About This Content
Network SouthEast (NSE) was one of three passenger sectors Created by British Rail in 1982. NSE principally operated commuter trains in the London area and inter-urban services in densely populated South East England, although the network reached as far west as Exeter. Before 1986, the sector was known as London & South Eastern.
Network Southeast was finally dissolved with the privatisation of the network in 1994. The last passenger train still in NSE livery was lost on 15 September 2007, when a Class 465, 465193, the last still in NSE colours, was sent off to receive its new Southeastern livery.
The BR Class 47 diesel locomotive, originally known as the Brush Type 4, was built between 1962 and 1968, making the type around 20 years old when Network Southeast was created. Still, these 2,500bhp+ locomotives formed a major part of passenger and freight services at the time and continued to do so even after the eventual demise of Network Southeast in 1994.
The Network Southeast Class 47 Add-On includes:
- Class 47 locomotive in original Network Southeast livery
- Class 47 locomotive in revised Network Southeast livery

Heading Southeast – Career System Scenario
Drive a Network Southeast Class 47 on a simple stopping run from Oxford to Reading.
Slow from Slough – Career System Scenario
It’s a very foggy night and your task tonight is to take a NSE Class 47 back to Paddington. This is the final journey using the NSE livery for this train before heading to the depot for a repaint. There should be low levels of traffic, but there are engineering works so it won't be a clear run. Starting from Slough, you stop every station. Good luck!
Twisted Rush Hour – Career System Scenario
The rush hour is underway this spring evening, and your passengers want a smooth and timely journey home. There is much traffic on the line so delays are possible.
