Requires Train Simulator 2013 (base game) to use this DLC
The superbly detailed EWS Class 66 V2.0 is now available for Train Simulator.
When British Railís freight operations were privatised in 1996, EWS brought most of BRís freight operations, including many locomotives that were unreliable or at the end of their useful life. EWS approached General Motors to seek replacements for the ageing fleet, which saw the Class 66 enter service in 1998. The model was a replacement for the Class 59, from which it used the same body shell but was updated with new internal fittings, control systems, 3,000hp engines and power units. More than 440 models were built, and seeing their success as part of the EWS fleet, many heavy freight companies ordered their own models, including Freightliner, Direct Rail Services and EWS.
The EWS Class 66 V2.0 for Train Simulator is a re-worked model of a previous version, with an updated and improved interior and re-modelled exterior. Available in EWS livery, the model features accurate brake control and centre-sprung brake lever, accurate engine and horn sounds, JGA aggregate hopper wagons and OTA timber wagons.
The model also comes as Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive it on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the West Coast Main Line North route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
Three scenarios for the West Coast Main Line North route:
Hoppers for Hunterston
Re-worked Class 66 in EWS livery
Improved cab interior
Accurate brake control and centre-sprung brake lever
Accurate engine and horn sounds

EWS Class 66 v2.0 Add-On DLC contains three scenarios for the West Coast Main Line North route, which is quite nice to be honest. The scenarios are called Hoppers for Hunterston, Leaving Law and Timber Treatment and personally I like every single one of them.
But all in all the DLC focuses on a new train - an EWS Class 66 with beautiful cab interior and a new exterior. The DLC also offers accurate horn and engine sounds - which is quite amazing, to be honest - alongside with accurate brake control and centre-sprung brake lever. You will also receive JGA hopper and OTA timber wagons.
I liked this DLC quite a lot. The simulations are interesting to see and the sounds are realistic. The graphics don't disappoint as well. In my opinion every Train Simulator 2013 owner should buy himself this DLC and atleast try it out!
