Bristol & Avonmouth (Download)

Compatibility: Train Simulator 2013

The Bristol and Avonmouth route has been created to give you the chance to enjoy many operations around the route, from the coal loaders at Avonmouth to the bustling docks, the Severn Beach line (highlighted by Thomas Cook as one of the most scenic lines in Europe!) to the four-mile tunnel under the River Severn.

Starting at Bristol Temple Meads, you can take a trip to Bristol Parkway in preparation to carry on to London. Go South into Portbury docks and take in the magnificent Clifton Suspension Bridge or take a heavy freight load past Filton Airport, where Concorde G-BOAF resides opposite the magnificent Brabazon hangars.

Do you feel like taking a trip back to the past? Drive to the Bristol Harbour Railway where you can travel up and down the dockside railway and see Brunel's famous SS Great Britain and the M Shed Museum which occupies the former Bristol Industrial Museum building. 

Or maybe you'd prefer a trip into the future? Portishead railway station is subject to a great deal of debate at the moment with ongoing campaigns to re-open the line and its stations at Pill and Portishead to ease traffic on the A369. The line has been included, with the station at Pill bought back to life and the lines laid and station buildings placed at Portishead station.

If you want to do some good old fashioned shunting, there's plenty of scope for that too, with the docks at Avonmouth and Portbury, coaling yards at Avonmouth, and shunting yards at Stoke Gifford and east of Bristol Temple Meads.

Bristol and Avonmouth includes a total of 21 stations and features 15 scenarios, ten using default stock, and five using stock from Just Trains, as well as four Free Roams.

Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association

Created by ex-Servicemen Dave Capps and Ben Garfirth, Bristol & Avonmouth was developed as an aid to help their adjustment back to civilian life after the rigours of combat.

Helping that adjustment is SSAFA Forces Help, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association charity. SSAFA help and support those who serve in the UK’s Armed Forces and those who used to serve - even if it was only for a single day. SSAFA also care for the families of both. Last year alone, SSAFA’s professional staff and trained volunteers provided a reliable, caring and trusted service to more than 50,000 people. SSAFA has helped to make a real difference to many lives.

Your purchase of the route will help to ensure that SSAFA’s fine work is continued with donations made from your purchase.

"Probably one of the most sophisticated routes I have seen yet, in both design and complexity... Some of the finest scenic views in Train Simulator I have seen yet in any add-on... B&A is an excellent add-on and ranks right up at the top with the rest of the Just Trains Routes, but this one tends to stand out in my mind as one of the best!... I have to tell you that the Just Trains Routes just stand out as the best and this route by far exceeds them all in detail, complexity and just sheer design!" Avsim.com
