We create Train Simulator 2016 addons such as reskins, routes and scenarios. We also run a YouTube network for rail fans and have our own T-Shirt range. All money made from Blue Rail Studios goes back into Blue Rail Studios to maintain the website.
Blue Rail Studios was launched on the 20th of September 2014 and was previously known as UKMods/UKM Games. The Blue Rail Studios brand began witha very little fan base and has now grown to become the 2nd largest Train Simulator reskin Facebook page and is now ranked 2nd on Google for the search term 'Train Simulator reskins' after DP Simulation.
Our first reskin ever created was the Class 170 South West Trains DMU which has now been updated with new and improved textures. This reskin was quickly followed by our Voyager range.
In late 2014 we partnered with Golden Goldsmith Scenarios and have made reskins that have been released with the specific scenario packs.
In early 2016 we decided to remove all our content from UK Train Sim due to the payware wall they operate to limit downloads through their server.
