About This Content

The flagship locomotive for the East Coast Main Line, the Class 91, speeds into Train Simulator in its original InterCity Swallow livery, complete with Mk4 coaches and Driving Van Trailer.

The Class 91 was built as a development of the Advanced Passenger Train (APT) project, which was abandoned during the 1980s, and was introduced in 1988 with the overhead electrification of the East Coast Main Line; the first Class 91 to work a passenger service was on 3 March 1989 with a rake of Mk3 coaches and a converted Class 43 power car acting as a Driving Van Trailer (DVT).

The locomotive’s body shells were built of an all-steel construction, and unusually were fitted with body mounted motors to reduce the unsprung mass and hence track wear at high speeds. Much of the engineering was derived from research and operational experience garnered during development of the APT.

Given the auxiliary name of InterCity 225, a nod to their designed operating speed of 225 km/h (140mph), the Class 91 exclusively works flagship high speed passenger services on the East Coast Main Line between London King’s Cross and Edinburgh Waverley, leading a rake of nine Mk4 passenger coaches and a Mk4 DVT. Realistically, services only run at 125mph (201 km/h) due to the track infrastructure, but occasionally do reach their designed top speed to make up time.

The Class 91 for Train Simulator is available in InterCity Swallow livery as carried between 1988 and 1996, and features two fully working driving cabs, complete with DRA, AWS and vigilance device reset, and cruise control. The Mk4 DVT also includes a fully driveable cab, giving complete push-pull capabilities to the train. A full rake of nine Mk4 coaches in accompanying InterCity Swallow livery replicate the full InterCity 225 service, complete with passenger view.

Please note: the ‘blunt end’ cab of the Class 91 is accessible from the main Class 91 cab by pressing the left and right arrow keys.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the InterCity Class 91 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the East Coast Main Line: London-Peterborough route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Very realistic, all the sounds are tip-top from the Horns to the air discharges and the motor sound of the 91 itself!

I love the loco but was disappointed when I couldn't turn off the driver vigilance device. I haven't played with it since and will not purchase any more locos featuring a dvd. It seems to me, it would be a simple matter to introduce an additional feature that would enable one to simply cancel said device. Until the matter is taken care of, I don't recommend you buy it for the time being. I'm a regular consumer of DTG products and am generally pleased with my purchases. This is the first time I post a negative comment about a product as I don't like complaining about trifles. (blackraeven7)

The DVD is so annoying, but with a Third Party Reskin, this is the real deal, and completes the missing gap of the ECMLS. We still need the Class 317 though, then this is a complete route. (Correct me if I am wrong.)

The model is quite nice. It looks detailed enough and is correct for the time period (pre-refurbishment). I think it is a shame it only comes in intercity livery, since all other stock is set in a different time period, but DTG has explained that this is due to licensing issues. The cab looks great (although it is the refurbished cab, which doesn't fit the intercity livery and unrefurbished exterior) and it is really nice that they managed to incorporate the blunt end cab. The position of the camera in cab and the windscreen wiper make it really difficult to see signals and read speed signs when it is raining. There is a passenger view, but the passenger compartment is, like the cab, the refurbished version.

The feature list is quite complete. The more or less standerd features like DRA, DVD and speed set are included as well as some more uncommon features like ETS controls. Seems quite promising, but sadly DTG have seem to forgotten how to implement most features. The speed set doesn't actually get the unit up to the set speed and for some reason it resets to 0 every time you use the brakes. DVD reset and AWS acknowledge are mapped to the same button, which is a shame. The AWS sunflower is bugged. When the AWS alarms is acknowledged, the sunflower comes on only to turn off again a split second later. There are seperate controls for cab-, instrument- and clip board lights, but there are no seperate headlight settings for day and night running.

I was pleasantly surprised with the sounds when I first put the reverser into the forward position. I immediately recognized the very distinct class 91 roar. However as soon as I set off that surprise turned into disappointment. There are no motor sounds an no bogie run sounds. Lack of these sounds removes any sense of speed and completely ruins immersion for me. After a while I noticed that the fan sounds I initially thought were excellent are actually bugged. You can hear two sets of fans coming on, but one fan sound only loops once.

In conclusion I think the class 91 is a huge disappointment. I can't recommend it at full price and I only see use for it as AI and not as player consist.
