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.

Not a bad train but not really great either. Requires a large amount of throttle just to even get moving and idiling just activates the brakes. Colour scheme's are nice but without the branding they do look a tad bland at times. Majority of the buttons are just for show and unusable. However the tilt feature having a off/on feature it makes no difference despites the EPS boards clearing you to 110-125mph any curve sections result in rapid braking and dropping anywhere between 10-50mph in speed to avoid getting brutally penalised for drive quality despite older NON TILTING loco's and rollingstock taking the same curves at higher speeds than yourself without being punished.

I guess you'll be thinking in terms of why did he bother buying it then? why not just get a refund? It's rather simple really.

1: Instead of the old price of $19.99 it's now $8.99 making it much more tempting to buy.
2: Provides more options while browsing scenarios in the workshop.
3: Nothing wrong with having more trains to choose even if their just sitting in the background.
4: Most importantly it puts you that much closer to using Just Trains and Armstrong Powerhouse scenarios and routes since the Class 390 is required.

Class 390 Pendolino Train Pack

I bought this purely for the experience of driving a tilting train, looking forward particularly to the sweeping curves of the Northern Fells and Scottish borders on the WCML. Imagine my disappointment then, after driving several slow speed scenarios around the outskirts of Glasgow, when I find myself on a long Northbound run to Glasgow and that you cannot exploit the tilting system to allow high speed travel around bends!! The drive quality parameters for this model are absolutely ridiculous, you are penalised many hundreds of points whilst negotiating bends at speeds well below the allowed maximum. You can travel faster in a standard non-tilting train and receive no penalty.
The most annoying thing about all this is that people have been complaining since 2012 and yet nothing has been done about it. I'm sure all it needs is a small coding alteration to re-set the drive quality parameters. Presumably this will not happen now? I feel like I have been robbed!

A good bit of DLC. It handles nicely and is fast. Shame the buttons are not pressable with only one light setting. Would be nice to have the Virgin Livery Without Downloading reskins. A good reskin is from DP Simulation

Taking the controls of these class 390 is more relaxing and easy than a class 86, but at high speeds you cannot loose concentration. Know your braking distances and you will control the massive horsepower of these modern trains.
The sound especially is pretty good, except the horn. Shame there isn't more interactive controls in-cab.
