Working railtours throughout the country aboard the footplate of the iconic Black 5 is your duty, as multiple scenarios take you from near and far, meddled between modern traction and powerfully driving home the spirit of yesteryear (above and below).

Not only that, but Bossman Games’ Stanier Class 5 introduces LMS and British Railway-era guises, allowing you to recreate any moment in the fleet’s hard-working history, be that old-time passenger service (above), or having a bit of a clear out before the next port of all (below).

Authentic and immersive, the cab of the Black 5 will change upon the era you are in, as the decades roll by, speedometers appear, and AWS becomes fitted, which is how several locomotives are preserved to permit mainline running.

Perhaps the most enthralling experience is that which offers views of the West Highland Railway (above and below). The Stanier Class 5 sees most of its action along the detailed Fort William to Mallaig route, as recreated by Thomson Interactive, with no less than 6 scenarios taking you through vibrant Scotland.
