West Coast Main Line Over Shap-Разработчик/издатель: KrossRails/Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: английский | Год выпуска: 16 января 2014 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (лицензия и пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- The first section to open of what is now the West Coast Main Line was in 1837, connecting
Liverpool and Manchester to Birmingham, via Crewe, Stafford and Wolverhampton. Over
subsequent years, other branch lines along the East Coast opened, with the final sections of
what is now the WCML opening in the late 1800s.
The WCML competed fiercely with the rival East Coast Main Line, operated by the London and
North Eastern Railway, for London to Scotland traffic. Nicknamed the Race to the North by
British newspapers, attempts were often made to reduce journey times between London and
Glasgow, which saw the route host such famous locomotives as the Princess Coronation Class.
Modernisation by British Rail in 1955 saw the line upgraded and electrified in stages between
1959 and 1974. Full electrification of the line heralded the introduction of BR's InterCity
brand, drastically cutting journey times along the route. New style passenger coaches were
also introduced and many stations demolished and rebuilt to accommodate faster and longer
trains, paving the way for the West Coast Main Line that operates today.
West Coast Main Line Over Shap represents the 90 mile section from Skew Bridge Junction
(Preston) to Carlisle Upperby, and on to Dumfries via Gretna Junction, set in the BR blue
period of the 1970s.
An important interchange for services to and from Manchester, Bolton and Blackpool, Preston
is considered to be the approximate half way point between London and Scotland, therefore is
the point of crew changes on services running along the route.
On departure, the route run through the northern industrial and suburban areas of Preston,
passing the Church of St Walburge, a significant landmark in the city, and under the M55,
before entering open countryside. Crossing impressive viaducts and through high
embankments, the route passes through Lancaster, at which point the branch to Morecambe
Bay heads westwards and the WCML passes the coast at its closest point.
Brushing the edge of the Lake District, northbound trains are soon faced with the steep five
mile (8km), 1:75 incline from Tebay over Shap, a challenge still for heavy freight trains and
steam charters. The summit at Shap Quarry is 916ft above sea level and is the highest point
on the English section of the West Coast Main Line, and limestone and aggregate workings
are still aplenty on the hills around Shap.
The gentle run down to Carlisle follows the River Leith and past a number of old village
stations that have long since closed. Carlisle itself remains a major rail hub and interchange
for services coming off the Settle and Carlisle line, the Cumbrian Coast, the Tyne Valley and
the former Glasgow and South Western Railway route to Glasgow via Dumfries.
Impressive viaducts, lost stations and numerous branch lines are aplenty on this stunning
route, developed by Krossrails. Ministry of Defence facilities at Longtown, Smalmstown and
Eastriggs are also included on the route, alongside various depots and yards, the Morecambe
and Heysham branch lines, Maxwelltown Branch west of Dumfries, and a number of
prominent landmarks along the route. New to this route are also neutral sections between
power districts, replicating real-life situations, as well as accurate braking which is affected by
the length of the train.

-InterCity BR Class 370 'APT-P'

Подробное описание

Разработчик/издатель: Dovetail Games | Язык дополнения: немецкий, английский и французский | Год выпуска: 15 декабря 2017 | Совместимость: Train Simulator (только пиратка)-Если вам понравилось это дополнение, вы можете приобрести его в цифровом магазине Steam.- Grow your collection with an iconic piece of British Rail history: the infamous Advanced
Passenger Train Prototype. Securing its place in history as the first commercial passenger train
to feature tilting technology, it nonetheless suffered as the new features caused uproar and
contention. Experience a genuine turning point in train design and challenge yourself to
improve with this unique train and accompanying scenarios!
Built by BREL at Derby, for allocation at Glasgow and Crewe, the BR Class 370 'APT-P' was an
InterCity Development train uniquely designed to provide faster journey times on the West
Coast Main Line. The WCML was plagued with a multitude of twists and turns as railway
companies of old attempted to navigate the hilly landscape; and while trains could probably
take turns at higher speeds than they did, the passenger's comfort would be jeopardised.
The initial APT project had already procured the APT-E (Experimental) which could tilt, but ran
off of diesel turbines and was, much like previous turbine-driven locomotives, inefficient at
lower speeds. The next development if the project would be the prototypes, but continual
stalls in progress eventually called for the (not so) stop-gap, the High Speed Train.
Eventually, in 1979, the BR Class 370 'APT-P' was completed. The APT-P consisted of six rakes
and spare driving second & brake first vehicles, numbered 370001 – 370007. Each rake
would contain up to six articulated trailer vehicles and one non-driving motor vehicle, so that
each train set would comprise of two such rakes with the motor vehicles being situated in the
centre of the formation. These formations resulted in three almost identical sets of 12 to 14
vehicles in length.
Each centrally-positioned power car consisted of four traction motors, delivering upwards of
4,000hp per power car. With around 8,000hp propelling the APT-P in total, it earned the
accolade of the most powerful domestic passenger train in the UK and would undoubtedly be
able to reduce journey times, all it needed was a good tilting system.
Needless to say it was good, it was very good, and in fact it was too good – as claimed by
passengers and press. The active tilting system was so effective that you could not tell it was
tilting, but when looking out the window, feeling level-headed and seeing the countryside
bobbing up and down at the same time caused seasick-like discomfort. The ghost-tilt of the
APT would be one of many issues to come to light, and would not be rectified until later
models were released.
Due to the shoestring budget during engineering there were flaws in the manufacturing of the
power car bogies which resulted in poorly fitting brake equipment. This caused brakes to stick
to the wheel of the power cars causing them to overheat. There were also problems with
various lubricants used throughout the power cars which caused oil filter blockages.
Despite the technical troubles the APT-P was credited with a number of firsts. It was the first
passenger train to use self-contained septic tanks, and it housed a completely unique
hydrokinetic braking system which was very successful and worked incredibly well. The APT-P
was also the world's first commercial passenger train to use tilting technology. The APT-P
would offer a passenger relief service between London and Glasgow, three days a week,
between 1983 and 1985. However, it was forced into service during December and failed on
one of its first big outings, dealing more damage in the public eye.
Ultimately, after the technical problems and a lack political will to take the project forward,
the planned APT project would never be fully developed into the APT-S (Squadron) sets. The
APT-P powercar would instead influence the BR Class 89, the prototype to the BR Class 91
InterCity 225 of the East Coast Main Line, and the tilting technology would be sold to Fiat
who refined their Pendolino family and would eventually sell their train sets back in the form
of the BR Class 390 - the tilting, spiritual successor to the APT-P.
Today only a single, almost complete APT-P has survived into preservation and is housed at
the Crewe Heritage Railway Centre next to its old stomping grounds, the West Coast Main
Line. Despite drawing people from all over the world, APT-P has suffered and is all but a
shadow of her former self.
Entirely unique in every right and with a service speed of 125mph, a design speed of 155 and
a record speed of 162.2, the APT-P, while flawed, has its own place in railway history; continue
its tale yourself as we bring the much-loved BR Class 370 'APT-P' to Train Simulator!
