Train Simulator 2013 brings to Steam a new standalone route for train enthusiasts to enjoy. London-Faversham High Speed brings together the exhilaration of high speed trains with the more serene â€˜classicâ€™ third rail lines of Kent all in one route, complete with the streamlined Southeastern Class 395.
Departing London St Pancras, the route for Train Simulator passes under the City with Class 395s reaching speeds of 140mph before stopping at Stratford International on the edge of the London 2012 Olympic Park. Speeding through the Essex countryside and under the River Thames, high speed services stop at Ebbsfleet International Station, where power switches from overhead electrification to third rail pick-up. From here, Class 395s cross onto the â€˜classicâ€™ Kent lines, pausing at stations including Gravesend, Rochester and Sittingbourne, before terminating at Faversham.
London-Faversham High Speed is an accurate depiction of a fantastic modern image UK route with stunning scenery through the Kent countryside. It features accurate depictions of London St Pancras Station, Ebbsfleet International Station, Rochester Castle and Cathedral, and the QEII Bridge at Dartford, and many hours of enjoyable and challenging driving.
