BR 6MT Clan Class out now for Train Simulator

One of the smallest Standard Class locomotive, the 6MT, comes to Train Simulator in British Railways livery.

Ten 6MT Clan Class locomotives were built by British Railways between 1951 and March 1952 at BR’s Crewe Works, although another 15 were planned but never built following BR’s modernisation plan in the early 1950s.

Designed by Robert Riddles, the 4-6-2 Pacific tender steam locomotive was based on the Britannia Class design but incorporating a smaller boiler and various weight-saving measures to increase their route availability, including the west of Scotland.

Ultimately, the Class was deemed a failure and all 10 locomotives were withdrawn from service by June 1966. None have survived into preservation, although a private project to build the next locomotive in the class, 72010 Hengist, is currently ongoing.

The 6MT Clan Class for Train Simulator is a former Iron Horse House model, which has been updated to TS2015 standard, including new scenarios and improved exterior modelling. It is available in BR Brunswick Green livery with BR Mk1 passenger and sleeper coaches in maroon livery.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR 6MT Clan Class on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Western Lines of Scotland route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

After updating to TS 2015, I uninstalled it and all of my add on content. Wasn't thrilled with the changes made nor the bugs that cropped up after the several "updates" it had after the upgrade. Was disappointed by the sherman hill route and the lack of things to do, or the fact one started miles away from the actual yard/equipment to actually do anything on the route. Needless to say, it was a waste of money, I wont recommend this to any of my friends, nor will I reinstall the game on steam.

I picked this up back when it was still Railworks.

Since then Dovetail Games has ♥♥♥♥ed it up by 1) making it harder for people to make/install free 3rd-party content, 2) not fixing major bugs, 3) removing custom controller support (seriously wtf) and 4) treating their customers like ♥♥♥♥ in general.

I really, really, really, really, really want this game to be good. It has a few things going good for it, and most of them are the fact that it has trains. The tutorials are half-♥♥♥♥♥, I needed to look up the signaling system on Wikipedia and learned it from there instead of anywhere in the game. The sounds are pretty bad. Optimization is HORRID, though some of the trains and the scenes are really pretty. Also, the DLC is a ripoff. $40 for a route, and a couple locos/stock would be almost worth it if it came with more than 3-4 scenarios. As I look through the comments I'm seeing some suggestions for other trainsims, and I think I might want to go ahead and check them out.

I am however, going to say that despite all of its flaws, I do keep coming back to this game and driving more trains. Here's to hoping eventually the game gets better.

Oh, and one last thing. I like how driving a train is so easy, they need to have Sean Bean narrate a monologue about how hard it is to drive a train. Really, its REALLY hard guys. Boromir says so!

I recommend this game if you buy the disc at walmart or a store that sells this product. I recommend buying the 2012 version because it's cheaper than the steam version and will upgrade automatically to 2015, honestly this game is terrible in my opinion, has way too many problems with the AI system and there is not many features either. The DLC is also overpriced, and some of them don't even work properly. DTG in my opinion only cares about money and not about the people who play their game, they bring out all these overpriced DLC's and not focus on fixing the bugs in the game. They just want people to buy their trains and once they have a lot of people buy it they update the game, only to find out that the update is no different and all the bugs are still there. Microsoft Train Simulator is a whole lot better than this in many ways and other Train Sims aswell. This game is good and all but I would it's not worth buying for 40$. I would say it's probably worth 15$-20$ because of all the problems and besides, they have DLC. The game itself is 40$ and when you buy a route, it's like another 40$, and for a train itself, it would be 20$. That would be very expensive, so if you are very sure you want to buy a game that the developers rarely update and with many unbelievable problems that just ruin the experience then I recommend buying the 2012 disc version at a store like walmart or target, if not buy it online, it's very cheap, about 20 bucks or less. Once you buy it, it will upgrade to the 2015 version.

i have played this for a long time now but i wouldn't reccomend it based on the way they handle content.
they don't fix bugs and nearly all the content is expensive dlc. (one of which i bought lost all it's career missions on an update..)
so it's rather niche and you need to be a serious anorak to play the 125 minute long scenarios that you could play by setting the accelerator and putting the kettle on while it trundles down the line for an hour.
it's got its good points but i don't feel they are weighing up the bad points.

This game is far from realistic, i got it on sale, and still feel robbed, 3 routes and a handfull of locomotives, their "shunting" duties are a bad joke at best, and to get any real enjoyment from the game you must spend a few HUNDRED dollars!

the controls are garbage
the physics are crap
the slack action is non existant
the time tables for missions are insanely short
the restrictions on speed are worse than those of real life (you get +3 mph here in the states before your in trouble)
last i checked, when i put my lead end consist into Dynamic brakes, the locomotive didnt go inside of the one behind it.
one brake system is entirely missing, (actuation)
the brake pipe resivoir acts way too fast, (it can take a full minute to get cars to go into a 20psi set)
the sounds are horrid.
and finally WHERE THE HELL IS MY CONDUCTOR! shoulnt he be calling out signals, slow orders, speed restrictions, throwing switches, and so forth?

for people who say "we are railfans" let me say this, i have met 10 year olds who know more about trains than the developers of this game do.

