Cwm Twypsin

Celtictrainsim’s Welsh scenario. Based on the Newport to Abergavenny railway for the first part and an entirely fictional branch beyond Abergavenny, with a Welsh flavour influenced by the south Wales valleys and the heart of Wales line.

At the start of 2013 (and after dropping hints for the past year or three that it would be nice to see a Welsh-themed route for the train sim) there was still no reaction from Owain Glydwr’s mob. So, gray decided to give it a go, beginning at Newport, Gwent. The route, named ‘Cwm Twypsin’ is partly based on the actual line from Newport to Abergavenny.  Then, from Abergavenny, a branch emerges off the main line. This part of the the ‘Cwm Twypsin” track is purely fictional and was made to feature several aspects of the Welsh rail landscape. It runs a distance of about 25km from Y-Fenni - a little under a half-hour trip.


With the arrival of OpenBVE Program v1.5.0.1 the installation of route and train packages is much easier than before. The “Package Management” feature button in the game start menu (picture, right) will install any route or train that comes as a compliant package simply and easily.
All celtictrainsim route and train items for download from this website are compliant with this latest program version.

For users wanting to install the items manually, or who want to continue with only v1.3.x.x, the package (which is a .zip file) can still be extracted manually and the contents placed as before.

Previous cts installation help sheets (interactive pdf) no longer apply.  For full instructions to use the “Package Management” to install add-ons go to this page of the OpenBVE Project website. http://openbve-project.net/install-addons/
