Due to the time involved and the transient nature of products we are not creating in development pages for them.

However, the expansions that we currently have under development for distribution Steam Marketplace are regularly featured in the blog as key points are reached.

For more information about the current state of development of individual packs please take a look at our Trello Board.

This Train Simulator features a more recent conversion of the air braked BORAIL wagons after they had been transferred to the engineers department as YLA Mullets and latterly YQA Parr Sleeper Carriers into an alternative YQA coded variant known as the Super Tench by fitting mesh sided modules to allow them to function as general material carriers. Although originally built over 50 years ago these conversions of the wagons can still be found in regular use as part of the engineers fleet today.

This Train Simulator features the most widespread conversion during the late 1980s and early 1990s of the air braked BORAIL wagons once they had been transferred to the engineers department as YLA Mullets to make full use of their 60t capacity, carrying concrete sleepers from production pants to track fabrication depots and work sites. Although originally built over 50 years ago the wagons can still be found in regular use today.

This Train Simulator expansion features some of the earliest long wheel base air braked general merchandise covered vans to be built by British Rail as they began to develop high capacity wagons with higher operating speeds to attempt to modernise freight services during the 1960s as a reaction to changing goods handling techniques and increasing road competition.

This Train Simulator continues the story of some of the earliest long wheel base air braked general merchandise covered vans to be built by British Rail as they began to develop high capacity wagons with higher operating speeds to attempt to modernise freight services during the 1960s as a reaction to changing goods handling techniques and increasing road competition.

This Train Simulator expansion continues the story of the striking BORAIL wagons with their substantial 'fishbelly' under-frames through conversion to air braking in the 1980s, subsequent engineers use and in some cases a return to revenue traffic in post privatisation liveries to the present day.

This Train Simulator expansion continues the story of the unfitted Bogie Bolster D wagons which saw over 1000 vehicles converted to air braking with new bogies in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a part of the drive by British Rail to modernise and eliminate unfitted and vacuum braked trains on the network.

This expansion tells a part of the story of the more than 24,000 21T hoppers built by British Railways to several different diagrams over the 10 years from 1949. These wagons were a continuation of a former LNER design, with some of the earliest examples featuring the long brake lever and single-sided brakes of late LNER examples and also riveted bodywork.

When you think about it the railways have to transport the materials that they use and this expansion for Train Simulator tells a little part of that story. Rails were an important product of the UK steel mills and given their 60 foot length special wagons were needed to transport them not only to track fabrication sites but also to the docks for export around the world. Alongside this the railways were often tasked with carrying other large loads and the family of wagons developed for carrying rails were also found to be of use for other traffics.

This expansion tells a part of the story of the more than 24,000 21T hoppers built by British Railways to several different diagrams over the 10 years from 1949. These wagons were a continuation of a former LNER design, with some of the earliest examples featuring the long brake lever and single-sided brakes of late LNER examples and also riveted bodywork. The various diagrams featured 2 styles of side ribs, but all had 5 ribs per side. By 1952, examples of Diagram 1/146 started to appear with welded bodies, the shorter BR style brake lever and Morton brakegear, with a single brake shoe to each wheel. This could be considered to be the standard design, with nearly 17,000 constructed.
