  • Passenger windows rain effect - see the rain on the windows in Passenger view
  • Detailed passenger cabin view - with Train Simulator lighting for that 'being there' feeling
  • Acceleration and braking physics based on real timings
  • Quick Drive capability


LIGHTING

  • Working external and internal door interlock lights

  • Realistic LED marker lights - with Train Simulator lighting effects

ADVANCED SCENARIOS

Drive the Voyager 220 and Tilting Super Voyager 221 on 10 challenging and interesting scenarios that employ our exclusive ActivWorld scenario technology on both default and add-on routes.


Scenarios for default Train Simulator routes

London to Brighton Route

Brighton Voyager Farewell
Drive the last ever Cross Country service from Brighton to Birmingham using XC's 220 021 on the 14:30 to Birmingham New Street.

Freezing February
A Voyager that became stranded at Three Bridges due to heavy snow is to be used to work the final train of the night to London Victoria. The usual unit wasn't available and this is expected to be the final service until the early morning.


Oxford to Paddington route

New Kid on the Block
Today you are in control of a brand new Class 220 Voyager delivered earlier this morning. A depot instructor will lead you through the start-up procedure and the various new controls in this unit. We will then go out onto the main line to do some testing between here and Reading.

Caught in the Cold
This morning you are in charge of one of Arriva Cross Country's Class 220s on the first train of the day from Reading to Manchester. This service normally starts at Southampton but due to the snow it is starting here at Reading today. The train is 1M18 06:11 Reading-Manchester Piccadilly. It's just coming up to 6 AM and we are running late so need to get the unit started and set up ASAP ready to head into Reading with the empty train. Once at Reading we will reverse and head for Oxford where a Manchester driver will take over. It's not all going to plan, however; the weather has caused problems for other services and many are running late so you can expect further delays en route to Oxford!


Cajon Pass route

Across the Pond
Drive a Voyager on a tourist trip over the Cajon Pass. The unit is only on here on hire to show what keeps Britain moving - but it has gained a special US livery!


Castle Rock Railroad route

Castle Rock Experience
Take the Voyager on an express service along the length of the Castle Rock Railroad - it's rather different to the usual train on this service!


Hagen-Siegen route

German Tourists
Take a party of German skiers on a hired Class 221 Voyager from Hagen to Siegen on a very wintry evening.


Seebergbahn route

On Test in Germany
On a stunning summer's morning you are assigned to your first day of training on board the British Class 220 Voyager unit.


Scenarios for add-on routes - all available from Just Trains

Totham route

Driver Training
It's September 2002 and you have just finished with Class 47s on XC services around Britain. Today is your first day back after a two-week break and it's all changed! Gone are the oily, unreliable 40-year-old Brush veterans and in their place brand new Bombardier Voyager units. Mark, your driver instructor, will take you through the start-up procedure before you head out onto the line for an introductory drive. We will also be testing a few of the fault systems today so keep on top of your game at all times!


Bristol to Exeter route

Summer Saturday Service
It's a summer Saturday and, as always, the holidaymakers are out in force for their annual holiday to Devon. These are the busiest days of the year here on the Bristol to Exeter line and today is no exception. You are in control of two five car Super Voyagers on a new service for the type. These units are currently replacing the Class 47s on the main services and will eventually see off the HSTs too! However, all is not well. One of our engines has failed and the guard in the second unit says that the temperatures on two of the other cars are not looking good. A Class 47 is also struggling on a southbound service and, to top it off, a Black Five is out on a rail tour to Plymouth! These days are sent to test us!

Easy Like a Sunday Morning
Today your job is easy (just like a Sunday morning, although it's Monday!). You need to get your Class 220 Voyager prepared for service at Barton Hill depot before working a stopping service down to Weston-Super-Mare and returning to Bristol Temple Meads. We are on hire to FGW today. The commuters are getting a change from their usual Class 150!


Newcastle to York Modern route

Rush hour express
Take charge of a XC Voyager on 1S49 11:25 Plymouth-Dundee on a glorious summer evening. You will be in charge from York to Newcastle. Enjoy the trip - you should have no problems today!


Free Roam scenarios

Free Roam scenarios are available for these routes:

  • Bristol to Exeter
  • Oxford to Paddington x 2
  • Newcastle to York Modern
  • Scottish East Coast Main Line x 2
  • Totham

"The cab has had a major renovation and is now totally controllable from within the virtual cab and matches that of the control system of the real world Voyager train... The sound for the Voyager has also been totally reworked, if not replaced for this add-on and it is now much more impressive than it was in its original release some years back... Most impressive is the movement of the train from both inside and out as the train gives the illusion of movement" Avsim.com
