Glorious Devon 1960's - Now Released!

Glorious Devon 1960's
An all new route from Team GD60 which consists of Tristan Peat & Mike Graves, plus help and reference from many members of the community.

The section of the former Great Western Railway that runs along the South Devon coast between Exeter and Paignton is one of the most famous and picturesque locations in England that has captured many people's hearts.

“Glorious Devon” recreates the area as it would have looked in the early 1960's, pre 1964 after which the Beaching cuts took effect. Significant research has been undertaken to achieve the closest possible authenticity, recreated in digital, for the Rail Simulator game. A period of great transition for Britain's railways, from much loved steam traction – Manors, Halls, Castles and Kings, to early classic diesel hydraulics – Hymeks, Warships and Westerns.

Glorious Devon offers great potential for scenario writing, from local passenger services, to inter-regional expresses to London, the Midlands and beyond. Although the location is predominately rural, freight services were varied too, including coal distribution and fuel for a 40MW power station, livestock, milk and china clay.

There is much to discover, from rail connected docks to stations long since closed but now brought back to life. 

The following routes are essential, the route may not function correctly without them:
Riviera Line:  Steam Store

Falmouth Branch:  Steam Store

Isle Of Wight:  Steam Store
The following routes are required, but the route should be functional in a limited state (i.e missing scenery) without them installed:

West Somerset Railway:  Steam Store

Woodhead Line:  Steam Store

Bristol to Exeter:  Steam Store/Just Trains

Cornish China Clay:  Creative Rail

East Coast Part 1&2 or Part 3:  Creative Rail

The Glorious Devon 1960's route has an extensive list of freeware requirements in order to provide the most authentic possible experience. In order to examine/obtain these requirements before downloading the route, a PDF copy of the manual can be viewed by clicking here. Some of the UKTS requirements are based around signalling on the route, so these will be required to make scenarios function correctly. For users who use the bulk search facility at UKTS, you can view a list of the file numbers by clicking here.
The route also includes five scenarios that utilise the GWR Hall steam locomotive included with the Falmouth Branch route. Further payware requirements are also required, these can be found in the manual provided with the download below, or it can be viewed by clicking here.
