Class 20 Advanced Collection

Compatibility: Train Simulator 2014

Together in one great value package - the iconic Class 20 Advanced heavy diesel in a set of popular liveries, the FEA-F RHTT (Rail Head Treatment Train) and FNA Nuclear Flask wagons. With top quality modelling, Advanced Activscript coding, exacting attention to detail throughout and 15 scenarios for a variety of routes, this is haulage heaven!

The Class 20 is an iconic diesel locomotive built in the UK and still giving sterling service all over the network. It's accompanied here by the unique RHTT (Rail Head Treatment Train) used to clear the infamous “leaves on the line” during the leaf fall season and the ultra-strong FNA Nuclear Flask wagons that are used to transport nuclear materials around the UK.

EXCLUSIVE: Joining the other Advanced locomotives in our range, the Class 20 Advanced Collection employs extensive ActivScript technology to provide many realistic and accurate operations which can be found only in Just Trains add-ons.

The Advanced range provides immersive features such as advanced operating controls, realistic systems and the distinctive 'chopper' sounds of the Class 20 Advanced recorded from the real locomotive.ActivTrain and ActivWagon smart coding technology allows the Class 20 Advanced engine to control the water spraying and sound effects of the RHTT and is also employed by the FNA and RHTT to provide an authentic red flashing tail lamp, engine headcode numbers and letters, and the FNA flasks loaded/unloaded condition!

CLASS 20 ADVANCED COLLECTION FEATURES

ADVANCED FEATURES IN DETAIL

Operational battery isolating switch

This isolates and connects the battery from the rest of the locomotive and must be operated before running the locomotive.

AWS control

This allows the operation or isolation of the AWS system and must be set to ON (Lever UP) to allow the brakes to release and allow power to flow before the locomotive can be driven. When it is set to ON you must cancel the warning buzzer and bell with the AWS cancel button or [Q] key.


LIGHT CONTROL PANELS

One located above both the left and right side cab windows - control the operation of the cab and instrument lights as well as the headcode discs and external lights on appropriate models:

SOUNDS

Class 20 engines are known as 'Choppers' due to the distinctive engine beat, and the authentic sounds in this package, recorded from a current Class 20, will give you the true Class 20 sound experience!


FNA NUCLEAR FLASK WAGON

The FNA is the UK's nuclear flask carrier and normally runs as a single or twin rake. The exterior of the wagon does not change when the wagon is loaded or unloaded as the fuel flask is securely stored inside the rectangular box in the middle of the wagon. The only giveaway as to whether a load is being carried is the presence of hazard warning diamonds on the side of the wagon. It is possible to have the FNA loaded or unloaded and the hazard diamonds shown when appropriate.

Wagon configurations

  • Both versions are supplied in clean, lightly weathered and heavily weathered versions
  • Loaded (shows hazard diamonds) 
  • Unloaded (no hazard diamonds)
  • ActivWagon smart coding adds a flashing red tail lamp

FEA-F RHTT (RAIL HEAD TREATMENT TRAIN)

The Rail Head Treatment Train is a specialist rake of FEA-F wagons with various modules made up of a generator pack, water tanks and a Sandite dispenser. These wagons are used during the leaf fall season in the UK to spray very high pressure water jets onto the rails to clear the slippery leaf mulch which is the cause of dangerous grip and braking issues. Included are highly detailed sets of the RHTT in different configurations and states of weathering from shiny and new to very dirty! They are all configured to take advantage of the ActivWagon smart-coded flashing red tail lamp.

FEA-F RHTT configurations

  • All supplied in clean, lightly weathered and heavily weathered versions
  • Water - Water - Water
  • Water - Water - Sandite 
  • Water - Generator - Water 
  • Water - Generator - Sandite
  • ActivWagon smart coding adds a flashing red tail lamp
  • Night lighting effect from Generator fluorescent tubes

"I give it 9 out of 10 on my chuffometer – well worth it... The cab is very well detailed... Externally, everything works as it should and the skins are rendered in excellent detail. I particularly like the sounds and the dynamic exhaust smoke... The cab engine and ambient sounds are great... Smoke effects from the exhausts are visible, good and are coordinated with the throttle position... The spraying effects look very realistic" Avsim.com
