Originally opened in 1887 by the Malmesbury Railway Company, the Malmesbury Branch Line ran to the Cotswold town of Malmesbury in Wiltshire. The construction of the line was partially funded by the Great Western Railway and the line was fully absorbed by the GWR in 1880.
Included with the route is a GWR Diagram AA3 'Toad' brake van - No. 17501 'R. U. Malmesbury' which was the dedicated branch van from the late 1930s into the 1950s. There’s also a generic version included which has a selection of typical numbers that will automatically be generated when placed. A Guard’s view is available and will switch you to a view from the veranda - useful when propelling a train as well as giving you a nice view of the scenery!
