The Locos

Despite the fact that the 3 CC6500 series (6507,6554 and 6572) all look the same on first viewing, take a closer look, there are subtle differences both on the outside and the inside of the cabs of the locos. The addition in V1.2 of the Maurienne liveried 6549 again adds another variant to the loco shed with its variations to the other three.

The Stock - Sleepers

There are 5 variants of the B10c sleeper car and the passenger view (Key 5) gives you a full 360 degree swing inside and ouside of the sleeper car. There is 1 restaurant car in red and cream and there are 2 V1a sleeper cars. Good quality textures on all vehicles. One additional item not mentioned in the release is the inclusion of the bright orangey yellow 'Poste' car.

The Stock - Car Transporters

There are 2 different car transporters usually attached to the rear of the train. Useful for the activity guys to make up car transporter trains.

There are a number of additions to this pack that make it a quality add-on pack, especially for those simmers into French Railways.

1. The extra sounds that Sylium have included in this pack: A ticking clock in the cab, the incredible whine and hum of the traction equipment, the squeals from the wheels if you brake hard.

2. The introduction of Night Cabs. These are oustanding. Set yourself up with the night cab, grab yourself a cup of coffee, select the time of your journey for 21:00, turn the lights out in your room, turn on the headlights and WOW, this is Night Driving at its best.

3. Sylium have used the pantograph flash, but have used it wisely and sparingly which adds to the effect without it becoming tiresome and boring.

This is an extremely well thought out pack with some well chosen locos and rolling stock. If you want high quality SNCF locos and stock then this is a MUST HAVE for your collection.
