Ravenglass and Eskdale Route and Stock Pack

By David Ward, Presented by Bubble's Railways

Welcome to the home of the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway Project. Started by David Ward in 2008, the pack has brought together some of the best creators of minimum gauge rolling stock and scenery for Microsoft Train Simulator to create the famous railway in Cumbria. Please see a list of contributors at the bottom of the page.

Bubble's Railways is now proud to present you the fruits of David and his team's work - and best of all, you can get the route and rolling stock for free when you buy another Bubble's Railways pack from our selection on this page!

Known Bugs

Whilst every care has been taken to ensure an accurate representation of the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, some bugs have been found. In most situations below these are due to limitations within the parent program and not the route and stock itself. You will need to ensure that you have Xtracks and NewRoads installed in order for this route to work. These can be downloaded from here and here.

- Due to the tight curves found on some areas of the route, some stock may appear to 'bounce' depending on your MSTS configuration. During testing we have found that this is not a frequent error, and can be 'pulled through' where necessary.

- The diesels have very limited sound. Sound sets can be downloaded from www.uktrainsim.com if you wish to add some sounds of your own.

- Many of the locomotives are set to start with their brakes off. When starting on a location along the route which is on an incline - it will be important to put your breaks on quickly!

- On some computers, lines may appear on the ground textures. This is due to MSTS and its compatability with some Windows 7 graphics cards.
