Class 153 & Totham (Boxed)

Compatibility: RailWorks 3

21 June 2013 - An Upgrade (132MB) is available to add the TS2013 Quick Drive facility to the Class 153 DMU Advanced locomotive and TS2013 lighting and occlusions for tunnels, bridges and buildings to the Totham route.

Class 153 DMU

The Class 153 DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) is a common sight around the UK, picking up and delivering many thousands of passengers every day of the year. Being a self-contained unit with an under-slung diesel engine it has no need for a separate locomotive and is therefore economical in operation.

Featuring unique and exclusive Just Trains developed ActivScript features such as operating destination blinds and operational DRA (Drivers Reminder Appliance) this high quality rendition of the Class 153 DMU is the one to drive!

First introduced in 1991, these distinctive units have a driver's cab at each end to allow the driver to change ends and drive in the opposite direction without the need to turn the unit around. The 153 DMU features gangway door connections that allow persons to walk between the units whilst they are moving when two units are coupled together.

Totham route

Totham is an all-new UK route of around 30 miles in total length, giving you a great range of tasks and a variety of interesting places to visit.

Included with the route are seven custom built scenarios; five of these use the default RailWorks stock, and the other two require add-on stock.

Totham is designed to give you the best of all rail simulation worlds, with halts and stations for intense passenger services and Intermodal container and freight depot marshalling yards for freight operations. If you want heavy haulage, then there are two coal-powered merry-go-round power stations as well as a nuclear power plant on the Axford branch line which requires high security deliveries. A mail depot and car terminal ensure that there is always lots to do!

  • Working DRA (Drivers Reminder Appliance) using ActivScript functionality. Use the DRA to prevent the throttle from being applied at a station stop

"In my opinion, one of the best routes available for Railworks 2!... One of the things that really impressed me was that of the design of the complex road systems and bridges that are adjacent to the actual routes... I have been looking over this add-on for almost 3 weeks and I still have yet to see everything and every time I think I have seen it all, I go back and find something new!... Class 153 and Totham is a fantastic package and like I said before, it is a must have for just about any train sim user as it adds both a complex Engine and a versatile route that will keep you train simulating for hours"
