Hop aboard Microsoft Train Simulator as this expansion takes you from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead on the picturesque preserved steam line of the West Somerset Railway in the southwest of England. The popularity of this line continues to increase since it was rescued from oblivion in 1976 and restored to working order for travellers to enjoy once more.

The line is single track with passing places at Crowcombe Heathfield, Williton and Blue Anchor. With accurate scenery, four driveable locomotives ( types) as well as authentic rolling stock, this route will make you pine for a holiday in Somerset! As with previous Just Trains releases, West Somerset Railway has been developed with the full blessing of the local railway and preserved rolling stock operators and is endorsed by the prestigious National Railway Museum.

With Just Trains' and Railwaves' latest creation you have the opportunity to work to the actual operating timetable, pulling a rake of coaches up the notorious Washford Bank incline or coasting down to the coast at Watchet. Beware though - the maximum operating speed is 25 mph, so the one-hour journey will give you plenty of opportunity not only to control the engine, but also to view the Quantock Hills, the Bristol Channel, Dunster Castle and the miles of glorious Somerset countryside in between!

Tom Williams from Railwaves says of his love of the West Somerset Railway, “Modelling the UK's longest preserved railway has been both challenging and a great deal of fun. In the course of the project we walked more than 23 miles along the tracks, in all weathers and at all times of year, in an effort to truly capture the spirit of the WSR. After demonstrating the route to operating staff, and seeing them instantly pinpoint their location along the line simply by glancing at the screen, we feel we have achieved this. I hope you have as much fun driving the route as we did developing it!

Customer Reviews
FLIGHT REPLICAS - MESSERSCHMITT 262A-1A AND 262B TRAINER
TS Brady
This Me-262 is really well modelled and flies beautifully, almost gracefully. And it is fast! The interior is nicely done and both cockpits are modelled in the dual-cockpit version, although you will have to manually add a view for the front seat. My biggest disappointment with this model and reason for only 4 stars is the engine sound, which is very soft, both inside the cockpit and outside. The developer for this model is fantastic and has gone to great lengths to convince me that the Me-262 engines were quite soft in reality, they even had access to an ex-WWII pilot. But perhaps this is realism taken a step too far, as I feel disconnected from the plane without more sound feedback - I’m flying it, but I’m not “feeling” it.
FLIGHT REPLICAS - CURTISS P-40N WARHAWK / KITTYHAWK IV LATER VERSIONS FOR FSX
TS Brady
This is a really good looking model, with exquisite detail both inside the cockpit and the outside of the plane. The flight model feels very authentic as well. Why only 4 stars then? Well, there is something wrong with the sound. The engine sound or pitch only increases up to the throttle halway mark and then it stays the same. You can see the rpm and temperatures etc changing, but the engine sound stays flat for the entire top half of the throttle movement. This is very unconvincing and really spoils my enjoyment of this beautiful plane.
SIMFLIGHT3D - CLASSIC TRAINER BUNDLE '58 C172 & '47 C140 FSX
TS Brady
The C140 is a wonderful little vintage plane. It looks the part and feels the part, even the pilot looks good. The cockpit textures are perhaps not quite as sharp and crisp as some of the newer offerings but that just adds to the vintage feeling and takes nothing away from the enjoyment of this aircraft. Everything functions perfectly and there are some really nice touches, such as the landing light slowly popping out from under the wing, the window crank arm folding and unfolding, the radio button on the yoke activating comms, the reflections on the inside of the cockpit windows and the old (clickable) map lying on the leather seats. This is one of the forefathers of the iconic C172 and it is such a privilege and joy to be able to fly it. I have not tried the C172, but the C140 alone is worth it and you get a free vintage C172 as a bonus.
AEROSOFT - KILIMANJARO AIRPORT 2015 FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Alexandre Gabriel Gomes SILVA
Cenário bonito e levíssimo, o Fotoreal do Monte está bem feito. Faltou iluminação noturna nas pistas e no aeroporto e não tem efeitos de solo molhado. Pelo preço barato até que vale a pena, mas é um pecado um cenário novo faltar iluminação noturna. Por favor lançarem um upgrade para isso.
A2A SIMULATIONS - COMANCHE 250 P3D ACADEMIC
Brad Townsend
While I did not purchase this from SimMarket (I bought from a competitor) I had to leave a review. This is the absolute best GA plane in existence and is a joy to fly. I put this up there with the Majestic Q400, if not better for flight dynamics. For all the PMDG enthusiasts this is also on par if not better than ANY PMDG product I have ever owned (NGX and 777). When the 3D gauges start to shake because your mixture and RPM setting is not correct that just showed me how much detail this baby really has. I am absolutely shocked this plane does not cost twice as much as it does. This is a MUST own even if you do not like flying GA's. Every hangar should have some low VFR aircraft especially if you have Orbx or other scenery packs. This is that GA.
AEROSOFT - AIRBUS A318/A319 FSX P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Tyler Choo
An amazing simulator for those who want a realistic aircraft, but not so realistic to the extent of products like PMDG. This aircraft is good for getting the hang of what flying an aircraft is really like, without too much to take care of as one person, because aircraft are usually handled by 2 people.
TAKEFLIGHT INTERACTIVE - AIR ALASKA FSX P3D
Clay Tobias
What a pleasant surprise from some ex-Aces developers for bush pilots running Prepar3D 2.5 or FSX. You are based northeast of Anchorage at Birchwood airport in Chugiac, Alaska. Initially, your stick and rudder skills will be put to the test with a lawn mower engine and sticky, fat tundra tires... and later in a Beech Baron twin. If you have the A2A Piper Cub it fits in seamlessly and if you don't the default cub is used. Works with FTX Southern Alaska or Global/Vector or UTX/GEX or default. The-
re are some rough edges hear and there but the developers have an open, friendly and responsive forum and are actively fixing whatever bugs and nits that get discovered by the intrepid few. Though the missions tend to be short they're well worth the $15. I look forward to more from Takeflight soon.
TAXI2GATE - SEATTLE-TACOMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KSEA FSX P3D P3DV2
Kevin Collins
Taxi2Gate has really impressed me with this scenery. Extremely well-done KSEA and a performance marvel. Keep it up guys, you're now competing with the best of them!
TAXI2GATE - SEATTLE-TACOMA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KSEA FSX P3D P3DV2
GW Kranenbarg
T2G becomes more and more my favorite scenery developer. They have done again a great job with KSEA. Very detailed scenery, still very performance and VAS friendly. Terminal interiors are also very well done with superb reflections on the windows.
TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D BELARUS LITHUANIA ESTONIA LATVIA
Aleksey Kochi
