Upgraded to take advantage of new features in TRS19, the VR Healesville 1913-1920 TRS19 route features TurfFX, Ground Clutter, Parallax ground textures, many new scenic details, new locomotives and rolling stock, and new sessions.
This period route represents the last 20 miles of the Melbourne outer suburban line to Healesville, from Mooroolbark to Healesville. Set during 1913-1920, the years of World War 1, and it features varied steam locomotive operations during the period of the Canadian Red and WW1 Red liveries.
Although World War 1 raged on in Europe, Melbourne and in turn the Victorian Railways continued expanding, with steam hauled suburban services operating to Lilydale, as evidenced by the new expanded station and yard at Lilydale, constructed in 1913 in preparation for the electrification of the line. The Healesville line itself provided essential supplies to Melbourne in the form of sawn timber from the sawmills around Healesville, Yarra Glen, Lilydale, and from along the Warburton branch (only a short section is modelled).
This line features changing grades, the famous 'Tunnel Hill' tunnel and many bridges. Some of the highlights along the line include the Cave Hill quarry; the Tunnel Hill tunnel, and the 1.5 mile long bridge over the Yarra Flats floodplain and Yarra River near the township of Yarra Glen.
This pack features a range of new locomotives and rolling stock in period colours from ZecRail, utilising full PBR materials, and with a range of ZecRail's standard scripted features:
*VR DD Class Type 4 - Baldwin Built
*VR V class - Phoenix Foundry Built
*VR DogBox steam hauled passenger cars (AC, A, AB, B, and BC classes)
*VR C guards van
*All new VR Z guards van

*VR M timber cattle wagons
*VR N ballast wagons, and ballast plow

The DogBox carriages, C guards van, and Z guards van all feature interior light effects, which can be turned on and off via the 'set interior lights' driver command, or via an option in the Properties menu.
The VR L sheep and M cattle wagons feature random sound effects when loaded.
Over a series of 5 sessions (plus an introduction version of session 1), you will drive a variety of services using these locomotives and wagons between Lilydale and Healesville, with varying weather/environment conditions in each session:
01 - Down Passenger Service: Drive a Melbourne to Healesville passenger train from just before Mooroolbark to Healesville
02 - Up Timber Train: Drive an up special goods, hauling sawn timber toward Melbourne, from Healesville in early morning sun on a hot summer day.
