About This Content

The Class 33 ‘Crompton’ is a classic British Rail Southern Region diesel locomotive, and is ready to get to work for you in Train Simulator.

The Class 33 first appeared in British Rail Green livery in 1960 and was deployed in the south east. The first British Rail locomotives to be fitted with a modern electric train heating system, the 33 quickly spread across the whole Southern Region and could occasionally be seen much further afield, mostly running passenger services but also turning its hand to freight operations. A total of 98 examples were built, fitted with 1,550-horsepower Sulzer engines, and they proved popular with crews. The ‘Crompton’ worked throughout the BR Blue and Network Southeast eras, and 40 survived in service up to the privatisation of the network and continued working for their new owners, EWS. These have now been retired from service, though a number survive in preservation today. With 7 authentic liveries and Sea Lion ballast hoppers, the Class 33 Add-On for Train Simulator is a classic for British Rail diesel fans.

Includes:


Class 33 diesel locomotive in 7 liveries: BR Green, BR Blue, BR ‘Dutch’ Grey, EWS Maroon, BR General Grey, Network Southeast, BR Sector Grey

Sea Lion ballast hopper wagons

I bought this loco for 9 USD on sale, and I was quite surprised. A few people I had talked to said this model was outdated, poor sounds ,etc, but for some reason, I found myself thouroughly enjoying it! I like the variety of Liveries available in this pack, my favorites being the NSE "Toothpaste" and the "Dutch" Engineering. I also LOVE the sounds of those classic Sulzer engines thumping away. The one thing I found with the locomotive that I did NOT like, was that as soon as you put a few cars on the rear, it bogs the engine WAY down. I was running a stopping service on the Great Western Mainline, with 5 coaches, and could only get upto 60 in a distance of 2 miles.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this locomotive for purchase, though I can't say as though I would buy it for full price, just as it IS a little outdated. Final rating= 8.5/10

Also, if you want to take this locomotive to the next level, you should buy the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 33 Sound Pack . This completely revamps the sound set, and makes the 33 among the best-sounding in game!

This loco and the class 31 and now the class 27 and the 25 are all musts for those playing scenarios in those early days of deisel traction, those iconic sounds of the era really make it seem real.
