Train Sim World Northern Trans-Pennine DLC arrived on consoles

Massive new Train Sim World DLC Northern Trans-Pennine is now available to download on PS4 and Xbox One.

In Northern Trans-Pennine, a bygone era of British Rail is brought back to life with towering moors, and tight curves.

The DLC will enable you to operate trains on an ageing railway network.

The aim is to recreate 1980s British railways, which they’ve certainly done. The theme holds a very dear place in my heart as I was obsessed with them and Thomas the Tank Engine in my youth.

Every detail has been reproduced faithfully, from stations to signals and mileposts. It’s stunning.

As always, you have to transport passengers and do some freighting across these classic railways using loco-hauled services which no longer exist today.

Just check out the trailer and feel the nostalgia.

Train Sim World Northern Trans-Pennine DLC is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for £24.99.
