London South Coast


CLEARANCE ITEM May have imperfect packaging but comes with a full 12 month warranty*

From Excalibur's range of train simulator add ons, London South Coast is the first installment in a brand new series of Microsoft Train Simulator add-ons which bring together the best in UK developed products featuring railway lines, both past and present, throughout Great Britain.

This first package amalgamates two of our previously best-selling add-ons: London - Brighton Express and Brighton - Portsmouth (West Coast Express) giving you the opportunity to journey directly from London to the South Coast. Significant enhancements to both products reflect the technological advances made by legendary train simming developer, EuropeanBahn, since both titles were originally published. These include the addition of masses of scenic detail along every stretch of track plus aircraft landing and standing at their gates at Gatwick Airport.

Set in the modern day, London South Coast features three authentic railway lines from the south of England: the Brighton Main Line (London Victoria to Brighton), the West Coastway main line (Brighton to Portsmouth) and the Arun Valley Line (Three Bridges to Ford). Together, the three lines form a natural triangle.

The addition of the Arun Valley line has enabled all three lines to be joined together seamlessly. London South Coast allows you to travel from London to Portsmouth non-stop either via the Arun Valley line or the tunnel between Preston Park and Hove!
