Buy Train Simulator: InterCity BR Class 89 ‘Badger’ Loco Add-On

 

About This Content

The BR Class 89 was a prototype electric locomotive that was set to transform the East Coast Main Line, and while reality went in a different direction, one cannot deny the unique and powerful design that was the “Badger”, and this one-of-a-kind loco is available to drive in Train Simulator!

With the ECML amidst major transformation in the form of electrification, British Rail were keen to source a brand new fleet of electric locomotives that would haul services under the new wires. The initial specification was drawn up by Brush at Loughborough and built at Crewe Works in 1986. Unfortunately, the fate of the type was essentially sealed in the same year, when BR changed their specification requirements after Brush had committed to building the locomotive.

The new loco rolled off the production line and was dubbed the BR Class 89, boasting 6 traction motors which would power it up to 125mph in service.

Passenger service on the ECML was rather brief, it was used on London – Leeds services for only about 3 years before a serious failure occurred, and the locomotive fell by the wayside. It was rescued by some Brush employees, and appeared at some events across the country, but the future looked bleak.

But then came privatisation, BR and its sectors had been replaced by rail franchises, and the newly formed GNER franchise purchased the sole Class 89 for its own use following a motive power shortage. It entered service once again in 1997, but history rhymed, and in 2001 a major failure put the loco out of use and this time it was for good. The 89 was once sold into preservation once again, where it remains to this day with the long-term goal of making it operational for railtour use.

While its service life was brief, and it never got the chance to become the mainline workhorse it was meant to be, the BR Class 89 found a place in many enthusiasts hearts, its unique design earned itself the nickname of “Badger”, and it offered the occasional break from the norm for spotters.

Fans of the “Badger” rejoice, as this unsung stallion can now be experienced in Train Simulator!
