About This Content

The Class 70 is one of the most distinctive UK diesel locomotive designs of all time, thanks to its US origins and safety features, and now this superbly-detailed loco comes to Train Simulator in correct Freightliner livery!


Developed jointly by Freightliner Ltd and General Electric, the Class 70 was built specifically as a heavy freight locomotive for Freightliner operations in the UK. Built by General Electric in Erie, Pennsylvania, it has a 3,690-horsepower diesel engine, though is still able to meet European Union regulations for diesel engine emissions. However, the Class 70’s most distinctive feature must be its exterior cab design which is immediately recognizable. This is a result of built-in crash protection to protect train crews in the event of a collision, and in fact the entire cab was designed with considerable input from freight train drivers.


With a highly realistic driver’s cab including working instrument and information displays, and sounds recorded from the real thing, the Class 70 is as up-to-date as they come and a great addition to your fleet.


Class 70 diesel locomotive in Freightliner Powerhaul livery with accurate sounds recorded from a real Class 70. Operating features include dynamic braking, moveable sun blinds and swiveling seat, cab lighting, independent wiper settings, and dynamic display screens with readouts for reverser position, parking brake on, sander on, wheel slip, brake pressure, engine rpm, tractive force and speed.

  • Class 47 diesel locomotive in green&yellow livery

Once again another top notch add-on. However I feel it has only received such a possitive feedback because of the sounds which of note were recorded and produced by Oovee, not RSC. The cab is above my expectations for some of RSC's recent models, making it a pleasure to drive. If you like playing with the horn then I'm sure you'll get carried away with this one, I don't normally toot the horn all the time but this one sounds so prototypical that even I can't resist!

Lately I've been trying to get more American DLC, but this one I couldn't resist! This is a fantastic model!

Its got a great paint job, that looks very prototypical! A great cab, which is above and beyond for DTG! The sounds are also GREAT, because they are produced by OOVEE! Also, this pack includes a set of TEA and MJA wagons, which you can enjoy with ANY engine!

All in all, this is a great model, and is a must-have, even if you don't usually buy British DLC!

Whilst the real life counterpart is certainly not going to win any trophies for its looks or style. The 3D version in this pack is absolutely superb in terms of the accuracy and the "feel" of the prototype. The cab of this locomotive is quite straightforward to navigate and there is no need to pan the camera around much or use the in-game HUD controls because everything such as the power lever, the brakes etc is all located right in front of you! The sounds seem quite appealing and although I have not heard a real Class 70 in the flesh powering up. The sounds here in the pack do have a very nice beefy note to them and being a fan of GE locomotives in general. I do like how this locomotives sounds and the two-tone horn is playable via the Space and the "B" keys in any combination that the user wishes just like the driver can in the real world which is another positive I like about this pack. This Class 70 add-on comes with a generous amount of wagons which are perfect if you are into making your own scenarios for Train Simulator. They are a Class 47, TEA 100-tonne tankers, The MJA hopper wagons and some Intermodal container wagons which is more than enough to get you started with making your own consists in a scenario project.

Overall Rating 10/10.