For starters, let me say that I'm a veteran of the old Kuju/Railsimulators days. I've never been professionally associated with Kuju, RailSimulator or Dovetails games. I'm critical of them when I feel the need to be.

As a base driving game, TS2015 is a fair simulator. It does have it's problems and glitches but not as many as some are keen to point out.

The opening menu's are ok, pretty much self explanitory. One small problem I do see in the menu's is the confusing way of trying to select what to drive and where to drive and the lack of selectable filters attached.

The Academy(Tutorial) is a new addition to the sim. It's a good idea and a good starting place for beginners, although a little rough around the edges. This feature could include so much more and run smoother as far as transition between tutorials is concerned.

Once you head out into scenario driving, the sim is a class above. Much improvement has been made to the enviroment over the years, too much in the eyes of some who have struggled to keep up with sim's technology over the years, although lighting, shadows and weather can be excellent on the right PC. Driving is easy. Out of the box, the sim offers good variety and, since the inclusion of Steam Workshop, expands this variety even further. Career scenario and points scoring is a real bug bare and a negative in the sim for me. A simulator is exactly what it's supposed to be. You simulate the operation of the real world counterpart, you don't ask a driver to adhere to unrealistic timing to score points and head a leaderboard in real life.

A massive plus in my eyes is the Sandbox World Editor. The ability to create your own worlds whether it be your favourite or local route or something fictional that you have had in your head since you were a kid. The editor itself does have quite a steep learning curve, although, even the most inexperienced beginner can have a length of track laid and be running a Loco on it in no time. The learning curve is when you expand on this and create more and more complex layouts. I have found Sandbox modes in other popular simulators (not just trains) where the learning curve is very, very much steeper, especially for a beginner.

DLC seems to be a contencious issue with some and confusing for others outside of the sim. There is a great variety and to buy it all would require the cost of a decent second hand car. The point however, is you don't have to buy any of it to run the sim. I look at it just as I would a model railway. I get the basic oval track from Hornby in a box with the Flying Scotsman and a few coaches. I can run it to my hearts content. If I wish to buy some extra track and create a bigger route for my '4472', I can do. If I wish to have the variety of a Class 45 Diesel instead of an A3 Steam loco, I can buy one from the model shop, I don't have to buy the big brute of an American loco sat next to it on the model shop's shelf if I don't want to. You can expand as much and as little as you want. It's your choice.

Now this game, Oh god this game, is the biggest disapointment in my life. ( even more than Total war: Rome II)

Lets start with DLC, 3000$+ worth! So the base game is 30$ (I believe) and it comes with 3-4 trains and one route, I was lucky enough to have bought A bundle pack worth 70$ that was on sale for 50% off, wich added 5-6 more trtains and 2 routes, oh joy :( In comparison with Trainz (2006) was 40$ at release and came with 400 trains and 40+ routes, sooo yea.

Now graphics, these graphics are the best in train simulation, but they dont have any "Low" options, so hat I can play it with more than JUST 8 FRICKIN FPS! it is stupid! and my computer specs are pretty high!

Graphics: 5ghz AMD RADEON 5000

so yea.

Now the gameplay is very, VERY, slow. So unlike trainz you dont have to switch points manually and you cant control multiple trains at once. The routes themselves on this game (atleast the ones I have (London, Germany and NY)) are very boring, they a completely flat and straight, so they are pretty much chanlengless. THe physcs are unrealistic and the HUD is AWFUL!

So I would not recomend this AT ALL.

I have scored it this way

DLC FREE: 1/10

Over all 11/30

Bought it when it was still Railworx 2. Game still feels the same regardless of its countless updates. Back when I bought it it had about 7 routes that came with it. Now in the latest (2015) version some of the routes it originaly came with are removed and only available again for purchase.

One of the worst simulators ever. :( The game itself cost a fortune, overpriced DLCs (they are worth only the 1/4 of their actual price). Graphics and models are okay but not developer friendly. You need to be a programmer if you want to build a real loco or route. Lightning system also sucks. I cant see anything in the night even with with full bright lights. This game is for rich nerds..

I have no problem shelling out 50-60-70 euros for a quality addon in FSX or DCS but the price tag for TS addons is just ridiculously high and nothing justify that except Dovetail business plan.

Game itself is pretty overpriced. Also the vehicle physics are bit out, even there are Traction effort curves (of which I personally think at least one of them is not working at all). DLC are overpriced, good time to buy any of them is low sale before Christmas time or so, when their prices are lowered. And best of all is all that free stuff, e.g. czechoslovakian locos 151 and 350, austrian locos OBB 1142 etc...
