Dovetail Games has announced that the Northern Transpennine route between Manchester and Leeds is coming to Train Sim World.

The line between Manchester and Leeds dates back to 1849 when the Manchester, Stockport and Leeds Railway opened between Huddersfield and Stalybridge.

The line was built following the success of the Leeds – Liverpool canal, transported coal and materials between Yorkshire and Lancashire.

The railway saw over 1,000 passengers on its first day of operation. This number would only increase, and today, the line is one of the busiest in West Yorkshire.

The Northern Trans-Pennine route for Train Sim World will be set in 1983 and will feature the 43-mile route between Manchester Victoria and Leeds City. The route will be brought to life thanks to the BR Class 47, the BR Class 101, BR Class 45 ‘Peak’. For loco-hauled trains, the Mk2a TSO and FK coaches will feature, along with a Mk1 BG.

The Northern Pennines route for Train Sim World is coming soon!
