Joining two of the north of England’s major cities, the Liverpool to Manchester route for Train Simulator features stunning stations and well known landmarks throughout.
The original route between the cities ran between Liverpool Central (High Level) Station and Manchester Central, and was opened in 1873 by the Cheshire Lines Committee. Although both stations have since been demolished and replaced by Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Piccadilly, it still remains an important route for passenger and freight traffic.
The 40 mile route sees up to four passenger trains per hour in each direction with freight still operating on the route. Various light industrial sidings are also a feature, including well known landmarks such as Manchester International Freight Terminal, the River Mersey, Manchester Ship Canal and Liverpool Edge Hill. A total of 24 stations can also be found on the route, including Manchester Oxford Road, Warrington Central, Liverpool South Parkway and Widnes.
Included with the route is a Regional Railways Class 158 diesel multiple unit (DMU), built for British Rail between 1989 and 1992. The DMU was built to replace many locomotive-hauled passenger trains and had a top speed of 90mph (145 km/h).

This is a really nicely detailed route with a lot of scenic details moving through countryside and diverse industrial areas. The locomotive supplied is really well modeled and comes with fairly original and realistic sound effects. You have the option of purchasing the class 101 for this route at a very low price, so I recommend doing so. it's a shame that the 101 is the only available add-on. The track side detail is a lot better than many other modern UK routes. good selection of scenarios. I recommend this DLC.
