About This Content

The 4CIG is a classic ‘slam door’ electric multiple unit and is now available in Southern livery with scenarios for the London to Brighton Expansion Pack.

Introduced in 1964, the Class 421 4CIG (4-car Corridor Brighton stock) ran as a 4-car train comprising a driving trailer, motor coach, unpowered trailer coach and finally a driving trailer. It is a classic example of the ‘slam door’ EMUs which were once such a familiar sight across the rail networks of southern England. Extensive 3rd-rail electrification of the Southern Region led to the widespread adoption of these 90mph EMUs, and the 4CIG (British Rail Class 421) was initially introduced on the London-Brighton Line where its multiple doors enabled rapid turnaround of passengers at the many regular station stops .

The 4CIG units received a facelift in the late 1980s, and continued in mainline passenger service into the 21st Century!

PLEASE NOTE: the London to Brighton Expansion Pack (available separately) is required to play the scenarios included with this add-on.

I have always loved the slamdoors, including this one!

However, this is (of course) the same as the Class 421 just in Southern livery. To save money, you can get R Fletcher's 'South Central' reskin from the DP Simlation website. As another review said, this should have been included in the Class 421 pack itself.

I cannot say anything about how realistically the train is replicated, but it is nice to drive, that's sure. I miss a passenger view though.

What DTG should've done is just included it with the 421 Pack itself. Sounds and everything are the same from the other 421, so either buy both on sale or buy one of them. However, because it's a slamdoor, it fits at home on the BML.

8/17

A classic slam-door train in a post-privatisation livery. Good controls for a train from 2012. Can't confirm about sounds, being from the other side of the world. Good mix of scenarios included. Nice door animations. An excellent DLC.

Overall, i'd recommend it as it adds greatly to the London to Brighton route. The model is good, as is the cab but some of the sounds are not that well done. Where are the distinctive 'clacker-clacker' sounds from the air reservoirs for example? 7/10
