## About This Content
The stunning and picturesque landscapes of the Somerset hills come to life in
this unique route for Train Simulator, representing the proposed reopened
heritage line from Frome to Radstock.
A railway line in the North of Somerset is nothing new, with the Bristol and
North Somerset Railway opening in 1873. This important line connected Bristol
with Radstock, joining an existing branch from Frome to Radstock to serve
collieries and the communities that brought workers to the coal industry.
However, since 1973 this part of Somerset has been without a rail line, until
now – the North Somerset Railway’s plan to reintroduce a heritage railway
operation between Radstock and Frome will bring new access to an area of
natural beauty and serve a growing housing population in the area.
The route for Train Simulator demonstrates what the new railway will look
like, running from Frome, with important connections to the mainline, through
Mells and Kilmersdon, to Radstock. The first phase of the line, from Mells
Road to Mells, is planned to open in 2018, with the full line from Radstock to
Frome scheduled for opening in 2025.
Included with the North Somerset Railway route for Train Simulator is the
Class 117, a diesel multiple unit synonymous with branch lines and suburban
services. Built from 1959 until 1961, many of the units still run today on
preserved railways, despite being withdrawn from mainline service in the mid
