Newcastle to York - Modern includes a completely reworked track layout, overhead power masts and cables, revised speed limits, updated signalling, and the appropriate modernisation of the scenery along the entire route.
Each of the stations have remodelled track layouts to incorporate up to date platform allocations, and are brought to life with the inclusion of station furniture and general clutter such as wheelie bins and luggage trolleys, bringing an immersive atmosphere to the route both from the drivers eye view and from the line side.
All new scenario opportunities are also introduced thanks to the modernisation of the route, including the postal depot at Low Fell, extension of the line to Darlington North Road, fully rationalised freight yard trackwork, and bi-directional operation of the line allowing for broken down trains or engineering work to be passed on the adjacent running lines.
Five top-quality repaints are also included.

- 1.7 GHz+ PC

- 512Mb RAM (1Gb for Vista/Windows 7)
- 128Mb 3D graphics card
