Train Simulator: Norfolk Southern N-Line Route Add-On Review
The Train Simulator Norfolk Southern N-Line route puts you in the engineer’s seat for operations over a curvy and roller-coaster branch line which will require you to keep a close hand on both throttle and brakes as you make your way along the “up one hill, then down the other” route over sometimes uncertain trackage. And you’ll enjoy the depth of lineside switching and local duties as you serve the N-Line’s variety of customers. In addition to the N-Line itself, this Train Simulator route also includes the Salisbury “Old Spencer” Yard along the NS main line from which N-Line operations are based. Built in 1891 as the Yadkin Railroad and a long-time property of the Southern Railway, today’s Norfolk Southern N-Line extends from Salisbury to Halls Ferry, North Carolina (29 miles). The NS N-Line is noted and cherished by rail enthusiasts for its challenging “saw tooth” profile, sharp curves, and journey through Carolina forest country. And while the N-Line has all the appeal of a traditional southern short line, it is also vital and alive with tonnage traffic. The NS N-Line serves more than a dozen diverse lineside industries and customers, including a massive aggregates quarry and a variety of forest products and agricultural customers. Accompanying the Norfolk Southern N-Line route are three locomotives ideal and authentic for use on the route: NS EMD “hi-nose” and “low-nose” EMD GP38-2s and an NS EMD GP40-2. And the route also provides a variety of contemporary freight rolling stock including a three-bay covered hopper, aggregates hopper, center-beam flat, boxcar, and other modern equipment.
