Train Simulator 2012 Adds Donner Pass Route DLC

Challenging & dramatic scenario pack launches Thanksgiving Day has announced the well-anticipated Donner Pass: Southern Pacific add-on for RailWorks 3: Train Simulator 2012, available Thursday, November 24th (Thanksgiving Day) for download via the Steam digital distribution service.

This challenging route puts you at the controls of Southern Pacific diesels in the early-1990's, taking trains between Roseville, California and Reno, Nevada through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and high up through the incredible 7,000-foot Donner Pass. The trains are heavy, the railroad is tough and the scenery is awesome. So, start the motor, you have some real challenges ahead...

The first railroad through the Sierra Nevada mountains was opened by the Central Pacific Railroad way back in the 1860's, the culmination of a significant engineering challenge with a combination of tunnel-building and tough weather high in the mountains causing numerous TS2012 Donner Pass problems for the Chief Engineer and his team. The line has changed ownership over the years, and different operators have chopped and changed the track layout and tunnel system in the Donner Pass region in order to keep maintenance costs manageable whilst keeping the railroad operational throughout the seasons.

Donner Pass: Southern Pacific puts you to the test on this world-famous railroad where engineers deal with steep grades, tight curves and seriously heavy trains as part of a day's work. With more than 140 miles of track between Roseville and Reno and the dramatic Sierra Nevada landscape of the Donner Pass itself, there are hours of pleasure to be had driving through this incredible part of North America.
