot to Kingswear occurred in stages between 1852
and 1864 and, unlike other branch line additions, this one attracted higher than expected
patronage from the very beginning. No later than the 1890s, the railway was the sole factor in
establishing Torbay as one of the top holiday destinations of the era. By 1905 the line was
doubled, although curiously only as far as Paignton, leaving the final six miles to Kingswear as
single track. Given continued exceptional growth in traffic through to the 1930s, the GWR was
forced to begin works to enlarge Paignton, though sadly this was interrupted by the onset of
war, and ultimately the plans never became reality. Had any of the other 'Big Four' operated
the route, no doubt Paignton would have developed into a major terminus, but continuing
under the GWR the endless line of holiday trains had to be processed by a facility with no
more than one platform for each direction. To suggest this was still just a 'branch line' was an
understatement as it was not uncommon even on weekdays that more trains were bound for
Torbay, than those to Plymouth or Penzance.
The line down from Exeter St David's to Kingswear is defined by two constituent parts – the
high speed coastal run, skirting the beaches and bays along the Dawlish Sea Wall; and the
mountainous curvaceous crawl down to the seaside resorts. Operating the required trains and
timetables therefore required crews of very broad experience and skills, especially given that
to keep everything moving services frequently operated very early in the morning and usually
late into the night. Add in the occasional channel storm and you have ingredients for some
very weathered men and machines.
Both Exeter and Newton Abbot were well established locomotive depots by the peak of steam
operation of the route in the 1950s, with full compliments of water, coal, turntables and
extensive maintenance facilities, let alone vast stabling sidings for stock to cater for any and
all requirements. Most engines would visit one of these locations during their time in the area,
aside from those allocated to the depots permanently.
Paignton and Kingswear equally featured facilities to establish themselves, with the latter
complimented by its own turntable, even if it was somewhat squeezed into the limited
available space. To relieve Paignton of some of the stresses, nearby Goodrington Sands Halt
was extensively expanded to provide lengthy carriage sidings. Efforts went even further by
starting some services at the Halt, and while this only consisted of four northbound trains a
day, between them some 36 coaches and over two thousand passengers would be catered for
in just a few hours!
To facilitate all this traffic, what about looking at the prestigious motive power developed and
assigned to the significant task of keeping the south coast moving, and the GWR is certainly
famous for its contributions to the history of steam traction.
Eighth in line as Locomotive Superintendent at the GWR, Charles Collett was following in the
footsteps of some very big names for engine design. Isambard Kingdom Brunel himself,
William Dean and George Jackson Churchward to name but a few to have gone before and
left their mark on the rails to the west.
Taking up the post in 1922, Collett was first presented with the myriad of locomotive types
absorbed from company mergers that in several cases would continue to occur for years to
come. Collett was quick to establish a means of standardisation by rebuilding many
locomotives using common GWR manufactured parts from Swindon works. Though this was
not his desired focus.
Charles Collett wanted to design modern new locomotives, and it was in this field where he
was able to leave one of the most significant marks in the GWR history. Wishing to replace
many older types with bigger and better performing machines, Collett would apply his
attention to both tank and tender types, producing no less than 25 different designs that
would see full production during his occupancy.
Amongst those productions would come some of the most iconic locomotives of the day. The
GWR being what it was, which some would claim as the birth of modern marketing
techniques, Collett was responsible for the powerfully named Castle, Hall, Pannier, Grange and
ultimate of them all, King classes. All being of the 4-6-0 type with the exception of the
Pannier, the locomotives would all be ideal express operators for the GWR. Each one of these
designs carrying appropriate names both for themselves and the services they hauled.
This was indeed the pinnacle of steam locomotive development at the GWR. For it was also
under the reign of Charles Collett that diesel power would first appear, and hence forth the
landscape of railway traction would change forever.
Transfer this world to the realms of Train Simulator and you can see we have the setting for a
most amazing experience with the pressures of squeezing mainline traffic onto branch line
facilities; from shunting coaching stock, to hauling holiday expresses and from managing
locomotives to maintaining the timetable.
Driver Assist
Have you ever wanted to drive a steam engine in Train Simulator but thought they were too
complicated, difficult to understand or just too hard to control? Now you can with our new
Driver Assist!
The all new Driver Assist feature provides you with real-time feedback on the handling of the
locomotive, to teach you how to provide optimum control input in order to keep the engine at
peak operating condition. Initially we're including this just for the steam engines in TS2016
but will be listening to your feedback and look at implementing it to other types of
Driver Assist works by highlighting the control required to be adjusted and provides you with
detailed instructions and real-time feedback as to how far you need to move the control and
what effect it has on the locomotive. Once you've got the hang of it, the system is designed
so you can turn it off and go it alone. If you get stuck and feel you need the help again, you
can turn it back on.

