RailWorks 3: Class 325 DLC
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
The Class 325 is very distinctive with its bright red-and-yellow livery and its dual voltage pick-ups. Now available for Train Simulator 2012, the Class 325 EMU mail train includes opening side shutters, parcel trolleys and dual-voltage pick-ups like the real thing.
Looking like a freight version of the familiar ‘Networker’ classes, the Class 325 is a purpose-built electric mail train capable of running on 25,000-volt AC overhead lines or 750-volt DC third-rail lines, depending on where it is operating. It is based on the Class 319 dual-voltage EMU and was introduced in 1995 to carry parcels on electrified lines, and intended to replace the older generation of locomotive-hauled mail trains. Visually, the most striking feature is the presence of roller-shutter doors instead of sliding passenger doors, and of course the lack of windows. Commonly seen operating along the West Coast Mainline, East Coast Mainline and Edinburgh-Glasgow line, the Class 325 can carry up to 12 tons of mail in each car at speeds up to 100mph. The use of mail trains has been subject to regular policy changes in the last few years, but Class 325s still run several times a day in either 4, 8 or 12-car configurations.
Class 325 dual voltage EMU with the following vehicle types:
DTPMV – Driver Trailer Postal Mail Van MPMV – Motor Postal Mail Van TPMV – Trailer Postal Mail Van
Includes opening roller shutters, roller container mailbag trolleys, pantograph spark and more.
3 scenarios on the Oxford-Paddington route 3 scenarios on the West Coast Main Line North route (available separately) 1 scenario on the Portsmouth Direct Line route (available separately) Plus free roams

Railworks 3 seems like a typical train-geek's game, but it's more than this. In fact it's one of the best and most advanced train simulators. It has been expanded with multiple expansion packs, which usually add new trains, routes and scenarios. the Class 325 DLC is a perfect example of such DLC pack. For a typical player the most useful part of this addition may be the new scenarios, but for a trains fanatic the new engine and cars may be much more interesting enhancements. So I think this pack offers something to everybody who enjoyed RailWorks 3. And otherwise you wouldn't even consider buying it, would you?
