Train Sim World: The Northern Trans-Pennine is Available Now on Xbox One

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/1-15.jpg

A whole new world is available now in Train Sim World’s latest route add-on! The Northern Trans-Pennine: Manchester – Leeds route unleashes our players on the hills and mountains that make up the backbone of England in a route filled with new challenges and features.

The Route

Train Sim WorldTrain Sim World

The Northern Trans-Pennine route takes on the mountains directly –  facing the challenge of running through and over them. This will give you a set of unique challenges as you battle steep gradients to bring passengers home on time.

We’ve also set this route in the 1980s and gone to great lengths to capture the industrial grease and grime from that era to bring the world to life around you. Many of features of modern trains were absent then, so this authentic experience includes:

  • Fewer safety systems, meaning more reliance on your awareness and reflexes.
  • A mix of modern coloured light signals and a classic semaphore system
  • Three entirely different locomotives – the Class 45, 47 and 101.

The Rolling Stock

As always the highlights of the route are the locomotives themselves – so lets take a look at the lineup:

Train Sim WorldTrain Sim World

With production starting in 1956 and the final units only being removed from service in 2003, the Class 101s are a massive success story on the UK rail network. As the driver, you’ll need to master the manual gear-change system (the first of its kind in Train Sim World), much like you would in a car.

Train Sim WorldTrain Sim World

These powerful diesel locomotives were the champions of the Midland Main Line until their withdrawal at the end of the 1980s. Common for many years along the Trans-Pennine route, the Class 45 is the perfect seat from which to tackle the steep grades and heavy trains – and it’s full of little details like seat height controls that bring the locomotive to life around you.

Train Sim WorldTrain Sim World

The Class 47 originally appeared in Train Sim World as a restored, contemporary heritage locomotive on the West Somerset Railway route. On the Northern Trans-Pennine however you’ll be dealing with a totally rebuilt model reflecting the on-board systems in place during the 1980s – as well as a more authentic and grimy look and feel that perfectly suits the latest release.

The Northern Trans-Pennine route for Train Sim World is available now on Xbox One. It’s the perfect piece of history whether you’re looking for something new or an experienced driver excited about a blast from the past.

The Northen Trans-Pennine add-on for Train Sim World is now available on the Microsoft Store for $29.99. Click here to learn more.

What are mosasaurs?

Travel back to the Cretaceous period, where large marine lizards called mosasaurs dominated ecosystems around the planet. While some were the size of a dolphin, others were longer than a Tyrannosaurus rex. How did they become such a formidable apex predator? This National Geographic video describes the fossil evidence. More history from Wikipedia:

The first publicized discovery of a partial fossil mosasaur skull in 1764 by quarry workers in a subterranean gallery of a limestone quarry in Mount Saint Peter, near the Dutch city of Maastricht, preceded any major dinosaur fossil discoveries, but remained little known. However, a second find of a partial skull drew the Age of Enlightenment‘s attention to the existence of fossilized animals that were different from any known living creatures. When the specimen was discovered between 1770 and 1774, Johann Leonard Hoffmann, a surgeon and fossil collector, corresponded about it with the most influential scientists of his day, making the fossil famous. The original owner, though, was Godding, a canon of Maastricht cathedral.

When the French revolutionary forces occupied Maastricht in 1794, the carefully hidden fossil was uncovered, after a reward, it is said, of 600 bottles of wine, and transported to Paris. After it had been earlier interpreted as a fish, a crocodile, and a sperm whale, the first to understand its lizard affinities was the Dutch scientist Adriaan Gilles Camper in 1799. In 1808, Georges Cuvier confirmed this conclusion, although le Grand Animal fossile de Maëstricht was not actually named Mosasaurus (‘Meuse reptile’) until 1822 and not given its full species name, Mosasaurus hoffmannii, until 1829. Several sets of mosasaur remains, that had been discovered earlier at Maastricht but were not identified as mosasaurs until the 19th century, have been on display in the Teylers Museum, Haarlem, procured from 1790.

The Maastricht limestone beds were rendered so famous by the mosasaur discovery, they have given their name to the final six-million-year epoch of the Cretaceous, the Maastrichtian.

Words

nomothetic

nomothetic


Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day for January 16, 2019 is:

nomothetic • \nah-muh-THET-ik\  • adjective

: relating to, involving, or dealing with abstract, general, or universal statements or laws

Examples:

“Moreover, there is the often-incorrect assumption that crimes and offenders are sufficiently similar to be lumped together for aggregate study. In such cases the resulting nomothetic knowledge is not just diluted, it is inaccurate and ultimately misleading.” — Brent E. Turvey, Criminal Profiling, 2011

“First, they can expect to find an investigation of the ways in which males and females differ universally: that is, of the nomothetic principles grounded in biology and evolutionary psychology that govern sex-differentiated human development.” — Frank Dumont, A History of Personality Psychology, 2010

Did you know?

Nomothetic is often contrasted with idiographic, a word meaning “relating to or dealing with something concrete, individual, or unique.” Where idiographic points to the specific and unique, nomothetic points to the general and consistent. The immediate Greek parent of nomothetic is a word meaning “of legislation”; the word has its roots in nomos, meaning “law,” and thetēs, meaning “one who establishes.” Nomos has played a part in the histories of words as varied as metronome, autonomous, and Deuteronomy. The English contributions of thetēs are meager, but thetēs itself comes from tithenai, meaning “to put,” and tithenai is the ancestor of many common words ending in –thesishypothesis, parenthesis, prosthesis, synthesis, and thesis itself—as well as theme, epithet, and apothecary.
