We’ve previously taken in the best lines that Somerset, UK could offer, and have travelled the ancient rails of Germany with the Ruhr-Sieg Nord addition. Now though it’s time for Train Sim World to cross the ocean and rock up in America with the Long Island Rail Road content pack.
Train Sim World is quite possibly the most in-depth train sim available on Xbox One, and whilst we fully understand the competition is lacking in numbers, it more than delivers the goods required of it. But whilst the base game limits us to the Great Western railways of the UK, and the Northern Corridor of New York, it is the extra additions that are the most exciting prospects – and that is where the Long Island Rail road pack comes in.
Available right now for £24.99, the Long Island Rail Road dlc for Train Sim World on Xbox One thrusts us headlong into the manic world of the American commuter line with the famed LIRR. In operation 24/7, it is up to you to take charge of this line, controlling the LIRR M7 EMUs to make sure the commuting masses make it safely though some of the busiest junctions in the world.
In all, the route includes no less than three of the best stations – those of Penn Station, Atlantic Terminal and Long Island City – letting you in on some of the toughest railside experiences possible.
You’ll obviously need the base game to hand in order to make the most of this content, but should you be a bit of a train geek, or just want to go further with your Train Sim World journey, then the Long Island Rail Road pack should more than suffice. Head on over to the Xbox Store right now and pick it up.
