About This Content

The heavyweight of UK freight is coming! The updated General Motors built Freightliner Class 66 V2.0 ‘Shed’ is now available for Train Simulator, with scenarios for the Edinburgh-Glasgow route.


The Class 66 was introduced to the UK in 1998 as a replacement to the popular Class 59, using the same body shell as its forerunner but with updated power units, internal fittings, new computer control systems, radial steering bogies and 3,000hp engines. In total, 446 of the Class were built, quickly making the Class 66 the diesel freight locomotive of choice among UK freight operators, including Freightliner, GB Railfreight, Direct Rail Services and EWS, mainly for freight operations but also with some charter passenger services on their roster. Their popularity has also seen variations of the Class 66 enter service for European operators as a result of their versatility.


The Freightliner Class 66 V2.0 for Train Simulator is a re-worked model of a previous version, with an updated and improved interior and re-modelled exterior. Available in Freightliner livery, the model features accurate brake control and centre-sprung brake lever, accurate engine and horn sounds, FEA-B Spline and KTA Pocket intermodal container wagons. Scenarios specifically for the Edinburgh-Glasgow route are also included.


The Edinburgh-Glasgow Add-On (available separately) is required to play the scenarios included with this Add-On.

Scenarios

Three scenarios for the Edinburgh-Glasgow route:


  • Cadder Misty Morning
  • Intermodal Run Around
  • Keeping out of the Rush
More scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game. Train Simulator’s Steam Workshop scenarios are free and easy to download, adding many more hours of exciting gameplay. With scenarios being added daily, why don’t you check it out now!

I got this when I bought the UK Collection bundle. It is a nice add-on in my opinion and it is commonly used in a lot of workshop scenarios made by the train simulator community that covers the UK trains. The physics are good and the sounds are okay. But the horn is hilarious though as it sounds like a synthesizer more than an air horn. But if you get the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 66 sound pack. That solves the horn issue.

The locomotive comes with some intermodal wagons and three scenarios for the Edinburgh to Glasgow route that I also have and they are okay. But you will get more fun from this locomotive if you use it in your own scenarios like I do. A very nice modern UK freight locomotive add-on and I would recommend getting this in the UK Collection bundle as you get more add-ons for your money.

Overall Rating: 9/10.

First off, lets get the positive out of the way first. The class 66 model is very good indeed....

On to the bad. The EWS 66 was launched a couple of months before this (which i purchased), then this, which is just a reskin and a couple of senarios and NOW they have lunched the powerhaul. ALL of these are full price (£11.99) and are just reskins of each other with some senarios...

SHAME ON YOU DTG you bunch of robbing so and so's.... you are just exploiting the general public as these should just be the class 66 with different liveries like what you did with the class 31. If Just trains and Armstrong powerhouse can do this to give the customer value for money then you can as you have done it before!

Buy 1 class 66 and get some reskins and you'll be very happy.

Provides an additional 3 scenarios to the Edinburgh-Glasgow route.

Mainly deals with freight hauling to/from specific locations.

I would possibly expect this loco to be integrated into other additional routes with this type of loco being fairly universal throughout the British Isles/UK.

Overall, decent. Can't complain.

Ridiculous!!! the in cab graphics are AWEFULL.... to say i have seen better in cab graphics in BVE!!!!!
the horn sounds are pretty naff too :(
On the other hand though... external graphics are pretty good and playability is good.
Just a shame it has an aweful paper cut out style poor graphical cab not to mention the aweful wipers :/

Nice freight loco and rake of cars for the sim. I'm not a fan of the 66's Braking system but it really doesn't matter :).

I got this in the uk collection by DTG so I wasn't sure what I was expecting. I have usual 66s coming through my area so I was intrigued to see what this was like. And I can say... YES YES YES!! Here's why...

PROS-
The model is amazing, looks exactly like it should
The engine sounds are great, not to quiet, not to load
The cab looks as it does in real life
Brakes are great, I mean really great. A lot of fun there
Has nice acceleration with long trains

CONS-
The horn is a bit dodgy, but I guess I'll let that slip.

I 1000000000000000% recommend this.
