Just Trains is proud to bring you an authentic reproduction of the West Somerset Railway for you to drive on your PC.

The West Somerset Railway, the epitome of a preserved country branch line railway harking back to bygone days, is the longest 'heritage' line in England, with trains running 20 miles between Bishops Lydeard station (four miles from Taunton) and Minehead, via the Quantock Hills and along the Bristol Channel coast. The line is still connected to the national rail network on the Great Western Line at the southern end.

This Fantastic West Somerset Railway add-on for Train Simulator in fact represents the line some time in 2015, following the introduction of a new siding at Norton Fitzwarren and also the southern extension of the passing loop at Williton Station. The line is almost entirely accurately signalled, and has been accurately modelled with numerous custom objects, buildings and signals to show the splendour of the West Somerset Railway in digital form.

The route includes 14 Standard Scenarios - please note that additional stock (not supplied) is required to enable all the scenarios to be operated.

Important! Please note that The Fantastic West Somerset Railway is compatible with Train Simulator 2015. If you purchased Train Simulator after 20th September 2012 then you will require the European Loco & Asset Pack (available to purchase via Steam) for the route to display correctly.

The West Somerset Railway logo and name are used with the kind permission of the West Somerset Railway PLC.

RKBRIDGER - PITTSBURGH BRIDGES MSFS
Al
Born and raised in Pittsburgh (the Burgh) I am not totally happy. What bridges that were done, are very good. However, they are ONLY river bridges and ONLY in the immediate city area. There are 9 on the Mon (Monongahela) but stop at the railroad bridge before the Homestead Grays bridge. Up the Allegheny from the point there are 10 bridges but they stop at the 40th St (Washington Crossing) bridge excluding the Rt 8 / 62 St (Sen Fleming) bridge and north. Down the Ohio was my biggest disappointment for the river bridges. Included from the point are the West End, Brunot Island railroad bridges and the McKees Rocks bridge. Neville Island and south, forget it. Off river bridges are not included. That includes the Jacks Run (Rt 65) bridge that parallels the Ohio River a half mile south of the McKees Rocks bridge. Panther Hollow (Oakland District) has two major bridges near Univ of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Library & Museum, Carnegie Mellon Univ., Phipps Conservatory, and Schenley Park, known to almost everyone from the Burgh, Schenley Drive (near the old Forbes Field) and Panther Hollow Rd in Schenley Park. Neither are included. Additional work needs to be done on cleaning up flying cars higher than the bridge surface and cars crossing the rivers at water level under the presented bridges. Having done scenery myself, I understand that this is not easy, but can and should be done. Person-
ally this product should be renamed 'City of Pittsburgh RIVER Bridges' as there are far too many exclusions for the current title. I have mentioned only a few.

Love this thing to bits, great model, flies nicely! Just had some pink texture issues on the no-spray variants for some reason, only real issue I have noticed. Only visible from the outside.
LATINVFR - AIRPORT JETWAY PRO MSFS
Brennan
It looks and runs fantastically, the only problem being it is really unrealistic for any north american airports. If possible I would love if you could create a detailed steel model as opposed to glass because glass jetways are actually illegal in the US, or were until just a few months ago, so they really don't exist in NA.

I've been there in March 2019 and it is completely accurate. Great work!

Hans-Joerg
What can I say? A work of art! Absolutely amazing attention to detail - they not only created the airport in painstaking detail, but also included many of the landmarks in the area. My respecet to the makers of this beautiful piece of software! If only all MSFS airports were as well made as this…