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Skyhook Games/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 13 июля 2016 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- In the late 1890s the Great Western Railway were seeking new locomotives as part of their
post-broad gauge conversion modernization. The newly appointed Chief Mechanical Engineer
of the GWR, George Jackson Churchward, sought out designs for modern steam locomotives
that could serve the Western network far into the future. His first success came from the 2-
cylinder prototype known as the Saint Class which, from 1902, would go on to serve as the
standard 2-cylinder design for the foreseeable future. This gave Churchward the desire to
experiment with 4-cylinder locomotives, which could help make a fleet of even more powerful
locomotives. Churchward convinced the GWR to acquire a small handful of four-cylinder
French steam locomotives for comparison.
The first four-cylinder prototype appeared in April 1906 as No. 40 and with the Class being
named the 'Star', No. 40 was named North Star. No. 40, much like the Saint prototypes built
by Churchward before, featured a 4-4-2 wheel arrangement with the standard 4-6-0 being
only a simple conversion away. Various aspects of the design were influenced by the French
locomotives and the wheel arrangement was eventually converted into the classic 4-6-0 by
November of the same year. This was decided after reports concluded that the 4-4-2 design
would suffer during low adhesion or with heavier loads. A clear indication that the Class had
set the standard four-cylinder design was the prototype itself, which would eventually be
rebuilt into a Castle Class locomotive in 1929.
Following the success of the prototype, several series of Star Class locomotives would be built
between 1907 and 1923. Each series was given a different overall name despite them being
part of the same class; for example, after the first batch of 10 locomotives, known as the Star
series were produced, the second batch were classed the Knight series and this trend
continued through each batch of locomotives. Each batch saw various differences between
them, however underneath the standard Star Class remained.
The final Star Class, 4072 Tresco Abbey, was built in February 1923. After this Class had
ended its production run its successor, the 4073 Castle Class, continued on the numbers as a
more powerful express passenger locomotive which originated from the Star Class. In fact, as
many as 15 Castle Class locomotives came to be thanks to Star Class conversions (including
Tresco Abbey).
During its prime, the Star Class fleet operated mainly as an express passenger locomotive,
hauling the longer distance journeys at higher speeds than had been seen before. They
literally were the 'Stars' of the Great Western from London to Bristol and beyond. That was
however until improvements were made upon its design and the more powerful Castle Class –
and also eventually the even more powerful King Class – began to take charge of the top link
expresses out to the West. Many of the Star Class locomotives were displaced to secondary
operations while the new Castle and Kings reigned supreme, however the most reliable of the
Stars did last in service well into the 1950s.
Eventually, the end was approaching for the Star Class, those that hadn't been scrapped by
the mid-1950s were rebuilt into the Castle Class and the final two that were still in service
were withdrawn by British Railways in 1956 and 1957. Out of all the Star Class locomotives,
only one has been preserved and it is done so in a static state; 4003 Lode Star can be found
today as the sole survivor of the Class under the protection of the National Railway Museum,
a non-working exhibit that treasures the legacy behind some of the most iconic GWR
locomotives in history.
The Star Class for Train Simulator features 19 examples of the locomotive from both the

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Victory Works/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 8 сентября 2016 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- Delivering mail and hauling passengers was the Saint Class' staple throughout their
operational lives, leaving London as the day comes to a close and passing through the Riviera
Line in the shadow of night. The Saint Class truly was a grand example of Great Western
engineering and is now ready for you to enjoy in Train Simulator, complete with unique TPO
rolling stock, courtesy of Partner Programme developer, Victory Works.
After modifications to the Great Western Railway network, converting lines into the widely
adopted standard gauge, modernisation quickly came into effect. New lines that shortened
the distance between London and the West Country were not seeing a dramatic change of
journey times, services were still being hauled by older and slower locomotives. New traction
was clearly required and G. J. Churchward, soon-to-be Chief Mechanical Engineer of the GWR,
sought to deliver.
After acquiring several experimental locomotives (and also designing his own), Churchward,
who was now C.M.E. ordered a prototype loco to be built at GWR's Swindon Works. This first
prototype finished production in February 1902 and was numbered '100', later being named
Dean, then William Dean in honour of Churchward's predecessor. This 4-6-0 prototype took
into account of all Churchward's initial findings, however following testing further
modifications would be made to future models, leaving '100' as a unique locomotive.
