East Coast Express (Part One) London to Peterborough, developed by well-respected team EuropeanBahn, gives you the opportunity to drive a selection of contemporary electric locomotives on one of the UK’s busiest railway lines.

The route covered by this simulation runs from London, Kings Cross to Peterborough, a distance of 80 miles.
With this simulation you may travel north, through the suburbs of London and on to Peterborough, travelling through the countryside of Hertfordshire.

The journey from London to Peterborough will run through 24 stations such as Alexandra Palace, Potters Bar, Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage, Hitchin, Biggleswade, St Neots, and Huntingdon before arriving at Peterborough.

Featuring 23 stations along the eighty miles of track from London Kings Cross to Peterborough, rolling stock includes: the Class 91 locomotive in both the original Inter-City and the current G.N.E.R. midnight blue colour schemes. Also included are the Mk 4 BREL carriages and DVT in both liveries; the Class 43 High Speed Train in both the original Inter-City Swallow and G.N.E.R. colour schemes and including the carriages used from the running sets for both locomotives. Local services are provided by the Class 317 featuring the Network SouthEast 317 Class EMU.

Activities include: Driving a busy morning rush hour commuter service from Kings Cross to Welwyn Garden City and keeping to a tight deadline; taking a Class 43 HST from London to Peterborough on a sunny morning; driving a 317 on a stopping service from Peterborough to London Kings Cross.

East Coast Express (Part One) London to Peterborough includes fifteen easy, medium and difficult activities staged over a variety of seasons and conditions which will challenge everyone from beginners to the seasoned professional.

The route represented in this simulation has its origins deep in the history of the railway system in England and Scotland, stemming from the pre – grouping era with such companies as the Great Northern Railway , the North Eastern Railway .and the Great Central Railway. In this era there were in excess of 100 individual Companies operating railways in the UK, a situation that applied until the mid1920’s, when these were grouped in to the four main operating Companies, the London ,Midland and Scottish ( LMS ) , the London and North Eastern ( LNER ), the Great Western ( GWR ) and the Southern ( SR ) railways.
This was the heyday of the steam locomotive, with such examples as the LNER ‘ Mallard ‘, the holder of the World speed record for steam locomotives, the GWR ‘ Castles ‘ and ‘ Kings ‘, the LMS ‘ Coronation ‘ and ‘ Royal Scot ‘ and the Southern ‘ Schools ‘ and ‘ Battle of Britain ‘ classes.
With the advance of technology, and the adoption of electric traction by many countries, proposals were put forward for the electrification of a number of the main line routes in the UK. This simulation is concerned with that route previously operated by the LNER, later by British Rail and currently, after privatisation of the railways, by the Great North Eastern Railway (GNER).
This route covers the section of the GNER main line (The East Coast Mainline) between London and Peterborough, and is now fully electrified, using the 25kV system adopted in the UK.
This simulation has been prepared with the full assistance and approval of the GNER Company, and the authors wish to express their thanks to GNER for the help received.

TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D NORTH AMERICA BASE PACK
John
I purchased this hoping it would work with my ORBX scenery. On installing it I could see more major roads than before but the light globes were too large and made things look worse. Unfortunate. Also this is a base pack and when installed looks nothing like the images on the website. Those images must be with additional Taburet night lighting for a specific area.

Really nicely done! Departing Shoreham and flying over my home town of Seaford Felt like my flying lessons again, with clear audio guidance on what to do, feel I have picked a lot up from the way the lessons were taught. Was a little hesitant in purchasing as I cant do the default MSFS lessons now I have remapped my view keys, so I cant move past step one where they tell me to press a certain key to look to the left. I was worried this would be the same, but it was just how I hoped it would be and was much more concentrated on how to fly the procedures and not how to fly them in this sim. One thing that would be nice is if you could pop up the charts in the sim. I don't have Navigraph but was able to find the Manchester chart online to have on my iPad next to me so I didn't have to keep switching between windows, but with the Southampton charts I couldn't find online so I had to take a photo on my phone of the one provided. However that's me just nit picking as all headings and altitudes etc were all clearly read out before you did them. I look forward to seeing what other training addons they make and wouldn't hesitate to purchase. Easy 5 stars.

In my view the best airport addon for graphics so far. On the expensive side, but still really impressed with this work.

Not one for taking the bait usually with adverts but this is a must have for those that wish to do thinks correctly. This so far has joined the dots for me and my fragmented self taught knowledge. You really do feel you are having a real lesson whilst in the cockpit. Wel-
l done the team that has produced this great addon.

Good afternoon, I have had the opportunity to try this product, and I want to recommend it 100%. Physically the helicopter responds very well to the movements that we force on it, and continuously gives the feeling of realism. Graphically it is frame friendly. That does not mean that it is not well modeled, because it is designed down to the smallest detail. The price is very good and do not waste the opportunity to have this product in your simulator. A greeting.
