About This Content

London-Faversham High Speed brings together the exhilaration of high speed trains with the more serene ‘classic’ third rail lines of Kent all in one route, complete with the streamlined Southeastern Class 395.

The newest high speed route in the UK opened fully in November 2007 with domestic commuter services beginning on the route in December 2009 from the stunning London St Pancras station into the heart of Kent.

Departing London St Pancras, the route for Train Simulator passes under the City with Class 395s reaching speeds of 140mph before stopping at Stratford International on the edge of the London 2012 Olympic Park. Speeding through the Essex countryside and under the River Thames, high speed services stop at Ebbsfleet International Station, where power switches from overhead electrification to third rail pick-up. From here, Class 395s cross onto the ‘classic’ Kent lines, pausing at stations including Gravesend, Rochester and Sittingbourne, before terminating at Faversham.

The Class 395 is one of the most advanced high speed passenger trains in the UK and the fleet was built by Hitachi, famous for their Japanese bullet trains and on which the Class 395 was based. The model is capable of fast acceleration and deceleration to minimise travelling time, a feature of the bullet trains, and run on dual voltage systems for overhead and third rail pick up. The Class 395 is also unique in being able to run under TVM430 track-to-train signalling on the high speed section of the route and traditional aspect signalling on the ‘classic’ section.

The Southeastern Class 395 for Train Simulator features extensive internal and external detailing, including full start-up procedure, in-cab lighting, passenger view, roof detailing with working fans, driver vigilance system, accurate overheard catenary, trackside detailing including AWS boxes and ramps, and up to the minute signalling on the ‘classic’ route.

London-Faversham High Speed is an accurate depiction of a fantastic modern image UK route with stunning scenery through the Kent countryside, accurate depictions of London St Pancras Station, Ebbsfleet International Station, Rochester Castle and Cathedral, and the QEII Bridge at Dartford, and many hours of enjoyable and challenging driving.

The Class 395 is officially licensed by Southeastern and has been produced with the kind help and cooperation of Hitachi Rail Europe.

London to Faversham is a great route, especially the simulated Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) power mode and the signalling system. This is a very unique route in that sense. It comes with two trains, which is the Class 375 and Class 395 for the SouthEastern Highspeed and normal services. The supplied scenarios lack AI.

Very nice add on
It's a good train, with an fantastic line, that has lot's of diffrent aspects to it, from high speed, to low 15-30mph sections. Which keep the line interesting to drive.

All scenario's work, no problems with timing, lighting, AI, etc.

The train is good, in cab is good fun. The change over system, for going from OHL to Third Rail, is very easy to use, once mastered. There is also a good scenario / level teaching you how to do this. Good aspect from DTG there. You all get an extra train, for free that can be used in QD and other scenario's if you own the line. So there is a good added bonus from DTG there.

Is it worth list price? Does it give value for money at list price?

What about discounted, or in a sale? What about a bundle?? Yes if that's available DTG are giving you even better value for money.

YES. If you like this train, then you can have hours of fun with it in QD on OHL lines and DC lines. If you own them.

Is it's a good asset to your fleet of trains. Cracking train to drive at high speed on long runs. Also with the extra free train, that also comes into play for you in QD on your other lines.

There is one small downside, when running QD from Faversham to London, the real time clock is not working, though this does not de-tract from the fun to be had. So please do not let that, stop you from purchasing this add-on.

Well worth it, Enjoy....

A great route, one of my favourites, however the train is very hard to drive at first. I recomend newcomers to watch videos, and read full manuals on driving the 395, so the route can be fully enjoyed in its entirety

I bought this add-on, but I can't get it's photo at the routes list. It has a prohibited way sign instead of the usual photo of the route.

How can this be corrected?