A further two prototypes were built in 1903, no. 98 and No. 171, each developing on the last
and also featuring a mix of 4-4-2 and 4-6-0 wheel configurations (the latter of which was
eventually proven to be the best, and also chosen as the base for the new production
A total of four different Saint Class production series would be built between 1905 and 1913.
Each series was given its own name, these were; Scott, Ladies, Saints and Courts. Multiple
variants could be listed between the different series, the main differences were in the frames,
boilers and smokeboxes. Combined, the four series came together to form a 77-strong fleet of
Saint Class locomotives.
The Saint Class proved suitable as passenger and mail haulers on longer-distance journeys,
being able to cope with just about anything aside from the top link expresses. Once the Castle
Class was introduced in the early 1920s, many Saints (and their larger sisters, the Stars) were
displaced to secondary duties. However, a problem arose with the Saint class as their large
wheels were deemed ineffective for hauling freight.
While Churchward tried to rectify the lack of freight locomotives with the 4700 Class, his
successor, C. Collett decided to modify the original Saint Design and built out of 2925 Saint
Martin a new prototype locomotive. This new locomotive would become a success and soon
be known as the Hall Class, which in itself turned into the Modified Hall, Grange, Manor and
County Classes. The Saint Class was recognised as, 'one of the most important steps forward
in railway traction of the 20th century' by The Great Western Society, a locomotive that in no
doubt became the future of the GWR.
Despite the acclaims of the revolutionary Saint Class, no examples managed to survive into
preservation. All locomotives were withdrawn from service by 1953 and subsequently
scrapped, leaving their successor locomotives to continue on until the end of steam.
Thankfully, not all hope is lost for the return of the Saint Class. The Great Western Society are
currently in the process of reverting an old Hall Class locomotive, 4942 Maindy Hall, into a
Saint Class no. 2999 Lady of Legend. 2999 is a continuation of the Saint Class' numbering
and so Lady of Legend will essentially be a 'new' locomotive to the Class (aside from being a
Hall conversion) much like 60163 Tornado is to the LNER Peppercorn A1 Class.
The Travelling Post Office
The Great Western Railway was famous for a service called the Travelling Post Office. These
trains would set out from London in the dead of night and deliver the post to every major
town, ready for the locals to open in the morning. The trick to a fast and reliable Travelling
Post Office is to have a consist which does not need to stop, and the solution was quite
The concept of the Travelling Post Office first originated in the 1830s. Post began to run
across the Liverpool & Manchester Railway following an agreement with the General Post
Office, and within the decade it became mandatory that all railways had to carry the mail in
some capacity. It was in 1838 when the concept of sorting the post on the train itself came to
fruition, the Grand Junction Railway was the first, with the post being sorted on the way. This
post service must've proven popular as by the mid-1840s it had been extended up through to
The services quickly became known as Travelling Post Offices, and could either be formed of
dedicated mail rolling stock or a mixture of mail and passenger. Not only did this concept
continue throughout Britain, it was also employed across various Commonwealth countries
and even the Army.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Travelling Post Office is the rolling stock itself, and
how it interacts with the world around it. The Sorting Coach and Baggage Coach would've
been built off of existing rolling stock designs, be that local 'Big Four' or BR Mk1 etc. and
would feature dedicated 'TPO' interiors, complete with unique mail equipment. The Baggage
Coach would be fitted with a net and several mail bag holders, while on the trackside similar
equipment would be standing, ready to perform the mail transfer.
At specific locations, workers inside the TPO would prepare the mail bags to be hung from the
side of the coach, and then these bags would be collected by a trackside net. At the same
time, any empty mail bags would be returned to the coach by a similar process. This operation
happened while on the move and allowed for non-stop services throughout the night.
The first special Travelling Post Office was across the GWR network, London to Bristol
services started in 1855 and the lineside equipment was introduced at Maidenhead and
Slough just over a decade later.

The D7000s worked out of Old Oak Common, Cardiff Canton and Bristol Bath Road, and with their 1700hp Bristol-Siddely/Maybach MD870 engines producing a maximum tractive effort of 46,600 lbf, could effectively handle secondary passenger and freight at speeds upwards of 90mph.
Much like most British Railways locomotives, the D7000s started life in BR Green livery, but some were soon seen in BR Blue before the entire fleet was untimely withdrawn from service. Unlike other classes however, the early Green guises were much more elaborate on the D7000s, featuring a Brunswick and light green body, medium grey roof, white window surrounds and on later iterations, yellow warning panels. Although never renumbered, the D7000 fleet was reclassified under TOPS as the BR Class 35, and they were nicknamed the 'Hymek'.
