About This Content

The Class 465 EMU is a popular sight across the south east of England on commuter services, and this modern four-car unit is now available for Train Simulator.

The Class 465 ‘Networker’ replaced the ageing Class 415 (4EPB) EMUs that were previously in service across the southern rail network. Construction of the units was split between three manufacturers, GEC Alsthom (Metro-Cammell) and BREL between 1991 and 1993, and ABB Rail between 1993 and 1994. Generally, the different manufacturers’ units were the same with some minor differences, which includes overhead air vents, external dot matrix displays and different traction motors.

The Networkers entered service in 1992 and were operated by British Railways until 1997, transferring to Connex, South Eastern Train and latterly to Southeastern as privatisation of Britain’s railways developed. In total, 147 four-car trainsets were built, and can today be seen on suburban routes serving the south east of England.

The Class 465/2 for Train Simulator is available in Southeastern yellow/grey livery and features passenger view and driver reminder appliance (DRA).

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Class 465 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the London-Faversham High Speed (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

The Class 465/2 is officially licensed by Southeastern.

The hardest decision is weather or not to recomend it. So read my review and decide for yourself.
The sounds are actually decent. Being a regular commuter on these trains, I find it a relistic sounding add on.
The interior is not so good. It doesn't look right. It looks like a failed representation of the real interior.
The cab view is fine. It looks like it does in real life.
The livery is good. But why was only the Yellow & Grey livery included in only the /2 variant? Surely the /9 variant of the same livery and both the /2 and /9 variants of the Blue livery could have been included, like with the 466.
Finally, the 465/2 is not the right one to go with. The /2 is in a massive minority compared to the /0 and /1's which are not in game.

So, make your own decision. I only bought it because I needed it to make scenarios with and I was interested to see how realistic a train the creators make.

Felix.

Very nice train, drives well, accelerates very quickly, although Armstrong Powerhouse is a must.

This is a train that accelerates pretty quickly, it has a passenger view and is a pretty nippy loco.
