Buy Train Simulator: BR Class 35 Loco Add-On


About This Content

The mixed-traffic Class 35 diesel-hydraulic locomotive is now available for Train Simulator in BR green livery.

The hydraulic transmission fitted to the Class 35 locomotives gave them their affectionate nickname of ‘Hymeks’ and, at the time they were built, were the most powerful diesel-hydraulic locomotive operating with a single engine. They were popular sights at the head of semi-fast and freight trains across the Western Region of the British rail network during the 1960s.

A total of 101 models were produced by Beyer Peacock between 1961 and 1964, although their operational life was relatively short – withdrawals began in 1971 and were completed by 1975. A total of four locomotives have survived into preservation.

The Class 35 for Train Simulator is available in British Railways green livery and is a former Iron Horse House model, which has been updated to Train Simulator standard, including new scenarios and improved exterior modelling. Also included are BR Mk1 passenger coaches in chocolate and cream livery.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR Class 35 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for The Riviera Line: Exeter-Paignton route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).


Four scenarios for The Riviera Line: Exeter-Paignton route:
  • Training: Class 35 Simple Controls
  • Training: Class 35 Expert Controls
  • Stormy Day on the Riviera
  • Special Service to Kingswear

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!

As with just about all DTG's trains and releases, the cab and details inside and out are always pleasing. However, the sounds are less than adequate. I know this would mean getting someone out there to record the sounds like their partner does so while this may not be feasible or too costly then that should be reflected in the prices of their trains. Because, guess what? You'll be spending even more money getting them to sound right, so factor in an additional £4.99 or $10AUD again to your purchase. It's just too much. I've stopped buying since the last sale, the game has cost me more than a real train set would and I can't resell it! Really!

It's 35 years+ since I last saw these running near my house, but this seems to have the essence of what I remember.

Visual modelling is rather good, with the exhaust plume being both dynamic (to a degree) and not too prominent, and the marker lights and illuminated number blinds have a realistic low brightness in the day. The cab is nicely drawn with realistic looking dials and has a gimmick allowing you to play around with moving a Cornish pasty from the heater to the dash board. Loco sounds are above average for DTG with flange squeal, brake squeal, nice B0-B0 clickity-clack, separate high/low horn and different in-cab and outside sounds. The included coaches have less good sounds.

A good straightforward diesel, without advanced features.

Very dissapointing. Engine sound is a class 37! Hello.. this is a Maybach engine. Good model, but if I had known this I would not have purchased. Zero out of ten I'm afraid.

Only recommended in the DLC sales I'm afraid.

The good points:
The model is nice looking and looks well made. I do like the cabview including the gimmick pie in the oven that gives this pack a bit of a sense of humour in my opinion. There is a couple of career scenarios included and a set of brown and cream mk1 carriages to match the Class 35 Hymek. But that is where the fun factors end with this pack which is a shame as this can be a great add-on if the following issues are corrected which I have covered below.

The bad points:
The handling is a bit unpredictable as its "all or nothing" when applying the brakes on the locomotive and this can mean the difference between stopping at the station successfully or overshooting the platform. The brakes do need to be tweaked so that the brake force isn't erratic. But the tipping point for me and this issue is what really kills the enjoyment of this add-on is the "Hybrid" sounds because the sounds that come with this locomotive are terrible and sound absolutely nothing like a real Class 35 Hymek when it chugs along with that Maybach musical note from its supercharger. The sounds are like a hybrid of a Class 20 and a Class 37 remixed and blended into each other and its not suitable for this locomotive. There is really no excuse because there is a couple of these actual locomotives in preservation such as the East Lancashire Railway and perhaps a recording session should be arranged so that this pack has some authentic sounds from the real locomotive as intended.

The full price is £11.99 isn't worth it due to the poor handling and the terrible hybrid sounds. So its only recommended in the Steam sales for the time being and would make a nice AI train. I do hope that the creator of this pack will record some proper Hymek sounds and make an update in the future to an otherwise very good and well made Class 35 locomotive. So there is lots of potential to make this into a great pack if these issues are addressed.

Overall Rating: 5/10.

Maybe it's not the most detailed loco you can buy as a DLC here.
The textures are quite ok, sounds are rather poor but for sure no other locos have an oven on its board with the food inside, and you can even operate it :)
It makes this add-on worth to buy, of course not for the full price ;)
