Hi ,

Coming Soon - LMS Coronation Scot

'On the west coast of the United Kingdom, the London and North Eastern Railway was setting the benchmark by racing passengers between London and Newcastle in style and in record time aboard it's streamlined Silver Jubilee service.

To the east, the London Midland and Scottish Railway took note of the global phenomenon and particularly the positive publicity that the LNER's advances attracted.

Aware of the rival's plans to expand on it's success, LMS directors set to work on establishing their own foothold in the new age of high speed rail.'

The Coronation Scot addon pack celebrates the halcyon days of LMS passenger service, recreating the sights and sounds of this remarkable historic train.

Trainz DLC - Duchess Update!

Members who have purchased the LMS Duchess addon are in for a treat as a free upgrade is now available! A host of improvements have been applied to the popular addon, along with extra content as a thankyou for your support.

Many of you will be aware that the Princess Coronation, later "Duchess" Class was a breed of varying faces. As bonus content we've added five class members in LMS livery as they appeared without smoke deflectors; we're sure you'll agree that these locomotives were equally handsome in this guise.

Of course the romance of rail is not just about the locomotives, and for the carriage inclined we've also included a Composite Brake Third of the "porthole" variety, the name owing to the inclusion of circular windows. Built by BR to an LMS design, the "porthole" Brake Third was a common sight in the years following nationalisation and in fact survived well into the BR era.

Represented in BR Crimson/Cream and BR Blue/Grey liveries, we think you'll find these coaches a pleasing addition to the Duchess set.

To take advantage of this free upgrade simply log in to your Planet Auran or Steam account and you'll find the download link in your Order History.

Not a Duchess owner yet? Worry not, these upgrades are now supplied as standard with the Duchess addon pack. Click here to purchase yours today!
