The Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Route
The combined route is being developed and released in two distinct phases.
The first phase is the Ffestiniog Railway section from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog. This section is complete and is released now.
The Welsh Highland section is to be completed in Phase 2 and while the track and non-custom specific assets are present, the custom assets such stations, lineside buildings, signals etc. are still to be done. You can drive trains over this section, which is part of this release, but you will not see any custom built assets on this part of the line.
Once Phase 2 is complete and released, if you have purchased the Ffestiniog Route (Phase 1), you will be able to purchase the complete route of Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways at a special discounted price.
Don't forget, all the proceeds from the sales of this route will be donated to the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway Trust.

Pre-Requisites for the Ffestiniog Route
(1) You must have obtained and install a copy of the Train Simulator product (currently version TS2021). A search of the web should give you the site or try the link below.
(2) Because the original route was developed as a personal project, the original route Author used many assets from a range of third party content. As a result you may need to purchase and download a number of the Download Content (DLC) products to maximise the visual effects of this route.
The advice is to install the route as is and then decide if the missing assets are essential for your own purposes. The route will install and run without these additional components but the visual appearance will be limited.
A full list of the DLC used is provided below. Again they can be purchased and downloaded from the Steam Store
Suggested Download Content (DLC)
Of these DLCs, the main add-ons to try first would be the KUJU - EU Assets Pack and the RSC -Settle & Carlisle Route
Note: You may already have the Kuju - EU Asset Pack if you bought an early version of the Train Sim product. (Railworks or TS2012). Unfortunately, it stopped being included as a standard game pack a few years ago!!