Between 1958 and 1964, a total of 38 locomotives were built for express passenger services on BR's Western Region, numbered in the series of D800 to D832 and from D866 to D870. These were allocated to Old Oak Common, Newton Abbot, Plymouth Laira and Bristol Bath Road, from where they headed trains such as the Cornish Riviera Express and the Bristolian. Unlike the D7000, the locomotives featured two Maybach MD650 engines providing a combined output up to 2270hp, so despite the similar top speed of 90mph, the 'Warship' Class 42 (as they would later be known) could haul significantly heavier loads.
Again, these locomotives started life in BR Green, although not as vibrant as the D7000's variation, however the Western Region soon turned controversial as they adopted maroon as their new standard colour and applied it to the Class 42. By 1966, BR Blue started to appear on the fleet. Whereas the D7000s were not named, each Class 42 was, and all but two were named after Royal Navy vessels, and the fleet was known as the 'Warship' diesels. As locomotives were re-liveried post-1968, the 'D' prefix was dropped from the number, and despite being reclassified as BR Class 42 under TOPS, this was not reflected in reality.
Between 1961 and 1964, a total of 74 'D1000' series locomotives were constructed to relieve the D800s of the Western Region top-link expresses, for which they were underpowered. When new, the D1000s were allocated to Old Oak Common, Plymouth Laira, Bristol Bath Road, Cardiff Canton and Landore, however as Class 50s, and later the HST took their place, they were all based at Laira. Much like the D800s, the D1000s were fitted with two engines, but the Maybach MD655 was utilised, and a pair of them could produce a staggering 2700hp.
The D1000s were also subject to the likes of BR Maroon and BR Blue, however they were also seen in more unique liveries such as BR Desert Sand a trial in testing for a new standard colour for locomotives of BR. Interestingly, there has been debate over what type of blue was used on some D1000s; early reports stated a 'chromatic blue' was used, giving the locos a metallic sheen. Some enthusiasts accept that this is merely an early camera anomaly, and that no such blue was ever implemented. Every D1000 locomotive was named 'Western…' and a single word such as 'Champion', and so they were known as the 'Western' class. Under TOPS, the D1000s became the BR Class 52, but were never renumbered as such before withdrawal.
For Train Simulator, the Western Hydraulic Pack brings the Hymeks, Warships (Class 42 only) and Westerns to life, as they were in operational service. Additionally, multiple liveries are present, and so are nameplates, a lot of nameplates!

-GWR Large Prairies

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Victory Works/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 12 октября 2017 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- In general, a 'Prairie' steam locomotive is any that sits upon a 2-6-2 wheel arrangement, and
particularly in tank locomotive form proved a very popular design worldwide. On British soil,
the Southern Railway would be the only example of the 'Big Four' to not produce Prairie
locomotives in its lifetime.
The Great Western Railway however would dote on their 2-6-2T 'tank' locomotives for
secondary and more rural duties. Some of the earliest examples were rather light, and were
suitably called the 'Small Prairies'; however, larger variants would also be produced, primarily
for suburban commuter operations but initially for general use too. First appearing in 1903,
these are the 'Large Prairies'.
The first of many Large Prairies appeared in 1903 as GWR No. 99, a prototype design from
Churchward that would become the basis for a production fleet of 39 '3100 Class' tank
locomotives. At heart, the 3100 Class was a mixed-traffic locomotive, and would be the start
of a 'workhorse' fleet for GWR and be found across the network throughout their lifetimes.
Differences between the prototype and production 3100s were next to none, only the tank
shape was altered to improve visibility. Naturally, changes were implemented over time to
improve the class, including altered weight distribution and a larger coal bunker; these
changes warranted a fleet-wide reclassification, and so was introduced the 5100 Class, as
most would now stay until withdrawal.
A handful of 5100 Class locomotives received further modifications in the late 1930s and
were once again given new numbers. This move took place to bolster another fleet of Large
Prairies, a fleet which was introduced earlier in the decade and itself derived from yet another
production batch.
In the late 1920s, Churchward's successor, Collett, sought to update the original 3100 Class
design and have a large fleet built to fulfil local, suburban passenger roles. In fact, it was
Collett's development that resulted in the 3100 Class becoming the 5100 Class, all while a
new batch of 5101 Class locomotives were produced to the same standard. Whereas only 40
of the original were built, Swindon Works would deliver 140 members of 5101 Class between
1929 and 1949.
Together, the 5100s and 5101s dominated traffic in all corners of the Great Western network,
quickly growing and becoming a regular sight on all kinds of trains right up the end of the
Second World War. Post-conflict, a rise in road usage and the introduction of diesel traction
took its toll on the Large Prairies' duties, seeing them take on new life as mainline support
engines; providing backup as pilots and bankers on the more troublesome sections of the
GWR such as the South Devon Banks, or the Severn Tunnel.
