The Fife Circle Line, which spans the Firth of Forth via Scotland’s most recognisable structure, releases today for Train Sim World 4 courtesy of Rivet Games.

Train Sim World’s ever-growing list of iconic UK locations and landmarks adds perhaps the most famous railway bridge of them all from today with the Fife Circle Line route Add-on. Players will be able to take control of a new train to the series, the ScotRail Class 170 DMU and traverse the 8,000-foot, 134-year-old leviathan that is the Forth Bridge.

The Add-on, developed by Partner Programme Developer Rivet Games, features 52 miles of line between Edinburgh Waverley and Markinch, covering both the Loop Line and the Main Line via Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath and Kirkaldy. As part of the experience, in-train announcements will feature in the Class 170 and owners of the previous Scottish route Edinburgh – Glasgow (also by Rivet Games) will be able to operate additional Class 385 services between Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket.

Jasper Holzapfel, of Rivet Games: “We’re always proud to recreate a route close to home, and had a lot of fun bringing the virtual recreation of Fife Circle, and the Class 170 to life!”

Licensed partner ScotRail feature in the game, with the official livery on the train and branding at the stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, said:

“It’s fantastic to see the world famous Forth Bridge come to life in this new Fife circle addition to Train Sim World 4.”

“ScotRail regularly operate the class 170 trains on this route, and I’m sure players will be delighted to see this addition to the game.”

In the real world, an extension of this route is scheduled to reopen in June as part of the Levenmouth rail link, which will run along the former Leven Branch Line, which closed to passengers in 1969.

Once the Leven branch has reopened, Rivet Games will begin work on adding this into the route Add-on as part of a post-release update. The ScotRail class 158 is also planned to be made available for this route later this year as an additional loco Add-on, courtesy of Skyhook Games.
