Buy Train Simulator: Class 158 DMU Add-On

 

About This Content

The Class 158 Express Sprinter is a familiar site to people across Britain, and this classic DMU (diesel multiple unit) is ideal for running passenger services on your UK routes in Train Simulator.


The Class 158 was introduced by British Rail in 1989 as part of the programme to replace ageing heritage DMUs still in service. With an aluminium body, the Class 158 was dubbed the Express Sprinter as it was designed to accelerate rapidly between stations, making it ideal for stopping services where new tighter timetables could now be introduced. With a top speed of 90mph and comfortable interior furnishings, it was also intended to be capable of handling longer services with ease.


The Class 158 for Train Simulator includes three liveries, allowing you to recreate services from different parts of Britain.

Quiet engine, like it is in real life, and has 4 different liveries, not 3 as said.

I have to say this is a nice addition to my collection. Sounds nice, looks nice. Bu! One thing that really does put a black mark against it. It needs the headlights fixed as there is none! Only Rear! But I still recomend this. Just dont use it in Night time runs!

This unit is very nice, the sounds are not the best so I would strongly advise you bought the Armstrong Powerhouse sound pack. 9/10

The class 158 is a nice train to be added to Train Simulator as it runs on quite a few routes. The South and North of the UK so there are a lot of possibilities with this train. Unfortunately, some things are inaccurate- such as the sounds and how fast the doors open. However, overall I enjoy driving it.
