Midland Main Line: Buxton and Peak Forest Extension

Compatibility: Train Simulator Classic
This extension to Just Trains' Midland Main Line route for Train Simulator Classic will add over 25 miles of new route, including some of the most rugged landscapes in England.

Featuring the steeply graded 17-mile passenger line from Hazel Grove to Buxton, this picturesque route also incorporates the complex network of freight lines around Buxton, including the quarries at Tunstead, Dowlow, Hindlow and Dove Holes.

This route includes the connection from Peak Forest to Chinley South Junction, meaning you can drive directly onto the Hope Valley Line.

We're happy to be able to bring you our next update for the Here's the next dev update for the Midland Main Line: Buxton and Peak Forest Extension.

This selection of screenshots show the latest where work has taken place. The images are of the new custom Chapel Milton Viaduct (replacing the original that was included with the Hope Valley) and the sections around Whaley Bridge Station, the former Chapel-En-Le-Frith Central Station, and Dove Holes Tunnel. These screenshots provide a look at both lines that will be included with the route, with Chapel Milton Viaducts, Chapel-En-Le-Frith Central and Dove Holes Tunnel on the "Freight Only" line to Buxton via Peak Forest as well as the passenger line which runs from Hazel Grove to Buxton via Whaley Bridge.

That's it for this update, we hope you enjoyed the new images.  More to follow soon.
