'The Kyle Line', as it is sometimes known, is one of Britain’s greatest railway journeys. The line runs from Dingwall to Kyle of Lochalsh on the west coast of Scotland, but most passengers tend to start their journey at Inverness.

This Just Trains route runs for 83 miles and includes 17 finely modelled stations, eight localised reskins for the default Class 37 which have been enhanced with realistic dynamics, 14 Standard and two Free Roam scenarios, and numerous custom buildings and objects.

Inverness is the capital of the Highlands, located 158 miles north of Edinburgh and 561 miles from London, but still well over 100 miles away from John O'Groats at the very northern tip of Scotland!

From bustling Inverness with its impressive station and Train Maintenance Depot (TMD) with automatically operating roller shutter doors, we head west and proceed over the Caledonian Canal via its unique swing bridge - see the bridge swing closed as you approach it to allow you to cross.

From them on you are driving beside various lochs, through farmland, dense forests, alongside craggy steep rock faces and over numerous streams. Along the way you will see 17 stations, including the one with the shortest platform in the UK!

As you get further in your journey the land starts to open up and you really do feel the expanse and remoteness of the Highlands. Not far from Kyle you will pass under the unique snow shelter covering the line near Attadale before arriving at the end of the line at Kyle of Lochalsh station.

Driving the route is a real pleasure and a memorable experience!

Note: Additional stock (not supplied) is required to enable all the scenarios to be operated. Please see the Scenario details and System Requirements sections below for details.

JT 37 Blue 017 - BR Blue Class 37 with white stripe along the lower body side, a marking of Eastfield TMD in Glasgow at the time.

JT 37 Blue 033 - Class 37 in BR Blue with a small BR logo and large number, also carrying a ‘Highland Rail’ decal on the side of the cab.

JT 37 LL 025 - Inverness Depot's most famous locomotive and their ‘pet engine’ for many years. 37025 'Inverness TMD', Large Logo Blue with Highland Rail decals.

JT 37 LL 011 - Class 37 in Large Logo Blue with a West Highland Terrier on the side – a type of livery more commonly seen on locomotives operating via the West Highland Line to Fort William and a marking of Eastfield TMD, Glasgow.

JT 37 LL 114 - Class 37 in Large Logo Blue with Highland Rail decal on cab side. The Highland Rail ‘Stag’ loco was a marking of the Inverness TMD during the 1980s. The name 'Dunrobin Castle' comes from a large castle adjacent to the Far North Line between Brora and Rogart.

Danish
MSk has great scenery addons for fsx. overall great scenery you get what you pay for. Definitely can improve in some areas like night lighting at the terminal, runway textures and upgrade the jetways from static to moving.

Good modelling, VDGS as well as good performance are strong points of this scenery, unfortunately there are several issues that lower the quality to a point where I just don't think it's a good hub airport scenery: Som-
e issues that are important for a large hub airport: - Complete absence of accurate airline gate assignments and wingspan size for parking spots. AI Airlines and aircraft types park in places where they never do on the real airport. - There is no custom, Heathrow-specif-
ic animated ground vehicle traffic anywhere on the aprons or service roads. - Gross errors in jetway placement: Most jetways lack a realistic looking attachment to the walls. Some of the jetways are not even touching the walls at all, it's especially bad at Terminal 4. And many jetways therefore do not attach to AI aircraft. Strange negligence in quality control for something labelled as "accurate jetway placement" in the features list. It's issues like these that prevent the scenery from delivering a true Heathrow flair. There are further items amiss where the competition has done better: - A few service road tunnel ramps have been modelled while most are represented by flat, non-descending roads only. This is very much noticeable where such tunnels are located next to taxiways. - Some terminal buildings feature interior modelling that is plenty good for such a large hub, great job there. However, on those buildings that do not have such 3D interiors, only low-resolution night lighting textures are present. Unfortunately many daytime building textures are of low resolution as well, and a bit sterile in places, which do get noticed around the parking spots. - In some areas crisp apron ground textures are bordered by very crude low res aerial imagery devoid of any 3D structures, which are again very much noticeable if located right next to taxiways or parking spots. - While it is admirable to see high-res textures on all cars in the parking lots, the LOD for that texture is set so close as to pop up right in front of the aircraft, making the approach to runways 27R/L rather painful. Fewer cars with better LOD texture properties would have been preferable here. - The maintenance area is odd looking with hangars fully open and empty, looking more like huge shelters instead of aircraft hangars. I don't need an endless amount of detail, but here the maintenance area is a true ghost town. So while I see some good effort by ini such as VDGS and good care in placing taxiway signs or lights, the overall quality is not that good I'm afraid, in texture quality, features and accuracy. The lack of accurate airline/wingspa-
n specifications is especially painful in such a place, and there are many competitors that feature custom animated ground service vehicles as standard, both very important items at a hub airport.

It's cool to land Boeings and Airbuses on CATIII autoland, but this plane is much more fun and challenge to fly it! Get yourself a VOR/NDB only flight plan, disable FMC and you won't get bored during the flight. The manual itself is not as big and detailed like on those study level airplanes, but I still needed to study it and get some takeoff/landing training before I could fly this airplane. So it is kind of a study level machine. This is not my first Just Flight plane, I am getting more happy with each new one, so can't wait for them to release Fokker! My conclusion is, that everyone who is passionate about retro aviation, should get this plane, to feel what it was like, to fly a classic jet, as it feels great!

One of my favorite bush trips was the Florida trip from the FSAcademy Voyager. This addon makes the trip along the keys even better. It now make the trip so much more immersive. Recommended buy if you spend anytime in the keys area.

very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)

It lacks details and it's not like you can see much of it in real life, it could improve in those aspects
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
David
Bought this for the XP11 SR22 and it was the best GA sound pack I've ever heard. Whilst the MSFS version is not quite as articulate or wide ranging in sounds as the XP11 version, it's still an absolute must have, if you enjoy the SR22 in MSFS, and so much better than the stock sounds. I wish they had got things like the AC / fan sounds working with the MSFS version, as they did with the XP11 version.

Die Bodenstruckture-
n könnten tatsächlich realistischer sein und einige Beschriftungen fehlen auch an den Airport Gebäuden. Ansonsten sehr gute detallierte Umsetzung mit fast liebevollen Details.Man sollte mal z.B. mit einem Follow me Car die Scenerie abfahren. Framerate sehr gut auf meinem PC System, auch die Seaplane Base ist gut nachgebildet.Kl-
eines Update durch S Design wäre gut
