About This Content

A mainstay of BR’s locomotive fleet in the 1990s, the Class 90 was a replacement to BR’s ageing fleet of electric locomotives, and is now available for Train Simulator in two liveries that are ideal for the Great Eastern Main Line London-Ipswich route.

In the days of British Rail, many high speed services across the UK rail network were operated by Class 90 electric locomotives, often in ‘push-pull’ formations with a Driving Van Trailer (DVT) and full consist of coaches. Following privatisation of the UK rail network, the fleet was transferred to private operators for both freight and passenger operations.

A total of 50 Class 90s were built by BREL Works in Crewe between 1987 and 1990 and were designed for a top operating speed of 110mph (180 km/h), operating from 25 kV AC overhead power and producing 5,000 bhp (3,700 kW). The models were also fitted with a Time Division Multiplier (TDM) to operate push-pull trains with a DVT, enabling fast turnaround of passenger services and removing the need for the leading locomotive to ‘run round’ its coaching stock.

After privatisation of BR in 1996, half of the Class 90 fleet were transferred to freight traffic, reclassified and modified to operate at a lower speed. The remainder of the fleet was transferred to private operators, including DB Schenker, Virgin Trains and Greater Anglia. The latter company now operates 15 Class 90s on services between London Liverpool Street, Ipswich and Norwich.

The Class 90 for Train Simulator is available in two liveries, blue/white striped and grey/white. Features of the locomotive include advanced and HUD versions, accurate performance physics, prototypical braking system, cold start option, independent guard and driver wipers, LED headlights, a MK3 coach consist and driveable Class 82 Mk3 DVT.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Greater Anglia Class 90 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Great Eastern Main Line London-Ipswich route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Made by Armstrong Powerhouse enough said. If you don't know Armstrong Powerhouse look them up and you'll see why.
12/10 No joke

Well, this train is 'meh' at best. The main problem is that it is just two of the unbranded liveries of the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 90/DVT Pack. If you buy this you get and unbranded Anglia 'One' livery and National Express East Anglia unbranded livery. If you buy the one off the AP Website, you get the two forementioned liveries but in branded liveries, but you also get other liveries like Virgin West Coast and Intercity Swallow, GNER and even SNCF. The features are pretty much the same, but the AP website version is better because it can be used over more of the UK. Overall 6.5/10.

Chances are high that if you click a button, something will happen. Apart from the heater. Good sounds, pretty much good everything. AP delivers again!

The scenarios are terrible, and it doesen't work atall for me in Quick Drive, but the actual TRAIN is superb. You also get to drive fro the MK3, but the doors don't open when I collect passengers.
overall, Very good route

Wonderfull add-on and well worth the money. Detailed cabs in both the loco and DVT. The GEML and Class 90 are a great match. Setting up the loco makes a nice change compared tomost other scenarios. The only issue I see is not being able to view inside the coaches. Apart from that, thumbs up here :)

The GEML is a very exciting rail line to run on. There are so many branch lines to explore and tons of main line running at high speed. I wish they could extend it to Norwich like the original route. I would pay a little more for that. Overall its a great route, and tons of scenarios are avalable for it. The Class 90's are full of detail, and the Advanced controls are just that, advanced, and they actually require sequences to activate, just like the real thing. That along is worth getting. Get the route on sale, you wont be disappointed.

If you have the GEML, you NEED this! The London to Ipswich line isn't complete without this but this is actually one of the better addons in it's own right anyway. The systems are fare more accurately modeled than a lot of TS addons, featuring speed control and even a choice between advance and basic versions. The model itself is really nice, featuring the familiar mk3 coaches, DVT and the class 90 loco itself. Buy it on sale or as part of a pack and you won't be disappointed.

This Class 90 is a Steam Special of the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 90. I picked the GEML Class 90 for free when I bought the GEML in a sale last year, but if you are interested in buying the Class 90 here, I recommend looking at the Armstrong Powerhouse website as well. They originally developed the Class 90 seen here, and the one here is a slightly less complex version. For an extra $5, I'd recommend the Armstrong Powerhouse. You might not get the scenerios or achievments that this one provides, but you get more bang for your buck. Still though, this is not DTG developed train, so it is much more refined, and includes more features.

AP Deserves my money. I love how almost everything on the loco works, and the fact that the DVT is the same even makes it better.

The class 90 has since moving out from GEML realms, become quite the common or garden engine because of its versatility in everything from freight, mail and even sleeper trains.

Based on the older class 86/87's, it was a close run thing that this ended up with gradual controls rather than having the tap type controls of its parentage, complete with a very good speed set control, normal and advanced modes of startup, realistic DSD add to the flavour of driving this smooth engine and with additional freeware livery packs available out there makes this a very good loco for your collection.

rather pleased with this one, although the key board assignments are rather daft....... People do have lap tops.... like me but I also still have a very very old trakball mouse which helps (if you have the AP one...... the keys are different)

A very nice loco if I do say so myself
Contains both the original Advanced version adapted from the 90 Pack available at Armstrong Powerhouse and also a HUD compatible version which is watered down to comply with DTGs requisites
Scenarios written by AP are included for both so you wont miss out whichever you choose.
If you own GEML you will need this. If you dont own GEML, you should buy this anyway.

This is an Armstrong Powerhouse addon, that was released under DTG. Highly reccomend this realistic loco, that comes with basic and advanced control methods.

This train is one of the best available off steam for the game Train Simulator 2015.
The cab detail is fantastic. Most the the switches, knobs (not the drivers), levers etc are interactable. The start up procedure is one of the most realistic in game.
The sounds are also brilliant - top quality stuff AP Waggonz!
The liveries, they are good and the 2 ones that are used.

So buy it although if you don't have any of the things in the UK Collection then buy the UK Collection.

Felix.

Ok

There is just something about this loco that makes me not wanna stop using it. I have completed all the scenarios that came with it and yet I want more. Here's what makes it probably my new favourite DLC in train sim

PROS
It was made by AP and Waggonz, which is a match made in heaven.
Horn is 2 tone and is a lot of fun to mess around with
The advanced version is easy to control.
ADV version is cool with alarms going off and such keeping the driver entertained
Very photogenic

CONS
Liveries are outdated.

This is my new favourite train in train sim and we are all hoping for some more AP/Waggonz stuff soon.

Great loco, with plenty of in-cab things to do. Also has a full start up procedure, which can be fun, as you have to set up both ends of the train before driving away. No passenger view from the train, which is a shame.

*Be aware that the scenario's are very heavy on cpu usage due to the amount of AI traffic included in the scenario's, people are reporting the level not working etc, make sure you have HD Space to be able to run this, and have a decent graphics card installed*

The levels themselves are great fun, a lot of rush hour traffic, showing how hard this section of line works during a working week.

Train is also great on QD on other lines.

Is it value for money? Yes, if your computer can handle the load.
