Train Simulator’s Soldier Summit route, delivering dramatic and challenging Denver & Rio Grande Western and Amtrak action across the rugged Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains, has been a favorite since its release in 2015 – and now a captivating extension to the route, continuing west to Salt Lake City, is available for Train Simulator!
The Train Simulator Salt Lake City Extension brings 44 additional mainline miles to the renowned Soldier Summit route, with the new segment extending west from Provo, Utah to Salt Lake City. The expanded route, set in the 1980s, delivers the full experience of Rio Grande’s rugged Sixth Subdivision of the railroad’s Utah Division and, from Helper on the east to Salt Lake City on the west, represents 118 miles of big-time, rugged Western mountain railroading!
Along with extended main line operations, the extension to Salt Lake City includes a variety of captivating features and notable locations adding depth and challenges to the D&RGW route. Highlights of the Salt Lake City Extension include: The expansive Geneva Steel Works located adjacent to the D&RGW main line north of Provo at Vineyard, Utah; D&RGW’s sprawling and busy Roper Yard in Salt Lake City; and two large and classic rail passenger stations in Salt Lake City as built by the Union Pacific and Rio Grande.
The Salt Lake City Extension features D&RGW’s EMD SD40T-2 and GP9 locomotives and a variety of freight equipment as included with Soldier Summit. And the route also features Amtrak’s EMD F40PH diesel and complete Superliner set perfect to re-create the famed Amtrak California Zephyr!
