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

A wonderful loco and at a good price. Ok so it isn't the most handsome loco but it gets the job done. Cab contols are very similar to what you'll find in American loco's and despite the multitude of buttons and switches not all of them are usable. Both loco and horn sounds are better than what usually pops up in most DLC's, even the horn is a two-tone so prepare to use that "B" key too folks. Acceleration can be sluggish but the pulling power is fantastic along with strong responsive brakes which need gentle application.

Best part is that not only do you get the Class 70 you also get a Class 47 in Green/Yellow scheme "Not freightliner" but to top it off you also get TWO sets of wagons to go with all this. These include the TEA and MJA wagons and 5 career/standard to keep you busy for hours.

So if your just building up your loco collection or a scenario maker then this DLC is perfect for you and quiet the bargin at $8.99.

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!
