About this Product

Experience a unique marvel of rail innovation, an Underground veteran turned Solent explorer. Modern-day Isle of Wight duties await with Rivet Games’ Island Line 2022: BR Class 484 for Train Sim World 2!

Please note: Train Sim World 2: Isle of Wight is NOT required to play this add-on. The Island Line 2022: BR Class 484 EMU comes with its own, modernised version of the route.

For the past 50 years, the Island Line, which traverses the Isle of Wight from the water-lapped Ryde Pier south to Shanklin, has been uniquely operated by otherwise life-expired London Underground tube stock. 1967 saw the introduction of the Standard Stock, given new life as the Class 485 and 486, which were then replaced in 1989 with the Class 483, itself formed from old 1938 Stock. Being over 80 years old though, the 483s were in dire need of a replacement.

The tradition of using ex-Underground stock would continue, but in a way that would rock the boat for the line as it was. An order for 5 Vivarail D-Trains, rebuilt and modernised vehicles from the District Line D78 Stock, was placed. Being sub-surface trains, this saw the line overhauled to accommodate the new, taller fleet. Platforms were rebuilt, track was altered, new signalling was installed.

Following months of upgrades and testing, the new BR Class 484 entered service in November 2021. These 2-car EMUs retain their Underground soul, but are also kitted out with modern cabs, revised interiors, digital destination displays, and new headlights.

In Train Sim World 2, take control of this modern-classic along an upgraded Isle of Wight, across a series of engaging scenarios and an all-day timetable. Ride to Ryde and Shuttle to Shanklin, a new set of challenges await with Rivet Games’ Island Line 2022: BR Class 484!

“Massive improvement over the last IOW route, guard panel is a great inclusion too!

line0237

“One of the best DLCs so far! I like the little added features such as the need to unlock the cab doors, the lock on the doors between the carriages etc. The scenarios are unexpectedly satisfying and interactive, compared to some other routes. There are still some issues and bugs like falling into holes at the pier station, passengers glitching into structures or falling on the track, but overall this is a solid DLC and I can only recommend it.

Player Comments

I really like it and on my system, it’s by far the smoothest running route in the whole franchise. I’d rather be subjected to electric shocks than all that stuttering, which is almost completely absent from this route (on my modest hardware).

~ mjack35

Great short route, lots of detail, and the Class 483 is pure train-driving joy! Stations and running rail are well-detailed, as are the houses and environment which abut the platforms. As long as one understands that the route is short (~8.5 miles long), and measures expectations accordingly, this is a fantastic and fun route to purchase.

The only feedback that I have to offer is the quality of the water. The textures / appearance is very redundant, and appears very mechanical when looking out toward the horizon. Unfortunately, this significantly detracts from one of the best parts of the route – the Pier Head and Pier running section.

Again, great short route – its easy to pick up and complete a route any time of day. Keep up the great work – would love to see more routes like the Island Line!

Pros:
1. 483 model is great, a lot better than the TS one. 2. You can press a few buttons on the guard panel of the 483 like lights and doors. 3. Route scenery is pretty nice. 4. NSE livery on 483 is good. 5. Stations look pretty good although a bit clean. 6. The collectibles are good and a few locations are cool. 7. Being a small route FPS is great

Cons:
1. Currently a bug where the timetable will not give you any scheduled time to stop at a stop so you don’t earn enough points to get a gold medal. 2. Sounds were recorded from the 483 however were stretched so they completely ruin the recording and make the train sound like trash. 3. There are no run sounds on the 483 or at least none I can hear. 4. The water below Ryde Pier is questionable. 5. No red livery for the 483 although I managed to make a branded SWR livery with a few hours work in livery designer. 6. The door animations on the 483 are very bad (they just close really fast). 7. Classic sound bug where the game will sound like you are falling out of a plane when standing up while train is in motion. 8. AI doesn’t drive with lights on

Overall I give this route a 7/10 although there are loads of issues I think it is still a lovely route to have a quick drive. I have had so far a great time playing with this route even with all the bugs. If you are not bothered by a few busg here and there then I recommend this route. Although $25 is a bit steep if you really want this route then get it and a sale won’t be for a bit.

EDIT: I have no idea why it says I have zero hours on this route, lol. I have played this route a lot so…
