About This Content

The Class 390 is a modern classic, and you can experience the speed of this powerful tilting express train from the driver’s seat in Train Simulator.

The Class 390 is one of the fastest electric multiple units operating in Britain. The set can reach 140 mph, whilst featuring tilting train technology to allow higher speeds around bends. At present, the Class 390 operates along the West Coast Main Line and is well-known to commuters and railfans alike for its sleek looks and high performance. In 2006 a Class 390 set a new speed record along the West Coast Main Line, completing the 401-mile trip from London to Glasgow in 3 hours and 55 minutes, and in usual operation the sets will run up to 125mph where track conditions allow. The Class 390 for Train Simulator recreates the smooth high performance well-known to drivers on the West Coast Main Line, and features a realistic tilting function which mimics the action of the real thing.

This is an amazing train BUT... many of the included career scenarios are all but impossible to complete unless you want to spend the time saving and reloading all the way from Gretna to Motherwell because in career mode even non EPS speeds will see your score wiped out by penalties and to get round the various bends like Elvanfoot curve etc you have to drop to absurd speeds of 70mph whilst you in a class 86 could go round the same bends considerably faster without incurring one penalty.

Yet saying that, in standard mode, it is still a very sleek, very powerful train, far better in my opinion than the Voyager or 801, a shame the speed set control doesn't auto brake like other ones e.g. class 91, 90 etc does on speed set control but it is a very well modelled, superb crafted train set nevertheless and in other liveries looks gorgeous.

If you are a points and medal zealot like myself then this will frustrate you in career mode but still in other modes it is a pleasure to drive, very predictable and my one hope is that DTG will pay some lurve to this, add more functionality to the train, fix the drive quality issues and bring it into the realm of an updated 2015 ready unit.

Great add on, but best to get it in the sales, as, the sounds aren't that great. Hopefully AP can fix that soon, but also, a few downsides in the cab, such as no cab lighting.

As far as I am concerned a very good add-on. Pity about the lighting. No cab lights as far as I could see and the headlights non existent. That's why I don't play WCML career scenarios. Lots of them in total, black darkness. Too depressing.
