Gravesend, Ebbsfleet and Dartford have been immortalised as a computer game.

The towns feature on a new rail simulator game which follows the high speed train route from London to Faversham.

It promises gamers the “exhilaration of high speed trains” with the “more serene rail lines of Kent, all in one route”.

The game follows the Class 395 high speed train, which came into service in 2009, on its 51 mile journey from St Pancras.

Players can drive there and back again, during frosty conditions or take part in driver training courses on the route.

Locomotive lovers can glance at CGI recreations of London St Pancras, Ebbsfleet International, Rochester Castle and the QEII Bridge at Dartford.

It also features a full start-up procedure for the train, in-cab lighting, passenger view, roof detailing with working fans, driver vigilance system, accurate overheard cabling, trackside detailing including Automatic Warning System boxes and ramps, and up to the minute signalling on the classic route.

Officially licensed by Southeastern, developers of Train Simulator promise “many hours of enjoyable and challenging driving”.
