    Ever wanted to drive a train? Well, now you can from the comfort of your living room – Train Sim World: Founders Edition is Out Now exclusively for Xbox One!

    The Great Western Main Line started construction in 1835 as a grand effort by famed engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, to link the Southwest of England to London, and the line was quickly established as a major link for both businesses and residents, in and outside the capital.

    The first three stages of the “GWML” saw the line between London and Reading completed, this stretch of track followed the Thames Valley, and by Brunel’s design was noticeably level, being dubbed “Brunel’s Billiard Table”.

    Today, the line is operated by Great Western Railway, and has for over 40 years been the definition of high-speed with the introduction of the ‘InterCity 125’ BR Class 43 HST (High Speed Train), a British icon in and of itself that has sped passengers out of London at 125mph with ease for decades.

    “GWR” also provide local services along the Thames Valley utilising the 1990s-built ‘Networker Turbo’ diesel multiple units, including the BR Class 166, a 3-car unit capable of bringing commuters into the heart of the Capital, while keeping up with the bustling schedule.

    Having rail connections across the length and breadth of Britain, the GWML also sees significant freight traffic daily. DB Schenker are frequently tasked with hauling freight across the Thames Valley, for which they employ a fleet of BR Class 66 diesel-electric locomotives, 3300 horsepower brutes which share heritage with the American SD40-2.

    With Train Sim World: Founders Edition, available now exclusively for Xbox One, the full “Great Western Express” experience awaits!

    Download the Train Sim World: Founders Edition Quick Start Guide here.

    Be the Driver…
    Step into the feature-accurate cabs of the BR Class 43 HST, BR Class 166 and BR Class 66 and perform a variety of high-speed, local stopper and key freight services along the stunningly recreated Great Western Main Line between London Paddington and Reading.

    …Beat the Clock…
    Managing a balance of safety and timeliness provides a unique challenge. No matter your duty, be that stopping at every station or travelling at over 2-miles-a-minute, keeping to schedule while offering a smooth ride is of upmost importance.

    …Explore the Thames Valley…
    Hang up the master key and just go for a walk, start at each station and take in the detail as you explore your surroundings. There are a total of 75 collectables for you to find in Train Sim World: Founders Edition, where will you start looking first?

    …And so much more!
    Catch a ride as a passenger, go trainspotting, unload aggregate, rescue a stranded HST, face the typically British weather – forget the “Beast from the East”, the “Best from the West” is available now in the form of Train Sim World: Founders Edition, exclusively for Xbox One! ■

    Is there ever going to be more routes and DLC for this instead of just the GWR line?

    Of course. Why wouldn't there be any other routes coming to xbox, is the question you should be asking yourself. All that work for just a single route and have none of the others to potentially follow? (including future routes). Though CSX-HH is resource intensive for the xbone, as i read elsewhere, its likely they'll adjust certain aspects of the game, making other routes playable on the xbone. There will be some differences between PC and xbox, in order to get this done but you'll definitely be seeing more than just GWE. This was only the route initially chosen for release on xbox and it most definitely, is not the last. Don't worry.

    My god people, be patient and play something else. You guys are acting like TSW is the only thing out there to play. Go play COD or whatever you play, the time will go faster too.

    First of all we just asking what’s the status and y’all keep giving us some lame ass excuses smh and what’s crazy we spent thousands and thousands of dollars to buy and play sim train games. So we have every right to ask you or whoever may concern any question to the games we play.

    I think what will most likely happen is that the PC DLC content will make it's way to the Xbox One later this year (bar 'CSX Heavy Haul', as the developers have stated this particular one is too intensive for the Xbox One to handle).

    As for new routes, I'd say they will come even later. My guess is they are working on bringing the already released PC DLC content to Xbox One. So I wouldn't get my hopes up in terms of getting new routes/trains anytime soon.

    Ok, first off to most of you new here, be civilized in this form, we all have the same interest here. And second, TSW was already been planned to be on Xbox from the beginning, and they already got the core mechanic in the GWE route, on Xbox alone, to test it out. The reason that it's called "Founders Edition" is that people can test to see how the game goes on Xbox or other consoles. DTG is, so far, not an expert of porting other released DLC to Xbox One while working on other routes and content to PC that pc players can play and report bugs to make sure that it'll run smoothly to the game. Time is patience, and yes, most of you feel like being out of the loop not knowing whats going on. That doesn't mean this is still being worked on for a while now. Whatever DTG will say next for the Xbox version, for better or worse, will be the news you'll be expecting to hear from them.

    Ok I guess we all have to wait ? And see what’s going on but no biggie. I see all this PC gaming coming out for PC only but not working on adding new routes or adding a new foundation like Amtrak service etc etc ? But I’m just going to wait

    On the PC side it's normally been between three and four months between DLC releases. DTG don't have as much experience producing Xbox releases but at least they have two previously produced DLC to migrate to the Xbox. However because they'll need to tweak (bodge?) the DLC so that it runs on theXbox without slowing to a crawl I suspect it will be roughly the same timescale between releases especially since DTG is still working on improving Xbox performance.

    All the above is a long way of saying "Yes, you need to wait". ;)

    They've said they are still getting used to UE4 and routes will get longer as they begin to get more experienced with it. As for more routes just play something else till some more content is released? Surely you have other things to play. Some of us are real enthusiasts and don't mind repeating these but if you are bored no one is forcing you to keep playing.

    Is Train Sim World West Somerset Railway is coming to Xbox one or no. I’ve seen a couple of posting on the wall. So it’s just a question is that coming out for Xbox ?

    WSR will be coming out but at a later date when DTG releases more to Xbox this year. Right now, it'll be released on PC when it's further announced.

    I wish they would just get a move on with the Xbox One X enhanced update. I can't bring myself to play it when I know it doesn't look its best.

    I feel you on that. However, I want those achievements! Last one I got to get is in the 166. But I definitely can't wait for the enhancements for the Xbox One X.

    Haha the achievements are pretty lame. It's too many miles to drive with the class 166. Over 1000 miles or something from memory? That's insane!

    Yes, you have to drive 1,660 miles in the 166. I'm at 456 miles if I'm not mistaken. I want them all. I did the HST first, then the 66. The 166 is the last one. I did them based on which one had the least first to get

    Got them all too apart from the miles ones, love that DTG are super generous with the amount of score per achievement.

    No? I'm not even hunting for or care about achievements and got it just because I like 166 and drive it from time to time.

    I purchased the founder’s edition of this game so I got it early, but I was expecting shorter routes that take a short 20 minutes. I prefer these than the others that have 20-30 mins between stations. It would be nice to see short routes like the London Overground, Stratford-Richmond. The distance betweeen stations isn’t too far which would allow the game to keep my attention rather than me watching family guy between stations.
    I am sure others would like to see this to so I look forward to seeing some shorter routes in the future.
