Ever wanted to immerse yourself into the British Railways steam era? The latest Train Sim World 2 expansion brings forth the soot, the sounds and the Spirit of Steam.
Available today for Train Sim World 2 players to enjoy is the latest expansion to the game – Spirit of Steam: Liverpool Lime Street – Crewe. As you’ll guess from the title, this takes you off to the steam era as you journey back in time to the stunning sounds and smelly soot that ruled the railways of the time.
Moving through the Merseyside and Cheshire areas, the Train Sim World 2: Spirit of Steam: Liverpool Lime Street – Crewe adds in the LMS Jubilee Class loco, kitted out in BR Brunswick Green livery, completed neatly by British Railways’ late crest.
You’ll be given the chance to take your passengers along the West Coast Main Line, over the Runcorn Railway Bridge and down into the depths of Merseyside. You’ll also have the LMS Stanier 8F Class loco at your disposal too.
