Talyllyn for TS2017 Simulator

A Chance To Drive A Talyllyn Train Whenever You Like!

Purchase a full Railway Route & stock to simulate the World Famous Talyllyn Railway in Southern Snowdonia.  A donation is made to the Talyllyn Railway for every new purchase of a CD.

The route has been created using real world Digital Elevation Model (DEM) terrain landscape data and the track laid to real Talyllyn profiles so that you can now experience the skills required by the Talyllyn drivers in running the trains up and down the line.

Almost all the scenery objects have been created and textured using photo-realistic techniques taken from hundreds of digital photographs of the railway.  This adds to the realism and atmosphere of the line.

The Talyllyn Adventure 2 includes features such as:

  • Terrain developed from real-world DEM (digital elevation data) that gives a realistic feel to the Talyllyn mountains and valley.
  • Accurate track-work gradient profiles
  • Custom built objects taken from the actual Talyllyn route
  • Over 90% photorealistic texturing from photographing actual Talyllyn objects.
