About This Content

The Flying Scotsman is one of the most famous locomotives in the world, and you can drive this beautiful steamer on your own railway lines in Train Simulator.


The Flying Scotsman has become a legend of the rail world. Destined for fame from the very beginning, Flying Scotsman entered service in 1923 as the figurehead of the Kings Cross to Edinburgh express service, and has since broken numerous records including being the first steam locomotive to top 100mph, way back in 1934. Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, this 97-ton A3-class locomotive has remained an icon, hauling express passenger trains for 40 years and remaining incredibly busy even after retirement. Flying Scotsman has toured the world, breaking more records along the way, and over 80 years after entering service is in the care of the National Railway Museum in York, UK. Flying Scotsman for Train Simulator includes the famous double tender version as well as LNER Apple Gren and BR Brunswick Green liveries.

You can't have a train simulator collection without having Flying Scotsman in it. But although this is a positive review, I feel as though this could of been done a little better.

It's not the model at fault, it's the sounds. They're exactly the same as Tornado's, and it only uses the A4 chime as the whistle. Now this might not be too much an issue with the smoke deflector variants, it feels irksome not to have the option of the bell whistle; although you could argue the real thing is barely audible.

Otherwise, the loco is a good model, it runs nicely and fits in with preservation era stock nicely. It'll pull 13 coaches reasonably well, and it'll accelerate up to about 82mph on about 28%/32% cutoff. Especially since you get three different variants; the Pegler Era Apple Green locomotive with double tender, the later preservation era variant with Smoke Deflectors (still in Apple Green) and the British Railways Brunswick Green variant (also with smoke deflectors). It also comes with some Crimson and Cream Mk1s, which is nice if you're looking to bolster your Mk1 collection.

Overall, I'd give it a 7/10, it's a good loco if you consider it's been out since 2012, it'd just be nicer if they could update the sounds, but it might be a bit of an ask.

This DLC is great. 3 different versions (LNER Modern, BR Brunswick and LNER Double Tender). Sounds might not be the best but there is the Steam Sounds Supreme which you can buy for £5 to make it better for the LNER Modern & BR Brunswick versions. The LNER Double Tender has it's own sound pack for £3.50.

Completley unrealistic. I went between York and Thrisk a journey of just over 20 miles, and it didn't break down once.

Who could fail to love the elegance and glamour of the world's most famous locomotive. 'Flying Scotsman' looks and works superbly in this rendition for Train Simulator. Coming with a variety of liveries and a selection of appropriate Mk1s, this locomtive is perfect for those planning a steam rail tour or those who have dreamed of being in the cab of 'Flying Scotsman' easing back on her regulator to take her out of King's Cross on the non-stop to Edinburgh. Performance is as good as the 'A4s' both braking and acceleration wise, although top speed is obviously less than 'Mallard's' 126.4mph. Nevertheless, 94.8mph was attained on ECML King's Cross-Peterborough with 1 tender and 7 Mk1s, so her record of 100mph is quite probably attainable. Thoroughly recommended to all steam lovers/enthusiasts as one of the best steam locomotive purchases available with Train Simulator. Enjoy!

Anyone who even owns this game, this DLC is a must. The Flying Scotsman is not only a world-known train, it might just be even the most iconic Steam Engine ever.

This train has a nice spot in my heart, and is right next to the ATSF Warbonnet Super Chief.

This is a great piece of dlc, The detail is exelent on it.
In my opinion it was money well spent, the only downside is that im not a very good steam train driver but i did manage to get it up to 77MPH.
