Two of our packs have received updates. The GWR Manor Sound Pack has been updated and is now called the Ultimate GWR Manor Sound Pack. The reason for the name change is simply because the pack now contains MUCH more content in the way of unique sounds! Each preserved loco within the Just Trains Manor Packages have received unique sounds, to more closely represent their real life counterparts.
In our second update, the free GWSR route pack is now at version
2.5. Changes include updated signalling(including new sounds), scenery
improvements at Toddington, track layout changes at Laverton and
extension of the track to Broadway(limited scenery). This is to try to
reflect the changes taking place at the real line. Download the route
