Cornish Line



  • Just got the Cornish extension for the Western mainlines route. Thoroughly enjoying it, save for one thing. There's only one full length Penzance to Paddington scenario? And it's not even in the HST. Come on JT!

    Also, the Class 50 on this full length scenario (Corn BR 1A16 Penzance to Paddington - Standard mode) - the train is horrendously difficult to stop. Even with loco brake on 100% and train brake on full service, travelling at 50 mph and cutting off throttle and applying full brakes 3 miles out from the station, my train is over shooting. Even applying emergency brakes does nothing to slow it down further. Is the train really that slow at stopping in real life?

    I have also noticed that even when fully stopped and facing UP HILL, the train still creeps forward.

    Thanks for the feedback. Answers for you:

    1. You're right about the scenario and lack of HST, it's something we might be able to sort for an upcoming service pack

    2. That's a bug that we thought had gone away. It will be fixed soon and will be in the first service pack for the product.

    3. That's a bug within TS itself I'm afraid and not something our product has introduced.

    I hope that helps for now.



  • Loving the Cornish Main Line - great work!
    I haven't attempted an end-to-end from Paddington to Penzance (or vice versa) yet, but that'll happen in the fullness of time!
    On the whole, I use Quick Drives on TS rather than scenarios, so I'd have liked to see a Plymouth to Penzance, and an Exeter to Penzance quick drive - would it be possible to add these two QDs to the route for the service pack?
    Thank you again for your hard work on this route!

    Hi Voice of Reason, and thank you vary much for your reply. I look forward to the service pack. May it come soon. 🙂
