Fastline Simulation Ltd: Formed in 2007 as an independent publisher of MSTS content. The company took the decision to start creating and marketing their own range of stock packs and routes for Railworks with Project East Coast forming the central principal for the stock pack development.
Project East Coast: The Newcastle to York route provided with Railworks is the perfect canvas to portray the railways of Britain in the Diesel and Electric era as they strived to change from the traditional methods of the days of steam into a modern (and profitable) enterprise. The plan is quite simple, to provide as much of the rolling stock possible to bring to life this thriving corridor in a period loosely based from 1974 to the mid 1980s and the coming of the overhead wires.
