The Romance of the Rails hits Trainz

The feature packed Princess Coronation set is a must have for anyone with a taste for the romance of rail.

Conceived by the office of Sir William A. Stanier, FRS, the Princess Coronation is a classic example of British engineering at its finest. In the heated rivalry remembered as "the race to the north", these magnificent machines were devised to speed the LMS "Coronation Scot" service in competition with the LNER's Flying Scotsman for London-Scotland traffic. Capable of delivering over 3000hp the "Big Lizzys" were a formidable match for Gresley's A4.

The first 10 locos of the class were built with a streamlined cladding colloquially referred to as an upside down bathtub. Due to the added weight and maintenance difficulties, the streamlining proved nonviable and it was later removed revealing a locomotive of very handsome lines.

The remaining 28 locos were built without streamlining and the class became commonly known as "Duchesses". From 1945, smoke deflectors were fitted to help with smoke obscuring the crew's forward vision, giving them the distinctive final appearance that became so popular with observers.

The LMS Princess Coronation pack is a high quality depiction of the class in LMS crimson and BR green liveries in unstreamlined guise as it appeared in latter years of service.

These painstakingly modeled locomotives make use of the latest sound, physics and smoke systems. A custom cab interior and clever additional features such as scripted couplers, brake hoses, nameboards and configurable marker lamps make these horses a satisfying addition to your Trainz stable.

Such a stylish locomotive deserves a stylish consist, and so providing the perfect accompaniment, is a set of LMS Period 3 (Stanier) coaches.

With such attention to detail and so many great features, we're sure you'll find the Princess Coronation pack a truly immersive Trainz experience.

Haven't had the chance to check out My First TRAINZ Set yet? Have a look at what these reviewers have said:

"...with the price of hobby trains [being so costly], this is surely a title that all rail enthusiasts should own." - Charlotte Woolley of Gamercast.

"Setting up model train tracks can be a really fun activity, but there's no denying that the set-up process can be cumbersome and it takes a lot of time to clean up... N3V's My First Trainz Set, slanted toward a younger audience, lets players set up train tracks all around the house - a virtual house, that is - without all the mess or the parental scolding." - Mark Raby of GameZebo.

My First TRAINZ Set lets you experience the world from a unique perspective as you drive miniature trains all over the house! Drive on fun default courses or design your own landscape by easily moving objects in each room and building track on anything you want! Is the couch in the way of your railroad?
