About This Content

The modern, dual-voltage Class 319 EMU is here for Train Simulator in the familiar First Capital Connect livery as seen on Thameslink services out of London.

Typical of EMUs built in the 1980s, the Class 319 was built by BREL York between 1987 and 1990 for north-south cross-London services from Bedford to Brighton, entering revenue-generating service in 1988. The four-car units were able to run on both overhead electrification – on lines north of Farringdon - and third rail pick-up, for lines south of Farringdon.

Two sub-classes were originally built and over the years, the 86 trainsets have been refurbished, creating five sub-classes in total, of which four still exist. Following privatisation of British Rail, the fleet was divided between two operators, Thameslink and Connex South Central; in 2006, First Capital Connect took over the Thameslink franchise and now operates Class 319 units on Bedford to Brighton services.

The Class 319 EMU for Train Simulator is available in First Capital Connect livery and includes a full four-car unit, comprising DTSO, MSO and TSO vehicles. Features of the model include passenger view, fully detailed cab interior, cab lighting, working cab fan, opening cab windows, two-tone horn, cab window blind, day/night running light selection, window reflections in passenger compartments, and driver vigilance device (which can be enabled and disabled).

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the First Capital Connect Class 319 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the London-Brighton route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).


Four scenarios for the London-Brighton route:
  • Training: Class 319 Simple Controls
  • Training: Class 319 Expert Controls
  • City Flyer
  • Coast Flyer

More scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game. Train Simulator’s Steam Workshop scenarios are free and easy to download, adding many more hours of exciting gameplay. With scenarios being added daily, why don’t you check it out now!

For £4.79 on sale I decided to wing it and give the Class 319 a try. The train is decentt to drive but once again the sounds are recycled from the Class 455. Get the AP pack alongside this!

If you have the London to Brighton route it includes 2 new scenarios but none for the Chatham Main Line or South London Network! Unfortunately the scenarios on the workshop require you have the London-Faversham, South London Line and Class 378 packs additionally so for some that will be a disappointment!

Overall, 6/10 for the standard DLC. 8.5/10 for the DLC + Armstrong Powerhouse pack.

A welcome addition to the list of available assets suitable for London To Brigton route.

If you play or make scenarios for this route this DLC is essential ... however you need to "need" this product for it to be worth buying, If you are not interested in stocking routes prototypically its not worth your time and money for the following reasons:

1, As with most recent releases this DLC is crippled with only one skin (the now defunct FCC) so you will need to search for suitable skins from third parties and the community to make use of it in any other era, DTG promises of addtional skins available via marketplace (namely NSE) were only honored months after they were announced and long after a number of high quality freeware skins were made available by the community which make the workshop reskins redundant.
2, The 319 has a number of overtly obvious bugs that will make you question if it was tested at all before release, the most obvious and game breaking is the AWS incorrectly functioning.
3, The 319 also has a number of corners cut: no key bindings for a number of cab functions including important ones like DRA, copy-n-pasted sounds mosly from the class 455 and the inability to switch power collection modes.

The good news is there is a fix however you need to factor the cost into the total cost of buying this product: the 319 sound pack from Armstrong Powerhouse, addresses the bugs and bridges all the cut corners such as the missing key bindings ...

I'm going to mark this DLC as not reccommended in its current form, on its own its not fit for purpose ... however if you are interested in the London To Brighton route and you are prepared to do the legwork and invest in addtional third party products to bring the 319 to a acceptable standard then its an essential addition to your stock ...

As much as I recommend buying this, buying the Armstrong Powerhouse sound pack is a must in my opinion, especially to rid this of its awful default sounds. Also note that the TSO is back to front on the quick drive consists.

Have been on these EMUs about a million times IRL and this is a very detailed replica, but just remember to get the sound pack from Armstrong Powerhouse

The Class 319, the future of British engineering.

With its rocket-like acceleration and its near silent motors, this is the most modern and sophisticated commuter train in Britain.

DTG really captured this elegant multiple unit and brought it to life in Train Simulator.
If you need a train that has the acceleration of a metro train plus the capacity of a mainline train, this is the train to go. It even has the bonus of being virtually silent. Nearly impossible to hear from the inside.


