About This Content

In 1999, after acquisition by FirstGroup, Great Western Trains applied a revised livery to their existing stock without the need for repainting! This involved the use of vinyl decals applied to the lower sides of the HSTs. The existing green and ivory colouring remained but the decal featured a central gold stripe and a series of parallel green lines which had the appearance of fading the ivory into the green. This early green and gold livery was referred to as the “fag packet” (British slang for cigarette packet) livery due to its similarity to certain cigarette packets of the time, and this is the version recreated in this add-on. The “Night Riviera”, a sleeper service from Paddington to Penzance, retained the green and gold livery until 2007..

This is a good reskin of the HST. I accept that this was made in the days before marketplace. Here's my opinion in detail...

PROS -
Cheap, cheap cheap cheap cheap!
The livery looks fantastic in whatever quality your settings are on.
Looks very at home on Rivera and GWML

CONS -
Um... Lemme think,
Nope

In conclusion. This loco, for some reason (this is rare) gets a 10/10 for me.

Nice train and at 90% off ($0.49 Total) during the steam summer sale, it is extremely cheap and totally worth it. Note that the scenarios are for the Great Western Main Line (As of when I am writing this, it does not say that in the description)

Ah, this takes me back...

The infamous First Great Western '♥♥♥-Packet' livery is what I can remember seeing as I grew up whenever I was around the GW Mainline - I prefer it to the so-called 'Barbie' livery that was adopted in later years. And driving it in Train Simulator? Well, it's no different to driving the standard HST, albeit you have a Guard's Whistle sound after you pick up passengers. However the 'First' logo does look like a sticker, but this is only a minor complaint. It makes up for it with the price, as you get 3 scenarios to try and master. As with the NSE Class 47, I recommend this for anyone starting out in Train Simulator, wishing to start buying DLC.

Again costs £3 to purchase, it's not worth, not buying it. If they're having a sale and this loco is on discount, you'd have to be daft, not to try it... Drive this regular from Preston to Glasgow.

*Please note, this loco does not have a passenger view*

It was 74p and I had money left over. Get it on sale, and it's nothing.

Ugly paint, but it was dirt cheap at a sale. Paid 20p for it!

Pros:
- price!
- better in-cab sounds than the standard HST

Cons:
- still no cab lighting
- no passenger view
- inadequate point rewards for completing scenario objectives. no way to get a gold medal in any of them

I think it's more than OK for the price. If you liked the standard HST, then you will like this addon as well.

It's a bit cheeky that RSC (Now DTG) would release a payware reskin, especially when all the other addons at the time were released with several different liveries.You would think that RSC would improve on the sounds and the modelling of this reskin, considering the Kuju HST was already 3 years old at that time, but of course they didn't.

On to the quality of the skin itself, quite frankly it's rubbish. The colours are a bit off, compared to images of the train in real life, the colours are a bit too saturated on the TS version. Furthermore the green on the TS version is way too dark compared to the real life livery. The First logo on the TS version has a black background on it, I'm assuming RSC forgot to remove it before selling this to the general public, despite the fact that it is an incredibly obvious mistake.

Despite the fact that the mistakes are so blatantly obvious, the fanboys cannot admit that RSC has made a mistake. I feel like I'm the only sane person in the world sometimes.

Avoid at all costs.
