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!

BRIDGE - GUANGZHOU BAIYUN AIRPORT ZGGG FSX P3D
morten van der linden
This is realy a very beautifull art of work, I can highly recommand this scenery to everyone. It's very fps friendly, the textures and models are very good made quality, also there is internal modeling too!, You get all you need in this scenery. Only the jetways are static, but that's not a problem for me, maybe in the future they will also be AES supported, I know it for sure. Buy it!, you will surely not be dissapointed. -
And it´s worth the price!

This product is really amazing. The airport is very beautiful and detailed, and the FPS is friendly. For pilots who fly in and out of China, I highly recommend this scenery to all of you. This is the one you should have.

SCENERY STUDIO - LAMPEDUSA X FSX P3D
SIMONE SOFFIATO
Sulla scia di Treviso, ho comprato questo scenario. Gradevole la parte della città che rispetta i colori bianchi delle case e le posizioni corrette nel photoreal. Qualche pecca nel photoreal dell'isola nelle tiles a volte tagliate di netto facendo poca atenzione alla corretta maschera acqua. Deludente in alcuni punti nella parte più importante dell'aeroporto: la taxi dell'apron principale è tagliat aa metà quindi pe entrar in pista si fa un pezzo di erba. L'apron vecchio fa trasparire le linee di rullaggio del photoreal sottostante, le textures degli edifici da migliorare (sembrano datate quasi Fs9 e antecedenti). Prezzo cmq elevato per un aeroporto così minore e di così bassa precisione nei dettagli.

I can't vouch for the accuracy of the flight dynamics since I've never flown one in reality, but it is a pure joy to hand fly and handles really well at low speeds. The cockpit isn't overly complex (ie: PMDG, Majestic, et. al.), but many planes rarely are. My only criticism is the FMC could use a little work, but it all works well enough to enjoy the experience. If you're looking for a good, easy-to-fly business jet simulation- this is for you.

Really Amazing, Better than San Diego. Much better optimization. Large area around the airport is photo real, lots of off building airports provide better immersion. Airport looks great. High res textures look awesome. Great performance. FSX was always good, but with the 5 or 6 front running developers we have these days it truly is as real as it gets.

Knocked it out of the park T2G! Man, this is good. 27 FPS on full blast. I am extremely impressed! The interior with Anthony's and the chairs in side the terminal and detail is really impressive especially considering the frame rate. LTBA was good but this is even better. A+ effort. A+ product.
TAKEFLIGHT INTERACTIVE - AIR ALASKA FSX
Ernesto Bonet Peña
I think this mission pack is a work of love for Bush Flying and FSX missions which will make you feel you're there. In this addon you will fly a series of missions as a rookie Bush Pilot. In the first one you'll have to show your new employer that you are able to perform a short landing, for example. If you pass his test, you'll start flying missions on your own. What I really like about these missions is that they make you feel you're there. Your virtual passengers make comments related to the phase of flight and even what you are doing ate the moment (if you fly too high, or bank too much...) Your employer (in your test flight) gives you tips about how to properly taxi with tundra wheels, there's radio chatter in your company frequency, you'll receive new instructions in flight from your dispatcher, etc... It was a pleasant surprise finding out that there's an option for using your A2A J3 if you have it installed, which is great. If you don't have it, there are other options but I haven't tried them. In Take Flight forums there's been some talking about including different aircraft. I hope they make it. The package's scenery is nicely done but I haven't been able to make it show outside the missions. Anyway it is compatible with ORBX regions, which is really great because the scenery is absolutely beautiful. Another nice touch is that you don't need to start FSX in order to use these missions. There's an independent menu you can start from the desktop and which will load FSX and the correspondent missions directly without having to go through FSX's menus. That makes the process much faster if you have a whole load of sceneries and planes like me. I just wish there were more missions to fly in this package. And I'd also like to be able to enjoy the airports included in the missions as regular airports in my free flights. Perhaps there's a way to do it but I haven't been able to find it out yet. As a bottom line: if you like missions and bush flying don't look further. Just give Air Alaska a try. You'll feel like you're there and I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Pretty Good rendition of Seattle. I really enjoyed the realism on approach coupled with Megascenery Seattle