What's that? The train was built in 1987? The real life acceleration isn't as fast as it in game? You can actually hear the train in real life? I'm shocked.


8/10 for the model.
2/10 for the sounds.
1/10 for the physics.
3/10 for the effort.

Overall: 3.5/10 (Typical of these first party addons)

Update: Just read the Positive reviews and most of them lack any mentioning of these issues. It's borderline scamming, except DTG didn't do it, the fanboys did.

I hope you're happy that I gave money to your lord, saviour and favourite company.

Disappointed with this DLC. It looks very promising, and the model along with the livery is spot-on, but every single minute, the alarm thing keeps going off, I kid you not, every MINUTE, which is very frustrating when in an outside view. They could've at least made it so you could hear it outside the cab view. And the sounds, EURGH, just buy an AP sound pack for this if you ever buy this.

I have riden class 319's for years IRL, so I can say this addon is modeled very well to the real thing the passenger view is spot on and looks like the inside of the real thing. the trains simulater the real life function very well like the AWS start up sequence and the DSD. The sounds are not very acurrate though so i would recomend getting the AP Sound Pack that greatly improves the train
This is a must if your're simulating the commuter services in london you must get this DLC its worth every penny.

I can only fault this unit regarding the sounds. The horn is recycled from the Class 465/466 Networkers, both of which I have and I also don't know why the AWS is not functioning. Other than that, the Class 319 is an exciting train to drive and makes an ideal addition to the Ai traffic if you want to make scenarios for London to Brighton. Despite the add-on's flaws, I would still put it under the recommend tag.

Since the recent hotfix, this DLC has been dumbed down and really unbearable to do anything with now. Good as AI, but nothing else.

Class 319 Review:

+Decent cab view, most features simulated and reasonable textures
+Lovely modes, the livery may already be defunct, but it is still well modelled and detailed
+Passenger view is good, someone even left their book behind
+Sounds are ok, not wonderful but easily fixed by the AP sound pack
+Great for London to Brighton and the South London Network

-Acceleration is to quick for a 319
-Only 2 scenarios, a bit of a shame for an otherwise fairly good train

Excellent train, let down again by poor physics and few scenarios. Get the Armstrong Powerhouse sound pack for this! It fixes the physics, as well as giving it a dsd, opening windows, driver only operation and, of course, wonderful sounds. However, this is still worth it in a sale. Also, I bought it in the Commuter Europe Collection, which comes with London to Brighton, the class 421, DB BR423 and Munich to Augsberg, for only £29.99 (or less in a sale).

A varied loco, with wonderful textures but frankly space age physics.


- You can't change the destation of the train
- Sounds are abit rubbish in my opinein
- Rather get the Armstong Powerhouse class 319
- In the Midland Mainline you would get this train in the midland mainline!

The FCC Class 319 is nice train to drive on any electrified route for TS. The controls in the cab are mostly functional and make it a joy to drive. There though a few issues. 1. It has not come with a new update for Thameslink, understandable seeing as Govia will not give the licence. 2. There are only are AC and DC versions not dual power version consists as per reality. 3. The destination blinds are not changeable. But these can be overlooked as it is still an excellent train to own. Buy it in the Commuter Europe pack for better value. Get the AP sound pack with correct sounds and driver-only operation, wheelslip prevention and destination blinds that are changeable and in-game changeable power source.

Although I am more of a diesel man to be honest. This one is my favourite EMU. I really do like the Class 319 units and this pack I picked up in a bundle deal, so I bagged a bargain here. Depending on your needs or what routes you own. If you are on a budget then either wait for the Steam sales or go for the "Europe Commuter Collection" bundle as you get the London to Brighton to run this unit on as well as other bundled up DLC as well. The sounds are so-so but the unit is great fun to drive and would be perfect with the Armstrong Powerhouse sound set. I personally enjoy this unit and it is very quick off the mark as well. The brakes are just right as well as they are not spongy or too hard like I have experienced with some other units that I have driven in the game.

Overall Rating: 10/10.
