About Glasgow Airport Rail Link

The Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL) was a proposal to directly link Glasgow Central station with Glasgow International Airport in Scotland, United Kingdom. The link was intended for completion by 2013 and would have had a service of four trains per hour running along a semi-reconstructed route via Cardonald, Hillington East and Hillington West, to Paisley Gilmour Street station. It would then have branched-off on to a new purpose-built 1.2 mile (1.9 km) line taking it over the M8 motorway into the airport.

Glasgow Airport Rail Link for Train Simulaor raises the bar for driving experiences, as you'll be tested and rostered just like the real thing.

Key Features

Includes 5 Scenarios:

  • Disruption in Govan
    • You are rostered to drive a shuttle service from Glasgow International Airport to Glasgow Central. Be watchful as there are reports of a failed train in the Govan area.
  • Early Shift at Glasgow Central
    • You are rostered to form a stopping service from Central station to the Airport at 06:00am. Extra skill is required as you'll need to shunt the train into Glasgow Central, before starting your journey.
  • Shuttle Service
    • Drive the 11:00am shuttle service from Central station to the Airport.
  • Sunday Engineering Works at Hillington
    • Driving the 11:30 service from Central station, watch out for Temporary Speed Restrictions on your way. Once complete, you'll need to complete the 11:57 service back to the Airport before taking a break.
  • Unusual Movements
    • In order to maintain your license to drive the route, you must complete a series of movements that may be required when running to and from the depot. Follow the detailed instructions during this monitored empty stock exercise.

Heads up! Please note that due to the design purpose of this route, the art style of GARL is heavily biased towards the driver's eye view.
