    Experience a true iconic, straight from the London Underground: The 1938 Heritage Tube Stock is coming soon to Train Sim World 2!


    The 1938 Stock was put into service in 1938 and had cutting edge technology by that time: The 38 Stock was the first tube train that had all the driving equipment mounted below the seats. That meant almost a third more space for the passengers - a significant advantage!

    The trains mostly served as 4 car units, with an motorised A coach, followed by two non-driving middle coaches and a motorised D coach. It was important that the A and D were coupled together, because the engines in the D coach were mounted in the opposite direction, compared to the A coach. Coupling an A and an A would have meant that if both were set forward, the two units would have pulled in different directions.

    In their 50 years of service, they experienced several smaller changes. The biggest difference was the black roof, which a few units received. The black roof units also got the new, white tube logo - while the red roof version kept the unique golden “London Transport” logo on the side. You’ll be spoilt to choose which version you want to drive - both are included in the 1938 Stock for Train Sim World 2!

    It was about 50 years later, when the 1938 Stock was taken out of service. But that wasn’t their last ride for a few of them... Just a year later five units experienced a rebirth as a Class 483 on the Isle of Wight - but only the A and the D coach, without the middle coaches. It took 32 more years before these units were finally put in their well-earned retirement in the beginning of 2021.


    You can still experience the Class 483 trains on our virtual recreation of the Isle of Wight - which is available for Train Sim World already! Click here to learn more about the Isle of Wight: https://www.rivet-games.com/product/tsw2-isle-of-wight/

    • Die Sammelobjekte | Arosa Linie für Train Sim World 2
      by Jasper_Rivet



      Mit Train Sim World 2 hat Dovetail Games die sogenannten “Collectibles” eingeführt - Kleine oder große Objekte, mit denen der Spieler interagieren bzw. diese einsammeln kann. Und weil diese normalerweise ein bisschen versteckt sind, muss man dafür die Strecke erkunden und entdeckt nebenbei auch noch wunderschöne neue Orte.

      Hier sind die Sammelobjekte, die wir für die Arosa Linie gemacht haben:

      by Jasper_Rivet



      With Train Sim World 2, Dovetail Games invented “Collectibles”; items small or large which you can interact with and collect - and because they’re usually a bit hidden, you’ll need to explore the map, discovering beautiful new places.

      Here are the collectibles we’ve made for the Arosa Linie:


      The Snowglobes:

      The idea for doing these might have resulted from a stroll through the RhB merchandise shop or just the fact that we wanted...

    • Arosa Line für Train Sim World 2 | Die EW1 Wagen
      by Jasper_Rivet
      Jetzt wo die Arosa Linie offiziell angekündigt wurde, möchten wir drüber sprechen was enthalten sein wird - konkret soll es heute um die mitgelieferten Wagen gehen.

      Damit die Ge 4/4 II etwas zu ziehen hat, legen wir die die sogenannten “Einheitswagen” bei. Diese Personenwagen wurden seit Mitte der 1960 nach einem standardisierten Verfahren entwickelt und gebaut. Für die Arosa Linie haben wir uns für den Typ EW1 entschieden, die erste Generation der Einheitswagen. Weil die Personenwagen...

    • Arosa Line for Train Sim World 2 | The EW1 Coaches
      by Jasper_Rivet
      With the Arosa Line now officially announced, we want to share a few more details about what will be included. Today, we’re talking about the coaches.


      In order for the Ge 4/4 II to have something to pull, we’re including the “Einheitswagen” (German for “standard wagon”). These passenger coaches built after certain uniform design features from the mid-1960s onwards. For the Arosa Line, we choose the EW1, which is the first generation of these passenger coaches. Because...

    • Some reflections from Iain Mackay - The developer of Suburban Glasgow Northwest
      by Jasper_Rivet
      Some reflections from Suburban Glasgow creator Iain Mackay that other Train Simulator content developers may want to consider:
      · One of the requirements for creating a commercial route on Steam is to start working in a “Source” area instead of using pre-compiled assets pointing to several different providers. This also impacts on whether DRM (copy protection) can be implemented. When a route gets released, ideally it will only use one provider and product (i.e., its own)
