Western Lines of Scotland Review – Train Sim World Magazine

Train Sim World Magazine
My review covering the Western Lines of Scotland route for the Train Simulator series has appeared in the very first edition of a new digital magazine – Train Sim World.

UK Routes for rail simulation titles focus on a variety of location highlights – be it industrial areas filled with warehouses and bustling with work activities, towns & cities full of traffic and recognisable landmarks or the lush surroundings of vast countryside. The ‘Western Lines of Scotland’ includes more of a gentle setting, as you travel through the pleasant green landscapes with only the tweeting of bird song for company and the infrequent train passing by in the other direction.

Well now nearly one year later since the podcast recording, ‘The 7th Guest 3: The Collector’ has appeared on Kickstarter to raise funds to create the game for an expected release of October 2015.
