This South Western Expressways - Reading route add-on is around 220 miles in length and features the Great Western Main Line (Chippenham to Bristol section), Bristol to Exeter, Reading to Taunton, Westbury to Bristol via Bath Spa and Westbury to Chippenham lines.

The route features 39 stations and numerous custom assets along with a set of 19 Standard scenarios and 4 Free Roam scenarios.

  • Based in 2010
  • Beautifully detailed and immersive scenery of the South West
  • 39 custom-built stations
  • Includes 19 Standard scenarios and 4 Free Roam scenarios
  • Custom-built prominent buildings and objects
South Western Expressways - Reading builds on the original set of routes in Just Trains' earlier South Western Expressways add-on which ended at Pewsey station. This new release adds the 39-mile section to Reading station and runs west from Reading in the east to Bristol via Westbury and south-west down to Exeter. Having Reading station now means you can drive the classic route of Reading-Westbury-Exeter without having to go via Bristol.

Alongside brand-new stations, existing stations have been updated and we have laid new track and updated the signalling and lineside scenery. The route comes with over 200 brand-new custom objects and is Quick Drive compatible.

You can take a look at the Route Guide here!

Important! If you purchased Train Simulator after 20 September 2012, you will require the European Loco & Asset Pack and the US Loco & Asset Pack (both available to purchase via Steam) for the route to display correctly.

Note: Additional stock (not supplied) is required for some of the scenarios to function correctly. Please see the scenario details in the Detailed Description below for more details.
