Game description

Spectacular scenery and large sweeping curves through the Rocky Mountains are just some of the features of Marias Pass, available now for Train Simulator. 

The 152 mile Montana route was first charted by the then principal engineer of the Great Northern Railway, John Frank Stevens, in December 1889. It proved to be an ideal route for a railroad with its wide valley and gentle gradient, meaning it would not require extensive excavation and multiple locomotives would not be required to haul freight up its incline. 

The Pass reaches more than 5,200 feet (1,580 metres) at its summit and forms the southern edge of the Continental Ranges, a major grouping of the Rocky Mountains. Starting out at Shelby, the route winds up and through the flat farmland and open plains before heading into the mountain range through narrow canyons and vast pine forests alongside the Flathead River. Passing through Cut Bank and Browning, the route reaches the summit just after Marias, before descending through Essex and Columbia Falls to Whitefish. 

The route is famous for its spectacular bridges, and these are accurately depicted alongside other features including mountain snow sheds, the silo ‘Dalek’ at Browning, Belton Lake, the concrete Penguin at Cut Bank, a large marshalling yard at Whitefish, industrial facilities throughout the route and the 13 mile branch line to Kalispell. 

Also included with the route is a GE ES44 DC locomotive in BNSF heritage livery and a Burlington Northern EMD SW1500 switcher, along with new BNSF 50ft box cars and lumber cars, and several reworked freight cars in BNSF and BN livery. 

Marias Pass is a stunning Montana route through some of the most picturesque mountainous settings with its unique challenges of driving long, heavy freight trains up and down the wide valleys and gentle gradients.

Familiar route to Train Sim fans


The Train Simulator: Marias Pass route add-on for TS 2015 may look familiar to you. Fans of the previous Microsoft Train Simulator will remember this route as a centerpiece of that game, and now the route is available again. The pack includes the route, appropriately skinned locomotives and rolling stock, as well as some new units and scenarios. This route is long, and provides a lot of content for the money. Scenery is well done, the views are fantastic, and overall this familiar route has never looked better. Scenarios are fun and worth the effort, with the entire length of Marias Pass being a long haul through varying terrain. All content included is useable in other modes, like quick drive. Fans of American railroading, particularly modern diesels and currently operating areas of the U.S. should pick this up. If you're an old fan of MSTS, in will be fun to be back in Whitefish again.
