North East England - V1 Release

I'm very happy to announce that V1 of North East England is now available.

Version 1 of this all new route features a high quality representation of the East Coast Main Line between Darlington and York, the section of the Durham Coast Line between Northallerton and Hartlepool and the section of the Darlington to Saltburn line between Darlington and Eaglescliffe with numerous custom assets in order to capture an authentic look and feel of the area.

A range of standard scenarios are included with this first release along with a basic implementation of quick drive. These are a temporary measure and as time goes on we will introduce a range of dedicated scenario packs for the route along with a much more advanced system of era-specific quick drive to cover multiple eras. Please refer to the PDF document entitled 'NEE Scenarios' that is provided as part of the download for more information.

Please also refer to the detailed manual (readme) for any issues that I have noted and are aware of for this first release. You can download the manual from the link provided on the download page, it is also included as part of the route package.

  1. Hi Darren, just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed what I've seen so far in this route. Darlington is now my local station and you've captured it perfectly. As a Geordie, I'm really looking forward to the extension to Newcastle and the Durham Coast Line.
