Southern Belle

Hewson Consultants was certainly on the right track when Southern Belle was released on the Spectrum earlier this year.

Southern Belle is not just any old simulation but an attempt to recreate the journey of a 1930 King Arthur Class 4-6-0 steam locomotive's journey from Victoria Station to Brighton.

Not only must you master the steam engine's controls - water and steam gauges, regulator, brakes, etc - but also make sure you arrive on time.

The graphics are very effective, right down to the engine's fire.

Southern Belle is a fairly complex game to get to grips with, but if you're a steam train freak, you'll love it.
