BR Class 73 ‘Gatwick Express’

The unique Class 73 remains the only electro-diesel locomotive in active duty on Britain’s railways and now comes to Train Simulator in the highly recognisable InterCity Gatwick Express livery, complete with Class 488 and Class 489 (GLV) vehicles as support. The loco has been carefully reproduced with support from the Mid-Norfolk Railway and former drivers of the class to bring this amazing and iconic loco to life. Features includes full dual-mode control of both the diesel engine and third-rail pickup, actual sounds recorded from 73210, and many more. This is one loco that should be part of everyone’s collection.

Feather River Canyon

Train Simulator’s Feather River Canyon route recreates the dramatic Western Pacific main line from Oroville to Quincy Junction, California, as it existed in the late 1960s and early 1970s and the route also includes a segment of the Inside Gateway (Western Pacific’s important connection with the Great Northern and later Burlington Northern) from Keddie to Crescent Mills, as well as the trackage of the lumber-hauling Quincy Railroad short line. Western Pacific’s Feather River Canyon is one of the most famous, scenic, and highly-engineered railroad lines in all of North America.

  • Is it possible to purchase the UP Insulated 50-foot RBL Plug Door Boxcar that came as a TS Rewards gift. I ask this because I used it in a scenario for the Feather River Canyon route and one subscriber wants to know where he can purchase it from? Can it be purchased via the Marketplace?

    • Only owners of TS2016: Steam Edition or TS2016: Standard Edition will have the UP Insulated 50-foot RBL Plug Door Boxcar. TS Rewards are given as exclusive gifts to everyone who purchased TS2016 (and registered for TS Rewards) and will therefore be not available to purchase separately.

  • I don’t exactly see how anyone could’ve missed any of these, since they’re always advertised during the TS loading screens or backgrounds. Especially the Maglev…

    • Some people lead busy lives and are involved in things outside of Train Simulator, so it’s possible that many could miss the latest releases!
