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.

TROPICALSIM-2 - SÃO JORGE LPSJ 2019 FSX P3D
nassim
Nice scenery with a lot of details they have made a lot of efforts, keep up the good work!
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
Buyer Beware this scenery has problems and the developer states there is "No Fix" on their end for this. The color of the land class is very washed out and the ground, (land class) loads as you fly directly in front of your plane; it is very annoying and looks and performs bad. How he is allowed to continue to sale this is beyond me!
ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH PRO FSX P3D
David
Outstanding on all counts! The detail and physical characteristics are top notch. If you own just one classic biplane type make this one a top candidate. No, it’s not fast but it’s nimble and still capable of some aerobatics as long as you keep your load as low as possible. The “complete auto start” goes through all of the start up procedure pieces in detail. You could change that to a quick start (cntl E) or just set it to force a full manual start up. This plane has many little tidbits and added details from voice changes, to wear and tear tracking. Eventually your plane will need maintenance (if enabled) and yo7 will need to complete those maintenance tasks or suffer problems or failures. You get a lot more than bargained for here. Runs great with medium hi graphics settings at full realism on my 512 integrated graphics, Steam edition, even with intense weather settings while flying in add on scenery. Great for sight seeing VFR conditions

Muy buen escenario lástima que falten los edificios de la zona militar, reemplazados por unas vallas. Very good pity that the buildings of the military zone are missing, replaced by fences.

A very good product. Works nicely, as advertised, with Vpilot. Reasonable price. One advice - to develop more detailed, step by step, written instructions of how to set it up. Overall- 5 star product

AUSCENE 2 - ADELAIDE INTERNATIONAL X V2.1 FSX P3D
Lee
This is a review of AUSCENE 2 - Adelaide International version 2.1 for FSX/P3D. Test system - ChillBlast Intel i9-9900k CPU overclocked, 32GB System RAM, 1TB Samsung Evo SSD, GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11GB Video, Windows 10 64-bit Home. This scenery was installed into Lockheed Martin's Prepar3Dv4.5 Hot Fix 3 (HF3) Pro license. Please note that this new version of Adelaide is NOT an upgrade, in the sense that you just install right over the top of an existing ASCENE version; The original version, if you have it, should be removed as the newer version 2.1 is a new FULL install. Unfortunately, the product for me scores lower for a lack of instructions concerning the install. The file size download was something I found confusing to begin with as the original version of AUscene Adelaide was 495MB, whereas the newer version 2.1 is smaller at 247MB! Usually I would expect an "improved" version or upgrade to an existing scenery to be a larger download. However, the scenery is fine. It is not Orbx quality, but it is very acceptable. For those users who have Orbx Global Base, Vector and Australia v2 installed, I can confirm that this product is compatible and works very well with the Orbx products installed. However, the layering is critical, I have found. Normally, Airport sceneries are layered ABOVE all base products such as Default Terrain, Default Scenery and the Base files. But in this case, I found that normal layering results in a huge loss of objects and the rise of default buildings and structures! Layering this scenery BETWEEN the Orbx Base products and Orbx Australia gives the same result. But by placing this scenery BELOW the Orbx products, but ABOVE the Default Base files as usual, it works. Most noticeable is the fact that the missing trees come back, as does a large part of the coastal infrastructure, west of the runway 5 threshold, all missing and flat looking if the scenery is not layered correctly. Your results may vary, but this is a pleasing scenery that works and to be honest, really enhances this little corner of Australia - and an airport that has been crying out to be developed for your Simulator! After I managed to install this correctly, I found that the quality is good with many nice touches. To read more on this, visit my blog - virtualairlinep-

ROUTEANN-STUDIO - ZSOF HEFEI XINQIAO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3DV5/P3DV4.4+
Zicheng
This is amazing level of detail without any compromise of FPS. The terminal building looks pictorial and the 3D internal modeling pushes the realism into the next level in P3Dv5. Simply one of the best airport addons ever made.
AEROSOFT - SIM-WINGS PRO MUNICH P3D
Bradley
Maybe ill timed in some eyes but i must say this is a gorgeous rendition of Munich which outweighs T2Gs version. There are obvious attentions to detail here that T2G continue to ignore or miss out in their work and as often as i have brought T2G work i have always been ready to replace their scenerys with those from Simwings for example in this instance. The housekeeping of the installation here is excellent, updates are easy and clean and its just an overall better package. Simwings will be bringing us Hamburg in August too and you can bet your dollar it will be a touch better than JustSims version and updates will come free!!!
