Acerca deste conteúdo

The Class 87 was the last purpose built electric locomotive for the West Coast Main Line following electrification of the line north of Crewe, and now you can take control of British Rail’s flagship electric model in Train Simulator.

Based on its predecessor, the Class 86, 36 models of the Class 87 were built at BREL Crewe Works between 1973 and 1975. Similar in appearance to the Class 86, there were some external and a number of internal differences between the two locomotives – the Class 87 was fitted with new bogies and multiple working equipment, two cab windows instead of three, headcode boxes were removed and the engine improved to give 5,000hp to improve performance on the hilly West Coast route.

With a top speed of 110mph (180km/h), the Class 87 was used mainly on express passenger services for British Rail, although there were occasional times when they were put into service on freight trains and even the Royal Train. In the late 1970s, BR named the entire fleet of Class 87s, many receiving names previously carried by ‘Britannia’ Class steam locomotives or town, cities and counties along the West Coast.

During the 1980s, all Class 87/0s were transferred from British Rail to InterCity whilst 87101 (which carried a different specification to the rest of the Class) was transferred to Railfreight Distribution. Post-privatisation, many Class 87s passed to Virgin Trains where they continued to operate West Coast Main Line express services, whilst others were transferred to Cotswold Rail, Direct Rail Services and First GBRf.

Following the fleet’s withdrawal in the late 2000s, 27 locomotives were sold to the Bulgarian Railway Company and converted to run on the national network. However, due to a downturn in railway traffic around the country, only 14 were eventually exported. Three Class 87s have also been preserved, two on static display at the National Railway Museum, York and the Railway Heritage Centre, Crewe, with the other used on the occasional charter train by the AC Locomotive Group.

The Class 87 for Train Simulator is available in InterCity Executive silver and grey livery and features nameplates, BR Mk3 passenger coaches in InterCity Executive livery with passenger view, working tap changer power control with functioning power gauges, two-tone horn and cab lighting.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR Class 87 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the West Coast Main Line North route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

To acquire this locomotie means to enjoy even more driving in the West Coast Mainline's two sections "Over Shap" and "North" This is one of the most demanding locomotive to drive - manage traction, see ahead, know the track...
A must have for anyone who believes is experienced enough and wants a good challenge.

A very nice locmotive add-on for a great price, the Class 87 sounds great, especially after I heard one for real at Edinburgh on the Caledonian Sleeper, the game has caught the sound very well, although the horn isn't amazing as you can't control the two tones independently as you can with some other loco add-ons. The tap changer system in place of a regulator can take a couple of attempts to master but once you work it out it provides a fun challenge to drive. Very nice addition to the WCML North route!

This is a locomotive which will get you hooked. This is not a thrust-forward-and-go - no that sounds wrong... lets try that again - This not just a throttle-up-and-go loco, it's a tap changer which requires a bit of skill and concentration for that true driving finesse.

The default sounds are OK; but for real audible excellence, go to Armstrong Powerhouse and buy the 86/87 sound pack. All in all, fantastic locomotive and in my top three add-ons!

Good fun use it regular, enjoy it on SHAP and WCML, fun to drive, always something to be done with the tap system.

Note: Engine takes a little bit of skill in driving dept, once you get it mastered it's a ton of fun....

*Also note must be driven in expert mode* (easy to use once mastered)

I bought this one because I worked on the real ones occasionally along with quite a few other AC Locos. Ok its a simulator, but all things considered its pretty good, and value for money (very unusual for this game!!) Would I recommend it to others? Yes I would...... However, if you really need to be pedantic then get the AP sound pack...... if you want to buy a ready to run add on that works, is realistic, good fun, a challenge to drive but with slightly iffy sounds....... then this one is for you....... Love it.
