The first Scottish route arrives for Train Sim World 2 with the new Cathcart Circle Line: Glasgow – Newton & Neilston by Dovetail Games. Experience the hustle and bustle of a modern suburban network using classic electric traction, linking Glasgow’s suburbs with the historic Glasgow Central hub.
The Cathcart Circle Line and its branches date back to the late 1800s, the line between Glasgow and Cathcart via Mount Victoria opened in 1866, with the circle being completed via Shawlands in 1894. Neilston station followed close behind, opening in 1903, with the branches between there and Newton acting as a through route for coal trains. While the days of freight are long gone, both branches remain a core part of the Strathclyde commuter network to this day.
On this route you will be taking control of the instantly recognisable BR Class 314 EMU, adorning ScotRail’s Saltire livery working on services between Glasgow, Newton and Neilston. Retired from service on the line in 2019 this iconic EMU has been preserved in authentic detail on this route in Train Sim World 2. Sit in the cab of a true legend as you explore the Cathcart Circle Line.
