In association with Richard Fletcher, Alan Thomson Simulation has released seven detailed and engaging scenarios for the GOLD STAR TRAINS Plasser & Theurer 09 Series Ballast Tamper Pack.
When we think of railways, we often picture fast express trains speeding from city to city, packed commuter trains delivering workers to and from their workplace, or heavy freight trains hauled by powerful locomotives delivering trainloads of cargo from ports to centres of industry.
But railways are so much more than just the trains that run on them. They rely on a vast system of lines and infrastructure that allows them to run, and indeed to keep running. That is something that is often overlooked and taken for granted.
For a long time, Train Simulator has been able to recreate part of this network, with engineering and infrastructure trains. However, the equipment that is needed to maintain the track is often neglected. These are the weird and complicated-looking machines that are often seen around the network. The Gold Star Trains’ Ballast Tamper enables this aspect of railway operations to be incorporated.
The Gold Star Trains Ballast Tamper scenario pack consists of seven standard scenarios and adds almost ten hours of driving time to the roster of this truly individual piece of TrainSim content.
Scenarios are spread over three routes, where players will be put through their paces in a number of settings by transferring the tamper to and from work locations and carrying out the actual tamping work.
All of the scenarios have been compiled using actual timetables and official documentation, that will provide players with an engaging and immersive experience.
The Ballast Tamper Scenario pack retails for £14.99 and the Ballast Tamper Scenario pack costs £6.99. Alan Thomson Simulation subscribers get a 10% discount.
