Produced by Metro-Cammell in Birmingham, the Class 101 was considered to be one of the most successful first generation diesel multiple units ever produced by British Rail, and is now available for Train Simulator in familiar BR liveries.
The Class 101 was one of the largest classes of first generation DMUs, built between 1956 and 1959 and lasting well into the 21st Century. Their top speed of 70mph saw the units used mainly on suburban and branch line passenger workings, and such was their popularity and relatively late withdrawal from revenue-earning service, many have been preserved on the UK?s heritage railways.
The Class 101 for Train Simulator is available in British Rail?s blue and blue/grey liveries and features realistic manual gear change, fully detailed cab and control panel, in-cab lighting and an upgrade to TSX standard features.
The DMU is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Class 101 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam.
