This modern day branch line on the famous Stockton and Darlington Railway delivers an unmatched level of detail in RailWorks 3 – six amazingly accurate stations, stunning modelling of the surrounding countryside and buildings along the route and an array of night lighting features which show off the latest RailWorks 3 graphics capabilities at their very finest. Users can even visit the Locomotion National Rail Museum at Shildon and drive all the steam and diesel locomotives housed there! Two new repaints and a diverse set of custom scenarios complete the package.
The level of detail lavished on every feature of this North East England branch line is simply outstanding, from the busy platforms of the East Coast Main Line station at Darlington to the carefully researched buildings and scenery along the route. The modelling is accurate and right up to date, but users can enjoy a trip back in time thanks to the inclusion of the Locomotion National Rail Museum at Shildon, where they can step down from their modern Class 166 or 153 and climb aboard any one of the historic models in the museum collection.
This new expansion features an unparalleled depth of detail in and around all the stations:
- Bishop Auckland
- Newton Aycliffe
- North Road
Also included is the new Bishop Auckland West platform at the start of the Weardale Railway heritage line. Numerous new assets have been specially created for the route, including buildings, bridges, signage and other items throughout the stations.

The Locomotion National Rail Museum at Shildon is fully modelled – users can drive any of the steam or diesel locomotives in the collection.Exceptional night lighting effects along the whole route add realism to night time operations.