While prolific, the Large Prairies still only represent a portion of the entire fleet. A further 70
locomotives are still to be accounted for. These come in the form of the 6100 Class, another
of Collett's finest and built specifically for commuter services out of London Paddington.
The 'Networkers' of their day, the 6100 Class was introduced in 1931 as a development of
the 5101, and was based at Old Oak Common, Slough, Reading, and elsewhere. Being
prominent in the passenger scene, enthusiasts quickly took to the class and nicknamed them
'Tanner One-ers', a call to their 61xx numbering and some currency of the day, a sixpence and
a penny.
Much like the other Large Prairies' story, a future of diesel forced the 6100s into other
positions, but not before the fleet was joined by a previously mentioned extra batch of
locomotives; may the 5100 Class re-enter centre stage.
It was the 6100 fleet that was reinforced by a modified micro fleet of 5100s; the latter was
rebuilt with smaller driving and pony truck wheels, and received a boiler pressure increase (a
common Large Prairie modification). 10 rebuilt 5100 Class locomotives were renumbered into
the 8100 Class, and were destined to work alongside the 6100s, supposedly providing extra
acceleration characteristics owing to their smaller wheels.
All GWR Large Prairie locomotives survived until the end of steam, by which point many of
them were still in good shape, despite the oldest examples working beyond their 6th decade.
Unfortunately, very few avoided the cutters' torch after the steam-era's final chapter. None of
the 5100 or 8100 made it into the epilogue, it was a spot only reserved for 10 5101s and a
lone 6100. Even then, only 4 out of the 11 are operational. Well, technically 5 see heritage
service, but one was rebuilt into a 4300 Class tender locomotive. The rest are awaiting
overhaul, apart from 6106 which is on static display at Didcot.

-GWR 1000 Class 'County Class'

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Victory Works/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 15 июня 2018 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- The standard GWR 4-6-0 locomotive design dated back to the turn of the 20th Century,
when George Jackson Churchward revolutionised the way Great Western traction was to be
built with his Saint Class, from which Charles Collett developed the Castles, Halls, Granges,
and Kings to name a few.
When Frederick Hawksworth came to be Chief Mechanical Engineer of the GWR, he designed
the likes of the Modified Halls, but aspired to build a 4-6-2 Pacific locomotive for post-war
passenger use. Unfortunately, the struggle of the Second World War did not permit this, and
by the end there was no demand for new passenger traction.
Instead, Hawksworth was granted the production of more mixed-traffic 4-6-0s, and so many
of the ideals for the Pacific were worked into this new batch which became a testbed of sorts.
The boiler was of differing design – Swindon Works had been used during the War to build
LMS 8F locomotives, and Hawksworth studied the 8F's boiler tooling for inspiration with the
new fleet.
In all, a total of 30 new locomotives were built in two batches between 1945 and 1947, and
were named as the 'County' Class, a call-back to a previous class of the same name. Each
were adorned with a nameplate stating a County of England or Wales that was served by the
GWR network. The locomotives were numbered from 1000 to 1029 and were given a power
rating of 'D', GWR's equivalent of '6MT' (mixed-traffic).
Something of an oddball among typical GWR traction, the County Class was quite distinctive
from its predecessors despite being based off a near-identical, standardised platform. Wheel
splashers, and nameplates, were continuous along the body side as opposed to tapered with
the wheels on previous locos. Multiple County locomotives were fitted with double chimneys,
and when built had a staggering boiler pressure of 280psi, this made them more powerful
than the four-cylindered Castles!
However, their incredible power put infrastructure at great risk, and to preserve the track, the
boiler pressure was lowered, leaving the County Class in a state of bewilderment as it had
little place - brand new but unable to compete. Despite this and their subsequent chequered
reputation of being unnecessary, they were received well by others willing to see the
successes of the class.
Throughout their lives, the power struggle did hinder the Counties but not entirely, they could
work express passenger services from London Paddington to Penzance, in tandem with the
Castles; and being mixed-traffic could also work freight across the main line GWR network,
where their heavy weight was permitted.
The Counties worked continuously until September 1962, from then the class was gradually
withdrawn with the final leaving service in November 1964. What would be the final
development of GWR's 4-6-0 family served for only 17 years at most, and sadly none
survived into preservation. However, the Didcot Railway Centre are striving to build a replica
of 1014 County of Glamorgan using other donor locomotives.
And it could be said that all the class will see the light of day once again, as through the fine
efforts of Victory Works, the GWR County Class is now yours to own in Train Simulator!
