    Today we’re bringing you the next Preservation Crew update to Train Sim World 2, as well as some other goodies.

    As well as the ‘Large’ Great Western Express, ‘Medium’ Northern Trans-Pennine, and ‘Small’ West Somerset Railway Preservation Crew releases, we’ve also added our first batch of Livery Designer logo decals, an improvement to derailing (specifically for Spirit of Steam, but also effective across other routes too), and some new vending machines on some stations’ platforms (of which there will be more information soon!)

    As this is a large update, we’ve bolded the headline changes for navigational purposes.
