Become A Beta Tester For Us

Have you ever wanted to test our routes before they are released to the public? Are you methodical and can give constructive feedback? We may have mentioned our small team of testers, but are you interested in becoming a beta tester?

Announcing our beta tester programme!

Our testers are a very dedicated bunch. However, some of them are not able to give as much time as they used to. Also some of our trains feature more functionality. More can go wrong with these. Something as complex as the dual voltage capability of our Class 313 EMU is a prime example of this. The current version (the early beta) is sometimes has the odd glitch. While a fix is already being worked on, it was missed in the testing stage. This is in part because we wanted to release the route a lot earlier in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Moving forward, we at BVE Western Region would like to do things differently. Which is why we want to give you the opportunity to apply to join our pool of beta testers. Please ensure you’ve read the terms and conditions at the bottom of this article before you submit your application.

What do I need to do to enter?

To become one of the lucky few simply fill out the form above and submit it before 1st June 2020

Please remember, we are looking for committed testers who can offer at least 1 hour a week to test and who will respond to our emails if they are unable to commit this time when asked to test. We don’t mind if you have a holiday planned, but we’d like to know you won’t be participating in a round of testing. 

Not everyone who signs up will be successful so if you don’t hear back from us then assume that you were unfortunate this time.
