Transylvania Route V1 (Mediaș-Teiuș-Deva)
Transylvania Route V1 (Mediaș-Teiuș-Deva)
Part of the Transylvania Route Project, the Deva-Teiuș-Mediaș route for Train Simulator Classic has officially released with the birth of this website. This route builds on the old Teiuș-Deva project, but here the things are taken further as the original section went through an infrastructure rework and scenery optimization and updates (with new and proper 3D models for the stations in Bărăbanț, Sântimbru and Coșlariu and with an activated train depot in Teiuș, this station having went through a massive remaster both infrastructure and scenery-wise)*. Also, Coșlariu's sorting station is now semi-operational.
The latest extension of the project, consisting of the Teiuș-Mediaș line brings 62 1:1 more kilometers to the already existing ~100 kilometers of the route (counting Simeria Triaj and Șibot-Cugir too). The extension, being inspired by the real landscape and infrastructure of the area, presents to you Coșlariu Gr. Mureș, Cistei, Crăciunel, the iconic and historical city of Blaj, Câmpia Libertății, Mănărade, Glogoveț, Valea Lungă, Lunca, Micăsasa, Șeica Mică, Copșa Mică, Târnava and Mediaș.
All of this, together with the old portions of the route, can mostly be travelled at the intended speed of 160 km/h, taking full benefits of this part of the Pan-European Corridor IV. The ETCS-compliant signaling system is also integrated in the new section of the route, marked with specific infrastructure components.
The old scenarios are also joined by 8 more, some of them being extensions from the last one. Also, the route does support quick drives, albeit some basic ones.
ATTENTION! THE PRICE CONVERTED FROM LEI IS CIRCA 5 EUROS.
For the route and the scenarios to work properly you must buy and install Dovetail's Train Simulator Classic (https://store.steampowered.com/app/24010/Train_Simulator_Classic/) and to install the scenery and infrastructure dependencies (RO Asset Pack, Catenary Pack, Romanian Template and Signals Pack) from https://railstudios.com/ (make sure to check out the tutorials: https://railstudios.com/tutorials/). Also, you must also have the rolling stock from there and the Sky & Weather Enhacement Pack from https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/sky_weather_enhancement_pack_2.0. Beware that the scenarios used the 1.0 version of the pack, so there might be some problems with the weather on the 2.0 version. Take note that if you don't have the weather pack, you will have a default weather in the new scenarios, missing on the dynamic effects that the AP is offering and even influence the scenarios. Also, for the scenarios to work, you have to install the freeware/payware rolling stock presented on www.railstudios.com.
Launch the Utilities tool (that can be found in the game's directory), click on Package Manager, click refresh and then install. From the new window select the .rwp files that were downloaded.
The archive also contains a version for the Romanian Asset Pack 6.1. DO NOT install the Custom Objects or the rwp file of the route from that particular folder if you installed the 6.5 version of the Romanian Asset Pack. Those are strictly for the 6.1 version.

For the next updates of the Transylvania Route Project new parts of the M300 will be brought to life, as we may all look up to Cluj-Napoca and Sighișoara! Looking forward to present to you aspects of the work as we look towards these two magical cities of Transylvania!
*Simeria benefited from some long awaited optimizations too, with lots of objects being removed. Still, the issue with Simeria is way deeper than that, the huge infrastructure and the presence of Simeria Triaj being the main at fault for the problems in there. Should you consider that the optimization problems are still unbearable, Simeria Triaj's elimination from the route could be taken into discussion.
We look forward for you trying out the route.
